When I start my laptop it only shows black screen and my wifi indicator is blinking orange/blue then it try to restart itself but same thing happens... But when I removed the expresscard or turn off the psu it boot to windows...
Can anyone help me? Thanks... 🙂
@jarold, Same Problem by he Here too with a 8460p. IT only boots by hotplug after Postscreen. Box t cant use graphicscard then. Ist IT even possible to boot without hotplug?
@gary_ist_egolos, have you solved your problem? We have the same exact problem, I just try to use it now but to no success. Please post if you have found a solutions. I realy need your assistand if you solved the problem? thanks in advance.
We have all the same issue, and gladly Iv solved it and im jumping upside down with joy! Here what I did, I unplug my GDP beast and the psu, and put my laptop into sleep mode. while onl sleep mode plug the GDP beast and plug the psu and press enter to your laptop. And Kaboom! the laptop will already recognize your gpu. But u need to do this everytime you want to use the external GPU. Try it, it works for me it might works n you too. Goodluck!
Well this is an oldy and so far I havent yet seen anyone who can boot elitebooks 8460p or similar with exp gdc connected to the express card slot. Not boot no restart possible at least for me.
I have my setup up and running this is what I do everytime. Disconnect egpu from express card slot. Switch on the PSU, Switch on the 8460p, select EGPU DIY, stop at gray menu, hotplug egpu to express card slot. Chain load os, select windows.
If anyone out there have come up with a solution that would permit boot and restarti without unpluging the egpu, would be much appreciated it. This was possible with a Lenovo I used to have.
My only concern is the express card slot springs.. dunno if continuos plug unplug would wear out contacts or springs...
