I don't fully understand the impact of uninstalling the default AMD drivers. I am soon going to be setting up a Mantiz Venus with a 2017 15" "Large Memory" Macbook Pro. Is it still recommended for me to uninstall them?

It appears that I am unable to find PCIe Controller x16 – 1901 in Device Manager to disable to dGPU. I have a 13-inch MacBook Pro 2017 with no top Touch Bar. . I just got it yesterday fresh from the Apple Store.

Did I do something wrong? Help please!

I could be mistaken, but I thought that disabling the PCIe Controller 1901 only applied to the 15", as that is the bridge to the dedicated graphics card, which the 13" model does not have. You may want to disable the connections to other devices, like the iSight camera or right-side Thunderbolt ports.

The Radeon Pro dGPU may cause conflicts when there's an AMD RX eGPU. DDU is also useful in disabling Windows automatic GPU driver installation.

Hi there! SO I am succesfully running an egpu and driving my intel graphics at the same time. But I just ran into an issue. I unplugged one of my thunderbolt 3 hubs on accident one day and now my internal macbook pro display sticks on the windows logo. My system recognizes the display is there but I cant display anything on it. Anyway to fix this?

@caleb_rasak does this happen when you have eGPU attached and connected to an external monitor? You can force shut down a couple of times for Windows to go into Recovery mode and see if that helps.

Man am I unlucky.

So I was on the rEFInd boot screen, but I wanted to go take a shower so I leave the computer on and leave. I come back and now I have a really annoying Windows 10 logo flickering on my screen. I turn off the eGPU but it still flickers, and it flickers on my OSX side, so now I have a windows logo flickering on both Windows and OSX. My eGPU has been working like a charm before this.

It's the windows logo when you boot up Windows 10 and the little circle loads, you know, the screen before the login part.

Please help my suffering.
