I had follow the step and run the purge wrangler script(6.2.2) to setup the egpu. At the first my macbook able to detect the Akitio ,but not for rx580. And I keep unplug and replug, and finally the chip sign(graphic card option on top) appeared ,but it keep restart non stop after 3 second my macbook detect the graphic card. It shows a message something like" Your Macbook restart because of problem..." in different language. It shows me Panic Medic Boot message.

Symptoms indicate faulty GPU. Suggest replacing.
