I just updated Mac mini 2018 with Vega 64 eGPU and got a black screen.  Restarted with a keyboard shortcut to the same problem.  I have shut it down for now.  Any ideas are appreciated?  Cheers.

I've had issues with the recent 10.14.5 betas and  the final release with certain usb storage devices preventing my MacBook pro from completing the boot process.  I would disconnect any unneeded peripherals and see if you can get to the desktop.

@ningauble77 Interestingly, the issue I am facing with these betas and release is that my left-farther port doesn't work with any disks/ethernet if I eject something and re-plug it (shutdown never completes as well in this state). Not sure if hardware related (hardware test says all good), and it works fine in Windows. Quite an annoyance. Needs a force-shutdown to fix.

After a little testing, narrowed it down to an external disk in the process of APFS encryption being ejected from that port.

Thank you for the tips.   I am running an OWC 14 port thunderbolt 3 hub with two external Samsung T5 SSD‘s and a WebCam.  I will try removing these one at a time.  I feel like I am beta testing for apple with the full version.

Hi everyone. I have a problem with 10.14.5 too. I can’t watch any movies in my ITunes library. The video signal is coming out all scrambled pink and green glitches. Only ITunes videos are doing this and it began with this 10.14.5 Mojave update that included Airplay. Does anyone here with Radeon 56 or 64 have the same problem?

 I will test this for you when I can get to the desktop.  I wonder if I can roll back somehow to 10.14.4

I can watch iTunes movies after a successful boot with Vega 64 eGPU on 10.14.5.

Removing the attached dock does not fix the issue.  I was able to use a keyboard shortcut to put the Mac to sleep and then when I hit return the login screen appears and I am able to login fine.  A reboot gives me a black screen.  10.14.5 has problems in this setup.

I can only get to the desktop on 10.14.5  if I use keyboard shortcuts to put the Mac and then the monitor to sleep.   This works intermittently.   I can’t believe that they broke the EGPU functionality on a Mac mini in the software update.

Have you tried turning off the monitor then turning it back on?  My Macbook Pro+Radeon VII+10.14.5 setup only detects my external display if I turn off then turn the monitor back on during or after os load.  Closing the lid and opening it again also works which may be like your sleep/wake.

Yes, the screen stays black. Thanks.
