[SCRIPT] automate-eGPU.sh v1.0.1 - macOS eGPU installation tool
@Rycco: The -a mode is helpful on Macs released Late 2014 and after, on Windows Boot Camp. It stays persistent only on OS X/macOS.
Today I continue eGPU benchmark, in this time with Resolume Arena 5.
I think DVI couse some problem. Maybe it was my DVI-HDMI adapter (looks veeery Chinese), but it slown down a lot GPU work.
I plug-in four 50' samsung TV and one projector on the eGPU graphic card, and one projector in HDMI output in my laptop. On the each output I play different video clip in 720p - in that case the fps is very low (13-15fps max).
Also I realize that system in monitor settings show 7 external monitor (though I put only 6 outputs). Cause was DVI output in eGPU graphic card. When I plug-out DVI projector FPS was much higher. (about 28-30fps) It's not perfect, but still quite nice score. When I plug 6th output i my second TB2 output fps stopped be satisfactory (20-24fps).
Also when I plug only 4 outputs on the eGPU graphic card (DVI included) fps still is very low (13-16fps).
👏your work has been wonderful ever since v.01 of this script.
The one thing that tripped me up: it wasn't clear step-by-step that I needed to disable SIP. I only found out after I couldn't get eGPU to post... so i tried -a then -m and only then it instructed me to disable SIP.
Everything else was magic though. Cheers and looking forward to your EFI app when you get closer to showing.
Thanks for reminding to disable SIP. It's the first necessary step in OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra.
Installed using the latest script
Tried to boot with eGPU connected
Freeze at Apple screen
Booted without eGPU
Ran script in -a mode
Connected eGPU and booted
No eGPU in Hardware > Graphics / Displays
Akitio is recognised in Hardware > Thunderbolt though
Am I missing something?
Edit: OS 10.12.2
Thanks @goalque - here's the output from Terminal:

Edit: I hot plugged and ran the terminal command.
Edit 2: I had a look in System Information > Software > Extensions and ran the command again and the NVDAStartupWeb had unloaded.
