Good evening guys / girls, they are new to the blog and I honestly do not understand much about the subject. I have a box with the GTX 1050ti and I could make it work in my Macbook Pro 2016 and Sierra system 10.12.6. The problem I have is that my Macbook asks me to upgrade to the High Sierra version. Can someone tell me if the eGPU is already running in High Sierra?
Thank you very much to all.

Do you have to use an external display for this to work? I followed the steps on Mac 10.12.6, everything looks good except I don't have a "ghost display", is that just because you are using an actual external display? I only have the built-in display (2015 MacBook Pro 15" with discreet AMD GPU).

I can see my eGPU but it is not being used. What should I do?

EDIT: nvm, i miss the part about headless display, so that's an actual plug.

I know this thread is old but I'd appreciate if anyone can help.
I have a Late 2013 MBP, no dGPU, Aorus Gaming Box 1070, TB3->TB2 and OS 10.12.6 (16G29). I did a fresh install, disabled SIP and ran the script with eGPU connected. I get the error message "Thunderbolt device is connected, but no external GPUs detected". The fan is running and I can see the device in System Report -> Thunderbolt but not in Graphics/Displays. I tried GhostDisplay HDMI (Spectacle and DisableMonitor), ghost display connected to Mac, connected to eGPU,  even tried with connection to TV. Same message for all cases.

Cant get it to be detected on fresh Windows 10 bootcamp install (only Iris Pro in Device Manager). I tried all the tricks mentioned by people with similar build, to not install bootcamp drivers, remove drivers using DDU, partially installing Broadcom/Trackpad only drivers but cant get it detected on Windows Bootcamp. Also did power cycle reset for Aorus Gaming Box many times.

A little back story, I bought the eGPU in Dec 2017, it worked fine on 10.13.3 for months (Windows BootCamp Internal Display) and then eventually after update to 10.13.4 everything broke. Spent days trying to get the script working on 10.13.4 (all the scripts available on this site) and then eventually thought of downgrading OS to use a more stable Sierra and automate-eGpu script but that isn't working either.

Please help.

Hello,
I've been trying all day to make my eGPU work.

I'm running Macbook Pro 13 late 2011, OSx 10.9.5 Mavericks

Akitio Thunder 2 with Gigabyte GV-R577UD-1GD graphic card.
It uses the AMD Radeon HD 5770 chipset

Running the Script it detects the eGPU:
Detected eGPU

Juniper XT [Radeon HD 5770]

But then in the end says "Accelerator not found"

Can anyone please help me out, on what I can do so solve this?
What does it mean "Accelerator not found" after eGPU being detected?

thank you so much

Help!
I’ve ordered to do my setup with the Sonnet eGFX Breakaway 650 and the XFX Radeon RX 580
However; I received the wrong graphics card!  Instead Amazon sent me the AMD Radeon 5600 XT
And this is what I’m getting after trying to install:

Does this mean there are no drivers for this card? Is there a way to make this card work? Should I upgrade to macOS High Sierra? or should I just tell AMAZON to send me the right card, even tho this card costs more! I would greatly appreciate if anyone shares any information!
Thanks!

Hi guys,

I have just tried to use my old R9 270X with the MBP 13" 2018.

I followed the step above, everything went fine, it was hard to get it right though.

However, when I try to disconnect the eGPU by any means, the system crashed reboot. But still connect to eGPU normally.

I have tried to click to disconnect properly, unplugged immediately, and turn the GPU power off. All of them result in Mac OS crash.

I am on Catalina, with SIP turn on except kext. Any further clues? 

Crash log: pastebin

Hello guys, 

Have an Akitio Thunder2 + Sapphire RX570 8GB ITX setup.

I tried using Purge-Wrangler script, eGPU was detected fine, but it wouldn't work at all.

I'm now trying to install automate-eGPU but I can't seem to get it to detect the eGPU, here's what I get when I run the script:

Screenshot 2020 06 18 at 15.38.57

 It's hanging on "Rebuilding Caches". 

Any idea how to fix it? Thanks a lot!
