- Windows 11 Pro (Version 10.0.22621 Build 22621).
- Laptop 13 DIY (i5-1340P / Intel 2TB NVMe / Crucial 16GB RAM).
- Dell GTX 1080 + Fractal Design Ion 500G in an external Thunderbolt 4 dock.
Hey. Got this laptop for University, and don’t have the money to use both this and a dedicated desktop. Got a thunderbolt 4 dock to use my old GPU for gaming, video creation, and Blender renders.
Bitlocker recognizes the GPU being plugged/unplugged as a hardware change, locking the system upon reboot. For now I just have bitlocker disabled, which solves this problem.
The second symptom of the eGPU are that my login pin + Windows Hello fingerprints will be deleted. I enter like normal but then Windows says my login doesn’t work and needs to be reset. It prompts me to signin to Microsoft and then goes from there.
This problem can be avoided by directly signing in with my Microsoft account password upon boot, however I still can’t use the fingerprint reader I paid for.
