I got bad luck, my y510p model 20217 does not have a NGFF/mSata, I just got 1 single SATA port. =/

Just to make sure you understand what I said, I was thinking if it was possible to have the 2nd drive inside the ultrabay slot, and your eGPU Ultrabay adaptor to be connected on the outside, Like this example (just to illustrate), where the mPCI is outside:

This way I would kill 3 rabbits with just one shot (2nd internal SSD, eGPU support and a Plug-in adapter)

Thank you mister!

Ah that's relatively easy. you just buy that odd to 2.5' bay. you could align the cables to it and make a cutout on the bay to let the cables run outside the laptop. I have tried it before that's ok

Nice, a internal SATA/Ultrabay combo adapter, and a external eGPU.

Or, another solution would be cut the adapter cable halfway and put 2x connectors (D-SUB?) would also work to achieve mobility.

Just illustrating, something like this, with the internal adapter and the external eGPU being interconected by a single plug-in cable.

But maybe a D-SUB wont be able to handle the 8x PCIe... Displayport maybe?

Yes I did thought of it but I don't have the ability to produce a port for that so ... :-(

I just got one end of the cable lengthed by an pcb is for the convenience of attaching and detaching

I did have thought of HDMI/DP or others. They are not qualified for this job. They will cause the display driver stop running or just not showing up the egpu(maybe electrical interference or something) They just don't work well. I even thought of placing a vertical PCI-E x16 slot and get a extension cable for it. It just not being elegant. :(

I even thought of SFF cables. They will just bring the price of it out of control...

OK here's what's next.

I'll design a arclic bay which is sized as the odd. and a handle on the box will be added. So that you could attach/detach it as a original ultrabay module and will be easy to carry it away. Stay tuned for that. :)

but don't know about the strength of arclic. just a idea though.

My thought is the same as you. But how to do about the EXPOSED CONNECTOR? How about the signal integrity? What's the connector should be used? PCIE is specially designed. That's why I designed them as directly soldered to the board... I DID experienced signal degradation when using these random connectors. They just don't work well.

The pics are the cables I used. They are really not cheap.

These are 30 AWG right? IIRC, Network cables (like Cat5e RJ45) are 30 AWG, the shielding may vary.

Depending on how many wires are really needed to make it work, some standard cables might do it.

I found this looking for many-pin cables. They are Dell PowerEDGE server cables.

Hell no! It would be very expensive and unnecessary, just one single male adapter is required to send the data to the laptop, the rest can be made with other connectors.

This is a very expensive 3M PCI-Express Extender, and they use 30 AWG .025" cables.
https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/8KC3-0726-0500/3M12026-ND/3641403


These wires are 24 AWG, and are cheap.

I was also thinking about making things simpler, since the cable is expensive and the connectors are not trusty. Have 2 PCBs, one on top of the other (almost like you already did).

2 PCBs, one for the Ultrabay adapter, and one for the Sata HDD. This way it would be possible to plug-in or plug-out the Adapter (black board on image) without plugin-out the HDD (green board on image).

OR this black PCB can be just your adapter with a handle that make it easier to pull it and push (without messing with the SATA HDD)

Probably. As soon as it is PCI-Express, I think it will be ok                        (but I might be wrong)

The problem is you can't use a telephone line to passsthough pcie signal... I said these PCIE ones are specially designed...

That's why I got them soldered the cable directly on pcb and they are expensive. I can't just pick a bunch of random copper cable and frankenstein it and call it a day...

Using pcie extenders can extend them like 2 meters or even 10 meters,but they are specially designed for pcie. Using Non-PCIe cables can cause stability issues.

 

The female connector i mentioned above. But actually I'm not willing to design a new adapter above it... So... it's your turn, guys.

If you use a set of females and males Ultrabay adapters, you will still need a good cable between them.

It looks like your adapter is still the best way to do it, even though the cable is expensive.

Looks like the cable is the problem.

Guys I wanted to thank you all for the work you put in the adaptor- it works like a charm with my y510p- I got the internal screen working with the modded BIOS, version 3 of the adaptor and a wonderful GTX980 :-)

 

Thank you!

 

A last question remains for me: Do you have any clue if i can use a pci express extender cable to put the hot gtx a few inches away from the laptop? I tried it once with a cheap cable from thermaltec, but that didn't work out. Do you guys have any experience with these extenders? Or is geralds adaptor wired in sone way that an extender wouldn't work in the first place?

      Hi all! I am wondering if it's possible to remove the bios whitelist easily. Because of the whitelist, my external gpu setup that I got recently refuses to work. If it helps at all, I know that the wifi card that used to be in the slot was the intel 8265ngw. Here's the bios link if that helps too: laptops and netbooks :: thinkpad x series laptops :: thinkpad x380 yoga :: 20lj :: 20ljs20n00 :: mp1e15eb - Lenovo Support US
      Thanks for your help!

      We've had a stack of recurring questions from with problems getting a mPCIe eGPU working. This includes GPU-Z not reporting no clock details, error 10/43 or even not being detected at all. Overall it's more troublesome getting mPCIe working than say expresscard or Thunderbolt.
       
      Here's some common problems and some troubleshooting steps to correct them.
       
