Hello. I have the BOXNUC6I5SYK (new 6th generation) and have installed 8GB (2x4) of Corsair RAM (CMSO8GX4M1A2133C15) and the m.2 Samsung 250GB SSD. I am trying to install Windows 10 from a bootable USB. Everything boots fine, I get to the part where I select the partition to install on, on the next screen the countdown begins and every single time, Windows crashes with a BSOD during the progress bar. The error message varies, but this time the error was CACHE_MANAGER. Last time it was MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. The only thing consistent is that I can't get past this screen without a BSOD.
I have tried the install with two different SSDs, two different NUCs, and with only one memory chip (I have tried both chips separately). I have tried the install with different USB drives and different versions of Windows (I tried both Windows 8 and 8.1). Obviously, it's got to be me. I have installed several older generation NUCs with no problem at all. Can you tell me if there are any tricks to installing Windows on the new NUCs? I am completely lost with this problem.
