Bootcamp crashes when i plug in my Nvidia egpu

Hey there, so i've been using my nvidia graphics card (EVGA RTX 2060) on my macbook (2020 13' intel base model) in bootcamp for almost 1,5 years now. 

I could get the egpu to work but only if i disabled the bluetooth device in the device manager, i dont know why. But after reinstalling bootcamp because i had some problems with it bluetooth just vanished when i started windows. After some help from the microsoft support i could reinstall the bluetooth drivers which made bluetooth work. Unfortunately this caused the problem that my macbook keeps crashing when i plug in my nvidia gpu even though i disabled bluetooth.  

I thought maybe installing the nvidia drivers (bevore plugging in my eGPU) would fix the problem, but nvidia doesnt let me install the drivers if my egpu isn't plugged in- which of course is not possible because my mac keeps crashing if i plug the egpu in.

What could i do??



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