Video Port Priority

Jump to solution

NUC 8i7HVB

Main monitor on HDMI port. Video drawing tablet attached to Thunderbolt port.

On Boot, the Thunderbolt port (tablet) seems to have priority. NUC won't boot until I turn on tablet. I would like to be able to boot to the main monitor (HDMI) without having to turn on the tablet. Is there a built-in boot priority, or can I modify the port boot sequence in Setup or some other way?

Thank you.
Greg

Here is a picture explaining the priority ordering of the graphics ports:

I only found the manual as much as I tried,

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/NUC8i7HVK_TechProdSpec.p... 

It's not like I would like to turn off mine right now. But, it is supposed to be possible. It's somewhere in the bios settings. Either the devices, onboard devices. Or in the Boot settings.

I mean like it is possible. I don't remember where it is. At least read the manual to figure out how to use the bios.

From what I am reading in the manual you may want to disable the eyefinity feature. It may be that it is preventing you from loading from a single display. Eyefinity is a feature that extends your monitor through the software feature. It's supposed to make your monitors direct the screen in all applications. It's only an extension outside of the operating system. It's not like windows already can extend your displays. It's just that setting up video games on dual or triple monitors is a problem. So the eyefinity.

This absolutely nailed it for me! You don't have to answer this follow on, but I'll just pose it rhetorically: Why is it so very hard to find data like this? I have the technical spec and the BIOS description. I think that a "manual" should be available if the NUC's are to be sold to computer literate end users!
