Thanks to goalque and itsage...following itsages guide and goalques loader...I finally got everything to work.  2 days of straight head banging and two reloads from scratch (Reverted back to HighSierra as I couldn't get Mojave to work).  I forgot how finicky windows can be and had to be very, very methodical in connecting additional devices after getting the eGPU connected.

@goalque, you've done an amazing job with this. It works perfectly on MacOS 10.14, and on windows 10 bootcamp. Internal screen iGPU and external eGPU. 
But I would like to request jut one feature: is there an option to use the eGPU for the internal screen? Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I'm using a MacBook Pro 2018 I7-8850H with RX560X.

Hi @goalque,

I have tried your EFI app. And sorry if this question sounds dumb. Does this solve the Error 12 in Windows boot camp? As I am still stuck at trying to resolve error 12 after running your method.

I am using an iGPU macbood pro 13" from late 2016 with no touch bar + Mantiz Venus + GTX 1080Ti. At the EFI screen, the system recognizes two gpus but no egpu. Any advice?

Much thanks.

@finsolong

This app doesn't guarantee solving the error code 12 in all situations but should work with iGPU-only Macs.

The app loops through all the PCI devices and tries three times to read more info about the IS_PCI_VGA device but my search algorithm is not perfect and doesn't work with all kind of enclosures. It doesn't matter if you see "eGPU not detected", you can continue booting into Windows.

These options are provided by the operating system. As you got it working on macOS 10.14, you can use "Prefer External GPU" option.

Yes, MacOS works fine. I should have restated my question haha: does eGPU work on the internal screen on bootcamp?

this works fine, the system automatic set de resolution of my 4k tv to 3840x2160 but at 30HZ

then I use the app EasyRes to force 4k at 60HZ then screen blinks few times and then no signal

only when back to the default resolution the signal returns

how I can use my 4k tv at native resolution 60HZ?

PD: internal screen isn't disable when close the lit whit power, mouse, keyboard and HDMI connected 

 

(sorry for my English)

I receive an error message when trying to boot from the stick:

USB file system not found

Stick is formatted in FAT32 and I simply copied the EFI folder on the stick.

Did I do anything wrong?

Use Disk Utility in macOS, Format: MS-DOS (FAT), Scheme: Master Boot Record, Name: something else than "EFI".

It worked! Oh and I have to rename my USB stick from EFI to something else, but now everything´s working fine. 🙂

@goalque

First of all thank you for this great tool. You definitely deserve a beer or two or three .....

just a couple of clarifications b4 I set it up.
i use a mbp 13 2018 4tb3 with a gaming box rx580 on the latest fw for full performance.
everything works fine on macOS 10.14.2 (well apart from not recognizing the box tb controller as full 40gb, and getting read writes on cling of 1700 vs 2500 normal, but I resigned on this issue as for two months I could not find out what the issue is). 
Yesterday i installed windows 10 pro 1803 on an ext ssd.
everything works fine apart from code 12 not recognizing the rx580.in addition The other devices showing errors are
a mass storage controller on pci bus 2 with code 28
an unknown service on pci Express root complex also code 28.
Finally, when i check the Thunderbolt tab in device manager it shows no drivers, and option to update drivers. Is this something I should do?

do I need to copy your Efi folder to my existing ssd or create a new stick?
if I need a new stick is there an order when to connect my ssd and the gaming box.

one more thing I just show, when I plug the box after windows restarts I get a message from AORUS “out of memory”

sorry for the long messages but as I am not very experienced in mods I wanted to give you all the info

@tsakal Thanks!

As I mentioned, the EFI app only gives a good starting point for resolving Windows issues. More specialized DSDT mods are needed if Windows is not able to enumerate TB devices correctly. Seems that AMD cards tend to use larger BARs than Nvidia cards. The three USB ports on the back of the gaming box are another resource hog, as well as is adding an external SSD, if it is under the same bus.

I don't own enclosures with USB ports so can't much help. If you run the app from the external USB stick, I recommend using Apple's USB-C to USB adapter connected to a different port than where the eGPU is. Depending on the Mac model, you may have to try all TB3 ports until you find the one that works with the eGPU.

Thank you for the prompt reply. 
If I knew I woould also go for the 100% recommended boxes. But I saw so may positive reviews and the size was to good to ignore. Anyway the next one will be different. 

Re the USB ports on the box i am not using them the firmware I used is the one that puts them in the back seat. 

RE your EFI App. Does it apply when bootcamp windows is on an external ssd?  In that case do I still need a separate usb stick or  I need to copy the app in the ssd.  Do I still need to boot with the option key pressed?
If you answer yes and no above, shall I keep the usb and ssd on the same side and the egpu on the other side? And have everything connected before booting? 

Thanks and sorry to bother you again.

@tsakal I haven't played with Windows recently, Win10 installed on the internal SSD is confirmed to work. I don't remember seeing successful reports of external SSD and no time to make necessary changes to the app. The EFI folder can be copied on any MS-DOS (FAT)/MBR partition but the USB stick is the easiest way.

Option key is necessary unless you are adventurous enough to try "Launch on startup" option (functionality may vary depending on the Mac firmware).

@goalque This is fantastic. I've been able to use my AMD Vega 64 without issue on my 13" MBP but have been beating my head against Bootcamp for a couple of months with Code 12 errors. Finally able to get Win10 running and was able to give my son my desktop gaming system in favor of an ultra-portable system. Thanks so much to both you and @itsage for all your hard work. If you have Patreon or anything similar let me know; happy to tip you a coffee or beer for your time and efforts.

