    I have TP Pro.
    I have tried unit on 2 laptops and a desktop.
    Cannot see BIOS (during reboot). Post BIOS, I can seen normal Windows bootup.

    1. Thanks for reporting this!

      Some laptops refuse to display to an external monitor during boot. Do you have an external monitor available to test? If the laptops can't display to the external monitor, the TinyPilot won't be able to capture their display either. Often, there are BIOS settings you can adjust to control display behavior during boot, but it varies by manufacturer.

      It's unusual for a TinyPilot not to see a desktop's display during boot. What kind of desktop is it?
