    I want even less than 50$ if it is possible

    I just got it working!

    I pulled one of my two 2GB memory sticks, turned everything back on and it works. (I suppose I somewhat owe nando a thank you for recommending pci compaction which got me thinking about memory.)

    Sadly this means I'm now running single channel with 666MHz ram
    EDIT: 800MHz, I was misreading the sticker on the ram. CPUZ confirms 800Mhz.

    So some questions:
    - should I be able to add a 1GB stick of ram and still have this work? (system memory would be 3GB which honestly is enough for me currently)
    - how do I get rid of the "eGPU setup" boot option, since I don't need or benefit from it?
    Are you sure you already try all combinations of PCI compaction? What is the TOLUD register set to (you should see it at the upper-right corner of the Setup 1.x screen)?

    You can removed the "eGPU setup" boot option by following the instruction in Setup 1.x post.

    I recommend getting Corsair CX500 V2 instead. Single 12V rail with 12V/34A (408W). Probably cost around USD 60.

    This is what I was doing:

    (iGPU + eGPU)

    I'll put the RAM back in and check.

    tolud@3.00GB

    Tried compacting all pci devices: system froze
    Tried compacting just egpu: code 43 after chainloading windows
    Tried compacting just igpu: code 43 after chainloading windows
    (Had previously tried egpu + igpu: code 43)

    I'm not adverse to spending $15 on a 1GB stick of ram if you think it would work.

    With TOLUD 3GB, you should be able to use 4GB+ RAM. In your post, you did mentioned "hook everything up". Did you tried boot without eGPU connected & hotplugging the eGPU in windows?

    Just tried it now, screen went black for a second, then came back: code 43.

    I have previously tried plugging it in with machine asleep, code 43 when I wake it up.

    EDIT: I'm thinking my iGPU is causing the trouble. I believe it can use up to 1GB of system memory. I haven't seen anywhere where I can manually set this though (to say 256MB which is still more than it has processing power to properly utilize). [EDIT #2: I've checked the BIOS - no option.]

    There is the Video cards->Initialize and Video cards->Save/Load dump features to eradicate error43. Ensure you are running the latest 275.33 Verde drivers + modded nvam.inf and the PCI reset delay slider on the PE4L 1.5/PE4H 2.4 is set to the 0 seconds position (not 7 or 15 seconds). Then proceed as follows:

    1. Boot eGPU Setup 1.x with 2GB installed, run Setup 1.x, select to Video Cards->Save. If you are hotplugging after bios boot then need to select Video Cards->Save(Win) and follow instructions generated from within Windows.

    2. Install 4GB of RAM. Boot Windows. Create a devcon with 4GB of system RAM installed:
    Code:
    \eGPU\eGPU-setup-mount
    v:\devcon\mkdevcon
    3. Boot eGPU Setup 1.x,
    - select Video cards->Load to load the PCI space dump created when it was working with no error 43.
    - perform 32-bit PCI compaction on the iGPU+eGPU.
    - select startup.bat->edit, remove the 'call vidinit' since it might interfere with your load dump.
    - select Apply config.Run startup.bat
    - select Chainload mbr

    If still get an error 43, then repeat steps in (3) above but use 32-bitA PCI compaction method instead.

    It worked!

    Do I have to do all these menu selections each time? (I'm guessing I don't need to edit startup.bat each time but what about all the other stuff?) Is there some way to do all this on boot with zero human input?

    I take it this makes it so I can't hotplug my eGPU? I need to reboot windows when I connect it? (Not really a problem, my hybrid SSD makes reboots pretty fast.)

    EDIT:
    Never mind, I don't need to do ANY of this on reboot AND I can hot plug my eGPU. +1 Nando!
