@tsakal Uninstalling from the script should be sufficient to undo/remove any changes from the script. I don't provide the option to remove the script itself because in case the system doesn't boot, the user has an option to recover. If you want to remove even the script, the backups, etc., I responded to someone few posts back in this thread with how to do that.

You say internal GPU is not working - how are you testing this? Please run a benchmark and show results. This script does not affect internal GPUs.

Hey man I'm using a MacBook 2018 with Razer Core X and the RTX 2080, I followed the steps and got the icon of the Nvidia drives, however it doesn't recognise my card and my external monitor doesn't respond to the eGPU, any thoughts on what I could do? I know the RTX series just came out but any pointers would be greatly appreciated

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

@saluck Web drivers don't support RTX at this time.

@arveen As far as I know, macOS natively supports the WX9100 GPU (reference: Apple), don't know about W9100 FirePro. Please state your config. in your signature. For non-TB3 Mac, option #1 of the script should enable the GPU. Any driver-related problem (such as Display showing in Graphics/Displays) is unrelated to the patch itself.

Try enabling legacy AMD GPU support (asked in Option #1) and testing.

2014 MBP 15" /w Iris Pro + Aorus Gaming Box GTX1070

I downloaded purge-wrangler. The MacOS setup is reaaaaally easy. Just install and run the script by following all the steps, reboot, plug in the headless adapter (or external monitor) to eGPU box, plug the box into the mac, logout, login, everything works like a charm!

Not totally sure it's related but:
After installing purge-wrangler on MacOS, I can plug in an external monitor to the box, the box to the mac and boot into bootcamp. Immediately the external monitor starts showing images as soon as the windows login screen appears.

Thank you! @mac_editor

@lqd It may have had trouble connecting to the internet/github. No biggie, just go to the first post on this thread and run that long command.
