halohalo Posted June 27, 2020 Share Posted June 27, 2020 (edited) The three things users need to know before installing old versions of Windows 10 on NUC 10: 1. DSDT does not exist, so I can not install 32-bit Windows on NUC10i3FNH. 2. If I enable Thunderbolt in BIOS, Windows 10 x64 1607 or earlier gets stuck on black screen (UEFI) or messed up screen (LEGACY) when booting. 3. The error message "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed." appears if I install Windows 10 x64 1703 or earlier on a GPT partitioned drive by UEFI booting with modern standby enabled. And I found another error message "Failed to create a new system store. Status = [c0000001]" in setupact.log. To solve the second and third problem, I contacted Intel Support. Intel released BIOS FN0042 to change Thunderbolt boot default. And I found a workaround to the third problem. I solved the third problem by installing Windows 10 x64 1703 or earlier on an MBR partitioned drive by legacy booting with S3 standby enabled. Then I converted MBR to GPT by using MBR2GPT. Finally, I could use Windows 10 x64 1607 in UEFI mode with modern standby enabled. After a lot of trial and error, I learned that 1709 will become the minimum required version if someday Intel removes CSM support. I downloaded these drivers from Intel's website. INF or XML modification is required during installation of Intel Graphics, Wi-Fi, and HDA drivers. BIOS Update [FNCML357] (FN0042, withdrawn) Intel RST driver (188.8.131.529, withdrawn) Chipset INF Utility (10.1.18383.8213) Intel Graphics DCH drivers (184.108.40.20680) Intel Network Adapter driver for Windows 10 (25.0) Intel Wireless Bluetooth driver for Windows 10 (21.90.2) Windows 10 Wi-Fi drivers for Intel Wireless Adapters (21.90.3) Intel Serial IO driver for NUC (30.100.1947.3) ITE Tech CIR driver for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC 10 Kit (220.127.116.11) USB Type C Power Delivery Controller for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC (18.104.22.168) Genesys Chipset Device Software for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC 10 Kit (22.214.171.124) Realtek HDA driver for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC Kit (6.0.8791.1) I don't know how to install ISST driver in 1607, but I installed Display Audio driver 10.27 manually. Besides, I also found the control panel utility for SF314-58G from Acer's website. I want to play UHD Blu-ray disc on NUC10i3FNH, so I didn't install Intel ME consumer driver for Windows 10 64-bit for NUC Kit (19126.96.36.1993) because it only supports HDCP 2.2 and Advance Protected Audio/Video path. Intel Management Engine Interface driver (19188.8.131.520, for DELL Vostro 3590) Intel SGX driver for Windows (184.108.40.206) The ME driver from Intel contains MEI drivers. But the MEI driver from DELL contains MEI drivers, applications, and iCLS. Honestly speaking, similar names are confusing. The DCH version of MEI requires Windows 10 version 1709 or later, and it is hard to find CML compatible traditional MEI drivers. Most mini PC manufacturers provide MEI driver 19220.127.116.119 for CML, so I installed x86/x64 MEI driver for ASUS PN62 before I found compatible x64 MEI from DELL. The device ID of IMEI on NUC10i3FNH is 02E0. (Unlike CML, CML-V requires version 1809 or later) Old Intel SGX 1.x drivers are not compatible with NUC 10. Therefore I tried different SGX 2.x drivers because the online SGX test in CyberLink Ultra HD Blu-ray Advisor 2.0.3231 always failed with error code 394260080. I tried modifying INF files to install latest MEI and DCH version of SGX driver, but INF modification didn't work at all! I almost gave up until I found Corel Ultra HD Blu-ray check tool 18.104.22.168, which was released in May 2019. All offline tests were passed, including SGX test. Apparently the only way to find the answer was playing UHD Blu-ray disc. archgon MD-8102-U3-UHD-K (Pioneer BDR-UD04) CyberLink PowerDVD 20 Ultra Anyway, PowerDVD 20 Ultra plays UHD Blu-ray disc on NUC10i3FNH without major problem. The program activates HDR and 2160p@24Hz on LG 27GL850-B. Compared with Intel UHD 630, the integrated UHD Graphics in Core i3-10110U provides poor gaming performance, just like HD 610 Graphics in Pentium G4560.
