I have a functional boot camp setup with egpu, but would like to move the win boot camp partition to an external drive (Samsung t5).

Has anyone successfully done this? I have runned windows from an external drive in the past and that worked great, but I haven’t tried it with egpu.

Prepare windows with wintogo and then boot. Then complete setup and set up egpu. one or the other runs smoothly. you just have to try it.
