Mac Pro 6,1(nMP or late 2013) + EVGA GTX 980 TI + AKiTiO Box 2 no kext loaded
I am on macOS 10.12.6 (16G29) and I can't see my GPU in System Information
This is immediately after mac boot:
log show --last 3m | grep NVDA 2017-11-04 20:58:57.151649+0200 0x30c Default 0x0 0 kernel: (IOPCIFamily) Driver "NVDAStartupWeb" needs "IOPCITunnelCompatible" key in plist 2017-11-04 20:58:57.177327+0200 0x49a Default 0x0 0 kernel: (IOPCIFamily) Driver "NVDAStartupWeb" needs "IOPCITunnelCompatible" key in plist
My AKiTio is detected good
I ran the script as specified in the instructions by insert to terminal this:
Script install web drivers then add record to IOPCITunnelCompatible and finally tells me All succesfully done. But kext is not loading...
Maybe I missed something?.. Any ideas?
I've already done something here)
Here is a list of actions to be followed, that it would work:
0. Connect any display to your eGPU
1. Reboot in Recovery mode (cmd+R)
2. Disable SIP ("csrutil disable" in Terminal)
3. Reboot in normal mode, hot plug eGPU, open Terminal, copy and paste this:
cd ~/Desktop && curl -o automate-eGPU.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/goalque/automate-eGPU/master/automate-eGPU.sh && chmod +x automate-eGPU.sh && sudo ./automate-eGPU.sh
4. Shutdown (not reboot)
5. Unplug eGPU and Start your mac
6. Hot plug eGPU and rerun script
cd ~/Desktop && sudo ./automate-eGPU.sh
8. Try to start with eGPU plugged in(Display must be connected to your card). If you hear start chime, you are succesfully done )
If not, do the following:
If you did not hear the startup sound press and hold power button until mac turn off. Wait 2 second and press power button again.
Repeat this until you will hear startup chime.
In my case, every time I connect eGPU to play a game, I have 2-3 attempts.
This is not an ideal way, but it looks like there is no other way yet.
There are some another way here:
