@kubo_yashiharu everything seems to look ok. What happens when you plug in the eGPU? Please add your config. to your signature.

My mbp was down last night, cannot boot into mac os
After I reset NVRAM, I can now log in and found the SIP is enabled again.

So I create a High Sierra USB boot drive,
disable SIP in the installation mode and reboot.

The SIP is now disabled
and I 1st ran the purge-nvda script then reboot - 4 language error.

I have to reset the NVRAM again in order to log back to MacOS and hence the SIP is enabled ...

I don't know if It's related to the latest MacOS update ....

@kubo_yashiharu You can disable SIP in Recovery Boot, no need to create an installer. purge-nvda documentation mentions exactly what to do if boot gets stuck.

Anyway, first try the eGPU without purge-nvda and any external display connected to it (just purge-wrangler). Are you able to see the eGPU in Activity Monitor > CMD + 4 and the eGPU icon?

Refer to my build guides (in my signature) for relevant builds.

my MacBook Pro mid-2014 got no recovery partition.

All 3 recovery mode, including single-user, have no csrutil command, that's the reason I use an installer.

Last time I tried results in a black external screen which keep saying not yet patched by purge-nvda
I will try again.

purge-wrangler: 1 Y > black external screen
purge-nvda: 1

everything works again

thank you

1) May i know what does "legacy AMD gpu"? (Rx580 is one of them?)

Hi, how exactly did you get yours working again? I've been having kernel panics since updating to the newest mac OS.
