The first time using a new microcontroller is what I call funstrating, especially if you don’t have clear instructions. We’ve done the hard work of figuring out the NodeMCU drivers and NodeMCU Arduino IDE setup for you. Read on for the two steps that have to be done only once. More helpful info at the end, too.

It is well-known that audio driver problem is the main cause of the audio stops working or is not functioning so to make the IDT High Definition audio codec now show and work normally in Windows 10, you need at first try to update the IDT High Definition audio codec drivers for Windows 10.
Installing NodeMCU drivers for USB
- Download the Arduino Software (IDE) Get the latest version from the download page. You can choose between the Installer (.exe) and the Zip packages. We suggest you use the first one that installs directly everything you need to use the Arduino Software (IDE), including the drivers. With the Zip package you need to install the drivers manually.
- When you have selected the formatting mode, click the “Yes” button to start burning Windows with network drivers to the bootable USB drive. If you did everything as described in the article, the process of downloading and installing the DriverPack program will be started. After it is completed, WinUSB will start unpacking Windows files.
This part of the instructions are written for Windows. They’re very similar for OSX and Linux.
Mostly these days devices download and install drivers on their own, automagically. Unfortunately as of writing this post when I plug a brand new NodeMCU into a new Windows 10 installation with a micro USB cable I get a warning message that says “USB Device Not Recognized – Device Descriptor Request Failed”.
Windows doesn’t know how to talk to the USB driver on the NodeMCU so it can’t figure out that the board is a NodeMCU and proceed normally. You’ll need to download the official driver and install it yourself.
The official NodeMCU drivers are here.
Download and extract the files, then run the Windows 10 installer. NodeMCU should now appear as a COM port on your Windows 10 computer.
Please post OSX-specific instructions them in the comments below.
Upgrade Arduino Boards Manager
We’re almost done! This next bit is pretty easy. Arduino has a list of possible microcontrollers (boards) that it can support if you ask it to add support. This does two useful things: it keeps the download smaller for them (less $) and it means new users are not swamped with lots of options they may never use. We need to add NodeMCU to the list of possible microcontrollers and then tell Arduion “Please download and install support for NodeMCU.”
Fire up Arduino IDE and go to File > Preferences.
In the field that says “Additional Boards Manager URLs” add “http://arduino.esp8266.com/stable/package_esp8266com_index.json” and hit OK. Now your Arduino IDE knows that NodeMCU boards exist.
go to Tools > Boards > Boards Manager
There are a lot of boards here! In the search field type “esp8266”, which is the name of the Wifi module at the heart of the NodeMCU.
You can see in my copy I’ve already installed the plugin. Click once anywhere on the description text. A button labelled “install” will appear nearby. The location is inconsistent, and IMHO the button should always be visible if the plugin has not been installed. Click it and the installation process will begin. As of this writing it has to download ~150mb of data. Once it’s done, close the Boards Manager.
To back to Tools > Boards and you will find the list is now quite a bit longer.
Choose your flavor of NodeMCU (probably 1.0 ESP-12E Module) and start coding.
NodeMCU example sketches
Examples for any given board type should appear under File > Examples. Examples are tailored to the type of board that you have currently selected. If you don’t see any NodeMCU or ESP examples, double check that you have Tools > Boards > [your NodeMCU flavor] selected. One time I changed board type to UNO and all my NodeMCU examples vanished. So confusing!
- Sketch upload time is long compared to UNO or Mega. Still worth it!
- When using digitalWrite(), use digitalWrite(D0) instead of digitalWrite(0) and so on. Pin mapping on the NodeMCU is weird.
- Wifi sketches need the SSID and password of your local Wifi network in order to connect. In the top of most sketches you’ll find a field “….” that should be replaced with your wifi SSID and/or wifi password.

