Your Mac model is one of the most problematic. Assuming that you've already installed my automate-eGPU.sh and running Windows 8/10 in UEFI (installed via Boot Camp Assistant):

1) Boot into macOS/OS X and turn on the -a mode: sudo ./automate-eGPU.sh -a

2) Select "BOOTCAMP" as startup disk, and restart

The eGPU will stay invisible during POST (power-on self test), but you may have better success rate to boot into Windows. Steps 1&2 are required after each Windows boot.

Let me know if this helps.

   

@goalque I tried your way for my system (MBP 13 '2015 + Akitio thun2 + zotac 1060) however it did not work. I boot into windows when the system freezes or wait until the spinning circles on Windows load screen forever. It is difficult to boot into windows with eGPU. Is there a way to troubleshoot booting into windows with eGPUs more easily? For MBP 13 '2015 + akitio thun2 + zotac 1060. I'm really looking forward to a way to get started really easier. help me. Thank you.

@Ken-Zu : you should consider trying my method, too - it is more time consuming, but it worth that extra 5 minutes, for the 100% succes rate, I posted it here. I think this could be a solution for you too, I'm experimenting with faster methods, but as far this was the only one, that works constantly for me.

 

EDIT: I'm using now actually DDU, what helps me fasten the uninstalling process, and also, if you'd freeze at step 6, you can try plugging it in, when the spinning wheel starts loading, for me both of these methods seems to work.

I will try it. The way of the @ddoc and @Matt does not work. It is difficult to boot into windows with eGPU on 2015 MBP 13'.

   It does not work. I hope there is a way that is more feasible?

Using my method did not work either? That is odd, as it works flawlessly all the time for me... What are you trying to do exactly? I know "the same as the other mentioned methods" but tell me exactly too, how you are trying to make it work!

@samupetho I have not tried your method yet. However, installing Nivida drivers many times is quite complicated. I'm trying a method with windows 8 build 9200 installed on an external SSD. What version of Nivida driver do you use for installation? I was quite successful with version 376.33. The latest version is unsuccessful.

@Ken-Zu

That's odd, I use the latest windows 10 update, with the latest nVidia drivers. Also, in device manager, I disabled the iSight camera, but that did not make any difference for me - although there are people who reported that it was useful for them.

Edit: I use my method on an everyday basis, and that +10 minutes just worth my time, I used to uninstall the drivers with DDU, when I finish gaming and would turn my laptop off. So basically every fresh boot means windows - hotplug - driver install, mac - egpu.sh script in normal, then in -a mode, then boot back to windows, and hotplug it just when the spinning wheel starts. Success every time, and that extra time just worth it knowing it is going to work 100%, instead of playing with the different timing methods and getting p*ssed and angry all the time 😀
