T480 doesn't boot/hangs while dock is attached via USB-C

T480 doesn't boot while dock is attached via USB-C

Both laptop and USB-C dock station has the latest BIOS/Firmware

 

If I boot the laptop without docking attached, laptop boots normally, otherwise is hanging on Lenovo prompt to press key in order to interrupt normal startup, laptop's keyboard seems unrenspossive.

 

Docking works OK after Windows OS start loading

What devices are connected to the dock?  If you unplug everything from dock, is problem gone?

Several (Monitors, Handset, Keyboard/Mouse, Network, etc.), but I identified to be one of the device which is not recognized by Windows, seems when unrecognized device is attached the Laptop simply hangs during BIOS/UEFI preload.

As an workaround I've changed the device to powered USB and seems to bypass this limitation.

I have the same problem. I have many things connect too. Dual monitors, headset, network and wireless keyboard and mouse. When I pull it off the dock it boots normally. Any suggestions?

First see if laptop boots normaly if there is no device connected on dock, then try booting connecting 1 device at a time until you find the culprit one. When you have multiple devices connected allow at least 10sec for preeboot to initialize.

And we're back...
