I need a Mac OS Bootcamp Wizard!

Grant Vogel

Okay.  So I am a noob.  I have a Mac Pro and am trying to run a 5700 xt in bootcamp.  It doesn’t recognize the GPU on startup and I can’t figure out where to download drivers from.  When I download the latest drivers from the AMD website it says that there is no GPU hooked up.  The GPU is recognized in Mac OS.  I have confirmed that it is installed properly as well.  Currently when I look in device manager it shows “ MIcrosoft Basic Display Adapter” and when you click on that it says “This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31).”  “The driver trying to start is not the same as the driver for the POSTed display adapter.”  

 

I have seen quite a few people running this setup on YouTube but no one says anything about this being tough to do.  Please help!

Remove the Bootcamp partition in macOS via the Bootcamp assistant. Re-install Windows 10 with the 5700XT connected. Use the drivers that will be provided in the Apple Support Software.

Okay.  I can do that.  That makes some sense as I hooked up the 5700xt after creating the bootcamp partition.  Kinda crazy that every time you want to change GPU’s you have redo the bootcamp process.  Is there a way to save the partition so you don’t have to reinstall all of the files and applications again?

I removed the bootcamp drive and reinstalled it.  Unfortunately, it is showing the same error code.  Any other thoughts?

Try using DDU to remove the current drivers and install the latest ones from AMDs website. Also be sure to remove the GPU that came

with the Mac.
