Touchbar not working after bootcamp installation

so i was trying to install windows on my macbook pro the other day using bootcamp but after i got windows to boot and setup, I noticed that my touchbar was completely dead, it does respond to touch but no display at all. Occasionally it does flash for a second when opening the lid but other than that it’s completely blank. I doubt its a hardware issue cause all i was doing was installing windows. Ive tried resetting the SMC and the NVRAM but to no avail, ive also tried reinstalling MacOS but still blank, any help on this would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Not sure I follow you ... Windows does not offer drivers for MacBook Pro's Touch Bar so it won't be useful under it. Are you using the Mojave and the updated BootCamp?

You may want to use a VM environment or dual booting macOS and Windows as these will react differently!

Im currently using bootcamp on catalina. Basically when i installed windows, the touchbar stopped working but when i booted back into MacOS, the touchbar still remained unresponsive/blank.


Windows under Catalina with BootCamp has been having issues!

The issue appears to be a firmware/macOS upgrade which messes up 32bit code (which is still present in Windows).

You may want to back off to Mojave. Try setting up an external drive with Mojave so you can boot up under it to validate if you even can.
