2020 13" MacBook Pro [10th,4C,G] + RX 5700 @ 32Gbps-TB3 (CM MasterCase EG200) + macOS 10.15.4 & Win10 1903 [itsage]
@itsage, thank you so much for your contribution！！！ i got the egpu working without error 12!!!
But there was a problem that bothered me. I set a login password, which caused the external monitor to not display any screen when I turned on, and it would not display until I logged in to the system.
Do you have any good idea？
Hello @itsage, you say with the windows 10 2004 build that the nvidea Egpu was plug and play, did you not have any conflict with the internal graphics card at start up? Many thanks
@shane1033, Nvidia eGPU can work on the 2020 Ice Lake MacBook Pro plug and play as long as it has at least Win10 2004. If you have the eGPU connected at boot, you'd need an EFI boot loader in order to keep the iGPU activated. Otherwise the iGPU gets disabled when the system detects there's eGPU at boot. I usually hot-plug in Windows Desktop with an Nvidia eGPU so that I can use the iGPU for internal display.
@itsage, thanks for your response. I’ve tried tried cold plugging and hot plugging on my new MacBook Pro 13” 2020 with windows 10 2004 and I still get a blue screen then the computer restarts, i think my processor is the i5-8257U which runs coffee lake? Correct me if I’m wrong.....is it still possible
I finally got past the error 12 and got the AMD software installed, but I am encountering error 43 now when I hotplug or cold plug. Any tips here?

@itsage, Are you eventually able to update Windows after you get everything working? I am horrified by the idea of running a non-patched Windows, seems like it is asking for the worst of the internet to just crawl down into the computer and take ownership. I've read some comments that suggest updating afterwards works, but others say no.
