Setup 1.30 Discussion

Recommended Posts

That is really cool

Would be much less of a pain in the ass compared to my mpcie setup that I currently suffer through with ( I need to figure out a good way to make a door to my slot)

Hi Tech Inferno Fan, I have an adapter PE4C with a GTX 560Ti connected to a mPCIe port. I have also purchased the egpu setup 1.30 but know I don't know what to do next. The egpu is being detected, all the drivers are loaded and fully working (no errors of any kind on device manager), and the egpu setup is installed correctly but there is no video output signal from my graphic card. My graphic card is connected to a TV with a mini HDMI adapter (it has no HDMI port) and I know is it not a hardware issue ( graphic card has been tested and it is working). Can you please tell me if I have to modify anything on the egpu setup? My laptop is Acer Aspire M5. I have tried some things like doing a 32, 36, and 64-bits PCI compaction to the IGPU and EGPU and it doesn't seems to work. Also if I do a PCI compation to "all the PCI device except for Sata, xxxx, xxxx, xxxx, etc" it gives and error with the options "Abort, Retry, and Fail". To be honest I don't fully understand what PCI compation does. I was just following some youtube videos. I'm running the chainload on MBR mode.

I hope you can help me.

Thanks in advance!!

The "Abort, retry fail" error can be solved by aborting, then going back into Setup 1.30 -> PCI compaction -> edit pci.bat. Change all references of "a:x.y" to be "0a:x.y", "b:x.y" to be "0b:x.y", "c:x.y" to be "0c:x.y" and so on up to f:x.y, where x.y are any values.

FYI: you shouldn't be doing 64-bit PCI compaction unless you have a DSDT override in place.

Pls contact me via email if need more help, supplying the results of doing Save Diags->compact_fails to help me understand your system.

Hello all

I have successfully set up an egpu solution with a former computer (using setup 1.x). Now I am using a Asus n53sn with exp gdc adapter + 970 GTX. Unfortunately the BIOS is locked with no many options left, and windows is not able to boot with the egpu. However doing a hot plug of the egpu makes it work ... with the famous error 12. First of all, I would like to get rid of the boot error, but I don't know how to do it with setup.

Thanks for your help !

I'm always confused by the bandwidth of TB/TB2 powered eGPU. As most thunderbolt pci-e chassises only have x4 electric connection, if I'm right, they only provide 5Gbps bandwidth. That is no more than a express card connection and much less than TB/TB2 bandwidth. So TB/TB2 is no better than the traditional Express card implementation. Correct me if I'm wrong.

i heard about "performance loss" is max %10 on external monitor. bu there is almost %40 performance loss. i have y510p + gtx770 and my graphics score is 6900.. its same % for loss :Banane24:

Per DSDT override page, if you still have error12 then need Setup 1.30 to allocate the eGPU in a preboot environment into the 'large memory' area created. I can help you along with that.

HI

I want to know If I purchase the Setup 1.3 to use it in Win10, I might use eGPU like in Win 8.1.

Hello!
 

I have been using my GTX 960 through my laptop's mPCIe port for a couple of months now on Windows 10.

However, when I switch on my computer with the cable attached, and SW2 on the PE4C-PM100C set to 2, sometimes it

doesn't work. This is really frustrating, because this issue seems to be completely random, as in sometimes it detects the eGPU

and sometimes it wont, and I can't find any consistent way of doing so. 

 

Setup specs:

-Windows 10, 64 bit

-Asus Vivobook s500ca

-Asus Strix OC DirectCU II GTX 960

-PE4C-PM100C on mPCIe

-180 Watt power supply

 

Solutions I have tried (But failed):

-Opening BIOS on startup, waiting, then exiting back to Windows

-Change the switch settings, using multiple combinations

-Hot-plugging the cable while in Windows, which causes a red screen (of death)

 

I greatly appreciate any help and suggestions!

 

-Aerostar

 

P.s. If you need any more information just ask!

P.p.s. Pressing F8 on boot doesn't work D:

Hello guys

 

I have some problem regarding to implementing eGPU on Acer V3-772G-9822 with EXP GDC Beast. Here is the specification

 

Notebook: Acer V3-772G-9822

OS: Windows 8.1 64bit

CPU: i7-4702MQ

iGPU: Intel 4600

dGPU: GTX760M

Adapter: EXP GDC Beast

eGPU (Plan): ASUS STRIX GTX960 DC2OC 2GDDR5

 

Yesterday I was tried to get the eGPU work by replacing the mPCIE wifi slot with my eGPU adapter. After I push the power button, the external monitor shows nothing but no signal warning, both HDMI slot on laptop and eGPU have the same result. But then I somehow managed to get the GTX960 show on the device manager using "sleep system, swap wifi card for mPCIe eGPU adapter method" (https://forum.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/8747-mpcie-egpu-troubleshooting-steps/#post149873) but with code 12 and hang right after reboot.

