Hi, i try make work bootcamp egpu with this config:

Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro13,2
Processor Name: Dual-Core Intel Core i7
Processor Speed: 3.3 GHz
Memory: 16 GB

Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter

Thunderbolt 2 cable

Akito Thunder 2 + RTX 2060

I coldplug enclosure, install drivers, shutdown/start with connect on windows logo, and all working!... from zero to 15 minutes (max).Fans on gpu start spinning at maximum speed, windows crashed, but
if i disconnect thunderbolt adapter from macbook showed message "Geforce external graphics disconnected...", and i can reconnect again, but needed few reconnects to recognise as gpu and again 0-15 minutes, and again...

Can't understand, problem with enclousre, thunderbolt or it is power supply related? 
PSU connected to gpu by 8-pin connector, and to enclosure.

Any help would be very helpful.
Thanks in advance.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Post some pics of how you have it all connected... 

Could be PSU issues or over heating.
