Let’s say you buy a machine or have a machine that’s only supported for every OS on the planet except for the one you intend to use. You can accept your fate – that you really don’t live with as much freedom as you want, or you can change your fate and hack drivers to get exactly what you want. This post will show you how to do option 2 (which by the way is the correct option to pick).
Since everybody loves the NUC, we are going to hack the crap out of the 6th gen net driver to install the very unsupported Server OS.
What you need:
- NUC net driver (I grabbed the Win10x64 one)
- Windows 10 Driver Kit (scroll down, the actual download is about halfway down the page – and for what it’s worth, I installed it using all the default settings)
- 7-zip (7-zip is king!)
