So I just found out that the official AMD drivers are not meant for Apple Bootcamp devices, which means I'm not able to get the latest drivers.

Is there any way I can make an RX Vega work on Bootcamp?

I'm running Crimson drivers 17.9.1 (latest version) on my late 2016 15" MacBook Pro. They will install and work fine.

That's odd, I must have done something wrong? I downloaded the updater and it wouldn't let me update. I would get a 173 error (will make screenshot tomorrow).

Which mac are you on?

AMD have disabled installation of their drivers for their GPU's running on Apple hardware. For my R9 M370X I'm forced to use something like  http://www.bootcampdrivers.com  

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

Okay, I've updated the drivers for my MacBook Pro late 2016, but I think the version of the drivers is too old for the RX Vega. It's still not recognized in my device manager. Also the drivers installed are quite buggy. I can definitely feel a slight delay in comparison to the stable Apple approved drivers.

How did you manage to get RX Vega drivers for MB late 2016?

I am in the process of setting up bootcamp with Windows 10 and will report back on if I get any errors installing the AMD Crimson drivers...

RX Vega works great on Bootcamp, see my post. 

It works with AMD drivers even if they say it's not intended for BootCamp users.

If you look closely, they say the same thing for every driver they provide, even for Polaris video cards.

The problem is the software not letting me update.

I see the first step on your tutorial is installing Windows ANNIVERSARY EDITION. Is this necessary? I'm on Windows 10 Education.

Please install official desktop drivers directly from AMD. They're not meant for Boot Camp but work perfectly fine.

Hot-plug, right click "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" and select the folder where you extracted the package, install, and restart.

No workarounds or error codes with the M370X. RX Vega is plug-and-play.

EDIT: The screenshot points to old folder, select the new "Relive Edition 17.9.1​"

Thank you! I've successfully installed it now and recognized in the device manager.
