Just finished reinstalling mac os (I am still on 10.5.3 public beta 1) and it does seem to fix the black screen issue (four successful shut down/restart with egpu attached & connected to the monitor with DisplayPort, no HDMI plugging in the mini). Thanks for the tips! 

If you are talking about the apple logo + boot progress bar on startup, unfortunately they are still not around at this moment. Though this time there's no weird color lines or distortion, the screen remains black and apple logo flashes for a second before the login screen shows up.

That is an improvement. When 10.15.3 is stable I will make sure I upgrade with eGPU disconnected to see at least the apple logo

Please consider that also security update my corrupt your eGPU and should be installed without it

What do you mean with your last sentence? I have lost my eGPU on MacOS on 10.15.1 but before I updated to 10.15.2, which changed nothing. A reinstallation of 10.15.2 improved nothing. The card (Nitro+ RX 5700 XT) does not even power up inside the Breakaway Box (it does on Bootcamp so I know it is not the card). 

If I have corrupted the eGPU what can I do?

Am not sure there was another security update which would be another culprit

the egpu is fine is osx that gets messed up

did you reinstall with the egpu disconnected?

Bump. Is 10.15.3 faster now? Does it fix Mac mini black screen with eGPU?

I somehow missed the suggestion to unplug the eGPU when doing the update- oops.

I had hopes during the update process, as after one reboot, the install progress moved to the eGPU/DP from HDMI, so I unplugged the HDMI cable after logging in at the end of the update process. Unfortunately, restarting left me at a black screen again, so I had to get the HDMI cable back out.

If even reinstalling macOS doesn't show the boot logo, I'm not sure if it's worthwhile, as I'm not sure if this will let me see the Option boot screen, so I'll probably just keep the HDMI cable plugged in until someone else can confirm that the Option boot screen shows up properly.
