Question

I have a problem connecting an PCIe card to the expresscard slot on the X230. The PCI bus starts at DFA00000 and this simply does not leave enough aressing space for a device that require 256MB of adressing space.

 

This issue was fixed in the X220 in a BIOS update

<1.24-1.13> UEFI: 1.24 / ECP: 1.13 - (New) Improved memory resource allocation process to reserve more memory space         for optional hardware devices.

 

Is it possible to implement this fix is the X230 as well.

I appear to be experiencing the same issue with T530. Is there a BIOS update available for it? If not, when can one be made available? Also what are the steps for enabling the new eGPU driver? Do other video drivers need to be disabled? What happens if I disconnect the ExpressCard and try to use the laptop screen again? Will this be automatically  detected and switched?
