There’s this option though: Windows 10 Enterprise 2019 LTSC currently version 1809 that should have support till 2024.

 

edit: amended end of support as per https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/search/18165

After upgrading to the latest Catalina beta and Windows 10 (1909?) I am suddenly getting Error 12 again, after having no issues for several months.

Disabling the usual stuff in Device Manager doesn't resolve the issue. Re-installed Windows 10 and that didn't solve it. I am now in the process of downloading the older Windows 10 Build 1809 with my fingers crossed...

I have now tried almost everything and I give up for now to get my 2016 nTB MacBook Pro to run with my Core X / RX580 setup again. I have been through a LOT of windows installs etc. and actually got it working a short while on 1803. But then I plugged in my external HDD and everything crashed leading to a never ending reboot loop.

It seems to be connected to what other mentions about plugging in other things in the ports. I can install everything as usual using timed hotplug etc. but that gives me error 12. Disabling the FaceTime camera does not fix that as it used to do. Then I tried the DSDT override method which actually solved the error 12 but then crashed or froze the system randomly. 

Often I would end in a situation where the screen turned blank right before the login screen. Removing either the TB3 cable OR the USB drive would get the loading screen back and then send me to a BSOD.

Another thing I have noticed is that sleep/wake is completely broken when I use bootcamp. I simply can't wake the computer if it goes to sleep. If the screen turns off it will only wake if I close the lid and open it again. This was on clean installs too. So I suspect that something has gotten a lot worse since I updated MacOS as I never had those problems a year ago when I first set up the system.

Well, an excuse for a new computer then 🙂

See here, this may help 😉

Unfortunately, this doesn't help. Since it's stuck on Error 12, it never gets far enough in the process to actually install the AMD drivers (since I've done multiple re-installs now). It failed with both Windows 10 1809 and 1903.

Using Macbook Pro 15'' 2019 with 555X and Core X + Vega 64, Installing Drivers on Windows 1903 cannot work with error 12, but switching to 1803 will solve the problem and everyting works fine.

But I wanna use new windows features in 1909, I wonder is there still a issue of error 12 for vega64 in 1909? Is there any successful build?

You may need to RDP in from another computer in order to install the drivers but you will need to allow RDP in the first instance. This should be the first thing you do once Windows in first installed as it then prevents you from being ‘locked out’.

Remote in, instead of juggling my HDMI between the Mac and eGPU? I believe it's still going to Error 12 but I will re-install again and try setting up my AnyDesk headless for remote, that way I can reboot without anything plugged in and hopefully get all the allocation needed for my graphics card. I may also roll back even further to another 18XX build (other than 1809).

RDP gives you an easy way if you get a black screen, that’s all really.
1809 will be end of support in May 2020. I would not want to go back further than that.

1809 definitely works for myself and many others.

hi all,

Just want to share my experience. I have a stable eGPU setup running for a while,  Razer Stealth 13 (early 2019) on Windows 10 1909 (18.363.535), Razer Core X Chroma and XFX RX580. I also use the eGPU with my Macbook Pro 13 2018 on Mojave 10.14.6 without any problem.

Recently I got Sapphire 5700 XT Nitro+, it doesn't' work (error 12), that's how I got to this thread. 

Seems like a Polaris based AMD card works fine, Navi based still have a problem. I am back to the RX580 for now until this thing settles down.
My old Nvidia 970 never had a problem as well.
