Turns out I needed to manually update the driver. Downloaded the drivers and saved them on the desktop. Went to devices, and under the displays there was a 1080 ti and I clicked the properties. Then, update driver and locate manually and point to the driver.

Hi @nando4, why are you not adding your DIY eGPU setup as another strategy? Thanks

The title of the thread is 2016 MBPs. eGPU Setup 1.35 is only an error 12 solution to older MBPs running MBR/BIOS Windows. The full list of compatible MBPs is shown at https://egpu.io/egpu-setup-13x/

Ugh, had everything working perfectly and then I got greedy trying to cut the USB out of my boot process. Here's the mistake I made:

- setup refind, works great

-booted into Windows + EGPU without egpu connected on accident. Now when I boot into Windows 10, it starts and hangs after 2 loops. Is there a way to revert this script? I've tried booting into it via EFI and the same thing happens. Literally one complete swirl and lock. But I know it gets further because with my iPhone plugged in, it shows the prompt on the iPhone about sharing photos. So it's clearly doing something. 

Will I have to re-install bootcamp? :////

How long did you let it try to boot?

I figured it out after further testing. Windows tries to boot with the internal graphics card as hidden  and that's why it fails. So the script still requires you to run the integrated.bat on the Windows side otherwise it doesn't work.

Now when I run integrated.bat, I can see the card as hidden and doesn't let me enable or disable, so the laptop screen stays stuck on Windows logo while the external monitor shows windows fïne powered by the 1080ti... thoughts to how I could fix this?

 

device manager says the 1080ti has error code 45. I've tried to disconnect and reconnect. No dice.
