@redlake 

 

The specs of your machine is

 

          https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c05573715

 

It ONLY has

 

  • 1 USB 3.1 Type-C™ Gen 1 (Data up to 5 Gb/s);
  • 3 USB 3.1 Gen 1 (1 HP Sleep and Charge);
  • 1 HDMI;
  • 1 RJ-45;
  • 1 headphone/microphone combo

From my view, that USB-C port is hopeless, it is similar to a normal USB 3.1 port with a different shape. Therefore no available port on your machine which is fast enough for an eGPU.

 

You need a machine which has a Thunderbolt3 port.

 

Regards.
