The factory PCB must be remove, otherwise it won't work.

Nice work! unfortunately gen1 may be stuttering. 😥 Try  to use better and shorter cables.

Nothing is guaranteed. But if your eGPU system is working, then an RTX 2060 works just like any PCI-e card.
Another issue is efficiency.

You need to check in the BIOS whether your laptop is in Legacy or UEFI mode.
If you are in Legacy mode, you will most likely have to use nando4's program. (Or you can reinstall Windows in UEFI mode.)
If your laptop is in UEFI mode, it may be a bit easier.
HP 8470p does not boot with connected eGPU.
In UEFI mode, try the following:
1. Turn on the VGA's power supply.
2. Turn on your laptop and press esc to enter the bios menu.
3. Join the eGPU and go on.
If you are lucky, error12 is waiting for you in the device manager.

I saw the 54mm Expresscard adapter PCB, and wondered when and if it will be ever released.
Just wondering before taking my project any further. Thanks for the previous reply btw.

Here is the public project: https://easyeda.com/diyman/expresscard-to-usb-3-0-miner-riser-egpu-adapter-public

And I attached the gerber files in .zip file too.

At jlcpcb.com/quote you can upload the gerber zip and order it.
Set the PCB Thickness to 0.8mm, and the PCB Qty to 5.

Instruction images:

Connect the pins

Tape down the WAKE# pin on the VGA

I have 9 of them left, I can send you some (I'm from Czech Republic). 😉

Hi @jero! Do you still have some of them in CZ? (I tried to send you a PM, but forum rejected it: You are not allowed to write a message yet.)

Hi @diyman! Could you please explain why is WAKE# pin on VGA card needed to be taped down? Also have you tested USB 2.0 socket on your PCB? According to EC port pinout, it is only USB 2.0 (and not 3.0) right?

@diyman Also what is the problem with pin which you highlighted on the last instruction image?
