I'm running 1809 too... after a disastrous flirt with 1903.

I have an old 1607 that's my GM instal that never fails to get me back up and running when I have issues.

Swapped my Vega 56 for a 5700XT last night and didn't even have to reinstall drivers, it just worked (using rEFInd - not sure why rEFInd is so overlooked especially with the latest issues).

 

Had one BSOD when launching PUBG but that tend to happen with PUBG when I switch between cards, luckily it didn't corrupt my instal this time and I was back after a reboot, getting destroyed my bloody kids...

Glad it worked!

My transition, however (1803 → 1903), didn't go well dGPU-wise. I'm using the descrete RP560 while waiting for the enclosure to be delivered and noticed some severe lags and frame drops after I changed the build. I found out it's a frequent complaint about 1903 ruining game performance. So I'm planning to switch to 1809 for now, it's still available on the microsoft site.

Edit: turns out I can't roll back without losing everything, the options about keeping my apps and settings are all grayed out.

Strange, I can't really tell as of yet if its working but in task manager it shows my 750M as working while its 0% on Vega 64..

 

 

Im not using an external monitor if that helps anyone clarify what's happening here.. do I need to disable PCI dGPU?

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.

I am planning to use my Mac Mini 2018 as a bootcamp gaming machine with an eGPU for the first time, trying to also get myself eGPU ready. I googled and found a Windows 10 1903 V1 iso that will install via bootcamp. Can you please provide any tips to make sure that it stays between 18362.295 to 30, as you were able to do to keep it eGPU friendly? I am not sure what to expect once I install this iso file. Thank you in advance for any advice.

@viciousmoth Turn off Windows Update in Services. Also create a manual restore point.

This time, Microsoft has really done bad things!
On my imac 5k 2019 I had to go back to the 1809 version.
Even formatting and installing the 1903 v1 I get to the build .30 maximum and there is no way to get the .295.
With the .30 the egpu is recognized only sometimes and the bluetooth stops working when I turn on the egpu.
For now I'll stay like this, because everything works perfectly, but it's really a shame that an update ruins an entire setup.

If you have v1 then you can download v295

@cuppino The "State of eGPU for Macs – Catalina 10.15 Update" post states:

Posted by: @itsage

The recommended Windows 10 1903 is OS Build 18362.295. Once your Mac is running this version, make sure to disable Windows Update in Services.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this means go into Task Manager (Control-Alt-Delete), Select Services, find "Windows Update" which is "wuauserv", right click and select "Stop".
