External SSD won’t mount after successful eGPU setup

so I got my eGPU working in windows tonight, config is 2016 MBP 15 RP 455 HQ6820, akitio mode Pro, gtx 1080.

i can no longer get my external SSD to mount in Windows. The adapter works fine, tested it with a keyboard with no problems. 

SSD mounts just fine in MacOS both with a direct connection to the desktop, and via the adapter in MacOS on the MBP

Ive tried all available ports, including the thunderbolt pass through on the node Pro.

Not sure if its related, but my Thunderbolt Display no longer works via passthrough or any direct ports either. Kinda at a loss because I was counting on an external to install games to.  

Anyone have an idea for a fix?
