@hyperus, it works fine with AMD GPUs. I have a AMD Vega 64 and have had no issues.

Hi - Running a mid 2012 MBP (A1278).  Acquired a Sonnet GFX Breakaway running an RX560.   Using the EFI program on a usb.  opens in boot mode fine.  Doesn't say egpu is detected.  I read that isn't a problem.  However, software get stuck in this boot menu and won't proceed to next prompt.  What am I missing? 

Thanks in advance

With the latest macOS 10.15.6 I haven't been able to get the EFI to boot macOS either, I get the same problem where it freezes after selecting it in the boot menu. It should still boot windows fine if you need it, but I would boot macOS without the EFI and use purge-wrangler instead to apply the patches in macOS.

Likewise, I'm unable to boot into MacOS via automate-egpu EFI but Windows is fine. I just use purge-wrangler on MacOS with my 2012 Macbook Pro and use a SD card for the automate-egpu  instead of a usb stick to boot into windows so that I free up a usb port.