      Getting a black bootup screen, resolving error 10/43 or ACPI_BIOS_ERROR win bootup messages
       
      Here the BIOS doesn't know what to do when it sees an eGPU. So the solution is to not let the BIOS see it. Do that by setting the delays on the eGPU adapter (CTD/PTD - EXP GDC or CLKRUN/PERST# on PE4L/PE4C). Boot with eGPU adapter in the wifi slot into Setup 1.30 or Windows. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      I'll add that should error 43 continue AND you have a NVidia dGPU as well as NVidia eGPU then it's likely because of having the mobile NVidia and desktop NVidia drivers loaded simultaneously. Proceed to uninstall ALL your NVidia drivers, use "DDU" to clean NVidia registry entries and do a 'clean' install of the latest NVidia desktop driver.
       
      mPCIe port that hosted the wifi card disappears when connecting an eGPU in it's place
       
      Use the Setup1.30 PCIe Ports->enable to enable the missing port.
       
      eGPU does not get detected
       
      Overcome mPCIe whitelisting by booting with the wifi card and then hotswapping in the eGPU. That way the BIOS will enable the mPCIe port to work.
       
      1. Boot with wifi card into Windows, sleep system, swap wifi card for mPCIe eGPU adapter and ensure eGPU is powered on, resume system. Do a device manager scan in Windows. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      2. Boot with wifi card into Setup 1.30 *carefully* hotplug the eGPU adapter in place of wifi card. Hit F5 to rescan the PCIe bus. Is the eGPU detected?
       
      If this enables detection then avoid this tedious hotswapping by seeking a unwhitelisted modified BIOS for your system OR test the Setup 1.30's PCI ports->undo_whitesting feature.
       
      eGPU still not detected - set the PSU to be permanently on
       
      The latest EXP GDC and BPlus eGPU adapters try to manage the PSU to only power on after they detect a signal. This can cause a race condition where the eGPU isn't ready to go when the CLKRUN signal is asserted.
       
      Avoid this by jumpering the PSU so it's permanently on rather than being managed. Depending on the PSU you are using refer to the following doco on how to do that:
       
      http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/8441-%5Bguide%5D-switching-atx-psu-using-paperclip-trick-swex.html
      http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/9426-220w-dell-da-2-ac-adapter-discussion.html
       
      eGPU still not detected - a non-standard mPCIe implementation by your vendor?
       
      PERST# mPCIe pin 22 may need to be isolated due to a non-standard implementation by your notebook vendor: http://forum.techinferno.com/enclosures-adapters/10812-pe4x-series-understanding-clkreq-perst-delay.html#post142689
       
      eGPU still not detected - faulty hardware?
       
      If you still don't get detection then test the video card and eGPU adapter in another machine to confirm neither is faulty.
       
      NVidia driver stops responding
       
      EXP GDC, PE4H 2.4 and PE4L 1.5 all use a socketted cable and therefore are not true Gen2 compatible device. This error indicates there was transmissions errors.
       
      The solution is either to get a better Gen2-compliant eGPU adapter such as PE4C V3.0 or PE4L 2.1b (both with soldered cable), or downgrade your link from Gen2 to Gen1 using BIOS options or Setup 1.30

      Required items:
      1.) Lenovo u310 (I have a Core i3 - Ivy Bridge, 8GB RAM)
      2.) 65CN99WW unwhitelisted.
      3.) eGPU (I used a EVGA GTX 750 Ti from another computer I had).
      4.) EXP GDC mPCIe Edition adapter (got from eBay - banggood seller).
      5.) ATX power supply (I used a 600W PSU from another computer I had).
      6.) USB wireless.
      7.) External monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
       
      Steps:
      1.) Obtain and install a unwhitelisted BIOS. If you are unable to obtain a unwhitelist BIOS, I think it might be possible to bypass it with Tech Inferno Fan's Setup 1.x (may need confirmation as I haven't used it myself yet.)
      2.) Shutdown computer and remove all USB devices, ethernet cables, power cables, card reader cards.
      3.) Remove mPCIe wireless card and detach antennas.
       
       
      4.) Attach EXP GDC external mPCIe cable to the former wireless slot and screw down.
       
       
      5.) Attach HDMI end of the mPCIe cable adapter to the EXP GDC device.
       
       
      6.) Attach graphics card to the EXP GDC device (I moved my laptop off the desk and onto the side shelf to make room on the desk for the monitor/keyboard/mouse).
       
       
      7.) Using the power cable adapters that came with the EXP GDC device, I hooked in my ATX power supply's 20 pin and CPU 4 pin cables. Then hooked the other end (8 pin) into the EXP GDC device. My EVGA 750 Ti also required that I use an additional PCIe power cable (6 pin) in the top of the card.
       
       
       
       
       
      8.) Then I attached my misc devices (HDMI monitor, USB keyboard/mouse/wireless adapter), and hooked in my PSU and powered it on (below is image of final product, also moved HDMI cable out of the way).
       

       
      9.) Power on your computer and let it install the standard VGA drivers and then install your drivers (I didn't have to go in the BIOS for any graphics settings, which it doesn't have anyways, nor did I have to disable iGPU in Device Manager before the card was added).
       
      Extra Info:
      I found that most games will play on med settings with about 45 FPS with this particular card.
      BDO: Upscale on - Anti Aliasing on - SSAO off - med settings.
      Skyrim: Med-High settings.
      Fallout 4: Med settings.
