Installation Steps

  1. Use the Apple Disk Utility when booting from Recovery -OR- diskpart when using a bootable Windows 10 USB to completely wipe the drive and change the partition scheme to GPT (this will enable you to use BitLocker and FileVault at the same time).
  2. Use Internet Recovery to install macOS.
  3. Upgrade macOS to 10.13.4 or later.
  4. Use the Boot Camp Assistant to install Windows 10 Pro.
  5. Disable the TPM requirement for BitLocker in Group Policy, then enable BitLocker and allow it to finish encrypting.
  6. Hold the Option key while restarting to boot back into macOS and enable FileVault and allow it to finish encrypting.
  7. Return to Windows 10 and download the package currently available.
  8. Download the AMD Adrenaline setup program from AMD.
  9. Disable WiFi and disconnect the MacBook Pro from any other network connections, then reboot Windows into Safe Mode and run the Display Driver Uninstaller.
  10. Reboot back into Windows normally and run the setup program.
  11. Run the AMD Adrenaline setup program and allow it to fail.
  12. Reboot into Windows, connect the eGPU to the MacBook Pro (make sure the eGPU does not have an active ethernet connection) and use Device Manager to manually install the matching driver it will find from scanning the AMD directory the AMD Adrenaline setup program unpacked for temporary use on the system volume.
  13. Reboot into Windows.
  14. Shutdown the MacBook Pro and disconnect it from the eGPU.
  15. Start Windows and run the setup program again.
  16. Reboot into Windows.
