Hey Everyone.
I know there is a thread on here explaining what I am chasing but I searched and got well and truly lost in all the threads.
Basically I would like to use my Auros RX580 EGPU with my 2012 I7 Mac Mini in Bootcamp.

I have bootcamp installed but I don't see any Thunderbolt controllers or devices in Device Manager.  

Do I need to look into the efi options or something else. 

Sorry for being a newb but spent ages looking and just got lost.

I greatly appreciate all input into my issue.

Hey mate 

Firstly make sure you're running a UEFI installation of windows as Legacy will not work. Then you need to boot from the apple_set_efi, i.e an EFI boot, see guides on how to do that if you don't know.  For best results I found running integrated.bat before booting from the EFI as usual on TB3 macs helped to get it recognised.
