Boot up / Restart Issue

Hi.  First time posting.

Running Akitio Node Titan case with Vega64 card via TB3 but I do have to connect it via Apple TB3 to TB2 converter running into 2013 MacPro 12 core.

I was finally able to get it to work thanks to a script provided on but when I try to restart / start the computer with EGPU connected and powered on, Mac won't boot up.  I then turn it off, power off the eGPU, then Mac Pro powers up and I turn on the eGPU after the Mac OS is booted up.  Is there a way to fix this? is this a known issue?  Thank you in advance.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

You cannot just start the GPU the way you mention?

I would do it anyway like that to relieve some stress.
