How to proceed rock install with a NUC having windows OS?

easy question I suppose but I don’t want to make silly mistake :slight_smile:

I have a NUC on which I want to install rock.
this NUC has for now windows on it.
should I do anything before i boot with rock Linux usb key?
or should I simply follow the rock install instructions without taking into account windows installed OS?
will it self erase windows stuffs and work automatically?

thanks! :slight_smile:

As long as you can disable fast boot and enable legacy boot it should reformat the drive and work just fine.

If you want to use the nuc with windows at a later time, you might take the drive out and save it, replacing it with a small drive for ROCK

Hi JC I would recommend updating the firmware and BIOS using the Intel tool before you begin the install.

They may already be up to date, but worth checking and making sure.
