2014 15" MacBook Pro (GT750M) [4th,4C,H] + GTX 1070 @ 16Gbps-TB2>TB3 (AORUS Gaming Box) + macOS 10.13.6 [mac_editor]
Few things to keep in mind:
- Booting with the NVIDIA eGPU plugged in blocks POST and results in black screen. Delay plugging in (see below).
- Hot-plugging eGPU may not work as expected without logging out and then logging in.
- If the above suggestion for hot-plugging is followed, the internal display may be disabled.
- If you choose not to use purge-nvda.sh, then NVIDIA eGPU will only provide Metal acceleration (no OpenCL/GL).
Currently Im using my Macbook Pro Retina 2012 15-inch with dedicated 650m only in clamshell mode. Its always closed and attached to an LG curved monitor. Is it possible to activate the egpu without seeing the internal screen, when Im restarting the Macbook?

Anomaly Detection will check your system to find
potential hiccups based on the applied system patches.
Discrete GPU: NVIDIA
Problem Black screens on monitors connected to eGPU.
Resolution Apply patches using purge-nvda.sh.
@rmihai Please add you system info. to your signature. What OS are you using? Where have you connected the external display - to the eGPU or the Mac directly? Retry steps again.
@rmihai Thank you for that. I am guessing the PurgeNVDA patches did not apply. This is mentioned in the documentation (the setting behaves very oddly). I would suggest retrying. If it still doesn't work, retry in single user mode.
@mac_editor will this work if booting from external usb disk?
Macbook pro mid2014 with 750m+node pro+apple tb3->2+apple tb2 cable+monitor connected with hdmi(node pro->monitor)
I boot from Samsung T1 with 10.13.6 (17G65).Installed wrangler which installed Nvidia web drivers (no cuda) and option 2.
Node pro recognised but not my 1070ti.External monitor not present.
I work with a MacBook Pro Late 2013 + Geforce 750M + macOS 10.14.2.
As described for other users, I selected "purge-wrangler.sh" option "1" and then connected the eGPU. However, this is not shown under "About my Mac". Only under graphics cards as external eGPU and under Thunderbolt.
I have selected the eGPU as my preferred graphics card.
