@oliverb, decided to downgrade to the Win 10 1903 build (18362.30) since some were saying that they weren't getting Code 12 with that one, but unfortunately, still no luck 🙁 

 

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
MacOS Catalina + Windows 10
2.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Radeon Pro 455 2 GB

 
2016 15" MacBook Pro (RP455) [6th,4C,H] + RX 580 @ 32Gbps-TB3 (Razer Core X) + macOS 10.15.4 & Win10 1903 [build link]

You must follow the guide step by step. If you miss just one little step, you get a black screen. Just rebooting with eGPU gets a black screen for everyone.

Can confirm that Windows Ver. 2004 and beta Big sur still works with Nvidia and my sonnet egpu. Hot plugging still required after boot into windows but zero issues playing any games off the gpu

Did my eyes just deceive me or did Techen actually write  ...."and beta Big sur still works with Nvidia and my sonnet egpu".....  Apple's new beta actually working with Nvidia Video Cards????

Hallelujah if so, LOL.

Will burst your bubble but am sure this thread is under bootcamp so what I meant was I updated to big sur and with the firmware updates that come with that nvidia still works plug and play in bootcamp if that makes more sense. It won’t boot into windows or Mac while the egpu is connected only when windows is loaded can I use it.

@techen, Yes Techen, of course we all understand what you meant to say but my old eyes lit up like a christmas tree when I read what you wrote, LOL. Thanks for the clarification though. Maybe one day!

B) AMD cards:

1. Download AMD drivers von bootcampdrivers.com
(Important Note: Why bootcampdrivers drivers? Because standard AMD drivers (eGPU) and Apple AMD drivers (dGPU) collide, bootcampdrivers support both.)

2. Reboot your system into Safe Mode. ("Change advanced startup option" -> "Restart now" -> Option 4/5)
3. Uninstall all AMD Drivers with the Tool "DDU" which is coming with the Bootcampdrivers.
4. Install Bootcampdrivers downloaded in 1, "Radeon Pro Series" will appear under "Display Adapters". Reboot without eGPU.

5. HotPlug eGPU => AMD eGPU will be yellow banged with error 12.
6. Reboot, but before you reboot => Go to Step C7.

C) AMD+nVidia: Preparation that internal display will be working after reboot:

7. Uninstall the eGPU directly from Device Manager: (Do not delete the drivers)

8) Reboot immediately. Done.

@oliverb, i realize this is a super old post, but this is actually the only solution that I've found to my problem with my 2017 MBP and RX480/akitio node. It works great once I reboot, but I run into problems the second time after turning my computer on. that is, following all the above steps through uninstalling device manager->reboot behaves fine. Turning my computer off for the night and booting up normally the next day will also work fine. However, turning off my computer that day and booting up on the third day causes it to hang on the windows boot screen. The only way I've solved this problem is by force shutdown, booting up without the eGPU plugged in, and repeating the above steps.

It's not really a huge problem but it is annoying that I have to go through the same steps every three times I'm booting my computer. Thoughts?
