    Thunderbolt Driver


      I just purchased a Intel Nuc 6i7KYK for a live streaming/HD video broadcasting setup for our church.  I have the camera connected to the Thunderbolt and Nuc but nothing happens.  Can someone provide some details to how to install the driver or what is necessary to get the Nuc to recognize the thunderbolt and cameras.

              Basic question - is there a white box with a blue circle that has the lightning symbol or "Thurderbolt" in your system tray ?
            On Windows 10 its on the lower right hand corner just inside, to the left, of the speaker and WiFi symbol then date/time.


               Windows 10 Pro did not have the thunderbolt driver. Wanted to make sure it was there. If not, here is the driver list page:   Download Thunderbolt™ Bus Driver for Windows® 10 for Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK


                You may also have to "Allow connections to device" as Win X, Windows 10 is locked down.


               Here is one bit of news - Thunderbolt shows up under "System" under Device manager. Open device manager, expand system which should be second from the bottom. Scroll down to just above Universal Serial bus. Thunderbolt 1517 (or some number) should show up. If not, the driver is not recognized. Under ' View" at the top, next to 'File' and 'Action" you can turn on "Show hidden devices"
                 Try that. Let us know.

                   Hi. As a secondary question - are there any hardware diagnostics that can be run on the NUC to test the thunderbolt controller and port ?

                  Hello TechnoCaveman 
                  To answer your question, I was checking on our downloadcenter.intel.com site and I did not find any thunderbolt diagnostic tool.

                    Leonardo C,


                       Thanks. (smiles) I will put it on my 2018 Christmas list.


                        Even a loop back device would be nice to certify the controller and connector at full speed. We used to build NULL modem connectors where TX/RX was transposed for loop back testing. I know its a 1970's kind of thing but was very helpful.
