2015 15" MacBook Pro [4th,4C,H] + RX Vega 56 @ 16Gbps-TB2>TB3 (Razer Core X) + macOS 10.15.1 [revstate]
I am new to this forum. I own a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) without discrete internal graphic card. I am using Catalina 10.15.2. I want to follow your steps to attach an eGPU. But when I follow the instruction to go to the link PurgeWrangler and press "download", it opens up a blank page and nothing happen. I didn't find any PurgeWrangler.sh there. Is the site temporarily stop responding, or I missed something? Can you help?
PurgeWrangler page seems to be fine. There is no download button. Instead, click the "Get purge-wrangler.sh" link which leads to the git hub page.
Copy the command there that starts with "curl " and paste it into Terminal.app.
thx so much. I think it was my ad blocker blocked the page from loading. I can see the page in my iPad but in my mac. will try later. thx again.
Hi there, I also own a almost same macbookpro but with the dgpu - r9 m370x.
I have succeeded in duo booting mac os -catalina 10. 15.2 thanks for the purgewangler, and windows 10 1903 v1 thanks for the gpu switch from 0xbb and apple_boot.efi, loaded form a usb stick.
Now I am thinking of letting the linux mint 19.2 to join my macbookpro, do you happen to know that there is a specific post that had figured the triple boot out?
ps: i tried to partition my main disk but failed and since then my mac book does not allow me to partition anymore and says I don't have enough space (I have more than 100Gigs freespace!?).
Hi, I have exactly the same setup as yourself (apart from I'm on Mojave) and its simply plug and play for the Mac but in Bootcamp I just cant get passed ERROR 12.
Can I ask if you have it working in Bootcamp and would you have any suggestions I could try.
@mac-legacy, When I installed elementaryOS, I simply used Disk Utility to add a third volume for Linux. I proceeded by booting off the USB installer and that worked.
@orchoidizer There are two crucial details in solving error 12 in Boot Camp for this 2015 15-in MacBook Pro. You'd need Win10 1903 V1 ISO and stay at 18362.30 to .295. The second piece is automate-eGPU EFI boot loader with the pre-compiled DSDT file.
@itsage, thank you so much for that guidance
I wonder could you please help me a little more and perhaps point me to the appropriate pre-compiled DSDT file?
I have the automate-eGPU EFI v1.0.5 package and I'm assuming I need to integrate the DSDT file in there somehow.
Could you please explain to me (as if I was a 10yr old) how to do that. (I'm nowhere near as tech savvy as people on here seem to be).
Thanks for your help. I've spent so much money (that I had no right spending), I really NEED to get this to work.
@orchoidizer, Here's our DSDT repository. Look for the Apple_2015-15in_MacBook_Pro zip with the matching configuration as your machine. Unpack, rename the modified-dsdt.aml to dsdt.aml and copy it to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/WINDOWS/ inside the automate-eGPU EFI volume. Here's my build guide for the 2015 15-in MacBook Pro + RX 580 eGPU.
@itsage, thanks again sir. Your help is so much appreciated. Hope this gets me on my way
