Thinkpad W540 + ADT-LINK + Apple TB3 to TB1/2 adapter problem
I can force the ADT-LINK to startup by setting the SW1 to position 2. Everything seems to work fine on the GPU side. However, I cannot get my laptop to recognize the egpu.
Can someone help me to figure out what I am doing wrong please?
Thank you for your answers.
The Thunderbolt 3 mainboard needs downstream power delivery from the host computer in order to work. Through the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt adapter, there's no PD and therefore the TB3 mainboard cannot power on.
Thanks for your answer.
Is there a way to power the TB3 mainboard by other means?
Edit 1: There is a 3.3V entry on my m.2 to TB3 board. I will try to figure out something.
Edit 2: Does not work 🙁
