    Not able to install windows10 on  nuc with burned windows10 iso on flashdrive

    idanf

      I have nuc version:5i5RYH.

      Iam trying to install windows10 on it

       

      I have flashdisk (SanDisk) Cruzer Glide 32GB which I prepared via my other macbook in order to burn window10 iso in it.

       

      So i formatted the usb with FAT32(also tried fatExt) and burned  into it windows10(Win10_1709_English_x64)

       

      After validating the flashdisk with the windows installation  I plugged it into my nuc the USB  and choose to boot from it -> Failed!

       

      seems like NUC never manage to boot via that flashdisk.

      I have no idea why.. i tried couple of times.

       

      So what I did next?

       

      upgrade the nuc's bios settings (using the same USB stick I downloaded an official bios version from intel website) and right now after the upgrade I have the following

      BIOS VERSION:

       

      RYBDWi35.86A.0367.2017.0929.1059

      my current processor: Intel R i5-525ou CPU @ 1.6

       

      Even after upgrading, again trying to boot via the USB stick which has the windows10 iso. no success.

       

      inside the boot screen I have the boot order screen:

      at the UEFI tab i see:

      Boot driver order : No Boot drive

       

      at the Legacy tab under the Boot drive order I do see the USB stick item in the list (sanDisk cruzer Glide 1.26), together with the SSD drive.

       

      Any idea why (or how) can I actually install windows 10 on my NUC? what am I doing wrong?

       

       

      (p.s before I tried to install WINDOWS i had a successfull installation of openELEC)

       

      Thank you,
