@erik_tank, Hi Erik I am one of those who has suffered from the new update of MacOS Big Sur, I have upgraded to this version innocently and I do not work my windows 10 from my portable hard drive + egpu, I use a portable disk for the simple reason that I want to separate the matter from gaming. It should be mentioned that I have the latest version of Windows 10, I am downloading version 1903 on a link that I found. How do I do a downgrade for Windows?

Sadly - you have to find a version 1 release of 1903 - the available 1903 from MVL or such already has patches applied you cannot undo.  

There is no way to downgrade windows that I'm aware of - it's a tedious start over process I'm afraid.  Maybe someone else can confirm my assumption or provide more details on a downgrade process via ISO medium.

Is this an issue with AMD?

I am running Windows 10 20H2 on 2018 MacBook Pro 15, i9 with Nvidia RTX 2080 without problem.  I have updated to latest Big Sur already.  I am running Windows on external TB3 NVMe drive.

@chocomonsters, yes these are AMD conflicts when the Mac has AMD and the eGPU has AMD as well.  NVidia doesn’t have this conflict but doesn’t work in MacOS... so it’s a trade off.

@erik_tank, Spent some time fiddling again with no luck with newest Windows 20H2 and a few of the options on this site (minus custom efi.)  I won't take a risk to hack efi or go down the custom boot loader option.  I'm not certain this is possible at this point.  i don't -need- Windows, I have some games I would like to try is all.  I can't play them in VMWare nor do they seem to work well on the eGPU in macOS (those that have a port.)

Trying to find some other options.

I'm not sure that entirely sums it up, as MBP 13" without AMD dGPU has similiar issues with AMD eGPUs?

Anyone know where to get this magical 1903 v1 build that seems to work for everyone?
