Ok, I will try to do it as soon as possible! I need some time in order to do it.

I discovered only one problem now, if I boot Windows from my internal SSD (no external USB key) with Akitio Node attached, Windows hangs after few seconds, with the Windows logo. If I boot without Akitio Node attached, Windows boots normally... I need to investigate with others tests...

Yes, this is normal. The USB key (apple_set_os.efi) is required on every boot to keep iGPU activated. To avoid complexity, Apple’s USB-C to USB adapter is recommended (no hubs). The Node must be connected to the second TB port on the left, closest to you.

Damn... followed your instructions, now my MacBookPro doesn't boot anymore from the external USB Key... :o((( 

 

When I select the external EFI USB Key it starts with MacOS and not with Windows OS.

 

If I boot normally Windows OS it hangs at boot when Akitio is connected.

 

p.s. with Test mode off and dsdt deleted still error 12

"1. Open Startup Disk on macOS, choose BOOTCAMP partition and restart the Mac with the USB stick."

Should boot into Windows.

It works!! Thank you!

 

In my tests (with Test mode off) I haven't tried this, I mean to select the BOOTCAMP in MacOS as boot disk.

I tried again with the start manager trick, with TEST mode off and without dsdt table modified it doesn't work, even if I disable and then I enable the PCI bridge. It returns to me the 12 error always.. :o( (boot from external USB key)

Okay, Windows 10 Anniversary update doesn't free up resources as well as 10.0.10586.

What does the test signing mode do? Is there any disadvantage to do that?

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
