Sharing my first build based on MSI laptop. This laptop has a good CPU but pretty slow dGPU - 1050 2 GB. So I thought it would be nice to use something more powerful without moving to desktop (and save money).
I ordered all the spares (had to move storage from nvme to SATA) finally assembled it in two days - feel no bottleneck, the system works like a charm, and provides high performance even in 4k gaming.
- MSI GL63 8RC with i7 8750H; GTX 1050 2GB dGPU; DDR4-2666 16 GB; Crucial MX500 SSD SATA III; Windows version 2004 (May 2020)
- VIZIO M-Series Quantum 65" M658-G1 as a monitor
- ADT-Link R43SG-TU
- ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2070 DirectX 12 DUAL-RTX2070-O8G-EVO-V2 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6
- Corsair CX650M power supply
I used Ikea KNARREVIK and everything fits perfectly. Also I cut out a notch to ease gpu-m2 flat cable management.
I interconnected everything and did DDU in safe mode. After a restart I disabled dgpu + pcie bridge (turned off internet to prevent drivers autoupdate). Then, I tried to install nvidia drivers 451.48 but got BSOD (nvlddmkm.sys; PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA; SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION). I tried an older version 445.87 and it worked! Error 43 appears after the restart and was solved easily using Nando4's nvidia-error43-fixer. Then I updated it to 451.48 without any issues.
I wanted to know if you had changed parameters in the bios or that your eGPU was directly recognized by Windows
