    Hi Mrmegtette,

     

    Can you please help me get the modded BIOS. Let me know if you need any details about my laptop spec. Thanks a lot for your suggestions.

     

     

    As far as my understanding, you are using a different BIOS. That's an RSA signed bios. You won't have any luck modding those. 

    You will need to make your own thread at the Provisional Guides section and ask for help there. Unfortunately I don't know much about hot-plug installation.

     

    Cheers,

    Thanks a lot for your reply mrmegtette. Can the issue be because my BIOS is F1.C ? or because i haven't used 1.3 setup?

     

     

     

    I haven't had BSOD with the official F1.B however, I was on this FW already. It basically costs nothing to flash the modded bios. Maybe you will run into problems using the default BIOS and without setup 1.x because the mPCIe port for WIFI module is whitelisted as far as I know. 

     

    Above ShOOm set the link to gen1 and had no BSOD after.

     

    If you want I can upload the modded BIOS in the morning after I'm arrive home. I try to find it now but no "official" source so I just don't want to share something I never tried.

    Hi Shoom,

     

    I saw the same BSOD issue when i tried using Beast with HP DV7 laptop but wasn't able to solve it after multiple tries. Can you please let me know how you resolved the BSOD issue? Thanks in advance.

    How did you manage to solve the BSOD issue?

    Try to set gen1 in your startup.bat

    call iport gen1 2

     

    On the other hand, should I ask you guys, kindly to do not quote all the pictures, or if you put pictures put them in a spoiler, cheers.


  4. -What egpu u have?
    Your system looks similar as mine.
    -First start DDU in safe mode and remove ALL drivers.
    -Reboot to setup 1x
    -Do ignore dgpu and run compation egpu+igp
    -Disable dgpu and add it with F3 to startup
    -Test run

    -Install drivers for your egpu, restart
    -Run egpu with startup.but
    -It should work

    Hello!

    I have the same notebook. I have a problem with blue screen after installing eGPU. Tell me please where did you get BIOS modification for it?

     

    Bios MOD because of the WiFi card whitelist. I hoped it will be plug and play. But after I had to use Setup1.3 anyway. If I don't use Setup1.3 my laptop also does BSOD during boot.

     

    Bios mod:

    If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.

    Sure thing. I doubt its going to be stable with just a driver change. If you cannot buy a PE4C, make sure you use DDU to remove the 364 driver. I personally just allowed Windows find the best driver through windows update and it has been a charm. With my L440, even Gen 1 wasnt stable with the EXP Beast. It was so unstable that it would crash with a Kernel error and even though i take the eGPU apart, it wouldnot work except i wait for about 30mins for it to 'cool down'. With the EXP longest i played The Division was 48mins (Hadnt got Rocket League to test). I even tested continuous load on the card using MSI Afterburner to enable the fans and increase power and stuff to no avail too. The PE4C is very straight forward and i can actually plug and play the graphics with driver 358. When connected there is a safely remove icon beside the clock. I think i need to remove the HDMI cable to get the video to go back to my laptop prior to safely removing tho but its fine. With my previous X230 i had to shut down the whole computer prior to ejecting the video card.

     

    Unfortunately no luck for me. Tested with 358.91, 361.91, 362.00 


  7. Hello!

     

    So first of all I already had a working setup with a GTX680 see below.

     

    But I had an oppurtunity to sell the 680 and buy a 970. Unfortunately the 970 doesn't working in gen2 just  in gen1 mode. The nvidia driver stops responding in 1-2 minutes even in idle mode in gen2 mode. Thought it is caused by the PSU so I tested with different ones. (I tried it with the dell PSU, a 550W Superflower and a 500W Corsair PSU, same situation with all.)

     

    So because it worked flawlessly in gen2 mode with the 680 but with the 970 I believe it isn't a faulty adapter. What shoud I do? Is it any tweak you recommend to try? I'm kinda lost.  

     

     

     


  8. Thank for your reply. Looks no throttling. Tried to OC GPU but looks like does not really has OC potential.

     

    Anyway I had an oppurtunity to sell the 680 and buy a 970. Unfortunately the 970 doesn't working in gen2 just  in gen1 mode. The nvidia driver stops responding in 1-2 minutes even in idle mode. Tested with a 550 ATX PSU but pluged just to the GPU, because I don't have that ATX TO EXP GDC cable, and the Dell PSU pluged in the Beast. Same situation.

     

    However my result promising, it is stable and have about 20% improved performance than with the 680.

     

    Heaven score 3050

    3DMark06 18875 (will provide link later)

    3DMark11 10293

     

    I'm going to try with an other PSU but I need a switching schematics of that ATX TO EXP GDC cable. I know there is around somewhere but can't find. Anyone has it and willing to pass? Thanks

    So here you have my egpu project.

     

    Notebook

     

    HP Pavilion DV7 6103EG

    Bios: HP Insyde F.1B moded by donovan6000
    CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM

    IGP: HD3000

    DGP: ATI 6770M

    RAM: 8GB

    Storage: ADATA SSD S599 64GB

    OS: 64-bit Windows 10

     

    eGPU gear


    EXP GDC Beast

    DEll DA-2 220W

    Palit GTX680 4GB - PCI-E 2 x16 @ x1 2.0 

    DIY Setup 1.3

     

    Results

     

    3dmark06=18319

    3dmark11.GPU=8222

    Heaven 2454
    Firestrike 5357

     

    Sorry, in the title I'm not sure about mpcie 1 or 2 and bandwidth. 

     

    Unfortunately it isn't worked plug and play, however worked flawlessly without change anything or using Setup 1.3 about 3 times in gen2 mode. :D 

     

    Finally I went for Setup 1.3 and made recommended PCI Compation and chainload still worked just random few times even to set gen1 and disabled dGPU.

     

    Then tried to use command to reset and init iport in Setup 1.3 and looks like it solved my problem. I'm not sure I need every command. It is just my common sense.

    Still it is working like a charm at the moment without any problem. 

     

    My final and working Startup.bat

     

    call iport dGPU off
    call iport gen2 2
    call vidwait 60
    call vidinit -d %eGPU%
    call iport reset 2
    call iport init 2
    call pci
    :end
    call chainload mbr

     

    Just wondering are my results nice, and I can leave it like this, or go ahead and do some more modifications. Like tweak more in 1.3, change the PSU. Or if this is the max I can get with the 680 does it worth it to get a stronger VGA, or no point because of the limits of my chipset and CPU.

     

    My Windows Power Plan is set to High Performance. 

     

    Thanks for reading.
