Hi, I'm building a new eGPU setup with the Mantiz Saturn Pro and one GTX 1080 ti, for my MacPro (Late 2013) running 10.13.6.

I have tryed almost all scripts possible but the macOS-eGPU.sh --beta seems to be the right way for my setup since the normal version sends me an error.

Your system hasn't yet been approved. The system may be unbootable or unstable.

Interrupt...

   cleaning system                                                        [done]

The script has failed.

Nothing has been changed.

Altough, I tried everything I could but my system still can't see my eGPU. 

The system report doesn't show anything connected in the Thunderbolt busses nor any other GPU in the Graphics section.

 

Please could someone support me with the issue or point me to the right direction?

The Mantiz Saturn Pro should have a TI83 chipset, therefore it should be fine.

If you disconnect everything and just connect the enclosure: Does it show up in the system's information page under thunderbolt. If not, you may have a faulty cable/enclosure/chip. Try to change the port or the cable if possible. There you should at least see the connection regardless of whether the GPU gets recognised or not.

@fr34k Thanks for your follow up. Will try after restoring on my backup since everything crashed after installing Enable eGPU, it wouldn't boot anyhow.

Would you advise to roll back to OSX 10.13.4 or 5 after restoring? 

 

Thanks

@oliblanchette

that should not be necessary. 10.13.6 is perfectly fine (and also gets security updates)

@fr34k, Thanks I finally managed to make it work after updating to the latest High Sierra security update and by changing the TB port for bus 1 (top left port)

Can't describe how satisfying it is Smile Altough I still don't see the Nvidia card in the system information Overview..
