    Hello all.
    Had my panda alpha for a few days and wow this thing is amazing.
    So my problem is a simple one, to describe but it has me stumped. i am running an external gpu through the m.2 slot via a pcie adapter and it workes great with my nvidia 1660 card and boots as expected, however if i install an amd radeon 6700xt it hangs at the panda logo screen and wont boot past that. No windows ring of dots nothing, I have tried booting with usb and still no good. But swap back to the 1660 and it works. Please help me panda peeps i NEED my home brew game console. TIA

    Hi, please use the proper forum to ask LP Alpha/Delta related questions...

    Your issue is hard to troubleshoot without knowing the details (what type of power arrangment you used, what type of M.2 to PCIe adapter, etc.)
    A common mistake is not to have the power supply to the external GPU board done correctly.
