With my last MBP 15" I booted normal into Bootcamp, installed Bootcampdriver, installed the tb driver and it was finde with the egpu.

I didn't need some efi bootloader or something else.

@itsage Great guide, thank you. Quick question:

I recently picked up a Mac Mini and with this having an iGPU, do I still need to take the same procedures as one having a dGPU? I just tried doing a similar process that I did with my Mid-17 15" MBP without bootcampdrviers and going directly to AMD latest drivers, but it gave me an error for the 5700xt not having enough resources which is weird because I can't disable the iGPU without it effecting boot up (since on boot up its a black screen with the eGPU connected) I used the 1903 Win 10 (.30). Wondering if I should try an earlier Win 10 or if I am missing something entirely. Appreciate the help. My setup is below:

 

27" LG 5k Display (2nd Gen)

Razer Core X w/ AMD 5700XT

Mac Mini (2018/2020)

 

Cables: 1x Moshi 5k DisplayPort to TB3, 2x TB3-TB3

 

 

Edit: Also, wondering if STEP 2 & 3 are recommended for Mac Mini Users. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Beautiful and understandable guide, but I have a problem with step 2:
If I run integrated.bat or everything from file, that I download from hyperlink, I see these error: (Mistake photo on Google disk: [spoiler title="https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IIl9xL6BoR6RXR31cvhx3Ka3Z_CpNQ9O/view?usp=sharing, https://drive.google.com/file/d/1l9hMhIyu33Qq-s00FovEkavOVvMSvs-g/view?usp=sharing, https://drive.google.com/file/d/1unbzyP_FJ79GG_IPQCFF6gy2R-O0OaMO/view?usp=sharing"] [/spoiler] )
(In English: Code execution cannot continue because the system failed to detect MSVCR120.dll. To fix the problem try reinstalling the program)
Obviously, it's impossible, because I don't instal it.
How to fix this mistake?

@mattyu36, It's likely the system requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 to run the the script.

Hmmm... But I install it and restart windows before that...
As a result I instal MVS 2015 and it's working without restart.

I try to instal AMD drivers (I have MBP 15" 2017+Sonnet 650+Radeon VII), but their program don't find AMD's hardware, so I instal last drivers from bootcampdrivers.com. After that, windows started very long (I waited 30-40 minute, but it isn't working and I restart Mac in macOS). How to fix it?

Now it's crashed after installed Bootcamp drivers and stars from checkpoint without bcd.
Hot-plug is sometimes working, sometimes crash windows(10, build 1903 - best for eGPU), if it not crash, it's working very-very slow, slowly then Radeon 555 in Mac(
Help me fix it, please.

I’m happy to report success with a 2017 MB Pro>Razer Core X>RX5500 XT.

I had to disable the camera port (port #10 for me)

Thank you so much for this guide.

[UPDATE] disabling the camera only worked temporarily. I continued to run into error 12 after a reset/shut down. Spent many hours trying disabling other devices, but could not maintain it working through a reset/ shut down.

[SOLVED] Finally found the solution in trying the other thunderbolt 3 port. I feel dumb not trying that first. It now works even past a reset/shut down every time. Did NOT need to disable any devices after this. Everything is working as normal.

I am so grateful I found this community and I'm hoping I can get some help.

I have a late 2017 MacBook Pro 15in with the bar. I also have the BlackDesignMagic eGpu with an AMD 580 card. I installed windows with bootcamp. I downloaded the AMD bootcamp driver but I cannot get the eGPU to work.

I'm kind of stuck because I am using the eGPU to run my external monitor as my screen is FUBAR.

I the EFIboot solution I found on YouTube but it was from 2018.

I am really confused as to what I should do. I am not very technologically sound but I can follow directions well.

I would appreciate help if possible.

Which port did you use? I plugged my eGPU to the top left port.

Hi itsage, I got a MBP 15' late-2016, and the article mentioned that it is suggested to integrate DSDT override into automate egpu efi, but I have no clue how exactly I could do it... Would you mind talks about it a little bit?

I really appreciate it!!!!
