so it did install all necessary components but still nothing? What do you mean by "Locks up the system" -> all black?
you might try the newest driver set

fr34k's macOS-eGPU.sh on GitHub or on eGPU.io

I did let the nVidia drivers update to 35.106, to no avail.
Yes, both screens are blank, and the dump begins like this:

Yes. Should it be off?

no
wow. That's new. Until now most reported that it continues to work. Maybe none used a MBP with TB3...
- is a fresh install possible for you, to test if something might be wrong?

I removed the patches on 13.4 with the --uninstall command, updated to 13.5, then ran the .2a script. It worked with no errors. Unfortunately, I don't have time to wipe the system and try again. I'm heading for Berlin in a few hours. I'll work on it again when I get home in a week.

Firstly thanks for all the time and effort. I used the script on 10.13.5, MBP Retina Late 2013. It's a fresh OS install, says eGPU not connected but I see it in Thunderbolt section on About page. I have an Aorus Gaming Box 1070. I have attached an Imgur screenshot cause I am really stupid and can't figure how to attach a screenshot.

Before upgrading to 10.13.5, I had 10.12.6 installed and tried to use automate-egpu script and it displayed a similar message that Thunderbolt device is connect but eGPU not connected.

Screenshot (Imgur)

I wonder if the issue is with the Aorus Gaming Box 1070 device. How should I approach debugging the issue?
I have an external screen connected to the HDMI port on eGPU. I had the system running perfectly fine on 10.13.3 and bootcamp Windows 10 but after both OS upgrades it stopped working on both MacOS and bootcamp.

@s4nket Sometimes the Aorus Box doesn't power up at all. Disconnect all cables and leave it for 10 minutes. Then be ready with the script, plug in the components, and try. Might work (did for me) thanks to @itsage's suggestion.

I am on 10.13.4 and have just run the script successfully. The egpu (Aorus 1070 gamingbox) is detected, but at soon as I connect my hdmi to my monitor, the Mac screen goes red and nothing happening on the external monitor. I can see the mouse cursor though. Is this a known bug? I have tried both hot plugging workarounds mentioned on GitHub, but with no success.

used Nvidia's control panel to upgrade to the latest (35.106), on 10.13.5 - all seems stable on my 2013 NMP - booting 2 monitors on NVIDIA.
Only problem is monitors don't go to sleep...will finally look into that today.

thanks!!!
