  1. With the same model MacBook as we re discussing? What graphics card are you using Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk My question was for you. "Quote" apparently failed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. This is what I'm doing. The setup works great with a 760, but didn't want to boot with a 1070, so Im building a desktop to put the 1070 in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Again id like to add: I updated Windows to the latest update "Anniversary update" and it ruined everything. If you have this model MacBook I'd recommend waiting for updated boot camp drivers and Nvidia's drivers. My USB ports stopped functioning, trackpad barely worked and some apps wouldn't load correctly. I'm currently reinstalling Windows 10 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. On 2015 rMBP 13" with iris 6100 It pretty much made everything stop functioning correctly, trackpad / mouse/ USB ports, eGPU.... Now Re installing Windows 10 :-/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I would like to add.. I have gotten it to boot yet a third time... I plug in the 1070 (akitio tb2) just as the boot selection screen appears... I'd like to point out that when you plug in the card, the fans twitch, then about 4 seconds later they spin up.. So I timed it this way 1. Have eGPU turned on 2. Plug it in the moment you see the boot menu appearing (a second or two after you notice the display power on 3. Count to 3 (1 second before the fans spin up on the card) and plug in the card - at this exact moment you'll need to hit enter on the Windows entry to boot. This has worked for me 3 times now. Side note- I went to services and disabled Nvidia's streaming services, there are two entries in there I believe one was Called "NvStrSrvc" the other one is the entry right below it. Sorry I'm not home to check them ATM, just read what they are when you do this (if you do this) - not sure if it helped but when checking boot logs before, this service is where booting froze and went to endless spinning dots Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 2 hrs of rebooting with and without egpu and disabling NVStrSrvc and some boot logging and I finally got it to boot again... Needless to say I'm leaving the laptop on all weekend Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Edit* it finally booted after plugging in the egpu right as the boot selection menu appeared, counted to 3 in my head and selected Windows There has to be a way to make this more reliable for this model MBPr .. Where is a computer God when you need one? Somebody please provide us with some hope Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I am noticing a lower success rate in my booting method... I will look into this tomorrow and see if i can increase this Lol. I haven't gotten it to boot a second time... Keep getting endless spinning dots at boot. After enough fiddling I'm sure it will boot again but being this much trouble- I think I'll just build a desktop computer to put the card in once Kaby lake CPUs get released Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I got the Evga 1070ftw to work on win 10 with my 2015 MBPr 13", after a couple unsuccessful boots after installing drivers it decided to work. Played bf4 at retina resolution on ultra with 8xaa at a decent 70-130 fps. Done for the night. Hopefully it will boot again tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. 2015 MBPr 13" with iris6100... I'm attempting this now with an EVGA 1070 FTW ... Will post results tomorrow * fingers crossed Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I hooked up a 1070 to my 2015 MBPr (iris6100) earlier today, it recognized it, installed drivers, then went into endless boot (win8.1) reinstalling with win10 now to see what I can do. 9 & 10 series cards don't seem to work well with this model MacBook Pro, 6 & 7 series cards worked flawlessly, but only on Windows 8.1, they use the legacy driver built in to all latest releases drivers and I believe that has something to do with it. Newer cards don't use legacy, and don't seem to work well as egpu Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I think you'll be okay if you are going to use an external monitor, I'm using internal. Try it...see what results you get, a few have managed to get it booting but usually takes a lot of trial and error, and even after figuring it out it's rarely successful. The 6 & 7 series cards that I'm using use the legacy driver built in to the nvidia drivers which I think has something to do with why they work consistently with eGPU & Optimus. The newer cards seem to be the problem unless you have a Thunderbolt 3 port Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. This is exactly why I'm returning my 970. So many failed boot attempts it drove me nuts, whereas my GTX660 and my GTX 760 worked every time. Actually out of probably 100 bootups, the 760 only caused it to hang once, I'm going to miss the performance of the 970 but it's just not worth the headache. I don't know why the old cards work better... Maybe something to do with them being supported only by the Legacy portion of the driver (I think) I don't really know. I'm literally at frys right now returning this GTX970
  13. So. After two weeks playing with an EVGA GTX970 SSC, I've decided to give up and take it back, and will continue to use my old EVGA GTX 760. Why?... The 760 works 99.9% of the time (Windows 8.1) with no fiddling around, no special boot process, no hot plug+ restart. I just plug in the cable, turn on the computer and play. The 970, when it works- is awesome, but I was only able to get it to boot 4 times, by wasting a lot of time, trying to boot, rebooting, deleting drivers, installing drivers and it was just a headache. I spent two weeks trying to figure out how to get a stable, reliable boot process but it's just not happening. Windows 8.1 failed as much as Win10 when trying to boot, whereas the 760 boots into 8.1 every time.. This was done on a 2015 rMBP 13" with iris 6100 iGPU. It's somewhat disappointing, but I guess I'll get a 1070 when they're available, and if booting then is still unreliable I'll just build a desktop Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. This is good info.. I was just just switching the psu on/off myself. I'll look into this though Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. mrburns05

    MBPr + eGPU & Windows 10?

    ...and there we go. Windows 10 is working with 361.75 + GTX970 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
