  1. Do this to fix the error 12: iv. Enable VGA Output on the PCIe bridge hosting the Macbook TB3 controller using rEFIt or rEFInd as explained at
  2. reminder: automate-eGPU.sh discussion only Folks, just a reminder. This thread is for automate-eGPU.sh discussion. If you have a generic Apple hardware question pls post in an existing or new thread at https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/forum/114-apple-egpu-discussion/
  3. See @Arquebusa answer, quoted below. GTX1050's oldest driver is 375.63. We know NVidia drivers return error 43 on drivers newer than 372.70. You may try to do a INF patch, adding GTX1050 support to 372.70?
  4. Switch your eGPU to Gen1 for stability. If you need more pls reply email to the instructions you've been given provided requesting assistance. Anybody else affected with BSOD on startup requested to do the same.
  5. 1. The STATUS window will list say "[email protected] 10de:[email protected] (NVidia)" to indicate detecting your eGPU on a mPCIe/EC port. The boldfaced letter indicates if the port is running at Gen1, Gen2 (2nd gen i-core+) or even Gen3 speed (6th gen i-core+) 2. Work through getting your eGPU detected: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/10811-mpcieec-egpu-troubleshooting-steps/ 3. If you have only a dGPU that's wired to run your internal LCD, then yes, trying to disable it will cause a hang. The dGPU can be disabled if it's secondary in a switchable graphics environment with the iGPU as the primary. 4. Set Chainloader->mode=MBR, then chainloader->Test Run. 5. The "dsdt=off" status window item isn't complete so does nothing. To do a DSDT override, pls work through https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/5874-guide-dsdt-override-to-fix-error-12/
  6. There are other reasons for error 43. A telltale sign of incorrect initialization is if GPU-Z doesn't report clock info for the GTX1050Ti. See error 43 troubleshooting at https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/10811-mpcieec-egpu-troubleshooting-steps/
  7. The window drag method works with NVIDIA or AMD. @LukeHero has a method where an external lcd isn't needed. Instead, he creates a pseudo external lcd with a hdmi-vga adapter, windowed app started on pseudo monitor driven by the egpu and management software used to move it to the internal lcd. https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/8088-2012-15-mbpr-gt650m-gtx97010gbps-tb1-akitio-thunder2-win10-lukehero/ It's something to keep in mind if can't get NVIDIA Optimus working.
  8. When hotplugging, your psu has to already be on for the egpu to be detected. Refer to following to set your psu to be permanently on.
  9. Error 12 fix I've added another item which may be the key to fixing error 12 on these 2016 MBPs https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/10718-2016-macbook-pros-and-egpus/&do=findComment&comment=152894
  10. https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/kb/310123#bookmark-39
  11. What does "switched to work" mean? error 43 can be due to newer driver versions: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/10516-error-43-with-nvidia-37290-and-newer-drivers-use-37270/
  12. It would help if you click on the eGPU and check the error number. If it's error 12 then can work through https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/10718-2016-macbook-pros-and-egpus/&do=findComment&comment=152894
  13. The E6420 IFR file with UEFI variables is linked at https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/6438-guide-dell-e6530-cpu-tdpmulti-unlocking/
  14. Windows is mucking with the BCD entries. To restore back to the text mode bootmenu, run the following at an admin command prompt: bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy
  15. FIX: Win10 error 12 against the eGPU i. Go to Device Manager -> View Devices By Connection. Find your eGPU then disable the PCIe bridges above it one at a time like shown below including the (in this case) Root port #5. . Then re-enable them. The idea is to force reallocation by Windows. This worked on a Zbook 15/17 G2. A variation of this is to uninstall the top level PCI Bridge/Port so as to have Windows re-pnp the system upon reboot. ii. Someone with the same error 12 issue reported a Windows reinstall helped fix the issue, though removing the top-level PCI bridge in (i) should be pretty much the same thing. LINK iii. Finally, some Macbooks owners have been reporting that a DSDT override fixes their error 12: https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/5874-guide-dsdt-override-to-fix-error-12/ . Do (i) again after doing this if still error see 12. iv. Enable VGA Output on the PCIe bridge hosting the Macbook TB3 controller using rEFIt or rEFInd as explained at https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/1843-2012-15-rmbp-gt650m-gtx560ti8gbps-tb1-th05-win81-shelltoe/
