Setup 1.30 Discussion

Recommended Posts

Bought today DIY e-GPU Setup 1.30 by Nando4 an made it work in about 2 minutes, no need for DSDT override and most important I have not lost my precious time!

 

-I'm using PE4H v2.4, ONLY PCIe GEN 1-

 

Soon I'll buy this PE4C V3.0 suggested by Nando for enhanced performance respect my actual eGPU adaptor (PE4H v2.4).

Hello, can someone help me out here, I'd like to know how to accomplish 32-bit compaction on "dGPU and eGPU" on my AMD (non-intel) chipset seeing as I don't have gui-type options to do so with DIY eGPU Setup. Thanks.

Hello!

 

I have successfully connected ASUS GTX 960 to my notebook ASUS Q501LA running Windows 10.

I had the error 12 but it was fixed by DSDT patch. It was working OK.

 

However, i didn't find any way to use custom DSDT in Windows 10 without using the TESTSIGNING mode (i need to turn this mode off due to Bohemia Battleye service (ARMA 3) which is not starting with TESTSIGNING ON).

So i installed Windows 7 in UEFI mode to use the custom DSDT without this TESTSIGNING mode. After i applied the custom DSDT i received the  Large Memory entry but the error 12 is still showing. I tried to delete the video adapter and pcie roots from device manager and then reboot but it didn't help.

 

My question is:

1. Will the Setup 1.30 work with my Windows 10 Pro UEFI OS?

2. Will the Setup 1.30 work with my Windows 7 Ultimate UEFI OS?

3. Is there any other way to get rid of error 12?

 

Thanks!

Hi,

I have 2 partitions:  on partition C and E. 

I have my windows 7 x64 on C and installed setup 1.3 on it... but my eGpu is not working (error 43 even with DSDT override).

So I decided to install another fresh windows 7 x64  on E. I uninstalled setup 1.3 on C and installed it on E

 

But when I chainload setup 1.3 (tried with all options possible: MBR, MBR2, bootmgr), I get an error if I boot the windows that is on E.

I get "Windows failed to start.....a required device isn't connected or can't be access"

 

any clue?

Pls check if your using got or mbr partitions to host your windows. Setup 1.20 requires mbr partitions. If it is mbr and disk image install is still problematic, then pls use a USB stick installation instead.

Hi Tech Inferno Fan, HDD are MBR (checked with diskpart and list disk, my boot ssd hard drive which has windows on it is MBR), on the other hand I also tried to make a boot usb stick as stated on the instructions: 

 

Quote

Create a USB stick. This must be done if you have GPT partitions (UEFI-boot) but is optional for BIOS-MBR boot instead of the disk image install.

Code:

1. Download and install RMPrepUSB [~6MB]

2. Ensure you've run c:\eGPU\eGPU-Setup-mount.bat so have a V:[DIYEGPUIMG] drive

3. Run RMPrepUSB, set options as shown in red here to copy the disk image onto a bootable USB stic

 

It gets recognised on the startup of mac (get two windows drives) but does not make any difference.

Pls use easybcd to add a second boot item to your primary her that points to the windows on your Usb drive.

 

Then install setup 1.30 on the primary her and use its chainloading mbr to bring up that primary her bootmenu from which you select the usb HDD win installation.

 

Need to do this because the grub bootloader probably does not recognize your Usb drive and so can't boot the setup 1.30 image off it.

Any ideas for the why startup.bat doesn't work correctly?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi there!

 

I’m trying to configure Setup 1.30 as a primary boot option to load EGPU as default. However, if Setup 1.30 is set as primary boot in Windows, the automatic startup using startup.bat just loops without loading Windows.

 

So how can Setup 1.30 be configured to load EGPU to Windows from cold boot, without having to first select Setup 1.30 in Windows boot menu?

 

Thanks for a great programme!

Hi guys! Hope everyone is doing great and hope Tech Inferno Fan is better and doing well in his recuperation!

The problem is when I try to select "setup 1.30 menu-based" option the screen goes completly black. It shows like some words real quick that I can't even have time to read them, and then goes black. (But still have video signal)

I know that setup 1.30 DO work perfectly because I'm able to run it without using my egpu....or when I use my GTX 650Ti Boost on my eGPU. The problem is only when I use my GTX 1070 FE on it, the screen just goes black after I select any of those options that appear in the setup 1.30 menu.

I use the EXP GDC Beast and my laptop is a Toshiba Satellite P75-A7200. 

Please help!!!

Hi there,

 

 I have just purchased the DiY Egpu setup program and I have followed the installation instructions but it doesn't show up in the boot options at the beginning when the system is starting. It automatically starts windows7 without offering me to choose the Egpu program. I have tried it on two separate laptops and I get the same. What am I doing wrong? Could somebody help me out here?

Thanks in advance!

1. Extract archive to c:\eGPU

2. Run a DOS Prompt window (as admin)

3. Type "cd c:\eGPU"

4. Type "setup-disk-image" to run the installer. Note if any significant errors or warnings appear.

5. Reboot and check if the DIY eGPU Setup bootitem appears.

Hello all,

 

I currently have a Asus G551JM with a dGPU 860m; and I also receieved a GTX 970 with a PCI-e GDC Beast v8.

 

Everything is installed: the dGPU is disabled, the eGPU is recognized and drivers are updated. In NVIDIA experience; it also states that i am using the GTX 970.

The preferred graphics processor is set to: High Performance Nvidia processor.

 

However, the laptop still uses the iGPU. I do not have the switch option in the BIOS. I've also tried disabling it in Device Manager but then the laptop runs Basic Display (1FPS in game).

 

I have connected my eGPU to the TV but the TV remains black unlike my laptop screen. However when i enter the BIOS, i can see it on both my laptop screen and the TV. Past the BIOS, i can only see my laptop screen.

 

Can anyone tell me what i can do to fix this? I would like to use the GTX 970.

 

Thank you

Hello,

 

I'm using a Thinkpad T430 2349CTO for my eGPU project. The specs are:

Intel Core i5 (3rd Gen) 3320M / 2.6 GHz

- 8 Gigs RAM (dual channel)

- HD 4000 (no iGpu)

- 1600 x 900 resolution

- 500 GB 7200 rpm harddrive

- Windows 7 64-bit

 

My eGPU setup are as follows:

- PE4C 3.0 (ExpressCard)

- Zotac GTX 560 ti 1 GB Vram

- Corsair CX430 PSU (430 w, 80+ certified, 12v @ 32 A)

 

With this setup, internal display works flawlessly, played Fallout 4, MGS V with it no problem. But when I plugged in external monitor (vga monitor, LED TV), nothing shows up. I have tried different monitor, LED TV and cables, still shows blank. I know these monitor, TVs and cables works well since I've plugged them in to my cable TV set top box and working just fine. Strangely, all external displays tested are detected in Display Properties/nVidia Control panel.

 

Any ideas what happened?

I have a lenovo G780 and I'm trying to hook up a GTX 1070 to it.  (I'm using a PE4C V 3.0) and I'm hot swapping the card in after I boot the computer.  However when I look in device manager and open the 1070, this is it's status.  

"This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system."

I do have a dGPU but disableing it causes my entire computer to crash and forces me to recovery boot.  any help would be awesome.

 

Pls review these threads to solve error 12:
