Kryptonite: TB1/2 Mac eGPU Support with FileVault, SIP, and ART Enabled
@mac_editor, Keep up the great work .. Much appreciated .. Also I just tested Windows 11 on a bootable drive through vmware fusion and basically the same issues with getting the egpu to play nicely with windows 10 same problems all over again like with macOS catalina stability ..
@nicholas, your issues are not related this thread. Please create a separate topic.
I have an issue creating FAT32 on my internal APFS SSD. That is the one I use to boot into the OS too. I guess the only option would be USB dongle?
@netcho, what’s the issue?
@netcho, add a partition, not APFS volume. Click on container disk and add partition from there.
@netcho, you were doing it wrong the first time (volume != partition). This is a different issue - your APFS container minimum size = total disk size. Hence you cannot add a new partition. You can try this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8501670
If that doesn't work, then yes you'll need a external drive.
Bad kernel panic on boot. Deleted the partition for Kryptonite and still got the panic. Reset Nvram and still got panic. Somehow after many panics I got to my external recovery which also gave panics in the beginning. Hopefully reinstalling the OS on top will fix this panic issue so I can go back to the old and trusted Purge Wrangler.
no idea what went wrong. I plugged the arguments for AMD under NVRAM, did the SIP on, blessed kriptonite, was able to see kriptonite volume and selected macOS which produced the panic restarts.
***Update: I was able to reinstall the OS on top of my current panic OS and after 30 min all was good. Back to purge wangler until we figure out what went wrong.
Here is step by step what I did:
1. Made FAT32 partition with Disk utility. Made the size of it 100MB.
2. Copied the unzipped EFI folder under the new drive.
3. Edited with Text Edit the config file and under NVRAM section edited like this:
