@eightarmedpet, My ASUS MB16AC has been great for the native Mac boot option. It also provides extra space for performance stat windows/apps. It's almost a detachable display. I think it's useful in your build with the 1st gen UltraFine 5k. I found these pictures from a 2018 Mac mini + RX 5700 XT setup that you may find interesting [build link].

@itsage, why on earth I didn't just go to that guide first I have no idea... just made a bit of a mes of things but then reset it all and used apple_set_os and OS based GUI Bootdrive select to get into W10 (blind).

Monitor was behaving a bit odd but worked after a few replies (didn't think it was working until I heard a loud W10 chime from a blank screen).

A USB monitor for boot makes total sense, that one looks lovely but maybe a bit extravagant for me as I'd only be using it as a bootpicker.

@eightarmedpet, Good to hear you got a reliable procedure with the eGPU + LG UltraFine 5K in Boot Camp. We'd love to see photos of the final build.

@itsage updated with an awful pic but a very interesting finding... by daisy chaining I get a boot screen!

 

Next up I just need to find a quieter fan for the Node lite

@eightarmedpet, That's really cool the boot screen works through daisy-chaining. 😀

@eightarmedpet, Just checking to see how reliable this setup has been working for you with the boot screen support through daisy-chaining. It's actually a really cool solution in your particular scenario. I'm curious to try something similar with 2018 Mac Mini + AKiTiO Node Pro + Samsung 34" TB3 CJ791 monitor.
