Connecting HP Omen Accelerator (xfx 850) to Thinkpad x280

Hello! I am trying to connect an HP Omen Accelerator to my Thinkpad x280. When i connect it, the light on the enclosure lights up, but it is not recognized by the pc. When i plug it in, nothing happens either in the thunderbolt software or in device manager. 


I've updated the drivers, currently running:

software package version:

controller driver version:

Thunderbolt 3 (15BF) 

Nvm FWV 21.03


I have downloaded the Omen Accelerator program, but it won't recognize it either.

Any tips?
