Using the pci-sys and the apple_set_os thing and the left right dance?

I've commented on a few threads but thought it would be best to start a new thread.

I have so far been unsuccessful getting my Core X + 580 moved over from my Mid-2015 MBP due to Error 12.

My last attempt went as follows:

  • Install Windows 10 Pro 1903 V1 (18362.30) + Activated
  • Install Boot Camp drivers
  • Install .295 update
  • Reboot into Safe Mode and run DDU to remove AMD drivers
  • Shutdown, Plug-in Core X (front-left port), Turn on
  • Install BCD drivers (Adrenalin November 2019 edition)
  • Reboot (keeping Core X plugged in)

I only had power and the eGPU connected, no external devices (maybe some BT devices, unsure).

Device Manager
Properties General
Properties Driver

Previously I have also attempted to disable tb3 controllers, disable the 5500M, use automate efi boot usb, all to no avail.

Any help/insight/ideas would be appreciated!

 

 

hey man, did you get this to work?

i’m on a very similar setup, 7 days later with heaps o research and I couldn’t run the rx 590!! nearly getting a rtx 2070 and hoping it will work.

MBP 16” + razer x + xfx rx 590 + external monitor.

 

i’ve tried the v1 of windows 10 and the 2004, none of them worked, now its on the latest windows 10 with the EFI boot hack, still getting error 12.

 

any help would be much appreciated 🙏🏽

At least for me, I never got it to work with any AMD card on the 16 inch mbp. I switched to a RTX 2080 Super and its working flawlessly since.

Yes, AMD cards are plug-and-play running under Mac OS Catalina.
