2015 MBP 13" - Still experiencing the problem on .418 with DSDT injection at boot. Windows pushed out an update without my knowledge. *sigh*

 

Edit:

Confirmed that uninstalling the .418 update fixes the problem. A reboot did not help with .418 either. Tried to boot with egpu disconnected, then reconnected on reboot. Still didn't work. Going to hold out on windows updates until someone confirms that the issue is no longer present.

I tried Windows 10 1909 18363.418 on the 2018 Mac mini. I disabled as many PCIe components as possible but it was a no go. During the process, I learned that Thunderbolt 3 Port #3 and #4 [TB3 Controller #1] would always bring up the Boot Selector on the eGPU-connected monitor. Thunderbolt 3 Port #1 and #2 [TB3 Controller #0] would only bring up a black screen, there's backlight on the monitor but nothing showed up.

The booting behavior into Windows is the reverse of a Mac laptop in that the Windows logo and spinning dots gets stuck on eGPU-connected monitor due to error 12 as soon as Radeon drivers load. I had the ASUS USB-C monitor attached to a different port so the Intel iGPU was able to power it.

Greetings and salutations friends,

I've actually went through most of the guides here on egpu.io from start having nothing up to the point of many trial and errors to get to overriding DSDT but having still error 12 on my Radeon RX Vega.

<img> </img>

I began from https://egpu.io/forums/builds/2016-macbook-pro-154-tb3-gtx980tirazer-core-os-x-win10-clover-dsdt-in-memory-override/#cloverdsdt where I am using CLOVER and applying my DSDT.aml files in both patched and windows folder in the ACPI of EFI. The outcome of that was that I have now the large memory resource

However the error 12 still appears on my vega.

I've disabled the PCI Express of my Facetime Camera as well as my dGPU to try and free up some resources but to no avail.

I've tried this hotplugging but I dont think it works with my macbook, as everytime I do it, the eGPU just doesnt get recognized at all. Or maybe I'm doing it wrong but I can't tell how many times I've plugged in my eGPU whilst the Windows Logo and spinning ring appears.

I downloaded drivers using bootcampdrivers.com which I am using, but I have tried Adrenalin, Crimson from AMD website which did not work either. What I did notice was sometimes halfway during the installations was the Vega 64 in device manager had the error 12 disappeared when reinstalling drivers after a DDU removal in safe mode. But after completing the installation it of course went back to Error 12.

Does anyone have any advice or recommendations to what I can do next?

@nelson_ten What's the OS Build number of your Windows 10?

@itsage Hey, it's 18362.418, Version 1903, I didnt take into account of OS build when I embarked on this journey. Is this going to be a huge problem?

It's best to roll back to an earlier build. Win10 18362.329 and newer causes error 12 on many systems.

@itsage Thanks for the advice! However it seems I've updated to this version build directly from Windows 8.1 so I cannot roll back to a previous build I think. What would be the best way at the moment to get to the build that you've suggested?

How frustrating. I didn't have access to my eGPU for a few months and I updated Windows faithfully in that duration on my 15" Late 2016 tMBP.

I used refind to force activate iGPU and disable 1901 to use left TB3 ports and had no problems with code 12, but now even disabling both 1901 and 1905 (and using right TB3 port) doesn't get it working. I can't even rollback to .295 since it's been too long since the update of death and I would have to clean install... which I have no idea how to get it to .295.

Even enrolling in Windows Insider Program and updating to 1909.418 build hasn't gotten me anywhere.

My build includes Razer Core X + Vega64. If anyone has any workaround or solutions, I would really really appreciate some help!

I had to change my windows build (I'm getting my setup eGPU-ready now) so I just downloaded an ISO in this situation. Just googled the build number, I looked for Win10 1903 V1.

After downloading I mounted & installed it and all my apps, settings and the licence were kept intact. Don't forget to disable updates inside the installer so it installs exactly what you've downloaded. I had to do some clean ups before I could successfully upgrade though: otherwise my system was returning an error and "undoing changes made to your computer". In my situation I was upgrading from 1803 manually as Windows Update stopped working for some reason. By clean ups I meant deleting previous update cache, closing everything and most importantly disabling the internet during the whole process. And it worked.

My build number says 18362.30 now and as far as I understood it's considered eGPU friendly as well. Will submit my build when it's ready.

The 2016 15" MacBook Pro is blursed! I have the same one and it's been plenty of frustration but excitement as well. The bad news is rEFInd boot up method doesn't work anymore on these newer Windows versions. The good news is you can use a similar boot up method with automate-eGPU EFI. Here's my most recent build [2016 15" MacBook Pro + RX Vega 64 LC + Mantiz Venus] that have step-by-step instructions.
