Back in March i bought the HP headset and tried to hook it up to my Surfacebook 2 15inch. Max specs.

I could not get the mixed reality portal to work. The headset was not detected and bottom line i did my research and it looks like the USBC port to video driver was not working right.
Before i go try again, HAS anyone gotten windows mixed reality or holo lens to work with surfacebook 2 and if so what did you do to get it to work.

 

thanks

FYI for those that are curious. I got it to work.

Because i am running Windows 10 enterprise, i had to use the technique explained here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/application-management/manage-windows-mixed-reality

 

basically needed to download the package locally

But i can officially say mixed reality works great with Surfacebook 2.

Other thing I found is the Microsoft USB C to HDMI adaptor was essential. Another generic one I had could not handle the framerate
