For the information of others, whilst I gave up on the RX5700XT in my Razer Core X, I swapped it out for a RTX 2080 Super and have had no problems whatsoever using it in bootcamp. Of course the RTX 2080 Super is not recognised in OSX Catalina. Most of the sucess stories on here, rely on tricks, blocking updates, old pci_sys, dances, etc, all of which may get windows 10 to work for a session or two, but as a long term solution, good luck with that. Disaster is only an update away.

I followed same steps with a 5600XT and it works perfectly, HUGE upgrade.  Running games at 4k 60Hz and 1440p 120Hz with FreeSync.  I leave the iGPU plugged into a side monitor, and it turns off in Windows but otherwise everything functions with no additional work after setup.

Yep, the 5600XT has evolved into a nice card. It kinda hits the sweet spot for price and performance, especially in a dual boot Mac / Windows setup.

@mini-i5, Hi..... 🙂 

 

I'm not a Windows systems guy, but I've been trying to make this part work.

In Windows 2004, I navigated to the Windows\System32\Drivers folder, right-clicked and selected "Properties", and then the "Security" tab.

From there, I changed the name of the "Owner" of the Drivers folder to my user name.

Then I assigned my user name "Full Control" in Basic Permissions.

I'm not sure how to change the username of "Owner".  My listing shows "Operator Owner" (same thing?)

... and I've been trying to find where I can EDIT that name to mine?

Sorry .. too many years on MAC OSX .. been a long time since I hunted around in Windows.

Could you clarify (expand)on the steps for me?

Thanks

Regards,

Doug

I used this guide to help me.

It’s not based on the latest version, which is 2004, but it’s pretty close.

Thanks partner.... Smile

That looks very detailed and helpful.

I'll give it another try.
