Thunderbolt devices not recognised anymore on windows 10 bootcamp

Hi,

I've had my Mantiz Venus (1080ti + SSD) with updated firmware running fine for weeks on a TB3 macbook pro 13 late 2016, on both macos 10.12.6 and windows 10 bootcamp.

After an unfortunate forced update to windows 10 Fall Creators, everything went south regarding thunderbolt device mounting on that system and none of my thunderbolt devices (mz and thunderbolt2 with tb3 adapter elgato dock) would mount on boot.

I tried a clean installation of W10 Anniversary (1607) + thunderbolt Bus Driver for Intel (2.0.4.250) + intel chipset update with no luck.  I also retried with W10 Creator. The mantiz is powering the mac but no graphic card / ssd is detected. Also, nothing appears in the device manager and I suspect there's an issue on thunderbolt device mounting during boot.

Also tried SMC + NVRAM reset and a full formatting + high sierra reinstallation with no success.

Anybody got any clue of what's going on?

Leo

Had the same problem. MBP 15 2016 tb, aorus gaming box, win 10 bootcamp - at first time system recognize egpu, but then was some "critical" update, and now win10 don't recognize egpu at all. After reinstall win10 download and install update at first, and egpu still not recognize.

I think I am having a similar problem on my 15" MacBook pro 2017.  On the left side it recognizes it but wont run because of the error 12 issue and on the right when plugged in it shows a thunderbolt device is plugged in, but gpu doesn't show and I get a connect sound follow by a disconnect sound when I first plug it in.  I have tried the original apple thunderbolt drivers as well as newest drivers that come with the Intel NUC

I don't think it's linked. It has always been recommended to plug egpu to the left ports of mpbs. Also, error 12 can be fixed by several ways depending on your hardware.

I tried both of my tb3 port, and my egpu won't even show in the device manager. Seems to be related to thunderbolt drivers / firmware, but I really have no clue how to fix it.

I seem to have spoken too soon beforehand.

My MBP was working regardless of which port I was using in windows... until something happened and my setup now behaves exactly how you described. I hope there is an easy fix for this... because since then I have stopped using it.

I had the same issue before twice. What I did was I disconnected the main power, disconnected gpu from psu and reconnect gpu and that solves my issues. I hope this would help to everyone

Ok, I think I have a related problem: I've always used mantiz Venus with 1080ti on the right port of my macbook 2017, and a thunderbolt 3 elgato dock in the left port. I'm not sure if it was after I updated to High Sierra, or if windows did an auto update (gotta check), but my thunderbolt 3 dock stopped working on Windows. On Macos it works 100%.

Even without the graphic card, the SSD installed in the Mantiz won't mount so the issue is deeper than that :/

I had a very similar issue, while this won't fix error 12. NVRAM and SMC reset usually do the trick when trying to make bootcamp detect my Mantiz, on my 2016 MBP

Just make sure you get the button combos correct for SMC reset. On the newer MacBooks the process is different than most tutorials and its not always clear SMC was reset correctly.
