MSI GX60 / 70 Destroyer Adrenaline GUIDE WIN10

I know this not question but, I've read and read through these forums, spent hours and housr for weeks n weeks so i feel I should put this out there. With a big F U to MSI seriously EFFF FUUU like EFFFFFFFFF UIUIUUUOUKIOY:WREDIOLU"DESL"JI:FCWSA"LJK

Purely done by incident while trying to get my 4k tv to be detected in 4k!!! still won't and now it wont even detect any external; display.

Anywhos 

Start off by hitting regedtit local control stuffies and delete everything in the video section

unlocking your BIOS

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2V3jrIYrqb4 He has the links below video

Following this guy's tutorial, you need to diskpart your usb drive to a bootable drive before using netbootin (google up a guide for that) DO NOT disable integrated GPU there's no option in place to run the discrete as a primary, it's how MSI EFFED everyone with the way they've done crap just to be propriety. If you disabled it, you won't have a screen and you'd be stuck in boot loop with the discrete trying to POST to the APU, yes, they've somehow dedicated the 8970m to be a slave, but that's ok because the 8650g basically clocks itself to match the 8970m's speed therefore crossfire? ish

Once bios is unlocked, on system page, go all the way to bottom, theres an empty arrow, hit it, you'll see a bunch of stuff you can change, mainly gpios etc

Enable ALL MSI options and PCI Bridging mainly, windows DO have support for APU/GPU, it's just been locked out... anyways enable legacy drivers or what ever it was called also

Once you get back into windows, run DDU in safe mode enable all windows updates, it should automatically install 27.10 or something... 

Goto programs and features, add .Netframework 3.5 2.0 etc

Download Direct x support from Microsoft

After that go download your latest driver and youre done. No need for all these stupid manually clickity inf crap, YES IVE DONE IT OVER 10000x 

You can install catalyst 15.7 to control the 8650g if you want to. Adrenaline doesnt have any settings to change your desktop environment and the desktop environment is managed by the 8650g, so yeh, we're stuck with 15.7, but atleast it'll run the 27.10driver or whatever windows installed prior.hhahhaha.PNGkjsdhkfjs.PNG

Re: MSI GX60 / 70 Destroyer Adrenaline GUIDE WIN10

incase anyone is interested.

I installed Kubuntu took about 3 days of testing settings etc to get it to work.

Bios menu to get it to work with linux/ubuntu

Powerexpress = disabled
IGFX = auto
Display brightness control = Driver
_OSC to PCI0 = enabled
Dynamic mode switching = Enabled

Grub settings etc

radeon.si_support =1 radeon.cik_support=1
Link to hw-prob running ubuntu 20.04

https://linux-hardware.org/?probe=0725dd67d5

use

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ernstp/mesarc
sudo apt-get update
Sudo apt upgrade

for drivers and eventually you'll be sent mesa, vulkan etc

Re: MSI GX60 / 70 Destroyer Adrenaline GUIDE WIN10

Quick update with Ubuntu 20.04 kde plasma

bios setting

power express disabled

dynamic mode enabled

igpu forced performance

_osc to pci0 enabled

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/amdgpu.conf 

paste this in

options amdgpu si_support=1

options amdgpu cik_support=1

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/radeon.conf

options radeon si_support=0
options radeon cik_support=0

sudo nano /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
mkinitcpio -P

sudo update-initramfs -u

sudo nano/etc/mkinitcpio.conf 
MODULES=(amdgpu radeon)

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-amdgpu.conf

Section "Device"

Re: MSI GX60 / 70 Destroyer Adrenaline GUIDE WIN10

Could You please make a screenshot or better info where the changes has to be made in bios ?

enabled all ports for sb gpp - 1:1:1:1 mode ?

enabled sb memory reverse  - is it SB GPP Lane Reversal ?

_osc to pci0 ? no idea

How does it work in linux ? no problem with random sh*t ?

Does those settings also apply to win?
