Hello,

I have recently purchased and installed the Akitio Node Pro with a 1080ti and my MBP 2017.

I have been following the guides on this site for 3 days now and not having any success.

Is anyone willing to assist me with this setup? 

Payment negotiable.

Regards

Which guides? What are you finding is going wrong? Is the enclosure recognised? Is the card recognised? Did drivers instal correctly? Are you using an external screen? What firmware is your Node Pro using?

Update:

All working now.

Trap for young players - the USB-C cable that comes with an MBP is not TB3. (really kicked myself for this one)

Supreme credit goes to yifanlu  https://egpu.io/forums/mac-setup/wip-nvidia-egpu-support-for-high-sierra/

My steps were -

  1. Install webdriver.sh easily with Homebrew

    brew tap vulgo/repo
    brew install webdriver.sh
  2. Run the Nvidea driver provided by  yifanlu (Likely redundant)
  3. Run in terminal csrutil enable --without kext)
  4. Run the Egpu package provided by  yifanlu
  5. Run the Nvidea driver provided by  yifanlu (I suspect this had something to do with fixing the caches

Pertaining to Bootcamp/Windows 10, it seemed to miraculously download the drivers itself. 

Thanks to everyone who offered help.
