@itsage did you face this issue? https://github.com/mayankk2308/purge-wrangler/issues/27

I have not experienced boot hang with the nMP unless the eGPU was connected to Thunderbolt ports other than 5 or 6.

@oliverb could you test latest version of the script on High Sierra with NVIDIA? Does clamshell mode work for you (TB3 Mac only)?

@mac_editor,
finally I could test the new script.
nVidia worked very well and AMD looks good, too.

Thank you!

You are welcome. Clamshell mode works very well, too, but I tested it only with an AMD card.

I like to download the nvidia web drivers and install it manually.

It's great to have this page for the "PurgeWrangler for Advanced Users & Developers" document.
An explanation on the page above about the hexadecimal binary values would be good.
How did you find this value and why did you change it for this other value (patch_binary "${extension_to_patch}" "AB02EF" "BB02EF").
This explanation makes it easy for developers to look at future binary files available from Apple.
Like, these binary files you have to pay attention to and these hexadecimal values you need to look for.

Clamshell mode for AMD GPUs was always functional. The new addition is clamshell for NVIDIA. 

@nsgr

Will update the document at next release.

Hello, I have a razer core V1 and rx590 installed on the MacBook, which is not good. After reading your article, I found that these problems can be repaired. What are the specific steps to repair

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Just run the script as described on GitHub, and choose Setup eGPU.

@mac_editor if I want to reset PRAM and SMC, should I uninstall purge-wranlger and purge-nvda first?

I know I have been annoying you in another thread, however I have decided to give purge wrangler a try, however, after I reached the point where it installed AMD legacy drivers, detected the Hawaii/R9 that is in my enclosure, when it reboots, it goes back to the internal Intel HD 4000 graphics. The system does not see my enclosure, or my GPU card. 
Now, I should point out this is not the Vega 56 I have coming, and I am on high Sierra, on a late 2012 Mac mini , however it DID work before, with the automate thumb drive, and not now. 

As you know, the entire reason I am going to purge-wrangler , is to be able to boot with the eGPU active, instead of having to keep one monitor plugged into the Mac Mini . I also did a diagnostic, and all it sees is the Intel Graphics 4000. I looked for hiccups, and all it gave me was Intel HD 4000. 

SIP is disabled. Is there anything I am doing wrong? 

I'm sorry, I forgot to subscribe to the topic, and thought editing this might enable that.
