@dimi, my biggest fear is this! I do not change my GPU RX 580 for the 5700xt. fear of losing functionality on windows.

Just updated to Big Sur tonight and now I can’t get automate eGPU to launch. When I hold down option key at startup, I can see the EFI boot option for automate egpu, but when I click it, the screen glitches quickly with blurred white text and then goes to a black screen. No menu shows like before. The system doesn’t seem to know what to do.

Also, I noticed that my Windows Bootcamp option at startup got renamed to EFI Boot. I can still click it and it launches Windows fine, but of course without egpu support.

Has anyone else faced this same issue? I haven’t tried purge wrangler because I want to get my Windows Bootcamp working again with my egpu. And as far as I know, purge wrangler only works to enable Mac OS with your egpu. Any help is appreciated.

@scensory, Format the partition and copy automate-eGPU EFI back onto it.

@scensory, for now you’ll have to use purge-wrangler or downgrade back to Catalina, automate-EFI is unsupported with Big Sur

Correct. The script will not help with bootcamp. Not sure why it isn’t exactly clear as day to most.

To everyone - PurgeWrangler has NOTHING to do with bootcamp and cannot possibly affect it.

*sigh* I was afraid this would happen. Oh well, I guess what I’m going to do is revert back to Catalina. At least then I can use my egpu with both Bootcamp and Mac OS. Appreciate the responses guys!

@scensory, EFI might not be working due to firmware update. Rolling back might not fix the issue. You might want to try debugging further (use debug mode, post logs, etc.).

@mac_editor, oh sh!t I think you might be right! I didn’t even think about the firmware getting updated. How would I be able to check if that occurred? Is there certain logs?
