Akitio Node Pro
Vega 64

Everything used to work great, but ever since Catalina I could never again boot in bootcamp with egpu. The egpu ecosystem is totally fucked for mac. I have tried everything but have concluded that it simply does not currently work - I do not believe there is a way to get egpu working in bootcamp with a 2018 13in mbp.

Apple really fucking pisses me off. They are so close to being the perfect computer for a real professional - their support of thunderbolt 3 is a godsend compared to windows laptop manufacturers, but then they do stupid shit like break linux support with the T2 encryption and break egpu use in bootcamp.

Fuck this, I am just going to build a windows PC and run it alongside my MBP.

Hi everyone!
I used automate-egpu with Aorus Gaming Box 1080 + MacOS + Win10 in High Sierra and it worked well, but when I updated to Catalina, it stopped working.

Is there anyone who knows how I can fix this?

PS. Sorry if this was written here and I have not seen

I’m using a 16inch MacBook Pro with W10 in boot camp with eGPU fine, just takes a bit of time and effort to get it to work.

Not sure blaming Apple makes any sense, boot camp is a favour they do, they don’t need to nor do they likely want to.

Could always just check the build guides and see if anyone else has a similar or the same set up up and running and then copy?

I understand its maddening sometimes but stick with it champ, the joy in getting it working will only be magnified.

Thanks a lot for that great solution supporting older macs with eGPU. For me it worked immediately, but unfortunately I discovered that there's absolutely no (positive) influence on the rendering time on Final Cut Pro X. I tried with a 2012 Mac Mini and a 2015 Macbook pro with Catalina 10.15.1 and FCPX 10.4.7. My enclosure is a Razer Core X with a RX580. I connected the monitor to the eGPU and made it the first monitor, so that the system info showed the EGPU as my primary GPU. 

The result was that the Mini was a bit slower, the Macbook was clearly slower with the eGPU... that was not my intention.

With GPUtest, the Mini was 2.2x faster than with the internal HD4000, while the Macbook was a bit slower.

Do you have the same experience?

 

Thanks,

Christof

sir can you help me a little bit..

i used this for awhile and then I wanted to use it in internal so I made EFI (100mb~)space

and copy&paste those files and tried ( https://egpu.io/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/EFI.zip ) this too

anyway problem is, when I try to run the EFI_BOOT which is the internal one that I made.

 

it says 'usb system file not found.' so.. well maybe I did something more.. anyway I can't make it work. 🙁

would you help me, just. keywords that I can find would enough. any help please. thank you. x(

After this USB install I can start from the USB. If I select macOS it just hangs (no big deal as I really need this only for Windows 10 to keep the Intel graphics card active).

If I select Windows it boots fine, but the Intel graphics card is still disabled. I need it to remain enabled for built in screen acceleration (or it's slower than the Vega 20 dGPU).

Am I missing something, or is it impossible to keep the iGPU active in Bootcamp with 2019 MacBook Pro Vega 20?

I can't seem to get to step 2 after selecting the EFI boot. I hit q, then Load Mac os...nothing happens and I can't arrow through the options. I am running catalina 10.15.1 and have done the two fixes listed in the original post. Booting into windows works, but wifi now doesn't work. I'm running a 17,1 5k iMac with an AMD dGPU and AMD eGPU. @goalque

As stated in the first page, you can't use it on internal disks.

The same happened to me when the Volume UUID was the wrong one or in the wrong place. Are you sure that it's the right one? Are you sure that you inserted the two lines in the right place, between the "boot.efi" and the "DefaultVolume" lines?

<string>boot.efi</string>
<key>MacOSVolumeUUID</key>
<string>XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX</string>
<key>DefaultVolume</key>
 

And are you sure that you are using the new automate-eGPU.efi file downloaded from this post?

Ah! I was wondering where to put the code. I just put it up at the top. I'll redo and report back. And yes, I'm using the new file.

Brilliant - the scripted version worked flawlessly on my 15" MBP Mid 2015 (with Intel iris GFX)

Still on Mojave, hopefully won't be too much work (might need to reinstall the stick selecting nVidia rather than AMD) when I eventually get the nod from IT to upgrade to Cat.

 

The only issue I ran into was one of my monitors deciding to ignore it's HDMI input 😆

Yes, I used this version and added theUUID, but it still only boots if I select Windows.

eGPU not connected it shows 2 GPU IDs. eGPU connected it shows 3 GPU IDs but states no eGPU detected. It does not update if I hot-plug the eGPU (only lists it if it's hooked up when I start up)

Windows 10 Device Manager still does not show the integrated Intel GPU, so no chance to use the 5700 XT to speed up the internal display. When I select to show hidden I see the Intel, and if I double click it says "no power" or something similar, so the MacBook must physically shut the Intel off.

Frustrating!

Do you have a key for an external boot camp drive setup?

