since 3 weeks I have a strange issue with my HP Thunderbolt Dock (P/N 841830-002) and my Notebook (P/N Z2W63EA#ABD).
The Thunderbolt dock don't get recognised at all (not shown in the device manager). At first I simply had to unplug and replug the dockingstation a few times before the connection works. Now it will only get recognised if I open the BIOS menu before booting (I know it sounds strange...)
Things I have already tried:
- Updating everything in the HP Support assistant
- Reinstall Thunderbolt driver
- Install DCH-Driver from intel
- Disable every energy saving option in BIOS and Windows (also USB-devices in the device manager)
- Using an Other Docking-Station (HP USB-C Dock G5 - P/N 5TW10AA - same error as with the Thunderbolt dock)
Does anybody have any clue what else I can try or how I can fix the problem?

@Christian_M Welcome to HP Community!
I understand that the HP Spectre x360 Thunderbolt Dock not recognized without open BIOS while booting.
In that case, I would suggest you perform the Thunderbolt test and let us know.
1. Power off the PC and make sure that it is completely powered off.
2. Press the power button and the moment you press the power button immediately start tapping F2 key, you should see the system diagnostics screen.
3. Look for the component test, under that all the hardware will be listed, please choose Thunderbolt and initiate the quick test.
Note: If it fails it will generate a 24 digits alphanumeric failure id, please capture that.
Keep us posted,

Thank you very much for your help @Praveen196.
At first there were only RAM and Harddrive test available so I've downloaded and installed the UEFI-Version of hardware diagnostics from https://www8.hp.com/de/de/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/pc-diags.html
Unfortunately the Thunderbolt option is missing for me (see photo below)
