doesn't seem to allow me to boot with the eGPU as I just get a black screen on 11.2.3

@martin_eastwood, Which Thunderbolt port are you connecting the eGPU to your 6,1?

@martin_eastwood, While the eGPU can work with any of the 6 Thunderbolt ports in the 2013 Mac Pro, only port #5 and #6 (bottom row) allows macOS booting with an eGPU connected.

@martin_eastwood, The 6,1 is an odd case. It has something to do with the firmware and how monitor output port 5 & 6 are shared with HDMI port. Make sure you disconnect the eGPU when running macOS system updates. Reconnect the eGPU only after you're successful with the update. I learned it the hard way and corrupted the firmware on mine a while back.
