@all, DIY eGPU Setup 1.35 has been used successfully to detect and configure a eGPU on 2012 15" GT650M MBP using Windows 10/8/7 installed in MBR/BIOS mode

This software is available at https://egpu.io/egpu-setup-13x/ where full compatibility is listed

   

Thanks for the reply!! Are you planning to support EFI? And mbp 2016? Or is just a hardware limitation? it really would be the ultimate solution for everything...
Cheers.

Should be great to know if something is planned... or not possible.

I'll let you know if something is release. For now, MBR mode provide an alternate boot method that remains an avenue to consider for eGPU detection issues on some MBPs using TB3->TB2 adapters.

I have so many things in windows, that I am not able to reinstall it just because I have to use mbr 🙁 ... that's why I am asking... I will not need it till mantiz arrive though... 😉

@nando4, as I saw in other thread for another thing. It could be possible to create a USB with the DIY eGPU setup 1.35 and avoid the need to reinstall windows with a MBR partition...? What do you think nando4??

Take a look at this thread, that we’re reconstructing:

https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/how-to-keep-mbps-irisiris-pro-activated-when-booting-into-windows-boot-camp/

I developed automate-eGPU EFI demo but the project is on ice due to my thread hijacks at TI forum (good luck with reverse engineering - it's stripped version, all important functions removed from the source code). I accepted some beta testers but never heard back. The demo is still downloadable (for M370X equipped MBP only, early Win10 builds):

The thread I saw was this one, here:

 But I don't understand, I though that your script automate eGPU was just for mac... not for windows...

@ed_co: automate-eGPU.sh (script) and automate-eGPU EFI (UEFI application) are two distinct projects. The latter for Windows, only demo released and it is closed source. It doesn't utilize apple_set_os.efi or gpu-switch mechanism.

Nice. Thanks for the explanation!! As soon as my mantiz Venus arrive. I will try it. Mine is early 2013 mbp 15" (650M). Is it valid?
