Hi All,

I've got all this hooked up at the moment but I can't quite seem to get it running.

I ran the automate-eGPU.sh script as per a guide I found and it correctly detected my GPU and installed the driver, however when I rebooted after the driver was installed, the graphics card isn't being detected by the system (although there is an nVidia logo in the tray at the top).

Here's what system info shows: 

Can someone point me in the right direction to what I need to do in order to get this working? I can't seem to find a specific guide for my hardware combo in the implementations forum. My final endgame is to get this working in High Sierra since that way I can dock my laptop with only 1 cable (using my OWC thunderbolt dock) & Windows as well.. but one thing at a time.

High Sierra has no native support for NVidia eGPUs. Please refer to this stickied thread for more details:

I see.

Is it possible to get it working via BootCamp + Windows 10?

Yes, your system has several Win10 eGPU implementations. Please look at the menus to help you along:

nando4, would it be worth downgrading from High Sierra to just Sierra? I need to dock my MBP with my desk at work and if I'm forced to use windows then it removes the biggest benefit I bought this thing for.
