Thank you for the initial feedback
1) I have tried multiple ports, rear and front and even via usb hub ( with external power supply) ... same issue
2) happens only with this device, see a screen shot below of the Seagate app. sleep is set to never (although I wish I didnt have to do that)
3) I am not sure when it happens, I actually dont even know if nuc falls asleep, since the wake up is super fast, maybe the log file will specify this? let me know
4) attached the log
nucLog.txt.zip 25.3 K
Enter Bios setup (press F2 during boot).
In Advanced->Devices->USB, check if the USB port where your external drive is connected is set to Enabled.
I dont belive this is the issue, since If i take the cable in and out I see the device and its working
so the port is enabled
I double cheched
all ports are enabled
1. In your first post you have mentioned that the Windows 10 was transferred as is from your old PC. After installing the drive with Windows in NUC, did you have installed also all NUC drivers downloaded from Intel site:Downloads for Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i3BNH ? If you didn't, you shall do it. Start with the Management Engine driver and the Chipset driver. Reboot your NUC and install all other drivers (the sequence can be random). You may reboot the NUC only once, after the last driver is installed.
2. Did you make some changes in Bios settings (may be secure boot)? Try to set bios to default settings: enter bios, press F9 (followed by "y") and press F10 (confirm with "y").
I Will look into this tongiht.i did run an update from your websites but I don't believe the process had completed yet
Anyway if I try a fresh install what would be the right ways to do this?format the disk and run it from USB or ask Windows to do this format during the process
i ran it again
for some reason the driver update assistant keeps specifying that these 2 drivers need update
1) intel managment engine
June 19, 2017
Installs the Intel® Management Engine components for Windows® 10 for Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i3BN, NUC7i5BN, and NUC7i7BN.
2) intel ethernet connection
September 10, 2017
This download record installs the LAN driver for Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i[x]BN with the Intel® Ethernet Connection I219-V using Windows® 10.
even though I have installed and rebooted multiple times they keep coming up
If your have installed Windows, you don't need to reinstall the Windows in order to install Intel drivers. Download the drivers from the link I've given you in my post #7 above. Install the drivers manually. Do not use Driver Update Assistant, as this application is still not fully debugged and gives false indications.
Install in the sequence I've have written in my post #7 above.
After installing the Chipset driver and the Management Engine driver still you have problem with your drive?
Just to throw my two cents in here, I *never* recommend moving a Windows installation from one system to another if these systems are from different processor/chipset generations. There can be issues in the base chipset support and with the Windows HAL. Reinstalling drivers does not, in some cases, alleviate all of these issues.
If you are going to do a reinstall, I recommend that you remove all partitions on the system drive and let Windows choose how it then partitions this drive. You can remove the partitions manually during the Windows installation process using the edit commands on the drive selection scene. Then tell Windows to install to the unallocated space (which should now encompass all of the drive).
Hope this helps,
i want to install a new windows on this machine
I have a 250GB SSD Samsung Evo.
I am using a single partition for windows and then another physical hard drive for data/backup/media
would you setup it up differently?
No, I would do it just like that. The BNH NUC has a socket for an M.2 based SATA or NVMe SSD and a bay for a 2.5" SATA SSD/HDD/SSHD. I would let Windows (and the Windows installer) manage how the space on the M.2 SSD is used and then use the 2.5" SATA SSD/HDD/SSHD for your data.
BTW, I also recommend using a SSHD for your data drive. Seagate's 2TB 2.5" SSHD can be purchased for not that much more than their standard 2TB 2.5" HDD (US$90 vs. US$85 on Amazon) and offers improved throughput in many cases (here's a review worth reading: Seagate FireCuda Review - The Best SSHD for 2017? - Nerd Techy).
Hope this helps,
To make sure I understand, you are saying that the NUC has a place inside for 2 disks?
I thought just one SSD (small in size)
I guess you dont mean that we can fit Seagate's 2TB 2.5" SSHD inside the nuc - right?
