Just for fun, I was playing around with your Info.plist. I'm new to this so I have a question.

Using 0x67981002 (7970x/280x) as example, the device id is not only in the IOPCIMATCH for it's respective GPU family, in this case "AMDTahiti" but calling additional kexts in wrangler and controller 1 but device 0x67901002 (7970) is only in "AMDTahiti". In your experience, how do you know what the GPU dependancies are?

Thanks for putting effort into this utility.

Impressive utility! Thanks for your work on this! For my setup I have an MSI 7850, Akitio Node, and 2013 Early MBP 15”. I upgraded to macOS 10.13 this week and ran your utility (after disabling SIP, of course). Unfortunately, upon logging out and back in, only a black screen displays on 1 of my 3 monitors. The laptop screen is also displaying a black screen. Unplugging eGPU displays the login screen successfully. 

I ran the uninstalled for the previous script I was using (from this site) for macOS 10.12.6. 

As a test, I dropped an MSI 390 into my Node. Same black screen. I tried an Asus and powercolor 380 for fun and received the same result as well. I realize the 380 is not supported, but I’m just sharing my tests with you.

I borrowed a friends TB3 Dell and upgraded the Nodes firmware to be latest (June 2017).

Do you have any idea what I can try next? Thanks in advance!

IF your 2013-early Macbook is a Nvidia-based Macbook, there is not any support for AMD-eGPU under high sierra at current, whatever you do.

Thanks! That explains it. I was previously understanding that I could not drop an Nvidia-based card into the eGPU enclosure. I didn’t realize the dGPU (GT650M) mattered too. 

To confirm, I would encounter the same problem even if I bought an RX 480?

yes, as long as you have Nvidia-based Macbook such as gt650m or gt750m under high sierra 10.13, you have nothing to do with Nvidia-eGPU or AMD-eGPU.

Maybe here has a compromised workaround posted by mac_editor

I wondered if disabling dGPU could be a workaround. Thanks for sharing. I’ll try it and report back with the result!

Same result as before sadly. Oh well, I’ll use my DisplayLink dock for now to drive my screens and check back here periodically to see if eGPU is resurrected.

Running macOS 10.13 with AMD Radeon Pro WX7100 in a Sonnet eGFX breakaway Box fails.

"Your eGPU [0x67c41002] is not supported."

Anyway support for this card could be added?

Possibly. I can build a new installer in the next few days.
