Win10 Creators update discussion
For me, it slaughtered my bootcamp 🙁 Installed the creators update, but first removed all my nVidia drivers, just to have a clean install for them. Whenever I want to hotplug my egpu, and install the drivers for it, win10 just bluescreens out, no matter what - tried both tb ports, multiple (10-ish) times, but still, BSOD. So had to wipe out my bootcamp partition, and try to find a 14393 build windows now.
I was wondering, if anyone experienced same issues, or is it just me? (2015 13" retina macbook pro)
With eGPU we must always wait before update the OS etc because eGPU is still not welcome from Windows and macOS ... for now 🙂
Also I always made a Windows BackUP with WinClone before I update the Windows!
I don't have time now to test the new Windows 10 Creators Update ....

Same issue here. I've tried several times of reinstalling the creator update and eventually wiped the entire MacBook and reinstalled sierra 12.4 and windows 10 Anniversary version.
I believe we should switch on the "delay system upgrade" in windows, and also Microsoft has announced Mac users not update creator update currently until a new Boot camp has released.
Apple's support about Creators update:
I've tried updating anniversary to creator update but unfortunately the eGPU would never be identified after finishing the update. Maybe there's is still a wait for Apple to update the bios for MacBooks.
Creator's Update enables Fast Startup mode by default. I had to turn it off while in safemode for eGPU and my Macbook to be happy.
- Click Control Panel.
- Click Power Options.
- Click Choose what the power buttons do.
- Click Change settings that are currently unavailable.
- Scroll down to Shutdown settings and uncheck Turn on fast startup.
- Click Save changes.
I installed the Creators Update and can confirm that the steps above solve the problem. No need to use safe mode on my side however...
Quick note that the Creator's Update also sometimes rolls back drivers (example - uses default Windows-suggested AMD drivers) instead of using the installed latest drivers. Best to uninstall these latest drivers, update, and reinstall.
