Has anyone managed to get a Thunderbolt 3 dock working in combination with an eGPU under Windows 10?

My Sonnet eGPU + Vega 56 work fine with my 2017 MBP15 thanks to the advice here but I can't get rid of error 12 when my Elgato Thunderbolt 3 dock is also connected at boot.

I've tried daisy chaining and connecting on various separate ports, the only method that works is hot-plugging the dock after boot. Everything is fine under MacOS or when the same peripherals are connected directly.

Lenovo Thinkpad TB3 dock works perfectly with Akitio node under Windows 10 with my Razor Blade Stealth 13". Prior using Lenovo dock , I  tried Caldigit dock, but without success...

That might work if you mean to shop around for a different laptop because docks all basically do the same thing : They all have a Thunderbolt controller with up to four controllers connected to it (USB, Ethernet, SATA, FireWire, ...). The problem is probably a combination of drivers of Windows and firmware of the MacBook Pro.
