For me it is not working. I am stuck  after installing the fix in version 2 on OSx 10.13.1, with the latest Nvidia Webdriver.

  • In case a screen is connected the screen might turn black on startup
  • Otherwise, after entering the password at the login prompt the spinning wheel appears and nothing happens. Sometimes, this is the case even when a monitor is connected via HDMI
  • When the e-gpu is not connected at boot i.e. only connected when already fully logged in, only a generic Nvidia Chip model is identified

Hardware:

  • MacBook Pro 15 / 2017 with Touch Bar, integrated Radeon 4GB card and latest OsX: 10.13.1 
  • Akitio Node
  • Nvidia 1080 TI

Hi guys I updated to High Sierra and now keep logging into the black screen on external display. I can press left arrow, input password and log into OSX and see things on internal display, but that's it. 

 

I had previously eGPU working fine with automate-egpu script in Sierra. 

I have 2013 750M + Thunder2 + GTX1080

I tried logging in without eGPU plugged in, but when I plug it in i don't see it in profiler. Then if I log out, everything is just stuck at black screen.

 

I tried uninstalling CUDA and web drivers and reinstalling. Same effect.

 

What am I missing? 

So I did a reinstall of OSX High Sierra, repeated all the steps. Now the external monitor is on, but the internal is black (but cursor is there). How come lol?

Just came here to chime in that I have a working configuration with this motley crew.

Kernel panic on hot-disconnect but I reckon that's expected. Any luck with this lately? I'm thinking the next step would be to reverse-engineer AMDGpuWrangler, or just wait until Apple and Nvidia have sorted their stuff out.

Big thanks to yifanlu for making this work!

Just confirmed this works with setup below.

I’m not sure everything are related to this, but few notes:

  • LG UltraFine 5K: Sierra / automate-eGPU setup hadn’t worked well* with the display, but no problem so far with this.
  • Above also disabled the headless display workaround , now I’m able to use it.
  • Crash at hot-unplugging / no critical problem with hot-plugging but have to relogin for a GPU to be detected. It’s same as the Sierra setup.

* A GPU is detected but the display has no signal or corrupt resolution. Had to use an obsolete -skip-agdc option to keep the GPU detected and the display working properly. And with the option, the headless display hadn’t been detected.

Thank yifanlu and all!

I believe that there must be a way to get the sound working thru the HDMI, I think the only thing needed is the driver, if you see this: http://take.ms/PgwxV I'm pretty sure that device is related to the GPU. Wha you guys think?

Have a 2016 15' 460 working well with the aorus 1080 after using the v2 package. Have to login/plug in/log out/log in but after that its been perfect outside of no audio.

I see the same PCI device for audio. It works in windows the same as it did when I was using a usb-c to displayport adapter

Also I cannot seem to find anyway to monitor the temperature of the the external gpu, istat menus can read the usage. Again in windows I can use something like afterburner or hwmonitor and those work fine.

Really appreciate all the work thats been put into this

Anyone else facing problems with a macbook with integrated dedicated graphics card like: MacBook Pro 15 / 2017 with Touch Bar, integrated Radeon 4GB card and latest OsX: 10.13.1?

Only fot information !!!

If you have problems with sound output (ext hdmi display)

Everything was done, but the sound did not come out, and I was hindered from enjoying the game. I calmly used the 'disable' - 'enable' driver in the device manager, and the sound was output again. This process should be done at boot time, but if you do not like it, you can run the automation script at boot time by following the steps below. 
 
From the dsaul user's answer in this link:

Thanks @nando4 for the workaround for the audio issue. I made it little different that was easier for me, will add a tutorial for people like me that need things step-by-step in order to understand.

 

Audio Fix

 

1 – Install Windows 10 WDK. (From this several gigs file you only need a 80kb file called devcon.exe located on “C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Tools\x64” – After you copy the file you can uninstall WDK)

 

2 – Create 3 text files that will be saved as .bat

  • 1st – Write as bellow and save as disable_audio.bat
    @Echo off
    devcon disable *audio*
  • 2nd – Write as bellow and save as enable_audio.bat
    devcon enable *audio*
    
  • 3rd – Write as bellow and save as final.bat
    @echo off
    call "disable_audio.bat"
    call "enable_audio.bat"
    exit
    

 

3 – Copy those 4 files (devcon.exe; disable_audio.bat; enable_audio.bat; and final.bat) to the folder C:\Windows\System32

 

4 – There is a trick to run it as administrator without that pop-up warning.

  • Search for Task Scheduler. Open it, go to Action -> Create task
  • Add a name (audio_fix) and a description. Mark the box Run with highest privileges.
  • Click tab Actions, then New and add “C:\Windows\System32\final.bat” in the program field.
  • Click tab Conditions and unselect everything.
  • Go to Task Scheduler Library, see if your new file audio_fix is in there.

 

5 – Go to desktop, right-click, New->Shortcut

  • Type schtasks /run /TN “audio_fix” and create.

 

6 – Search for Run, type shell:startup and click OK.

 

7 – Copy the new shortcut from Desktop to this startup folder. This will ensure will open when you boot windows.

 

Success!!

Are you saying you just followed the steps on the first page and it worked for you? Inc working on your LG 5k? No other set up/steps required? This is extremely frustrating as I tried pretty much everything and didn't ever manage to get my 5K powered by the gpu....

I have successfully tested my egpu set up with this method. Late 2013 mbp with 750m internal GPUs, running a GTx 1060 egpu in a akitio node

 

however, after installing this package, my startup has become extremely unstable and slow. The apple progress bar moves very slowly or sometimes just starts full but sierra either never starts or takes a good 4-5 min to start. Previous start up times were 5-10 seconds. I am running 10.13.1. After experiencing this the first time I reinstalled high sierra which fixed the start up issue but the issue returned as soon as I installed the egpu nvidia package so it is definitely something to do with this package. The problem persists whether the egpu is plugged in or not

 

anyone else experience this or have any ideas??