Thanks for the work.
I just tried to use your auomatet egpu EFI as starting Point with Bootcamp.
Creation of the Media was fine, but when booting from it it doesent recognize the egpu.
I use:
Sonnet breakaway Box, and MB Pro 13" 2017, and AMD RX570.
What do I wrong?

See screen.

Thank for advice.

Hello @goalque

I followed the DSDT override method by @nando4 and took the dsdt-modified.aml file from the final step and copied it into D:\flashdrive\EFI\CLOVER\ACPI\WINDOWS, renaming it to dsdt.aml
The issue I'm running into is a system freeze when attempting to perform an EFI boot into Windows 10.

Any ideas? Thanks!

I didn't need to do anything special. Copied over the files listed in the original post from @goalque in this thread to a removable key drive (brand shouldn't matter but fwiw I've found the Sandisk usb-c/-a version to be very useful while transitioning to a usb-c ecosystem), named "EFI-BOOT" and when rebooting holding down Option I'm able to hot plug my CoreX and load into Bootcamp. Attaching an image for reference but ultimately was just carefully following the instructions then a series of trial-and-error reboots & tweaks to get Windows working.

Thank you this helps, it runs on my System under Windows as well.
What helped for me as well is:
Not installing the GPU Driver, in my case AMD RX570 with the AMD Installer itself.
I removed the AMD driver, Bootcamp into Windows, and then instead uf execute the AMD installer I did the follwoing:
Go into the Device Manager
I had the Error Code 31 (Driver not well installed)
Open the GPU, go to the Tap Driver
Then I cold manage to say update driver, instead for let Windows search for a driver I told to use a local on.
Gave the Directory of the unpacked AMD Driver, in my Case C;/AMD/Win10-64Bit-Radeon-Software-Adrenalin-2019-Edition-18.12.3-Dec19
Windows installed the driver.
Then boot up using the EFI Auto Boot manager.
Works!

Hope this helps somebody!

@montenegroexperte Read the last few paragraphs of the original post. Alternatively use the script-based solution.

Hi! Finally i managed to get my Sonnet Puck 570 work on my MacMini 2012 with Mojave, using the USB EFI.

One more question: As my Mac is starting every morning 9h alone, is the any option that it will automatically boot from the USB EFI and automatically load Mac OS?

Thanks on more time for help.

Mac mini 2012 server with latest High Sierra & all security updates. When I select Boot macOS from the EFI USB the system just hangs... USB is FAT32 + MBR, have deleted the apple_set_os.efi but can't make it pass the boot screen. 

My eGPU is Akitio Thunder 3 (connected via Apple's Thunderbolt 2<->3 adapter) and I'm running GTX 780 3GB. I haven't downloaded web driver as this GPU was / should be supported natively by macOS.

Any suggestions how to resolve this pls?

@goalque, nice work! Everything is working fine for me. I've seen some posts with questions about running win from external ssd, so I think it is possible.
I'm running Windows 10 from external Samsung T5. First attempts were failing - after selecting “Windows” menu item the system kept freezing. So I've just copied "Microsoft" folder from external ssd EFI partition to my Macbook internal EFI partition and now it works just fine.

@mac_editor In reference to your post dated Nov 3, 2018 @ 4:59 pm regarding the Automate eGPU EFI 1.0.5 Installer, this is to report the USB created from your automated script is "working flawlessly" with my eGPU configuration.  I have experienced no issues whatsoever running my eGPU on macOS Mojave 10.14.2 to this date.  I am yet to try running on Windows.  Many thanks for the awesome script enabling the automated EFI boot disk creation.  Kind regards.

@mac_editor Quick question in regards SIP.  Is the automate-eGPU EFI 1.0.5 meant to work with SIP disabled only ?  From my experience, all is working fine with SIP disabled but would like to run with the default OS setting of SIP enabled.  However, every time I re-enable SIP and even tough my eGPU works perfectly, I then have issues after shutting down the nMP and rebooting...  Kind  of awkward but can you help explain ?

Boot issues when SIP enabled after running eGPU, disconnecting eGPU via menu icon (if it becomes available) and powering off:

    1. Usually get black screens on boot
    2. Sometimes get to the boot loader eGPU menu, sometimes do not
    3. When I get the boot loader menu, I can select macOS and then either goes in a loop or get a panic kext report on the next successful boot (this is without the USB stick installed).  However and sometimes, it will actually boot into macOS where the eGPU would then work correctly.

@slhdsnet I recommend keeping SIP disabled whenever the goal is system modifications (regardless of methodology). IIRC automate-eGPU EFI auto-disables SIP when used, so ideally it would work in any SIP configuration (and thus enabling SIP doesn't matter, since it gets disabled). All the issues you list are new to me as I haven't enabled SIP in a very long time (haha). A variety of factors could be at play here after you manually enable SIP (modified OS boot, eficheck fails, etc.) and I don't really have the technical understanding of everything to be able to point fingers at something specific.

@montenegroexperte  I cannot confirm on behalf of other's setup configuration but in my case, I upgraded to 10.14.3 (18D42) and then crossed my fingers... and voila, everything is working flawlessly !!  I am using the USB EFI loader.  No issues whatsoever.   😉

Sounds good. Did you remove the stick for the update or did you make it with the stick active?

@montenegroexperte  Yes, I did remove the stick and disconnected the TB cable from the eGPU.  After the update, installed the USB stick, reconnected and booted.  All good from there.  Cheers.
