Running in BootCamp, but works flawlessly … even better than the HTC Vive setup I was using before.  Also, can access Mac files while in the Windows Mixed Reality VR world … ie listen to iTunes, use Plex, etc 😉

Also, SteamVR for Windows Mixed Reality will be released Nov 15 giving me access to all of my old games …

Hi, on my mixed reality portal, the graphics card is always detected as Microsoft Basic Renderer display? I bought the HP Mixed reality headset for use with my 2017 iMac. Wondering how did you manage to get RX 580 showing there and are you on Windows 1803 with this setup now? Thanks

I have yet to list my system & eGPU hardware or link a build guide in my signature. I will do so soon to give context to my posts.

I managed to get this setup working. I had to install mixed reality portal on windows 1703 on my main hdd so that i could apply 1803 update once the mixed reality portal was fully installed. This way i could launch straight into mixed reality portal on 1803 without any pc checks being done. I have had this workaround done for a couple of months. Having hp mixed reality vr running on a 2017 iMac with razer core x rx 480 egpu combo is simply incredible.