I purchased a MacBook Pro 16" recently and using my eGPU (I'm using Radeon VII) in Windows will give me error 12. This software however fixed the issue if I follow the steps below:

 

1. Boot to macOS and restart to boot menu.

2. Plug in the eGPU to the port on the left side.

3. Boot to Windows using automate-egpu.

4. If Windows stuck at loading screen, go back to step 1.

5. If the iGPU is not loaded, the eGPU will throw error 12, go back to step 1. If iGPU is loaded, the eGPU will throw error 43 instead, go to step 6.

6. Unplug the eGPU, plug it to the port on the right side, then plug it back to the left side.

7. Error 43 will be gone and the eGPU start functioning.

 

It works but not convenient, I would like to know if there is any better way of doing this.

@aa15032261 Which Windows 10 version are you running? You can type winver into the taskbar search box to find out. Have you installed different graphics drivers for the Radeon VII eGPU or it’s the stock Apple Boot Camp drivers? Are both the Radeon Pro 5300M/5500M dGPU and Radeon VII eGPU working concurrently?

I’m using 1903 .295 build right now. I used ddu to remove the Radeon Pro driver and installed Adrenalin 2020 version. Therefore, there’s no driver for the 5500M.

Yes! I got the graphics card not found error initially, it seems like the 2020 doesn’t support eGPU yet.  Then I found a post which went through the steps of installing the driver manually and it worked! The gaming performance definitely improved compared to the previous driver.

@aa15032261,hello,my egpu is 5700xt, i have the same  trouble, i install the Radeon Adrenalin 2020 ,and then Boot to Windows using automate-egpu, Windows stuck at loading screen..., i don't know why, i nearly give up,  could you give me the post which went through the steps of installing the driver manually? thank you very much.

hello,everyone,my build : MBP 2018 13inch, EGPU:5700xt, Razer core x, MacOs 10.15.1 is perfect.

bootcamp :I follow this instruction,and  met some troubles,

  • Clean install Windows 10 1903 V1 ISO (OS Build 18362.30)                                    -done
  • Boot into Windows and install bootcamp drivers (should run automatically)      -done
  • Disable Windows updates                                                                                                 -done
  • Install update KB4512508                                                                                                 -not done(i think it’s not necessary)
  • Prepared EFI USB                                                                                                               -done
  • Generated DSDT file with this guide                                                                           -not done i can't understand what is that)
  • Boot W10 into safe mode and DDU delete   AMD drivers                                           - done DDU  only delete intel drivers,because i have no AMD iGPU)
  • Turn off macbook                                                                                                                  -done
  • Connect and turn on eGPU                                                                                             -done
  • Boot into windows via EFI USB                                                                                         -No Egpu detected in the automate-EFI v1.0.5 MENU,and the extenal Display did not work .  now:when i install the intel IGPU drivers,Windows stuck at loading screen.
  • Install   AMD drivers directly from their website, reboot (always using EFI USB) - (before install the intel igpu drivers ) I can not install AMD Drivers  , it told me that there's no AMD GPU detected(Adrenalin 2020 Edition 19.12.2),this is the drivers link:5700xt Drivers;

so ,Any idea what i should do?

Did you remove apple_set_os.efi as instructed in the first post?

Some displays are not compatible and stay black. In that case, your last chance is to set DropThunderbolt = true and SkipSetupDataForOSX = false but only at your own risk. It removes Thunderbolt ACPI configurations.

Just tried this on my 2017 iMac 5K with RP580 dGPU, macOS 10.13.6, and GTX1080ti eGPU in OWC Mercury Helios FX.
I have the latest web drivers installed, and your validation script said my system was 'clean'.

  • Copied the files onto a FAT32-formatted external HDD
  • Did EFI boot (with eGPU turned off)
  • The automate-eGPU screen loads just fine
  • Hit q, then selected 'Boot mac OS' from the menu
  • It freezes on this menu screen and never goes anywhere

Tried several times with the same result. Help? 🙂

Same problem. Did someone find a solution to this problem?

Yes, there ids no app_set_os.efi

The thing is, before updating to Catalina everything was fine. Do you see any chance i bring it back to work?

I just see that my Ethernet Port is not any more available in Network Setting. I can not even add it. 

Does this something have to do with the EFI Boot?

Im using a Mac Mini 2018 with Mac OS Catalina and Windows 10 (1903) + Razer Core X with a Vega 56. With Mac OS the eGpu works just fine but the booting in Windows 10 with the automate-eGPU EFI doesn't work since today. It gets stuck at 'load Windows'.

Any ideas?

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

For the first time a tried conect my new box-card and it doesnt work. I am a rookie in this.
My configuration is:

MacBook Pro 13 inc, Mid 2012 Thunderbolt 2
IntelHD Graphics 4000 1536 MB
Catalina 10.15.2

Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 8G DDR6
SAPPHIRE GearBox 1 Thunderbolt 3 eGFX Solution

config.plist
<string>boot.efi</string>
<key>MacOSVolumeUUID</key>
<string>034CF024-118C-4EBB-A745-C381609B830D</string>
<key>DefaultVolume</key>

automate-eGPU.efi from 2019-10-21

Some recommendation?

The problem was bad Thundebolt 2 to Th3 adapter and also not original Apple Thunderbolt cable
Now I has original Apple both.
And EGPU works 🙂
