    Restore NUC DC3217IYE to factory OS or?

    JamesT

      Hi All,

      We had the M2SSD drive die and have replaced it. Is there any special step-by-step to restore our NUC DC3217IYE OS. Basically I'm doing or needing to do a baremetal recovery? The OS is currently Windows 8 PRO for OEM

       

      Thanks.

          You mean the (M.1) mSATA SSD, don't you? (just picking on you )

           

          For process, need a questions answered: Do you have an offline backup that is stored on another PC or on an external HDD/SSD/SSHD?

           

          • If no backup, then you need to basically do a from-scratch installation of the O/S.
          • If backup on network, you need to also have created a Recovery flash drive. If you have such a flash drive, boot from it and restore from the network backup. If you don't make such a flash drive, you will need to install the O/S from scratch, install necessary drivers and LAN software and then you can restore from the network-based backup.
          • If backup on external drive, I believe that you can restore from this backup using the O/S install media (i.e. don't need to have created a Recovery flash drive).

           

          Hope this helps,
