I've installed this script and it works, nvidia egpu is being recognized, but it is not the default egpu. Running a mid 2012 mbp with egfx Breakaway box. Here's an image to show you @fr34k. Cut off serial # for privacy concerns.

Yeah, I fixed it by reinstalling os-x, nothing else helped. 
Luckily all my files were intact, Thanks for replying anyway 😀

Just wanted to say thanks to fr34k, goalque and all the other smart folks who got us to this point in time. I have been running a Sonnet Echo Express Pro TB1 egpu with my Mac mini for a few years now, and I can say that we have come so so far to be where we are now. This latest script makes things easier than ever and is a far cry from the full manual setup that we used to have to do back in the early days to get this working with OSX. It literally took me days of searching and reading to get it to work back in the day, and now the script does it all. Amazing.

Thanks for all your hard work guys - truly great work!

Could you post the steps you took to make it work? I'm using tb1 as well

You have to convert the display connected to the eGPU your primary display. System Preferences --> Screens --> Alignment (I don't know if this is the right translation, sorry I don't have macOS in English), and move the little white bar on the top of one of them to your external monitor.
Hope it helps.

I don't have an external monitor. I'm only working with the internal display. I just need some script that switches from the igpu (intel hd graphics) to the egpu (Nvidia gtx 1060). I'm going to try to use it on my current legacy windows installation. If I remove the display drivers using ddu, hotplug the egpu and install the nvidia drivers. If there is any script, could you please reply on this post linking it?

So I did a complete fresh install of high Sierra as I had been having some issues with my Adobe software... It's a bit of a hassle, but I have done it so many times now.

After the fresh install I just followed the instructions from fr34k's first post and the script did everything else.

I did find that since I was doing a fresh install on a clean SSD without many apps installed that the script did not automatically install Cuda (the script checks for apps that require Cuda and only installs it if you have apps that need it) so I had to install the Adobe creative suite before running the script again, but that was the most challenging thing I had to do. Everything just worked. 

Now I just gotta figure out how to add extra supplementary power to my Echo Express Pro so I can run a more powerful gpu in there!

This has happened to me. May be a kernel panic gone wrong

Any idea if 10.13.5 is going to break all of your hard work to date?

Thanks!
