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?

Just follow the directions on the first post. Don't overthink it.

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.

 Just delete /Library/Extensions/NVDAEGPUSupport.kext

I don't create any other files.

No problems, thanks for being a welcoming community. I got my card last Thursday, got windows working Friday, reversed AMD and NVDA drivers over the weekend and wrote this on Monday, so it wasn't a big time sink. I think all knowledge should be free and open--it annoys me when I see someone brag about getting something done and purposely not sharing the details.

Backlight with no actual output seems to be the problem I'm having with my 1060. 

Hi, I have macbook pro retina 15 2013-late with gt750m, This model can't work with eGPU either AMD_based or Nvidia_based. 

Because of the nvidiaframebuffer this problem can not be solved, but I see your solution, I think maybe this will work. How I can modify it for AMD_eGPU, just solved the framebuffer problem.

I'm not sure I understand your question. All this does is make the High Sierra behavior consistent with Sierra. If your device works on Sierra, it should work on High Sierra.

He probably refers to this discussion:

I think the link to the Nvidia drivers is wrong, I'm not getting the option for macOS... or am I being daft?

Should be:  http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/120845/en-us no?  Sorry, thats 10.12.6

If you want to find drivers for macOS on Nvidia site, just choose GTX680 (that was officially supported).

That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.

Cheers for that link... I'm throwing caution to the wind and giving this a try...

I get this issue, but I have a feeling it's because I have no Nvidia card connected, I continue anyway and it appears to have installed...

You need to have SIP enabled during the driver installation 😉 ...if you already installed drivers with this error just uninstall them. Reboot enable SIP and install again 😉

This error message is due to Nvidia's SIP validation. Click continue.

Web drivers are also available from:

http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Product Type: Quadro, Product: Quadro K5000 for Mac, OS: 10.13 yields driver version 378.10.10.10.15.120.

For easier installation, I might fork yifanlu's project and implement automatic driver download.

It looks like they installed just fine and I'm pretty sure I had SIP enabled...

Installed the Nvidia enabler, although I dont have my eGPU at work all appears to be working fine with an external display connected to my laptop, sounds stupid but that wasn't the case with the 10.12.6 fix ups.

Look forward to getting home more than usual so I can see if my 1070 is recognised. Pretty crazy if it has only taken a kext to get things working (I messed about with kexts a fair bit when building my hackintosh).

It doesn't matter whether you have it enabled or not, it's just Nvidia's if-statement.

I followed the steps from yifanlu first post, setup run smoothly, after final restart the internal display had some strange artifacts and the external one worked with the backlight only and keeps powering off and on again, if I unplugged my egpu macOS will start correctly.

I tried to plug the egpu on the login screen and got the same result.

I tried also to plug the egpu after logging in, then to log out and back in with the egpu connected, macOS loaded without issues, both Nvidia driver manager and the system info detected my gnu correctly (1080 Ti) but the external monitor will work with backlight only (no image).

finally, if I restarted macOS with egpu disconnected, then connect it after logging in, and without logging off and in again, Nvidia driver manager will not detect the egpu, but the system info will show "Nvidia Chip Model"

Best Regards,

Mohammad Katayen (mklegend)
