[APP] NVIDIA eGPU support for High Sierra (NVIDIAEGPUSupport)
Thanks! It works like a charm....
I forgot to boot without egpu connected after installing NVIDIAEGPUSupport and keep getting black screen.
Once I connect egpu after booting up, I was able to log off and log back on.
Great work guys.
I was able to use the kext to get my Aorus Gaming Box 1070 to work with my 2017 13-inch MBP nTB. I had to unplug my Aorus power cable for a few seconds in order for the hot plugging to work. That seems to be SOP for that device whether it's macOS or bootcamp every so often.
Hi every body,
Config : Powerbookpro late 2016 with Radeon 560 - High Sierra 10;13 (17A405)
EGPU Akitio Node (latest thunderbolt driver)
Nvidia 1080 TI
screen HP elite display E231 (1920x1200)
On clean install high Sierra :
Latest driver from Nvidia 318.104.22.168.15.121
1 - starting with egpu connected and sip enable w/out kext : freez at startup with garbage on retina and black on ext.
2 - starting without egpu connected and sip enable w/out kext, and connecting egpu at login screen : getting every thing recognized but black screen on ext. Mouse showing on the ext screen but no image!
I will try now with sip disable!!
Hi every body,
Try with the V2 version, after a completely clean install of High Sierra 10.13.1
Getting the same result!! Whatever way of starting or plugging the egpu, garbage on the MacBook Pro screen and black screen on the secondary monitor!!
So neither of the solutions are working!!
Hi all, I am posting for an unsuccessful case. I cannot get eGPU working on the device below by following the instruction using v1.
Some have problems waking the system up after putting it to sleep.
I cant even make it go to sleep. It simply does not respond to the sleep command other then turning off the screen. Any ideas on this?
10.13 on Mac mini 2012 with thunder 3 and 1070.
I have a MBP 2016 late 15 inch with Sonnet EGFX box with 1080 TI.
I find that after installing the script, if I turn on the GPU before boot, then it will get stuck on garbage screen at some point.
The only workaround that works for me is to boot all the way, login, turn on the egpu box, then log out and log back in
But this works with 1 eGPU. The moment I try to turn on the 2nd eGPU, the system freezes and shuts down.
Just wanted to add my thanks--what an amazing forum!
I installed the latest nVidia drivers on a clean 10.13.1 install, set
csrutil enable --without kext in recovery mode, ran the v2 installer and rebooted, then logged in, hot plugged and logged out. Fingers crossed, but everything has been working perfectly so far!
I'm using the Akitio Node with the latest firmware update in the lower-right port, as this is the only port that reliably works in Windows 10 Boot Camp for me.
Just booted up with my eGPU plugged in by mistake and I dont even have to log out/on for it to be recognised... if I unplug it causes a system crash though.

I have never had my egpu unplugged when booting.
I have my only monitor connected to the 1070 and a hdmi-blind plug in the Mac mini and screen mirroring enabled. The Mac mini have FileVault enabled.
When I cold boot my screen is black, so I wait for perhaps 10-15 seconds. Then I press left arrow to choose my user on the non visible login screen and then Return. Type my password and Return.
The backlight on my keyboard and mouse goes out for a second and then lights up again. I know get the start up bar and the system logs me in.
Works like a charm.
