Before going by the instructions in that PDF, did you try disabling UEFI in the BIOS?
If your mouse+keyboard are wireless, you may need to use a wired USB keyboard to install the drivers for the wireless kbd+mouse.
The issue is: Windows 7 doesnt have USB3.0 drivers natively to support a device that it USB 3.0 only.
Please find the workaround here: Download Windows 7* USB 3.0 Creator Utility
This utility automates the process to create a Windows 7* installation image to include USB 3.0 drivers. The new installation image can then be used to install Windows 7 on Intel® NUC products that have only USB 3.0 ports.
The Readme includes:
- Instructions on using this utility
- Instructions for alternative methods of updating an image to include USB 3.0 drivers (DISM GUI and DSM Command Line)
I hope this helps,
Thanks for your reply. I am using Logitech wired mouse keyboard. Is it possible related with UEFI ?
Hello rguevara ,
Thanks for your info , I has been done the step that create a Windows 7* installation image to include USB 3.0 drivers.
I used DISM GUI method to done it. It helps me working fine on installation. But after installation , on the type username page , mouse keyboard not working.
Bought nuc6i3syk, Intel M.2 535 240BG, 8GB
Managed to update the USB3 driver into Windows 7 installation image into USB.
Mouse and Keyboard work fine after update. But the SSD can not be recognized by Windows 7.

Thanks for the reply.
Actually, I am able to install Linux (both Redhat and Suse).
The SSD is the only disk installed in nuc.
The Windows 7 Installation setup tell no disk to install Windows 7.
I search for SSD frimware update. It is all Windows's installation, but I am even not able to install the windows, how can I update the driver?
the disk selection is nothing in there. Try to go to diskpart, also nothing there except my USB flash.
Is anything that I am missing?
In the simplest of terms, you cannot install Windows 7 onto an Intel 600p Series M.2 NVMe SSD. Intel provides no drivers to support Windows 7 accessing the drive. Only Windows 10 will support it. I have also tried using the back-port of the Windows 10 driver into a Windows 7 image but the drive is not seen this way either. If you truly want to use Windows 7, you will need to use a drive from a manufacturer who provides drivers for Windows 7. This includes Samsung and Toshiba/OCZ.
