2020 MacBook Pro 13" Ice Lake CPU Boot Camp eGPU Setup/Troubleshooting
@andygev35, I will try that now.
Incidentally, the Apple Boot Camp installer keeps hanging on ‘Keyboard’. I have to hard power down, reboot and then manually restart the installer from OSCRESERVED D: (which then completes successfully). I don’t think this is the cause of the problem but it’s interesting that it crashes.

I’ve had that happen several times myself.
@andygev35, Hi I had a problem again but realised that I was using the wrong Windows version 🙁 . Downloading the right one now.
However, I wanted to check. I installed without enabling wifi until the AMD Adrenaline installer required it. At that point, Windows seemed to install some updates to because the eGPU was plugged in, is this correct or should I somehow have blocked it updating drivers itself, I seem to remember doing something like that in a previous attempt at about 4am last night!
@snoek, when installing Windows keep the eGPU disconnected until right before installing Adrenalin. Make sure when you run DDU, check the option to disable windows from automatically updating and installing drivers.
@andygev35, Thanks, I definitely did that but somehow it didn't seem to work.
I will enable wifi after I have stopped windows auto updating.
That worked for me to get the Vega 64 running, thanks so much. I think it definitely needed Version 1903 v1 and boot security to be disabled.
Now I’m going to create a restore point and try to make the RTX work (especially as I am pretty sure I can get this to work again), Possibly the problem I had with the RTX could be having the Apple boot security active.
@jonodavis, Strange, I can definitely get my MacBook running with the Vega 64 but following your instructions word-for-word I still get error 12. I have also tried running DDU in safe mode and disabling FaceTime, Intel Iris and the bottom three PCI Express Root ports.
Sadly I think that the RTX is going to have to go back and I will either stick with the Vega 64 (which I had wanted to give to my son) or buy a new AMD card & eGPU box.
Just wanted to share, with MacBook Pro 2020 i7 (4x TB3 port) + Razer Core X + Gigabyte RTX 2070 Super + BootCamp (windows 10 2004) it was simply plug n play, no need to fresh install windows or anything, no need to go to safe mode or uninstall any driver etc., just connect the eGPU to Mac in any port, install nVidia driver, that’s it..
