    I've tried Samsung NVMe drivers v1.4.7.17 WHQL for Win7, but still out of luck.

    I was able to installed win7 64bit without the driver(if no uefi-only but legacy mode in bios), but it just boot into safe mode selection and won't pass it as picture shown below. Any solution? Thanks.

    Hello guys ! First of all thanx Phoenix for that guide .You are helping a lot of people that are not so techy and want to enjoy their nuc. I have still not got mine but im avidly read all the forums posts so that when it will come i can configure and use it as soon as possible as i already sold my previous desktop for that cutie. I cannot for sure install windows 10 , im seeing nightmares on the night appearing suddenly on my computer and i would prefer to put OS/360 than that thing. Well all good about drivers support and etc even if its a pain in the a** i think it's realy worth all the trouble but i just cant handle my new cutie to make 30 sec to boot the os. And now maybe my super noob question. If i install an AHCI SSD would it be better? i have seen that the Kingston HyperX Predator and Mushkin Atlas Vital are Nuc skull compatible. Is that protocol better supported in Win 7 ? Thanx for your time and again for your awesome guide.

    @Mr. Fox

    So tell me your settings to install Windows 7 in UEFI Mode and in RAID mode on NVMe SSDs

    Shall I enable CSM? Are your disks initialized as GPT or MBR

    When I tried installing in UEFI + GPT on the RAID Array, after the first restart in the setup phase, the Windows 7 splash screen loading just hangs and never continues to the setup
