i did that, now the yellow icon is gone with error 31 however if i disable my stock gpu and try to install the amd drivers it gives me error 173 on ame drivers installation saying they couldn’t detect my hardware. 

Under display adapter says

amd radeon pro 5500m

microsoft basic display adapter 

both without any error icon.

 

what could be happening now?

I'm not sure and am definitely not an expert on this stuff. I am using a Mac Mini, which only has the intel GPU. By the looks of things you are running a iMac or MacBook pro that also has a Radeon Pro 5500M built in? Are you trying to get the Radeon 5500M working OR another external GPU?

@welucas if using the AMD official drivers you have to install via device manger > right click > update driver > select driver location. 

if you want to use both GPUs, you’ll need to use the Bootcamp drivers.

@rak, a very frustrating time (I’ve been there, and not so long back)

a few queries for you;

  • Are you bootcamping to an external drive, or is the partition on your internal drive?
  • In regedit what update policies have you disabled - can you share a list?
  • Are you installing the bootcamp drivers via extracted folder setup or update to drivers within device manager? I know a lot of people recommend the latter but feel you miss out on some of the benefits of the Adenaline drivers such as image sharpening - makes a massive difference.
  • What port are you plugging the eGPU into? I don’t do the sacred port dance, but use the LHS ports. 
  • Have you checked Apple’s boot camp drivers are they UTD?
  • Did you give the Dec Bootcamp drivers a go?

Happy to help. You’ll get there!

 

Thanks for your help, I appreciate it!

  1. Internal drive
  2. Only set 'Configure Automatic Updates' to disabled like the guides suggest. I'm not connected to the internet, anyway.
  3. I installed the Adrenaline drivers included in the bootcampdrivers.com RED version (April)
  4. I tried every single port
  5. I simply installed the bootcamp drivers via the popup window that appears right after fresh installing Win10
  6. I didn't

So, I've finally got the eGPU working after numerous Win10 fresh installs...

Following this topic: [SUCCESS - ERROR 12] 2019 16" MacBook Pro (RP5500M) [i9 8C] + RX Vega 64 + Razer Core X + macOS 10.15.5 & Win10 1903 (295)

Important: In my case, the port dance only works if I unplug everything except the eGPU. I had a USB hub with an external keyboard connected and that led to 1. the eGPU not even showing up in Device Manager or 2. black-screen & automatic reboot on the Win10 login screen.

So, basically, I have to do these things every time I boot into Windows:

  1. Unplug EVERYTHING (keyboard, mouse, power)
  2. Plug eGPU into top left port
  3. Boot, do the 'Port Dance' as described in the link above
  4. Wait some time for Windows to boot up; log in
  5. Confirm the eGPU is working; plug in USB devices again
  6. Keep using an outdated Windows version; never update

I'll most likely return the 5700 XT for a RTX 2070 and be done with this AMD incompatibility nonsense. It's just not worth it.

Also, the title of this topic should be edited as it is not exactly true.

Hey guys,

I figured out some more interesting stuff as it pertains to a Razer Core X Chroma + iMac 5K 2017:

 

- If I stay on 1903, I can reboot while the EGPU is connected (I still have to remount the EGPU by ejecting it and physically plugging it back in, but this is better than 1909/2004 where it refuses to boot if the egpu is connected)

- With my bootcampdrivers.com drivers, when I use DDU I have to leave the 2nd box under AMD unchecked or it causes issues (either won't install or half the screen is distorted with flashing colors)

- 2004 makes some major changes to how gpus and egpus are handled so if you are having issues, I would wait to upgrade

@rak, good to hear you got this sorted. Still shouldn’t have to port dance, but guess if exchanging the card is still an option would definitely recommend if you don’t want to use an eGPU with Mac OS. 

Enjoy!

I just want to add my thanks. 

 

I updated from 1903 Windows to 2004 insider fast ring (now called DEV) and everything works flawlessly:

- used winclone to make a backup of bootcamp (not needed eventually but just to be safe)

- signed up for insider DEV

- installed latest windows

- I kept eGPU plugged in and made sure that for all reboots I press option to select the EFI boot

- once I forgot / was not fast enough with boot option so windows booted and froze -> hard reboot -> message trying to continue installation -> reboot -> all ok

 

Everything seems to be working perfectly fine. I still need to check if there are further improvements:

- booting without EFI hack (don't think it will work)

- hotplugging - got error 12 in the past on 1903

- eGPU on other TB ports - on 1903 only working left front and right back TB ports. 

- Hibernation - on 1903 windows would crash / reboot on hibernation

The reason for all this was that I had issues playing CS:GO. When starting a match for 2nd match onwards the game would freeze for 10-70s before continuing just fine. However after 30s+ all teams are usually fully already and the match has started. Funny thing: the first match after starting CS:GO always goes quick. At very first try with 2004 insider I got a slow start on 2nd match but it was fast on 3rd and 4th. I will continue to monitor. Would be great if it finally works!

Again, thanks a lot. would have never tried this without this post!

After updating to latest windows insider build (20170) yesterday - finally, everything truly works fine [as it should be normally] — windows automatically does large memory space (as me noticed this appeared in 20150 build) + loads just fine without “dongle” - usb bootloader that i used before (goalque, thx) — no more need turning on igpu while boot, no sh-t... 🤗

addt: choose boot device (by holding alt key) still doeznt work tho, only direct load...

addt2: [main] updates still need igpu turned on instead of egpu :c
