Well, this morning i was quite happy because my NUC came with the mail.
Installed everything :
Kingston Technology SSDNow - M.2 - 120GB
Corsair Value Select - DDR4-2133 SO-DIMM - 16GB
Connected it to a screen, put a usb stick in the computer with Windows 7 on it.
It started , began with the installation, but when it was at about 70% expanding files for installation or something after copying, i got a error 0x8007025d
So i started searching on the problem and found numerous solutions.
I have taken out the ram memory one by one and tested again and again to install.
Then i updated the bios to 00033 , the latest version at this moment.
Also had to reboot it by holding on/off switch and even take out of the power plug because the bios hanged 2 times when changing a setting that it did not seem to like......
Checked to be sure in the horrible bios if the settings for the hard disk here on AHCI since i got later some other problems , windows setup telling me that the both harddisks where maybe not supported for booting.
I got this problem solved by pressing Shirt / F10 at the install screen.
Using Diskpart / list disk / Sel disk X / clean / set primary etc etc.
So i thought well this would do it, but i was wrong, after 84% it hang again, suddenly gave a blue screen that i then googled again
Did not came far with many of the solutions and tried again after some reboots and even downloaded another image from Microsoft with windows 8 to see if this would work.
This looked promising when i tried to install it again but after a little while the install screen disappears and there we go again :
I have been busy from this morning 8.00 Am till now 6.28 PM getting this working......
Then i thought, let's try to install a 32Bit version, and within 15 minutes or so i have windows running.
Not knowing that windows 7 did not support usb3 drivers , so i could not enter a name or move the mouse, found this solution here on the forums.
But this tells me that the hardware does seem to work right ?
Only when trying to get X64 i get all kinds of problems, such a waste of Ram memory
So anyone, please , this is freaking me out at the moment after so many hours of ruined time that i could have used for rebuilding my home , hmm.
Hope someone has an idea what to do because i am thinking to return this piece of ....... also better could have read on the forum since i see that there are already strange bugs and many NUC's that died after a few days.
I do not hope this is one of those batches that dies on me when it finally works.
