Just thought I'd add my experience here.  I'm on a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) with an Akitio Node and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6 GB.  I  was happily running High Sierra 10.13.1 .  Then my computer updated to 10.13.2 (pretty sure I told it "remind me later" or "leave me alone, I don't want to update" but it did it anyway). When I came to my computer it was unresponsive but "on".  I held power to shut down, then powered back up with the eGPU and every other peripheral disconnected.  It gave me time estimates of finishing the update (that I didn't want) and I went to bed.  This morning I get up to see the white apple on a black screen with the progress bar stalled at the very end.  I hard shut down, power up and it gets to the end of the progress bar and stops again.  Wait half an hour and no change.  So I boot in recovery mode (Command-R) and get into the terminal.  I rename /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Library/Extensions/NVDAEGPUSupport.kext to NVDAEGPUSupport.kext.old  then restart.  The Mac was back to being able to boot up (although with no eGPU).  Then I came to this thread, made sure I had the latest web driver, restarted... and ran the NVDAEGPUSupport-v4-SU.zip program to get my eGPU support back.  I still have to have the TB cable unplugged when I hit power on the Mac and wait to plug it in until the white apple logo and progress bar show up, but everything is working again.  I didn't read through all the other posts, so it's possible that this procedure has already been described but I thought it would be helpful (even just for myself) to know how to work around an OS update stopping the computer from booting.  When I was using automate-eGPU.sh from goalque I had to make sure to enable -a to avoid plugging in the thunderbolt cable for the eGPU at just the right time (any time after the progress bar shows up, but not before) but I don't believe there is such a mode for NVDAEGPUSupport.  But hey, timing for a cable connection is a small price to pay Smile

Hi so I am not success for few weeks ago, but I just use the external monitor to work. Now I think I have to fix this problem so I put my issue on it.

System Version: macOS 10.13.2 (17C205)

MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017 mid)

EGPU bos: AKITIO Node pro 

Model of graphic card: Titan X 12G (Maxwell)

Model of your display: Acer P236HL, using DVI cable.

I tried to instill and uninstall many time. But it just always like this. 

I can very sure I do the right way to install. I have already go research that is someone have some model with me, but they are no.

External monitor is working, and it work fine. But my MBP still cannot change to use my eGPU. 

So I just fo the mirror display to use for a while. 

I really want to know how to fix this problem. 

Thank you Smile

New drivers for 10.13.3 (17D47) - https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/387/WebDriver-387.10.10.10.25.156.pkg - and the updated activator.

It is likely an issue with the new Nvidia drivers or whatever Apple changed, but my setup no longer works after installing the above - just black screens with no cursor.   It was working on the previous version.  I have a MBP 2017 13" with an Akitio Node and an Nvidia 750 Ti card.

Thanks for your dedicated and quick work on these enablers!

I had no time today for deep testing, so I've just checked my eGPU w/o an external monitor - the card was detected correctly.

But hackintosh users report about issues with new drivers, so the problem might be on Nvidia side.

I had my setup working in win10, but to activate with a cd-key, it automatically updated and I got the "error 12", so I tried to reinstall win10 and just not activate it, but it installed that newer update.

Then I thought f*** it, I'm just gonna run it in High Sierra. So I installed the drivers and got I working, but my 1080's fans dont run, so the egpu is useless..

Anyone else had this problem, and might have a way to fix it?

Seems to be not a gerneral issue. The updated driver and eGPU script helped me to reenable the eGPU after the update yesterday. Except a flickering windows boot logo on the internal display everything works now with macOS 10.3.3. (MBP late 2016 2TB Ports, Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box with GTX 1080)

Setup: MacBook Pro 2018 15" 2.6GHz Radeon Pro 560X on macOS 10.14 & Windows 10 (Bootcamp); Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 350 with a Zotac GTX1080 AMP! Edition

I tried this on an iMac 5K with a Sonnet breakaway box /w 1080.  The login/logout method works but the internal display still uses the Radeon 580.  The external displays use the Nvidia.  Rebooting with the eGPU connected takes very long, but it works on just the external monitor (but very laggy / unusable).

Any ideas?
