@traceq: Great news!

@flyinganimal: could you post screenshots of:

About this mac -> displays

About this mac -> overview -> system report -> graphics/displays

About this mac -> overview -> system report -> thunderbolt

You will have to uninstall Rastafabi's eGPU enabler because that won't work with High Sierra. So I suggest you uninstall anything you've tried to install, then start from the first post in this thread.

I can't find anywhere where anyone explained what combo update means? Can someone enlighten me? 

Thank you!

 Combo update is one that updates your machine two versions in one go. So instead of doing two updates, one to go from 10.13 to 10.13.1 and then another to go from 10.13.1 to  10.13.2, a combo update will take you directly from 10.13 to 10.13.2. The end result should be the same, but often the versions and signatures of some items are different, which is why the eGPU method varies depending on how you got to 10.13.2, whether incrementally from 10.13.1 or directly from 10.13 with the combo update.

Anyone can suggest a fix when the eGPU is recognized - but the display turns black?

@DANgerous25
Hey!
Thanks for the suggestions. I actually did a clean install of high Sierra meaning that I completely erased the hard drive and started from zero. 
I am running 13.2 now, installed web drivers coda and coda drivers, all of them from Nvidia. then I disabled sip, and I tried to compile the Nvidiaegpusupport from GitHub. I got only as far as building the package (NVDAEGPUSupport.pkg) from build.sh. when I try to run the package I get this error every time:

error

I kept looking around and found webdriver.sh at https://github.com/vulgo/webdriver.sh.
I installed that successfully as far as I can tell - it is written in usr/local/bin and I managed to run the script and did its thing.

however, I suspect that not being able to run the Nvidiaegpusupport package makes my egpu undetectable, which it is, so I'm sort of where I was, if not further.. anyone any thoughts on how to run the package successfully or any workaround? I feel I'm  getting somewhere anyway but I'm completely stuck here...

thanks heaps for all your help guys Smile

Hi again everyone!
elaborating on my two previous posts..
the only thing I thought could have helped was installing Xcode so the build.sh script of nvidiaegpusupport can do its thing properly. unfortunately, no luck either....

this is the message I get when compiling it:
---------------------------------

192:~ michalmitro$ sh /Users/michalmitro/Downloads/NVIDIAEGPUSupport-master/package/build.sh 

Building project...

User defaults from command line:

    IDEArchivePathOverride = /tmp/build.xcarchive

productbuild: Wrote product to /Users/michalmitro/Downloads/NVIDIAEGPUSupport-master/package/NVDAEGPUSupport.pkg

192:~ michalmitro$ 

 

------------------------------------------

it still creates the package itself, but than I can't install it and I get the installation error that I posted earlier.
I figured that one thing that would totally help me out would be if some of you who installed the NVIDIAegpusupport package for high Sierra 13.2 successfully would upload it here or on GitHub? I just can't build it myself for some obscure reason. I found two earlier versions of the package somewhere in the middle of this thread  but those are obviously for high Sierra 13.0 and 13.1 and I can't downgrade to them now... I managed to install 13.1 package without any problem but it won't run my egpu obviously...

I hope someone there can help me out. I ve been trying for over a week now and haven't been able to achieve anything... :/ but surely this is about to change soon Smile

cheers everyone Smile

This worked perfectly for a Mac Pro (Late 2013), Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box and MSI GTX 1080 TI. Thank you.
