First, no, I'm not using thunderbolt and there is no hardware reason for failure. Pcie is the standard for connecting GPUs.
I'm having trouble with my newly set-up eGPU config.
Using an R34SR ADT-link from m.2
HP pavilion i7-8550u + GTX 970
I have the PSU and everything connected, and I downloaded Nvidia drivers. However, booting does not start the gpu or psu and no fans spin. No detection in Device Manager.
My bios is version F.23. I tried to find graphic or pcie settings, but I didn't see any options... I fear this is the problem...
Please, any advice would help. HP, if your simple answer is "it's not supposed", then mention to your manager users should have the choice and freedom to use their purchased hardware freely.

I can't find the specs of your machine but one of its sisters
You are wasting your time and money to do an undo-able work. You can buy a different machine (as the one above) which has NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 (4 GB GDDR5 dedicated) fixed.
