Installation steps (what did you do to get it all going?)

Grab a moded bios at bios mods
Grab some egpu hardware, i use exp-gdc v8.5

Get gpu like 1060ti  u can go higher but u will be cpu bootlenecked .
U can aditionaly solder mpcie slot on motherboard if u got soldering skils .
In bios in memory configuration set tolud size to 2.5gb . dont need to disable or enable anything else . Hook up your hardware and before powering on hold D key on keyboard.
screen will flash few times and windows will boot. everything works out of box if u use external display however if u wanna use optimus u must buy diy egpu setup 1.35 software from nando4.
