    Ayyyyy.. the man himself.

    Btw. Were you following similar threads over at TI? And how we got ours to work without the Code 43?

    Nope couldn't even login there, or even browse the site at all since Christmas due to their new anti-add blocker not working with my Internet security (even when white-listed)...so finally gave up on trying to force something that apparently isn't meant to be.

    You are using a TB3 Mod, remember. ;)

    The Code 43 doesn't happen over TB3. I actually tested that using the stock firmware as well. And it was all kosher.
    It happens when adapters are used over m.2 or mPCIe. And the only thing that fixes it is enabling universal PCIe hot plugging or for the respective ports.
    It has something to do with the stuff NVIDIA added to assist hot plugging over TB3.

    For systems with your magic it was ez as pie, some unlocked their manually and things worked. But for systems like Dells with the recent BIOSs having their IFR structures are confusing, people are kinda SOL.

    Did you miss my m.2 tests ? :(

    Probably something switching into lower power states and loosing signal...

    Edit: Sure saw that test thread. ;)

    They forgot to add a disclaimer on my GPU box stating "This version is for hacker use only" I would've looked elsewhere. I just want to play the game man not to crack codes...sigh

    Yeah DIY eGPUs are very platform/laptop dependent.
    Or
    easy as pie if you @Prema 's mods.

    Most.of the problems are on systems without dGPUs or one that have both dGPU and iGPU.

    Thanks to Prema's magic formula I am now able to access hot plug feature. Yet still I'm running into the same issues. There are 4 ports for pcie hot plug I enabled the first two (no idea which one I need). Regardless, I can't seem to install drivers properly. At least I know that 375.63 is correct for my gpu, but it shows code. Even 372.70 now shows code also nvidia control panel missing.
    %NVIDIA_DEV.1C81.6150.3842% = Section***, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1C81&SUBSYS_61503842
    This is my ID I put into sections with different *** numbers and then add card to [strings], maybe I suck at editing I don't know...

    Download the modded drivers from here and install them :

    https://www.techinferno.com/index.p...ort-modded-inf/&do=findComment&comment=155395

    Make sure you follow the instructions to the letter, and Driver Signature Enforcement is turned off. The instructions for that are in the first post of that thread.

    Also just enable Hot Plugging for all of them. Get the eGPU working and then you can work on finding which port is which.
