Boot to external display with T470 with USB 3 Pro dock?

I have a Thinkpad T470 and a Thinkpad USB 3.0 Pro dock. I have Win 7 on it with Bitlocker enabled. What I would like to do is setup the laptop to boot to one of the external displays so I get the bitlocker screen on my main monitors. I went into the bios and it seems to have an option to do that but that doesn't seem to work.


Is there something I can do to make that work?

Hello Pazzi! Welcome to Community Forums.


This may not be possible as the USB dock driver will only kick in if the machine is booted to Windows. You may check the discussion in this Microsoft article
