Thanks guys! So for whatever reason, disabling the camera doesn't resolve error 12 like they do for Nvidia eGPUs?

Why does it say in the text to disable Port 10 9D19 but in the screenshot port 5 9D14 is highlighted? I'm on a touch bar 2017...

@Eightarmedpet, PCI Express Root Port #5 is where the eGPU connects. You can match the Device Manager screen capture with the HWiNFO64 screen capture.

I see no port 10 though? Here is my screenshot.

the setEFI is preventing my LG 5K from working still too, so looks like this is of no use to me...

The 13" Touch Bar MacBook Pro is different. Here's the layout for the Touch Bar MBP, 13" is on the right side.

Thanks for all the info. I wish AMD was a bit easier to work with Windows, while Nvidia was easier to work with MacOS. If AMD had a eGPU in the form factor of the Aorus Gaming Box, it'd be a no brainer. Here's hoping a Vega Nano exists
