New Bootcampdrivers.com December drivers for AMD eGPUs are going to be released this week according to this post https://bootcampdrivers.freeforums.net/post/4367/thread

Here's hoping it can also somehow solve the error 12 all of us 16-inch Macbook + AMD eGPU people are getting.

Did the version of windows as in home or pro matters? My previous Macbook pro 15inch work like a charm with Windows 10 Pro.
While my 16inch having issue with black screen, error 12 with Windows 10 Home.

Purely a hardware issue or it truly matter to use Windows 10 Pro?

I've tried the steps with Windows 10 Pro (1903) and Windows 10 home (1903) and got error 12 in both cases. I sometimes got the black screen when I did not run DDU in safe mode. This does seem like an error specific to 2019 16-inch MacBooks with ADM eGPUs (I've only found 3 out of 12 users who got past error 12). I previously had a gtx1080 that was pretty much plug-n-play even using the latest version of Windows.

I made a list of people with 16-inch MacBooks using AMD eGPUs to see if I could spot any hardware differences in the builds that work and those that don't. It appears as the eGPU enclosure used is the only major difference between working and non-working setups, though it may not have anything to do with it.

@jon_meadows

you are doing gods work here... subbing to see where this ends up and if some sort of fix is found.

I'm thinking the 2016 MBP is best paired with RTX cards due to both error 12 issues and sub optimal drivers for Navi cards.

2017 13" MacBook Pro Touch Bar
GTX1060 + AKiTiO Thunder3 + Win10
GTX1070 + Sonnet Breakaway Box + Win10
GTX1070 + Razer Core V1 + Win10
Vega 56 + Razer Core V1 + macOS + Win10
Vega 56 + Mantiz Venus + macOS + W10

I'm using the new 16" MacBook Pro too with Razer Core X and Radeon VII and I managed to fix error 12 in Bootcamp. 

For anyone who has suffered from error 12 with AMD eGPU, try this:

Sounds like it would be good to have a set of drivers that exclude the 5500m drivers for folks wanting to just use eGPUs in Windows. Can only hope @mat_hd is able make this option?

Haha, that’s the only option I’ve discovered so far. It would be great if I can get all cards up and running!

I'm not sure why error 12 are so common in the 2019 16" MacBook Pro. Other than this build with the XG Station 2 + RX 5700 XT, I've successfully tried the 16-in MBP with Razer Core V2 + Radeon VII, R43SG-M.2-TB3 + RX 5700, Mantiz Venus + RX 5700 XT. Even though the Razer Core X showed up in most of those error 12 builds, I don't think the enclosure is the culprit. In other words the Razer Core X is really popular.

Windows 10 version would be the most crucial in my opinion. The second is preparation prior to connecting the eGPU. My approach is to always DDU prior to setting up or switching an eGPU so that Windows is cleansed of GPU drivers and Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe port associations. Also make sure to open OPTIONS in DDU and disable Windows auto drivers install feature. Every time Windows detects a new component, it wants to automate the drivers installation so that no user interaction is required. Unfortunately Thunderbolt 3 Security settings are different for each computer brand and the Thunderbolt drivers can interfere with device detection.
