@mklegend: I remember now. You upgraded the macOS which brings a new firmware, resolving the error code 12. Upgrade can also rewrite your EFI volume, and therefore the rEFInd vanished. However, installing the kext should not have any influence on Windows, unless there are some changed nvram values. Thanks for your observations! Smile

Is there something here that might solve the black screen problem?

You can try this (didn't work for me but we've established my problem was unique):

Use only the latest:

Do not use NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext with them!

First of all, I just want to say my thanks to @yifanlu for the great work that you are doing. I was using eGPU on Sierra 10.2.x for a while until today. I would like to share my experience to this thread that hopefully can help others. Below is my spec:

MacBook Pro 15 Mid-2017 TouchBar Radeon Pro 560

Aorus Gaming Box with Nvidia GTX 1070

I have an Acer XB241H plugged into the DisplayPort and a LG LED screen plugged into the HDMI of the eGPU. Both are 1080p display.

I simply followed the instruction on first post to install.

I have SIP disabled completely

My start-up process is: first, not have eGPU plugged in. Starts up Mac until log in screen. Plugs in the eGPU and type my password to login. All of my screens display perfectly fine without any issue.

Additional info that might help others: I previously came from Sierra 10.12.x with just automated-eGPU.sh from @Goalque applied.

Thanks for this - it helped get mine working.  When booting with the eGPU on, I was able to boot up and see the external screen, but after about 20 secs it tried to switch to dual screens (with the iMac) and then they both went black and the computer froze. Waiting until the login screen to plug it in seems to work.

This is something we've not seen before, on macOS Sierra, right? I can also confirm that hot-plugging the TB3 cable at the login screen stage works with 2016 13" MBP (non-touch), wait for ~5 seconds & press any key, the reference GTX 980 blinks a green light, and you have the eGPU screen output.

It didn't work for me. Although I have my Dell 2560x1440 in black but I can see the cursor...

Still no luck. Hopefully soon ;).

If I can help, just let me know. Cheers.

No. Problem in drivers from Nvidia.

I used downgrade to MacOS 10.3 ... and now it works.
