nathan:Satch:wellygary: What about disabling the LAN/Network device driver, ?
I know its not very useful to run the laptop in that state, but if it boots OK it would tend to point to it being a Network port/driver issue.
Just so I am crystal clear, are you suggesting I disable the LAN/Network device driver in Windows, then rebooting with everything still plugged in (dock and Ethernet cable included) to isolate whether it is an issue at the laptop end or something that my network is throwing at the laptop? If so I'll certainly give it a shot. Cheers.
Since Windows drivers aren't loaded in the UEFI firmware, I doubt this will do anything
Ok good to know, thanks Nathan. I have plenty of other scenarios to try as per my previous post. Will let y'all know if successful or not after I get a chance to play around with my set up.
