I think the guide needs to be restructured, especially for 2017+ Macs. First step should always be to try the eGPU without any hacks, because usually for the 2017-18 Macs (exception: AMD on 2018 15" MBP needs bootcampdrivers.com drivers), that is enough, and if it doesn't work, it doesn't do much harm.

I followed the instructions but I am stuck when I plug in the eGPU and reboot. It will just won't start up. If I plug in the eGPU when it is in the rEFInd, the screen just freezes. How can I solve this? Thanks.

All of the links in the steps don't do anything. It says to "download file and copy into system" or whatever but I don't know what that means. It's like saying to disable SIP but doesn't say how to do that.

Every guide links to another guide that links to another guide. Why can't we just put it all in one place and keep it simple? It's confusing the way it is. If you're going to reference a post just put it in the guide because now you have to filter through half of another one to try and piece together what someone is trying to say.

Would have to agree. Things are getting confusing. I’m almost tempted to write a beginners guide to the basics because I feel there is a level of assumed knowledge that many don’t have. Only prob is I prob don’t have the knowledge to write said guide. 

Anyone whos ever dabbled in hackintoshes must have come across Corpnewt, the way he wrote was a breath of fresh air to someone like myself.

@flyingtexan Fair criticism. In general, the problem is multifaceted, with other problems such as guide discovery, new solutions popping up with their own guides, and more. In my opinion, the approach of having "guides" gets old real fast in the ever-changing and fast-paced tech. sphere. A clearly better approach could be something like a website where the user chooses his/her machine (easy for Mac-side, but difficult for general Windows), then selects their eGPU enclosure, then selects a GPU, and then the website spits out what the user needs to get things going. Such an approach eliminates the overhead of checking what's applicable and what isn't, at least. Finally, we need people willing to openly contribute to build these new approaches, and who have the spare time to do so.

When I run the integrated.bat as administrator, the exe file it downloaded, the cmd just flashes so quickly I can't see what's happened. Does that mean it has worked?

I'm sorry I've been a little confused. So we disable the PCI 8x because it gives the error 12 but if we have a 2017 15" MacBook pro we don't need to do this and can put the egpu on the left side to use the 8 lanes?
