@mac_editor In reference to your post dated Nov 3, 2018 @ 4:59 pm regarding the Automate eGPU EFI 1.0.5 Installer, this is to report the USB created from your automated script is "working flawlessly" with my eGPU configuration.  I have experienced no issues whatsoever running my eGPU on macOS Mojave 10.14.2 to this date.  I am yet to try running on Windows.  Many thanks for the awesome script enabling the automated EFI boot disk creation.  Kind regards.

@mac_editor Quick question in regards SIP.  Is the automate-eGPU EFI 1.0.5 meant to work with SIP disabled only ?  From my experience, all is working fine with SIP disabled but would like to run with the default OS setting of SIP enabled.  However, every time I re-enable SIP and even tough my eGPU works perfectly, I then have issues after shutting down the nMP and rebooting...  Kind  of awkward but can you help explain ?

Boot issues when SIP enabled after running eGPU, disconnecting eGPU via menu icon (if it becomes available) and powering off:

    1. Usually get black screens on boot
    2. Sometimes get to the boot loader eGPU menu, sometimes do not
    3. When I get the boot loader menu, I can select macOS and then either goes in a loop or get a panic kext report on the next successful boot (this is without the USB stick installed).  However and sometimes, it will actually boot into macOS where the eGPU would then work correctly.

@slhdsnet I recommend keeping SIP disabled whenever the goal is system modifications (regardless of methodology). IIRC automate-eGPU EFI auto-disables SIP when used, so ideally it would work in any SIP configuration (and thus enabling SIP doesn't matter, since it gets disabled). All the issues you list are new to me as I haven't enabled SIP in a very long time (haha). A variety of factors could be at play here after you manually enable SIP (modified OS boot, eficheck fails, etc.) and I don't really have the technical understanding of everything to be able to point fingers at something specific.

@montenegroexperte  I cannot confirm on behalf of other's setup configuration but in my case, I upgraded to 10.14.3 (18D42) and then crossed my fingers... and voila, everything is working flawlessly !!  I am using the USB EFI loader.  No issues whatsoever.   😉

Sounds good. Did you remove the stick for the update or did you make it with the stick active?

@montenegroexperte  Yes, I did remove the stick and disconnected the TB cable from the eGPU.  After the update, installed the USB stick, reconnected and booted.  All good from there.  Cheers.
