eGPU + bootcamp after Catalina update

Since I installed the new Catalina update, I can not use my Raze Core X on Windows 10 anymore.
The graphics card I have is an ASUS Strix RX580 and my computer is a Macbook Pro 2017 without touch bar.
I have been using razer core for two years now and have never had a problem before.
To boot on Windows 10 (version 1903), I use the apple_set_os.efi and refind 0.11.4.

I first used an external SSD with windows 10 except that after Catalina update, what happened was that my screen was just black after the logo windows and the fans stopped turning. I could not do anything and I even tried to do it without my external screen which did not help.

So I proceeded to a complete re-installation of windows 10 this time on the internal hard drive of my mac with always the same version of windows 10, so I tried to install the latest AMD drivers to then restart. Unfortunately, the driver did not work, the gpu's fans were not running and I could just use windows 10 without the eGPU.

if at the beginning, the eGPU is detected, after a restart (with AMD drivers installed), it becomes undetectable.

But fortunately, on Mac, everything works great.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Try automate-eGPU EFI instead of rEFInd, it works well for Windows 10 but not macOS 10.15. But your device is AMD so it doesn't need to use EFI for macOS.


I'm just finished making my XG Station 2 with RX 580 works with Catalina and Win10 1903.
