nMP - Akitio Node - Bootcamp Help...
Used Rastafabi's eGPU enabler in macOS, and it all works great. I did have a bit of a trouble with a game, but I plugged both monitors to the egpu and now works correctly.
I've been searching for a way to use the eGPU in Bootcamp, but have not found an implementation on a nMP. The guides I've usually seen are for MacBooks or iMacs where the dGPU is disabled and the iGPU is used during the installation process, but this computer only has dGPUs, so I'm proceeding with caution.
- The Node doesn't even appear in Device Manager in Windows; I tried the disabling/enabling of PCIe nodes but was unsuccessful in getting the system to recognize the connection.
If anyone has any suggestions as to what I can try, please let me know.

Thank you for the report. Though there was no reason the Mac Pro wouldn't work this is the first report it actually does! (with my installer)

Thanks to the community for helping getting me going again.
@Rastafabi, no problem; Thank you for making that application, you've made it pretty easy to use!
@ anyone: if the new firmware (I'm assuming it's EFI / Boot ROM Version) is the problem, is it possible to "downgrade" to a compatible firmware or would it create problems down the line for macOS.
Hi @mac.extension, Apple blocks eGPU in Bootcamp for the nMP since late last year. The newer firmwares completely ignore the Thunderbolt eGPU enclosure.
How about 10.13?

Just wondering if you ever resolved your problem as I'm in a similar situation and can't get my trash can Mac Pro to boot into Windows via BootCamp.
