eGPU setup not detected. mPCIe

 I can not find out how to get device manager to detect my eGPU. I've tried many different things but all have failed. I'm going to provide some information about the situation and maybe someone will know what the problem is.

 
My eGPU Specs: V8.0 EXP GDC (mPCIe version), GTX 1050ti, 430w PSU.
"Notebook" Specs: My "notebook" is a Dell Optiplex 9020 All In One (AIO), Intel Core i5-4570S with Intel HD Graphics, and Windows 10.
 
No matter what sequence involving turning on the eGPU, hotswitching the eGPU, and turning on my "notebook", I never see anything other than Intel HD Graphics under Display Adapters in the device manager even with "Hidden Devices" on. Usually, a WLAN card is plugged into the mPCIe slot. And I'm wondering if the eGPU could be being recognized as a different kind of device. In device manager, there is a hidden device called Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller under IDE ATA/ATAP controllers. A Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller works similarly to an EXP GDC. The first time this device experienced an event (which was its install) was a few weeks ago on a weekend that I would've been working on my eGPU. This Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller is always hidden, with the eGPU in or out.
 
While the eGPU is plugged in, in device manager, when I scan for any hardware changes in the PCI Express Root Port #1 (The port in device manager that holds the WLAN Card) a window pops up that says "Scanning Plug and Play compliant Hardware..." but it never finishes scanning.
 
I've heard of error 12, but my eGPU isn't even detected. Should I attempt to override error 12 even if my eGPU isn't detected?
 
Sometimes when I try to shutdown my "notebook" after I had performed a hotswitch, the screen is black like the "notebook" is about to turn off but the "notebook" stays on.
 
I really have no idea what to do. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate it. I would rather attempt to fix this problem without Setup 1.35 if I can.
 
Sincerely, Fishfast

Also, I do not have my GTX 1050ti connected to an external monitor, I'd rather use the internal monitor since my "notebook" isn't a small notebook. It's an AIO.

I have the same config as you (9020 AIO).  Did you find a fix for this?

Hi, try reading my post here [Acer Aspire 4755G 1050Ti Windows 7-64Bit]

Although I've use the Setup 1.35, you might get an idea how I was able to detect my egpu.

You will be able to see Error code 12 if the egpu adapter is already in the device manager. The adapter will have a yellow warning icon.

code 12

Solved Error Code 12 by using Setup 1.35 by loading a DSDT override. After that dillema, I got stuck with Error Code 43.

error 43

Error Code 43 appears when windows stopped it or the driver for that adapter was not loaded. I was able to solve it by using DDU, and then installing the egpu drivers by manually selecting the drivers, "have disk". Driver version 375.70

Oh boy...that's a lot to take in.  Since this is an all-in-one and not a laptop, it's a bit of work to unmount it, disassemble, remove the MPCIE etc etc...you basically have to take the entire computer apart.

Hi, I'm using an akitio node (tb3 egpu) with my Mac mini (2014) and an Asus ROG Strix GTX 1050 ti. I'm using an apple thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt adaptor and a standard thunderbolt cable to connect the egpu enclosure to my mac. I'm new to this and have checked this forum many times to find a fix for a similar issue. Whenever I boot into windows 10 or Mac os high sierra, my egpu is not detected. When I look for thunderbolt connections in the system report screen is osx, nothing appears. The same applies to windows 10. Due to this, I cannot get my egpu rig to work.
