I made this for my own use but others might find it useful. Basically it’s Clover with apple_set_os.efi feature included so you can boot directly into windows with the error 12 fix + iGPU enabled. Follow Mikeal’s guide along with the attached Clover build. The included config.plist is set to boot automatically (no delay/GUI) a partition named “EFI” (Windows’ default name). What I did is just place the dsdt.aml file into Windows’ EFI partition on my external HDD so it boots directly. I’ve submitted a pull-request to clover so hopefully this will make it into the mainline.

@yifanlu, good work with the intergration.

I wanted to alert you about a detractor in using apple_set_os.efi. We’ve had several reports  that booting via apple_set_os.efi results in a lowered CUDA-Z/AIDA64 host-to-device result in Windows. See report at https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/how-to-keep-mbps-irisiris-pro-activated-when-booting-into-windows-boot-camp/paged/6/#post-22513

Any workarounds that you can suggest or look out for?

Interesting, I didn’t know about the reduced performance. If I have to guess I would say this doesn’t solve that problem as it runs the same code as apple_set_os.efi. The only thing this does is hide the boot menu so you can select your windows EFI partition and boot directly into windows quickly. I don’t have an internal bootcamp setup so I can’t test hot plugging.

Someones making a splash… ;-D

I’ve had issues when booting using apple_set_os.efi – Windows didn’t recognise my 5K display last time I tried it, not sure if it makes a difference, but I created an EFI folder on an external which I use for storage alone.
