I am getting this error after trying to boot from EFI BOOT with my nMP. Am I doing something wrong? I formatted the USB stick with MS-DOS (FAT) and put the EFI folder on it.

EDIT: File attached

@zipp0rsch The application did not find any file system containing "EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi".

Weird, is this maybe some lowercase/uppercase issue? The files are on the stick.

does this work with just the internal screen for the purpose of accelarating apps that need nvidia/cuda? or does it always need an external screen?
if only the internal screen, is it necessary a headless HDMI?

(MBP mid 2015, amd dgpu)

Thank you

Nothing is changed regarding the internal screen acceleration. See the sections Use the "Prefer external GPU" option and Set an external eGPU-connected display as the primary display:

Looks good. Lower/uppercase shouldn't matter but you can try. @itsage got it working with the nMP, right?

Following from  https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/how-to-keep-mbps-irisiris-pro-activated-when-booting-into-windows-boot-camp/paged/7/#post-4554,
Would there be a way to use this to simply disable the AMD 560X dGPU and enable the Intel 630 iGPU on the internal screen? No eGPU involved using Windows 10 1803.

Right now, a combination of set_os_osx.efi and gpu-switch integrated.bat gives me au unusable machine once you reboot showing rotating small patterns on the screen.

@goalque Yes automate-eGPU EFI has worked great on my nMP with both Nvidia eGPU and older non-supported AMD eGPU such as R9 Fury.

@jya Windows eGPU can be set up on that Mac without any additional modifications. That's how I've been using it. I'll post a guide soon.

@zipp0rsch I had the same issue on my MBP 11,3, and finally found out...for some reason, I need to name/label the USB drive itself sth. other than "EFI"...

@goalque thanks for the great work!
