I would like to know which is the current BIOS version on your NUC.
The latest USB 3.0 drivers available in our site are the following https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldID=23734
Please try using this version and let me know your findings.
You can also try doing a system restore on your computer to the last working state.
On my Intel N2820 I currently have the BIOS Version 0040 installed and experienced Windows 7 blue screens using the USB 3.0 Version 184.108.40.206 Driver.
Today I noticed that the BIOS Version 0041 has just been released. I will install this today and test with the USB 3.0 Version 220.127.116.11 Driver.
Please reply back with your findings once you are able to install the drivers, Heustroh.
Thanks a lot.
Using BIOS Version 0041 I still get Windows 7 stop errors (blue screens) using USB3.0 Version 18.104.22.168 Driver. So I de-installed the USB 3.0 Driver again and system works so far.
Excellent. Please let me know if the issue returns, but I hope it won’t.
Maybe there is some misunderstanding, but to me this is far from excellent. I went through a lot of efforts in order to identify the USB 3.0 driver as the root cause for the Windows 7 stop errors (BSOD) and in the end the only solution is to use the standard USB 2.0 driver. As a consequence data transfer to my external hard disk is much slower. I still hope that eventually Intel can fix the USB 3.0 driver issue.
I really appreciate your feedback Heustroh.
