Computer: Mac Pro Desktop (Cylinder) with 12-core Xeon, 64GB Ram, internal AMD FirePro D700 Dual, 1 TB SSD.
eGPU: eVGA Nvidio 980 TI, AkiTio Thunder 2, 300W power supply, riser, etc.
Running latest El Capitan and installed Windows 10 via Bootcamp prior. Works perfectly in Mac/El Capitan. Windows 10 giving Code 12 for the 980 TI.
Purchased @Tech Inferno Fan Setup1.3 (Sorry to hear about the accident Nando4 ). Instructions clearly say needs partition to be MBR/BIOS and I have GPT/UEFI. Also says set BIOS to CSM/Legacy. Decided might be a good opportunity to clean house, so instead of mucking with things I backed up all my data, wiped the drive and did a clean install of El Capitan. During the install it asked me what type of partition. I tried to select MBR, but it told me it could not install El Capitan on an MBR partition, so I'm stuck at GPT again.
Can El Capitan install on an MBR partition on a Mac?
I'm not familiar with any way to get into Mac BIOS to change mode to CSM/Legacy - is that possible?
If El Capitan and Windows 10 will both work, what's the best method to convert partition?
Is there a more preferred way to install Windows 10 for dual boot vs using Boot Camp?
Should I be using an earlier version of either OS to make this work, or have both been tested with Setup 1.3?
Thank you for reading! I have a shiny new Vive just sitting here collecting dust, and a powerful PC with underpowered video. Sad day.
