@itsage, I will attempt to update the boot loader by reinserting my old 256gb original drive and installing Catalina that way to get the new bootloader.

 

yes I am currently using Catalina, but with an older boot loader. Specefically version 151.0.0.0.0, and per other form the latest is 162.0.0.0.0.

 

i don’t remember that snippet of info about pre-2014, thanks for that!

Edit: add bootrom versions

Are there any plans to support Big Sur?

Use Purge-Wrangler which has Big Sur support.

@goalque, Hey, how u doing? 

I tried every solution on this website and unfortunately I cant run my egpu with my macbook booting win10 on bootcamp in a way that it is reliable. 

Using the automate-egpu EFI 1/10 Times it is booting fine with the igpu and the egpu active. The other 9, either it is booting without the egpu being activated or it is starting up the egpu but stuck at the win logo.

One year ago this solution was working in an amazing way and thank u so much for this EFI!

I hope you could help me.

 

System:

Macbook Pro 13 4TB 2018 i5 8259U

igpu: intel iris plus 655

egpu: sonet br.away 350 with Sapphire RX 570

mac os 10.15.7

Win 10 1903 

AMD drivers from bootcampdrivers.com

So, scuppered now I've upgraded from a RX560 Breakaway Puck to a 5700XT+Razer Core X with my Mac Mini 2018

I've been happily runnning the RX560 with Mojave and Windows 10 Bootcamp (using the EGPU EFI bootable USB). Note at the EFI boot screen options it stated "eGPU detected".

After setting up the Core X + 5700XT and noting Mojave didn't see it, I upgraded to the latest Catalina on my Mac Mini 2018. Now MacOS can see and use it just fine.

I was hoping I'd simply be able to get into Windows 10 Bootcamp using the same method as before with the RX560, which was boot from the USB stick (RX560 box connected via DP to monitor, and HDMI to monitor from Mac Mini so I can see boot screen). After choosing to boot to Windows 10, I would unplug the HDMI straight away, then switch the monitor to DP and, bingo, Windows 10 with working RX560 eGPU.

Unfortunately, this doesn't work with the 5700XT+Core X combo. the bootable USB states "No eGPU detected", and when choosing the Windows 10 boot option and unplugging the HDMI, it doesn't load into Windows. If I plug in the HDMI to see what's going on, I see a flashing Win 10 logo.

If I don't plug in the Core X, and use the normal Windows 10 bootcamp boot option from the Mac's menu with HDMI plugged-in, it boots into Windows just fine. I then plug-in the Core X with Windows finding the 5700XT but, of course, Error 12.

I've disabled some devices in Device Manager to no avail.

Any ideas very welcome!

Thanks

 

[Update: Seems I'm going nowhere now: the Core X just made a click noise and then took out the electricity in the room and the rest of downstairs - breaker had tripped! Got electricity on again and waited until the computer had powered-up again before trying to turn on the Core X. Powered it on and it made an almighty bang and took out the electricity again. The PSU of the Core X smells of something burned inside. Hope it's not taken out the 5700XT!]

@dimi, try purge wrangler.  Automate EFi didn’t work for me. It will work for you in all likelihood.
