Hi:

 

The easiest thing to do would be to install W7 via a DVD.

 

Otherwise you have to run this utility to put the required USB3 drivers into your W7 installation flash drive.

 

There is a readme link on the webpage for how to use the utility.

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25476/NUCs-Windows-7-USB-3-0-Creator-Utility

 

Unfortunately many folks have issues tying to install W7 with a USB flash drive, so if that doesn't work, unfortunately I don't have any other suggestions for you to try.

 

But that is why you are getting that message.

Hi There,

 

Thanks a lot! The solution provided by you worked. I have been installing windows from a couple of years but I encountered this issue first time. 

 

Thanks again, you taught me something new.
