    It was worth a shot, I was expecting that it was interface agnostic, seems like it isn't.
    mPCIe is the interface used by WiFi cards usually, and its one of the most common eGPU interfaces.

    Not sure it is due to interface, as mxm is still pci-e. I've replied to the scripts forum thread, hopefully the owner can fix the script to detect correct error code. Mind u, the card is detected as Nvidia, the error code is not. Because if u run the script without the nvidia, it says there is no nvidia gpu. In my particular case, I think the issue is firmware/bios and not OS specific. Ive had same issue with a m2200 some time ago and only vbios flash fixed the error 43 code.

    Isn't it because mPCI e is connected to the PCH instead of being connected to the CPU?
    Driver won't know how to deal with this config as it knows only about normal PCI e which works with CPU directly.

    However, older architectures like sandy-ivy bridge and haswell worked with external cards from desktop class.

    I am curious about this. I have joined a group chat in China, dozens of people tried this card but no one successfully lit up. Could you give more details?
