[Solved] eGPU error 12 fail after update to Windows 10 1903 or newer (OS Build 18362.329 or newer) inc downgrade pci.sys version solution
This has got to be fixed soon, right? This is not just an issue with Boot Camp/Macs ... my NUC has the exact same issue (Razer Core X, Radeon VII). I know a lot of us have contacted Microsoft/AMD ... has anyone heard anything back yet on potential fixes in the pipeline? Even latest insider builds still have the issue.
@wickedporter AMD Xconnect team is aware of this issue. Last I heard from them in mid November, they are working with Microsoft to resolve it. There's no estimate on when they'll have a fix unfortunately.
Ok, well after much swearing, its working, and running XPlane with everything on Max is actually enjoyable!
What i did was download an older version of W10, installed, DDU the install 5500 driver, installed the VII driver from bootcampdrivers.com and it sort of worked. For some reason bluetooth went south, so rebooted a few times, and 5500 driver reappeared. So, thought id try just right clicking on it and disabling it, rebooted again and hey presto VII working with no errors, both monitors working, LG 38 inch 3840x1600 res. Turned off Macbook screen and that seems to help, but its working, and flawlessly, no weirdness, no twitching!
Thanks for the pointers guys and happy eGPUing
I'm running a 2019 early advanced Razer Blade 15" with a Razer Chroma and a Radeon VII installed. I know that the 1909 and everything broke the egpu support in windows, but I came here and read the instructions, installed 1903 fresh and still am getting the error 12 errors. Is it worth going all the way back to 1809 to give it a shot?
I'm at my wits end lol. I just bought this card to replace my 2080 because i want to hot swap between my razer machine and my macbook and I was unable to get the RTX 2080 working on the macbook (cause of apple and nvidias issues) so I figured this would be an alright mix. I really just want to be able to swap between the two options.
**Edit: My RTX 2080 worked on 1909+ in full, it worked flawlessly as far as I could tell. I'm just trying to get the best of both worlds with one card, and the apple/nvidia issue is less likely to get resolved than this issue (i hope)

I've gotten my Razer to work on 1809, had to go back over a year to get the functionality. I don't know why 1903 .295 didn't work, but until i went back to an even earlier build it refused to work, always with the error 12.
