    It was likely booting to the mDP, I've tested that to work on my M6700 to an extent
    I'll see if I can find a display port screen and try and use my M18X R2 to boot to the mDP port instead of the internal screen

    The only GTX 1080's that could even come close to fitting are simply too tall, and need extra power either from a external plug of demand more from the MXM slot than it can handle (look at the Zotac 1080 in the AW 17 R1 and M17X R4)
