So, brand new WD15 connected via USB-C to an Inspirion 7000 7278 laptop under Linux. No complaints with the display, ethernet or USB-ness. I did notice, however, that there is a newer firmware available. No biggie, I boot into windows and attempt to flash the update. And then I get the 'no thunderbolt dock found cannot flash...'
So, just how are we supposed to flash firmware on the dock if we don't have a thunderbolt connection?
Whoops, it wasn't a 'no thunderbolt dock found...' error, but simply a '...no dock found error...'. So, are we unable to flash the firmware update from an Inspirion laptop?
