I looked into this, it seems that user posted a screenshot and hotplug is not enabled in bios for Y580 

Same as for the Y480 model 

A youtuber advised you can uninstall using DDU, reinstall old driver and then upgrade and it works well. 

 

May just be for the lenovo models though? 

   

Did the Y480/Y580 users have problems specifically with 372.90? That's when the problems started. @hwfreak reports a couple of screens up a Polish Y580 user running 376.09 without problem. A reddit NGFF.M2 NUC user also posting working screenshots with 376.09 + Win8.1.

Here is screen from Lenovo Y580 with i7-3630QM, dGPU GTX660M and Windows 8.1 Pro. eGPU GTX 1060 6GB

eGPU works on 372.90 and 376.19 drivers :/

Maybe Windows 10 is screwed?

I was thinking the same as hwfreak. Only success stories I've seen were not on w10

HWFreak has advise in offline correspondence that he'll be testing across different machines and OS to try to isolate this issue further. Reports suggesting Lenovo Y510P/Y480/Y580 are immune to this error 43 problem.

Hey man what is the Windows 10 build version you using in this test?

I have the lenovo y40-70 w/ beast v8 NGFF and i am gonna receive my cable in the mail in a few days. I'll test latest drivers w/ gtx 660 on windows 10

Lenovo y40-70

intel core i7 4510, 8gb, AMD R9 M275X

I got an egpu because my radeon card died in a tragic death of a pop and a crackle. Memory killed itself hard. .2gb effective? ill check my bios again for hotplugging tho not sure if it can its the basic lenovo, shitty, bios.

Update, Still isn't here :/ From what it seems like Nvidia Fixed the issue according to some people. I saw the 1050 run with a ngff which uses at oldest one of the "blacklisted" drivers on a you-tube video

I have an eGPU setup with a T460p Thinkpad and a GTX 560 and 1060. The NGFF.M2 slot I use is not hotplug enabled. However, the GTX 560 works perfectly fine with the new 376.33 driver, but the GTX 1060 gives error 43 with the same driver, and thus requires a rollback to 372.70 to work. Can anyone with a larger Nvidia graphics card collection find out where between the 560 and the 1060 cards drivers past 372.70 start to cause problems?

@Third_Avenue, GTX9xx and earlier are being reported as unaffected by 372.90+ hotplug issue, eg: https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/i-got-gtx-1050-ti-to-work-with-372-70-sort-of/paged/2/#post-845

So GTX10xx + 372.90+ is the error 43 combo.
