So, I'm trying to do the eGPU thing. I'm running Windows 10 (freshly installed, literally 15 minutes ago, no changes whatsoever) on a 2016 MacBook Pro (15", the one with two full PCIe busses over four Thunderbolt 3 ports).
I've connected an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 over Thunderbolt 3, using the Razer Core eGPU enclosure. Unfortunately, I'm getting the dreaded “Code 12” error: “This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use.”
I've seen some advice to manually assign ‘code-12’ devices a new IRQ; but under the Device Manager, it doesn't even seem to have an IRQ number; nor does it show up with a address-mapping range under “I/O” devices.
Other things suggest downgrading the BIOS (?!); but this is a Mac. It doesn't even have a BIOS, just BIOS emulation — definitely nothing I can dive into and toggle memory-allocation settings, right?