The need to install Windows from a bootable USB flash drive arises quite often, and, probably, many, faced the problem of the lack of network and WIFI drivers to access the Internet when you first start Windows after installation. Access to the Internet may be required at least to load drivers required by the operating system for the correct operation of most applications and games. It should be noted that some laptop and computer vendors attach a disk with the necessary drivers to their products. In this case, after installing the operating system, you can use such disk and now you will have enough short tutorial for creation a bootable USB stick for Windows installation using WinUSB or an instruction for experienced users to create a bootable USB flash drive with Windows manually.
Ide For Windows 10 Pro
If you do not have a disk with drivers, then for normal computer use, it’s not enough just to install Windows from a USB flash drive. It is necessary to ensure that there is a universal set of drivers on your bootable USB flash drive, sufficient for access to the network and download the rest of the drivers for the computer on which you install the operating system.
Today I want to propose a new solution to the problem voiced above. Beginning with version 22.214.171.124, WinUSB has the ability not only to create a bootable USB flash drive to install Windows 7,8,10, but also to automatically download the DriverPack network program and then install it on your bootable USB drive. DriverPack network will install all necessary network drivers, after which, will offer to download the rest from the Internet. You can read more about this program on DriverPack official site.
So, let’s start, firstly, to create a bootable USB flash drive, in any case, we need an installation image or a DVD with Windows, if you do not have neither one, then you can read here how to download Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft website. Now that you have the Windows installation image, you need to download and run the latest version of WinUSB, the download will start by click of the button below.

First you need to select a USB flash drive in the drop-down list under the name of the WinUSB version, as shown in the screenshot below. The upper horizontal line under the name of the selected flash drive will display the ratio of free and used space on the thumb drive, the lower line will show the place on the flash drive, which will be required to make it multiboot with the selected Windows distribution and the DriverPack program.
Choose Windows distribution and DriverPack program
The Windows distribution can be selected in the standard dialog box to select a file or directory by clicking one of the round buttons in the screenshot above – ISO or DVD, depending on the type of distribution that you have. After the distribution is selected, it will be displayed in the application, as shown in the screenshot below. Immediately after selecting the distribution, a small window will appear “Enter the name”, where you will be asked to specify the name of the boot menu item on your flash drive corresponding to the chosen distribution, by default there will be the name of the ISO file, or the name of Windows version for DVD.
To add DriverPack to your bootable USB drive, you need select it in the “Drivers” tab of the form that opens by clicking on the “OS & Drivers” button, as shown in the screenshot below.
After clicking on the button “Add DriverPack”, WinUSB will check that the archive with the DriverPack program is available, if the file is available for download, it will be displayed as well as the Windows distribution in the list of programs that will be burn to the USB flash drive, as it is shown in the screenshot below. It should be noted that before installing DriverPack to the bootable USB flash drive, WinUSB downloads the program archive into a temporary folder on the computer, so you need 422MB of free space on the hard disk, if the temporary space is not enough, WinUSB will warn you about it and indicate the disk on which you need to free up required space.

Well, when you chose the Driver Pack and the Windows distribution to write to the USB flash drive, it remains to indicate whether you need to format it before making it bootable.
If there is enough free space for burning Windows and DriverPack on the USB flash drive, then WinUSB can make it bootable without formatting and deleting data. If space is not enough, WinUSB will prompt you to perform formatting. In any case, you can click the “Back” button, free up additional space on the USB flash drive, deleting unnecessary files, WinUSB will notice it automatically and the next time you go to the formatting settings, you will be asked to make the USB flash drive bootable without formatting. Note, don’t ask WinUSB format to Fat32 USB drive bigger than 32Gb!
When you have selected the formatting mode, click the “Yes” button to start burning Windows with network drivers to the bootable USB drive. If you did everything as described in the article, the process of downloading and installing the DriverPack program will be started. After it is completed, WinUSB will start unpacking Windows files.
Note. When the Windows installation is complete, you can start DriverPack by launching the DriverPack.exe file in “WinUSBDriverPack” directory on your bootable USB stick.

After the process is complete, you will see a notification, like on the screenshot below.
Excellent! Now you have a bootable USB flash drive with Windows installer and network drivers that will allow you to download all the other necessary drivers during the first operating system startup. if you need to burn more distributions on the USB stick, just repeat the process illustrated in this article without downloading DriverPack. If you will execute the process without formatting, then all new ISO files will be written next to the already existing ones on the your multiboot USB drive!

Important: Bootable flash drives created using the WinUSB program support the ability to boot in UEFI mode with the NTFS file system, but to successfully run the Windows installation, you need to disable UEFI secure boot option.
