I've been seeing posts about issues with the m.2 SSDs on the NUC5i7 while running the latest BIOS. Perhaps try downgrading to a previous BIOS, then see if the install works.
If you are trying to install the last Windows® 10 November update 1511, it is necessary to use the Windows® update utility and it requires activating the Windows® 10 product key first (license).
I'm not sure I understand completelly. Do you mean that it works only if I update an existing installation?
I have a license for Windows 10 and it is activated. I was running it in VirtualBox and I am now trying to use it in the NUC instead, so I can't upgrade.
If I'm missing something, and there is an update utility that allows me to install Windows, can you please provide me a link to it or some explanation about how it works.
I searched but didn't find anything that could help.
I have had that happen to me as well. If you haven't tried again, try again. Also, if it just won't work try recreating the ISO. I like to use a program called Rufus: Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way
There isn’t a file on how to install the operating system with the latest update 1511 included yet; however, we already received several threads in regards the latest Windows® 10 update. There are many Intel® and OEM systems with HDDs and graphics issues.
If it is possible, try to install Windows® 10 without the latest update included in order to narrow down the issue.
The thread below was created by our Engineer supervisor; it is an official Intel® documentation in regards Windows® 10 update 1511. It is related to the Compute Stick.