 

After all I realize my acer hang before the BIOS load up, turn out it may related to the #PERST problem ( https://forum.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/8350-pe4x-series-understanding-clkreq-and-perst-delay/&_fromLogin=1 ). This morning I block the PERST signal by placing a small tape over the pin 22. This time the acer boot  successfully to the OS with eGPU connected, the eGPU fan is spinning and all things go well until I found out that the acer fail to recognize my eGPU.

 

Even I tried with "DIY eGPU Setup 1.3x", enable the wifi port and do a rescan, reboot and rescan or using the sleep method before. The laptop still cannot catch the eGPU signal. 

 

Did anyone have the same experience with me? Any possible solutions? Please help guys and thank you!

Per https://forum.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/8747-mpcie-egpu-troubleshooting-steps/#post149873 did you try to jumper the PSU to be always on rather than the EXP GDC powering it on upon detecting 3.3V? It's possible to jumper the Dell DA-2 (as explained in the Dell DA-2 thread) but easier with an ATX PSU if you have one handy. Even if just for testing purposes.

I wish to try. But I am uncertain to deal with psu due to lack of skills and knowledge of this area and may eventually risk my equipment or even my life. Is there an alternative? :(

It looks far more easier with an ATX PSU, I have the very same problem as you and I plan to buy one and test it out soon.

Great but be careful when connecting the 4-pin cable, it seems a fault connection will result killing the entire eGPU.

I had used my first Beast for couple of days and then I broke it by connecting wrong 4-PIN power cable from ATX PSU - be very careful when you first connect it, then bought a replacement and have been using it heavily for 3 month now with no Gen2 glitches.  (https://forum.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/7625-17-acer-v3-771g-gtx980ti4gbps-mpcie2-exp-gdc-beast-win764-rgpu/)

One more thing to add is the V3-772G did not have any white listing in their BIOS, claim by the Acer Technician himself

Quote

Acer-Justin: We do not have any whitelists for the SSD, wireless, or BT because we only tested what we put in those connections/slots. There are other pieces of hardware that may/will work in those connections/slots. (http://community.acer.com/t5/V-and-VN-Series/Acer-Aspire-V3-772G-unknown-Motherboard-port-and-mPCI-E/td-p/357012)

Update: Bought an ATX PSU today, plugged everything in and tried to turn on the system without a jumper, nothing happened, not a fan running or a light. Looks like I'm going on the right path.

Update 2: I pluged the wrong 4 pins, now it is all the same again. The GPU fan runs like hell but nothing happens.

Well, I'm not sure if the EXP GDC got broken when setting up all of this but if I re enable port 22, it got freeze at bios, it means the EXP GDC still work right?

i decided to get an egpu and i purchased the diy setup and im going thru it and im trying to follow some of the tutorials and they are all over the place and some of them only last like 15 seconds which is kinda of ridiculous to follow so when i start off my egpu isnt detected so i do the unplug thing and i follow the pci compaction to 32 bit and i go to the dos prompt and enter the iport bridge command but i really have no idea what im doing after that any kind of help would be greatly appreciated.

Please help me.

I have an Asus K45VM with dGPU GT630M and Intel Core i7 and a eGPU with GTX750.

I'm trying to use the SETUP but is showing white screen when Windows starts.

I realized that when trying to select iGPU+eGPU, a message appears "no solution found". 

What should I do? Sorry for bad english, i speak Portuguese :P

hello. can anyone comment on whether I'll have any luck with setup 1.3 and my hardware below?

Hardware etc.
PE4L v2.1b w/ expresscard/34 adapter
HP Probook 4530s i3 (HD3000)
OSX 10.11 via Clover UEFI (hackintosh)
ASUS ENGTX460 video card
 
Is it going to be possible to use setup 1.3 to help me run the above system in osx 10.11? You mention setup working for for macbooks but maybe that is only over TB and not expresscard? Also I thought I read something about needing a MBR (non-UEFI) windows 7 installation in your notes for the setup 1.3 software.
 
I know there are other people who have been successful with setup 1.x and windows 7 on the the 4530s, but I'm looking for some El Capitan love. 
 
Also I think my bottleneck is going to be the 2.5 gt/s of the expresscard slot, but maybe its the GTX460.
