Hi everyone,

I got my Vega 64 to work properly with a Bootcamp / Windows 10 set-up on my 2017 MBP 15", with an external monitor. My only (large) caveat is that I'm unable to use any peripherals - about 30 seconds after I plug in a mouse or keyboard, the computer freezes and requires a restart. Surprisingly, Bluetooth still works, so I'm assuming this is USB/power related. I've tried both a Logitech and Razer mouse, both of which cause the issue.

I'm plugging the EGPU thunderbolt in the left side of the computer on its own, and attempt to plug my mice/keyboard on the right side.

Tips? Is there a USB controller that I need to install/uninstall/disable in device manager? I see these by default, but aren't sure if they're at the root of the issue:

1. Apple USB Composite Device
2. Intel(R) USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0 (Microsoft)
3. USB Root Hub (USB 3.0)
