Hi everyone,
I just received my enclosure and graphics card.  I have tried to connect the accelerator to MacBook without graphic card and install Realtek LAN driver, the OMEN Accelerator app, and the OMEN GA1-10 Accelerator firmware update. All of these successed. Then I installed the graphic cards in and connected to MacBook again after the windows booted. Then Windows just crashed. The screen is in blue and white. And the speakers have some wield sound. Am I missing some steps?  Anyone can help will be appreciated.

i tried to connect the accelerator to macbook when Windows is booting up, and it worked. GTX 1060 is detected and i installed the latest driver. Now I can play PUBG on macbook:). 
However, there are many small problems after that. 
1.the speaker doesn't have any sound. I tried to disable the some nvidia audio drivers and it worked.
2.ethenet port on the accelerator is detected as CD-ROM in device manager.
3.if i connect the mouse and keyboard through accelerator, i will experience high latency when i am gaming.(not internet latancy, mouse/keyboard latency).
4. if macbook enters sleep mode, it cannot be awakened.
5.if i unplug the accelerator when Windows is running, macbook does not crash but cannot be shut down.
I know apple_set_os.efi will solve the problem that Windows cannot be booted when the accelerator is plugged in. I am wondering if this can help with hot unplug when OS is running.

As for 3., that seems to be an Intel chipset issue, so far the only surefire way to consistently work around latency is to use a dedicated hub for latency-sensitive input devices.

"intel chipset issue" do u mean the problem comes from macbook itself instead of from omen accelerator?
i found a driver from hp support website which is called Intel Thunderbolt Controller Driver, sp80671.exe, and has the type called "Driver-Chipset". Do we need to install this driver to solve this problem?
