Late 2013 MP + Razer Core X + Radeon RX5700XT failed purge-wrangler attempt. THANK YOU in advance for any help and guidance
As soon as I hit set up eGPU and plugged in the eGPU it recognized the Radeon 5700XT and then immediately all the screens lost input....everything went black. I am usually a guy who just figures things out but feel over my head. Any help would be appreciated.
I would also add that when I start the computer with with the eGPU off and then turn it on, I do see the eGPU icon pop up in the menu bar. Then everything goes black. So while thinking about it,if I do see the icon purge-wrangler worked? That said, once I plug in the eGPU all monitors lose input, but computer is still running.
So this is evolving. I just started again and when I plugged in the eGPU and before all monitors lost input I checked the icon and it said NO EGPU.
So ran it again and did not let it auto detect. I answered the questions and it now works. I am having some issues on boot. Trying to figure that out now.
@raptor046, Known issue with Navi + TB2 mac. If you read through the beginner's guide:
F2The script cannot automatically apply patches if the eGPU enclosure you are using is marked unsupported by macOS. In this scenario, the Ti82 patch will be automatically applied, but you will have to provide more information about the GPU vendor. Patching will proceed as normal after. For detailed information, see the FAQ. In another scenario, it may be possible that script auto-detection may cause a crash. This is an issue with Navi GPUs currently (#44). Just set up the eGPU without connecting it to the Mac. Once patching completes and system is rebooted, the eGPU should work as expected.
Plug in eGPU only to bottom two ports to resolve boot issues. Problem is specific to 2013 Mac Pro.
