DE3815TYBE with external GPU?

Jump to solution

I am experimenting with a DE3815TYBE mainboard and trying to use an MSI RX 570 GPU with it. I have 2GB of DDR installed and a 500GB SATA drive connected. I have put the latest BIOS 62 on there.

I have a mini PCe -> PCIe 1x adapter, connected to a 16x riser card to plug the GPU in. When I connect it all up, the system will not boot and I get 2 or 3 flashes on the amber LED.

All adapters and risers were tested separately with a PCIe 1x network card. The system boots fine with the network card and is visible when doing 'lspci' from Ubuntu.

Seems like a BIOS thing....how can I debug this?

 

Thanks.

Bryan,

The mini-PCIe connector on the DE3815TYBE NUC board is provided for the addition of a wireless capability. I do not believe that the BIOS has support for a bus mastering device being plugged into this connector and I do not believe that the BIOS has support for utilizing the Video ROM provided by the board that you have plugged in to the remote PCIe connector.

Sorry,

Is 2 flashes on the amber LED, so Video BIOS issue.

I will look for serial port to maybe get info?

Thanks! I am suspecting the same thing. Debating trying a different board or building a coreboot BIOS for this one, if possible...getting more over my head at this point, haha
