Any official news on when Microsoft is going to fix what seems to be a widespread error 12 on eGPU's with their newest update?
Does anyone here know if Microsoft is aware of this issue, and how quickly they might be able to resolve it? Also, I have a new install of windows and have been unable to downgrade it to 18362.295 as has been suggested, maybe I'm doing it incorrectly? Thanks.
What version does "winver" say you have?
What items show in the Uninstall Windows Updates list?
In order to downgrade, you'll have to install the .295 update package first. Then you uninstall any windows update that isn't .295.
How is that done? I've tried downloading the .295 update from the microsoft catalogue, but whenever I try and run it, it just says this update is not applicable to your computer. My Macbook is currently on 17763.379, 1809.
This is what I did a little while ago. - https://egpu.io/forums/pc-setup/egpu-fail-after-update-to-windows-19-03/paged/3/#post-66080
I’m using 1903. I listed the correct package in there. Its been a little while but there should be a page that allows you to download the .msi for the windows update. It will run, you reboot, then uninstall anything update, not security patch, that isn’t the one you just updated.
1809 isn't as eGPU friendly as 1903 up to version 295... Since my bootcamp instance is my fun instance (I don't have it built), I can rebuild it (though some reinstalls of games is a pain in the buttocks).
I'm not sure if the May 2019 update is still the version 3 (or .3 as the case may be). You'll want a .3 install, let Windows do all its updates.... then uninstall any (or all) of the following....

Once you're all set, you'll want to ONLY install the following...a few reboots later and you should be at build 3 of 18362... you want build 295 of 18362...
- August 13, 2019—KB4512508 (OS Build 18362.295) which can be found Microsoft Update Catalog
- "2019-08 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1903 for x64-based Systems (KB4512508)"
- be careful one is for SERVER, that is not the one that will work with Bootcamp...
I hope this post was useful, it has been repeated a few times around here but never hurts to repost it.
Okay, so just to be clear; first I want to do a fresh install of the May 2019 ISO that shows up on the ISO downloader from Microsoft. Install, let it do its thing from MacOS bootcamp. Then, uninstall all the patches from windows update that you just linked. Reboot. Then, pause Windows Update, and manually download the x86 1903 .295 patch, and install it?
Thank you btw, you guys have all been lots of help.
@jackson_patenaude Yes, that sound about right. You should probably see only the latest of the patches to be uninstalled (v418). Uninstalling it should make winver report v1. Then you can install 295.
