I have a 2015 13 inch MacBook Pro running windows 10 1703 stock iso. I manage to get everything installed except when I try to boot with the ogpu connected, I stay stuck at windows logo. I recently upgraded from 2015 MacBook Air and I had no issues whatsoever with the akitio thunder 2 and my 1050 ti by evga. please if any one can direct me to where I can get this issue resolved ill gladly send some $. thanks in advance

Please attempt these fixes to get Windows boot working:

1. Delayed hotplugging

2. Boot via apple_set_os.efi

eGPU Setup 1.35    •    eGPU Port Bandwidth Reference Table

I also did automate gpu sh. works on the Mac OS fine. just can't seem to get the windows side to work efficiently. akitio thunder 2/evga 1050 ti/ MacBook Pro 13 inch early 2015 2.7 i5

Please boot windows without egpu connected and with apple_set_os.efi. Then use the script here:  https://github.com/0xbb/gpu-switch, run integrate.bat as admin. Reboot your device with apple_set_os.efi again, this should solve your freeze problem. It can also accelerate your internal screen with your eGPU.

Lasthing, make sure your dGPU is disabled in Windows Device Manager

 Thanks for your resonse. at first i had done all the metioned above. what i did to get things working (still unstable boot but gets past windows screen and spinner with egpu connected)

1. created mac os sierra install bootable usb using stock 10.12 sierra.

2.bootcamped windows 10 stock 1703 build

3. without egpu connected i did all the bootcamp and system updates.

4. after updates were complete, i connected my egpu (akitio thunder 2/ evga 1050ti sc 4gb) windows recognized as "Microsoft Basic Display Driver" i updated it.

5. could not restart systematically, so i restarted manually (with egpu connected) and was able to get past windows and spinner screen with no problem.

hope this works for any one. still having to try and boot a few times before screen comes on, but im ok with that. thank you to all who took sometime and helped.

it worked for a short time then began having issues
