Hello,

 

My brother has a 15" MacBook Pro 2017 with a Razer Core v2 and an Nvidia GTX 1080 FE. When I ran it on my 2019 Macbook Pro 15" on Build 1903 it worked flawlessly, but when I installed it on his computer nothing worked. So many issues from blue screens to black screens - nothing worked. How can I get the set up to work on his laptop? 

 

Thank you!

Windows 10 1903 may have an issue with 2017 MacBook Pro. I had a non-resolved boot-loop when I ran Win10 1903 on my 2017 13" MBP. Try 1809 version to see if it works better. This Boot Camp setup guide should definitely work for it.

Oh okay, with the 1809 though would I have to do a bunch of extra stuff in the guide or plug it in and Windows will auto install like how my 2019 MacBook was?
