Bootcamp issues with 2016 15'' MacBook Pro w/ TouchBar + Akitio Node Pro + RX 570

Hi, first of all, thanks for this community and everyone that helps noobs like me.

I installed a ASUS ROG Strix 570 4GB in the Akitio Node Pro and plugged in my MacBook Pro (Hish Sierra 13.4). It was pretty much plug-and-play. The few games that I had on Steam that demanded hardware worked great. But for some reason XCOM 2 didn't work at all. The game would start, but I got a lot of flickering and black spots in the scenarios.

Anyways, I tried to follow TheITSage guide but I got stuck in "If the iGPU shows up in Device Manager as “Microsoft Basic Display Adapter,” you may need to install the Intel graphics drivers manually."

I downloaded Intel's utility software, and it simply doesn't recognize my Intel HD 530, so in the device listing, I still see the "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" (I was able to remove Apple's with DDU, at least). 

I think because of that, when I try to run integrated.bat or dedicated.bat it says that it's missing a .dll. 

Needless to say, plugging and unplugging the eGPU does nothing. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

Yes, I saw another post that you recommended this, but it didn't work for me. I installed it, but got the same error message. Does this help to detect the proper Intel card as well?

How many "Display adapters" in Device Manger are you seeing when the eGPU is connected? If you're seeing only two: “Microsoft Basic Display Adapter” and "GeForce GTX 970" it means the Intel iGPU was deactivated at boot. You'd need apple_set_os.efi to keep the iGPU activated when booting into Windows.

I was seeing two, but I deleted one of them and now I see only one "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter". I installed rEFInd (so I'm seeing two options to boot). Should I uninstall it and go with the apple_set_os.efi?

Thanks!

I thought it rEFInd plus apple_set_os.efi. Granted I don’t have a dGPU in my MacBook Pro, when rEFInd boots up, I select apple_set_os.efi, the script runs, then I boot into Windows.
