1.creation of dsdt-modified.dsl  file 
 
        a) use for extraction DSDT editor and also, in my case, for correcting errors.
         https://cgc.com.kw/category/computers/egpu/
        I was able to create DSDT override file in couple of minutes.

        b) use this guide to create dsdt-modified file (intel method)

         https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/fix-dsdt-override-to-correct-error-12/

        It is necessary to fix errors in dsdt-modified.dsl file.In this part my source of knowledge was again DSDT  editor and , i correct the dsdt-modified.dsl file like DSDT editor did  with help of PSPad (compare two documents function).

 

2. compile of dsdt-modified.dsl file

3. DSDT substitution with  bug fixed  setup 1.35  and 36 bit compaction
and finally after reboot, well done commander

 

 

p.s. thank you Nando for fast support

Hey, I own a 8460p laptop and I was wondering how you connected it to a eGPU and what would I need for it. I've seen guides, but I really just want to know from somebody who has done it... I believe the only way to connect one is through opening up my laptop, so I just wanted to know how you did it.

Your 8460P has an expresscard slot above the DVD near the front which will have an ejectable blank. Just push it in and eject the blank.  You can see it below:

 

Please refer to the following article to see a picture of an expresscard eGPU, the pros/cons of expresscard and the recommended eGPU adapter for you: https://egpu.io/expresscard-2-0-egpu-interface-pros-cons-candidate-notebook-list/

Sorry one more thing, A External LCD as I am a aware is a external monitor? And basically All I need to buy is the adapter and video card, (I hear optimus, is a software for eGPUs)

Hello, yes, I use exactly  that express card slot on the picture above.

 You need   Express card Cable Compatible Type 34/54 Interface which is used to connect, it is more comfortable then opening case and  this solution  is also gentle to the cable (my last configuration was connected inside and very soon cable was broken).

With external monitor you will have better performance, if you have  iGPU HD 3000 and external Nvidia card (compatibe with optimus drivers) , you can use optimus drivers to  speed up performance for internal LCD display.

Thanks for all the help, I was planning to use this GPU but if it will run faster with a Nvidia Video cardI might concider another one. This laptop has a pretty decent CPU and I was wondering what kind of games I could play even on Low

1 - Must i desactivate the Discrete Graphic , and only run under HD3000 for DSDT Operation ?

2 - Must i connect EGPU GDC EXP + Quadro 4000 for DSDT Operation or not ?

 

Thanks for your help 🙂

 now I understand ,you have on your notebook integrated HD intel graphic and some dedicated graphic card , so i think you don't have to do DSDT override if you have setup 1.x from nando4

i found here information below> http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/diy-egpu-experiences.418851/#firststeps

"10. My system has switchable graphics. Can I still do install a DIY eGPU?

Yes you can. Setup 1.x's (Video card->Hybrid Graphics.dedicated=off) allows the dedicated graphics component to be completely disabled on Series-5 or older chipsets, freeing up 32-bit resources to host the desktop eGPU. If your primary video card is a Intel 4500MHD, HD, HD3000 or HD4000 then can even do a x1.Opt NVIDIA setup"

 

so for answer question 1: if you turn off dedicated card you will have enough resources for eGpu card(no need for dsdt override) , but i think you need setup 1.35 to allocate eGpu. If dedicated card is enabled , you have to do dsdt override to free resources for eGpu.

I think the scenario with setup 1.35 will be faster then do dsdt override and less stressful ,but i am not expert in this case, ask

nando4

Hi. One question about the 8460p:
Can you remove the CPU heatsink just after taking off the bottom cover? without further disassembly?

Source pdf file:HP maintance manual

Before removing the heat sink, follow these steps:

1. Shut down the computer. If you are unsure whether the computer is off or in Hibernation, turn

the computer on, and then shut it down through the operating system.

2. Disconnect all external devices connected to the computer.

3. Disconnect the power from the computer by first unplugging the power cord from the AC outlet,

and then unplugging the AC adapter from the computer.

4. Remove the battery (see Battery on page 63).

5. Remove the bottom door (see Bottom door on page 70).

6. Remove the fan (see Fan on page 90).

Remove the heat sink:

1. Position the computer upside-down with the front toward you.

2. In the order indicated on the heat sink, loosen the captive Phillips screws (1) that secure the

heat sink to the system board. The discrete heat sink has six screws, while the UMA heat sink

has four screws. Both heat sinks are illustrated below.

3. Lift the right side of the heat sink up at an angle (2).

Hi, i own an HP elitebook 8440p. Could i still prefrom a similar setup? I have an express card slot.

i havent seen anyone do an eGPU setup with a 8440p so im hoping an 8460p will be similar enough.

@@windscape, yes, a 8440P can use an eGPU. I've helped an offline user set up their eGPU on a 8440P.

Ah ok. I have 1 question. I heard if u have integrated graphics, you can setup an eGPU without an external monitor, but if u already have discrete graphics, you need an external monitor. Is this true?

Hi everyone. New member. I have 2 HP Elitebook 8460p laptops I'm hoping to up grade to a eGPU. My reasoning, I'm not a gamer, but a mobile DJ and I'm hoping this upgrade will allow me to offer more video add on to a client. The DJ software I use has a extensive amount of video features I'd like to use. Not music videos, but thing like live dance floor cameras, slide shows, text message apps, etc. My main DJ laptop is an HP Pavilion DV7 with dGPU. It can handle some video features of the software but can be a bit slow and won't allow HD video without a lot of lag.

I know these upgrades are not meant to be mobile, but I have a small extra DJ rack case in which I can install all the components to include an external monitor, wireless keyboard and mouse.

Anyway, hoping this would be a more cost effective and an equally or more powerful solution to buying and new gaming laptop of building a desktop.

Thanks

I'v also found out this laptop can be upgraded from and i5 to an i7. If the part is available, would the change be worth it?

Hi , hard to say if it is worth. Like a player it si easy to  aproximetly calculate  3D  performance  for example in 3D mark. 
In my case I  use egpu also for CAD aplication and diference between old Intel HD 3000 igpu and egpu is big but it is still 3D aplication.
