I've made a package installer  https://github.com/yifanlu/NVIDIAEGPUSupport/releases/latest please try it and let me know if it works.

Hi I just installed High Sierra and  your installer works, but their is a catch.   What I mean is, if I had my EPGU turned on during the boot process (between Apple logo screeen to Log on screen) it would go to a black screen on both internal and external monitor.  The way I was able to get it working was to keep my EPGU turned off until I got the Log on screen , once there I turned on the EGPU and let it get detected then I would sign on once my external monitor displayed HIGH sierra wall paper.  I hope the makes sense.
PS, thank you guys for your hard work.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

FINALLY I solved my issue. Turns out it's my POS Samsung 4k monitor. This same monitor I had issues with for months (random computer freezes/crashes on wakeup) which led to me buying a eGPU because I thought "the monitor is a dumb sink and I can connect other stuff to it fine, it couldn't possibly be broken, the problem must be with the iGPU". 

Well guess what? It was the monitor. Plugging my eGPU into another display worked fine.

Lesson learned: don't buy samsung stuff.

Thank you @lexine for clarifying my steps.

@yifanlu - glad you have it working now and thanks for the installer .pkg - does that remove the step to rebuild caches or do we still need to do that?

Morning. I went to bed with this thread titled [WIP] and work up with that changed to [APP], holy cow what a first post...

Going to have a full read through today, but already have a question reg implementation. With the previous 10.12.6 methods my LG 5K Display didn't work, I felt the previous method did something to do with how internal screens were treated (just my guess) which was part of getting it working but as the LG screens are treated more like internals (I believe) my set up got all confused and I couldn't use my 5K (it actually showed up as 2x 5K in system prefs but all sorts of issues to the extent it was unusable and so was the laptop when connected). 

So my question is, does this new method contain the same sort of fixes that could cause the same issues? If this wasn't my work laptop I use everyday I would jump right in, but I cant take that risk...

edit: And if you ever want/need a GUI designed for this just let me know, I’m no use on the technical side of things but GUI design is my job

The pkg should rebuild the cache for you. It will also check if you have web drivers installed and set your drivers from official to Web because I'm nice.

Will this package installer + the web drivers work on rMBP 2016 with dGPU Radeon Pro 460 and High Sierra? or is it just the 13 inch MBP without touch bar?

Best Regards,

Awesome - I'm going to have some time over the weekend to test both Mac Pro and Mac Mini with multiple cards but as you say if it worked on Sierra it should now work on High Sierra.

I think I speak for all of us here when I say we are truly grateful for what you have shared with the community and boy... what a first post - that'll take some beating. Congrats.

Oh, and is there an easy way to uninstall if I get carried away and give it a go anyway...?

And also, MASSIVE thanks to yifanlu for making this and being so open and generous with his time and work.

All this does is fix a stupid bug Apple introduced in high sierra that prevented nvidia drivers from loading. If your setup works on sierra, it should work on high sierra with this.

Actually I didn't try my setup on macOS cause I got my graphics card 1080 ti after updating to H.S. and I knew from the forum here that it won't work, so I just tried the setup with windows 10 bootcamp and it's working flawlessly.

In this case, do I need to run goalque script before installing the web driver and the package installer? or it's not required any more?
