I'm on a 2018 Mac mini on 10.15.1 and bootcamped with 1903 18362.295. Went to boot into windows today and only the taskbar and background was displayed in windows. Was able to boot into macOS with no problem. I'm at a loss as to what it could be. I should note windows has no trouble booting with the igpu, and that no updates(besides the windows defender definition updates) have been installed since my last successful boot into windows with the egpu 2 days ago.

Any good fixes for this?

Sounds like one of those much un-loved random Windows “undocumented features”. 😅

I shut down mine and re-booted the one time something similar happened.  Problem solved.
