Have you ever tried to run it on other similar laptops except R2 and A18..?

Alienware M18xR2

Alienware 17 R1

Alienware 18 R1

 

My friend has my old Clevo P870DM, I will see if we can test it in there

What systems does this card work on? And not meaning civilian Dell with BGA cards.

Did you compare the vBios from the manufacturer (adlink) to the downloadable vBios they provide? As to the Dell and HP vBios. Just   a difference from the military/medical versus civilian setups. And the difference of rtx 3000 vBios.

 

It's an embedded card made to work on those super small embedded computers these companies sell. They all worked (up until RTX 3000) in our laptops. 

 

The only difference is, RTX 3000 has eDP support and all older cards. 

A4500 is the first to remove eDP support. 

 

So this may be why.

Was there an attempt made on Linux? 

Not yet. Still have this to try and also have this to try: https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/fix-dsdt-override-to-correct-error-12/#step1 

 

I put RTX 3000 back for now, but as ideas come back I'll try more. Also contacted Aetina to see if I can send it back for a refund or swap it with a RTX 5000 since my heatsink is already made at this point.

Does anyone know how to edit pci device id in bios? Would be worth a shot to see if I can change pci id in bios so that it doesn't need inf mod and see if that works

I have just read from top to bottom and was hoping to read at the bottom of the thread you had it working....
 

Is it a dead end for sure now ?

Yep, unfortunately. I have returned it and will be going bga as I have no other choice for now. If someone else figures it out or some other mxm variant comes along things may change but for now, RTX 5000 is the best that works in laptops.
