help help help 

Hello, 

i have a late 2016 MacBook Pro 15" Radeon 450, Aorus gaming box and external monitor. 

I have tried countless guides and implementation techniques and am literally at the point of pulling my hair out. 

Please can someone help me simplify this process and help me install. 

Thankyou

Hi Daryl, read through this recently published guide to set up eGPU in Bootcamp with your 2016 15" MacBook Pro. I've used the same configuration MBP for this guide so if you follow the instructions eGPU will work.

I can't say for certain whether software updates to macOS and Windows would break eGPU. Make sure to have restore points just in case Windows fail to boot.
