[Solved] automate-eGPU EFI - eGPU boot manager for macOS and Windows
@olecsp-ragde, I don’t think so because the whole point of having the EFI boot through an external drive is to not mess with the “original” system. Meaning you can remove the external drive and your system will be intact as if you never made any modifications to it for a GPU at all. Someone correct me if I’m wrong.
@scensory, I think you got me wrong. I don't want to eliminate bootable USB drive, i just want to skip process after you click on usb drive ( pressing Q and choosing Windows ). Idea is : You start your MAC holding option key and you have inserted Automate-eGPU EFI USB drive. Then Boot startup windows appears with choices to boot Windows, MAC or USB drive. You press USB drive and windows boots.
@itsage Is it under "Boot" dict? For example:...<key>DefaultLoader</key><string>boot.efi</string><key>MacOSVolumeUUID</key><string>your unique Macintosh HD UUID here</string><key>DefaultVolume</key><string>Preboot</string>...
I was lost until I saw this. Thank you@
Who put a stop payment on my reality check
I'm stuck to the OS selecting screen.
When I Load mac os it's works.
But when I Load Windows nothing happen (egpu plugged or unplugged)
My config :
Can someone can guide me please...
I saw this on MacWorld before I found this thread, so I followed the instructions there, which included the advice to open terminal and execute
Now execute the following commands in Terminal:
sudo pmset -a gpuswitch 2
sudo pmset -a gpuswitch 0
now, on my MacBook Pro Retina late 2013, running the latest version of Mojave, the processor has a full load on all cores and fans are spinning on full speed - whether I am using an eGPU or just booting the normal way from the main SSD.
Since the only thing, that changed for good are the two terminal commands, I want to revert this back to the original state - how do I do that?
Btw.: I really do not understand the TWO lines. Either, I change a value to “2” or to “0”, but not first to “2” and the immediately after that to “0” - or am I completely not understanding the concept?
I am completely new to the world of eGPU and I recently bought a Razer Core X and Sapphire RX580 Pulse to accompany my 2012 15" Retina MBP. For the most part, it has been working well. I had struggled to get it working on Windows, but I figured it out thanks to nando4's guide. However, testsigning prevents games with EasyAntiCheat to run, and I need to figure out a new way to override the DSDT without using the Clover method, as nando4's guide says that it could brick my MBP. The post references using automate-eGPU to load it instead, but I can't find instructions on how to do that anywhere. If anyone could help me out with this, I would greatly appreciate it.
@goalque, I'm a bit confused with what you've mentioned in your Feb. 2020 update, is it like the automate egpu efi is not going to work at all once updated to macOS Catalina? Or I get it wrong...
