  1. Congrats, @r00x. Now it seems easier to use your eGPU, isnt it? Frustrated as I am, I cant get it to work. I might need to format again and start from scratch. If you could list out your step by step guide, that would be helpful. Or you had follow the same procedure that farandhigh98 given, then that's ok.
  2. Hi @farandhigh98, I have try to follow the link you shared it but I haven't try out the results yet. Were you able to get the same results as shown? I can't find the PCI bus last entry but only PCI complex roots. And also I wasnt able to get LARGE memory from device manager > resources by connection. I'll post another update if I was able to get it to work or failed again. I dont have the time to do any eGPU test for a while.
  3. Hi @r00x, Yes, I did restart after disabling the GT650M. And updated the lastest nvidia driver. In no specific order I followed your instruction but I start off: Plug in eGPU , disable GT 650M, Reboot Download latest NVIDIA drivers (specifically my eGPU) Uninstall just the nvidia graphics driver through Programs and Features Limit Windows Automatic Driver. Reboot Install drivers And this happens. Once the drivers install, external monitor did went on but it show a black screen and a wifi symbol glitch on and off? Still no luck. Oh and I went back installing Setup 1.2 for good measures.
  4. Hi, A little update. I followed @errin guide with every step of the way. Still no result. No detection of eGPU in windows 8.1 . Later, I installed DIY Setup 1.3. Giving me a chainloading error. I'm really getting frustrated here. Am I really out of options here? Can someone give me a very specific guide whether I should do or dont?
  5. Hi @r00x, Thanks for helping. Setting the PE4C SW1 and SW2 worked. Save me the hassle to hotplugging. But unfortunately disable my GT650M did not help at all. Still wont able to detect my eGPU. I'm not too sure if my thunderbolt needs to be updated or not but it works with other PCI-express hardware. I have no error code so which mean I did not progress at all. Hi @Tech Inferno Fan, Thanks for helping. The link you sent ,user bsohn, did help me a little bit. I dont know how but the eGPU setup 1.2 did detect my GPU or looks like it but when following the steps froze or stays when choosing an option (mind you, i press the number keys instead of anything else) . Im still stuck with my computer not detecting a gpu or giving me an error like everyone else. I need to try again. Bottom images are something new that happened. Probably isnt important.
  6. Hi, I have a big/little problem to make my eGPU work. Here's are my specs and hardware. Macbook Pro 15" Mid 2012 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz) with 6MB L3 cache 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory 1TB Seagate SSHD + 750GB 5400 rpm (optical disc drive removed) NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 memory OS: OSX Yosemite & Bootcamp (Windows 8.1 64-bit) eGPU needed hardware/software: 480W PSU Veriton Sonnet EE PE4C-EC060A v3.0 (Link to website: http://www.hwtools.net/Adapter/PE4C%20V3.0.html ) QLeadtek GTX 650 Ti Boost DIY eGPU Setup 1.20 by Tech Inferno Fan So, I already have bootcamp(Windows 8.1) installed. So skip that part. Installed the DIY eGPU 1.20 (Have read throught MBR implementation, it seems my model requires 1.20 since everyone is using it?) Hook up the hardware. Image below shown. Ok. I cant upload a 189kb picture. This sucks. I hooked up the 24 pin from PSU to the eGPU. And use a 2 molex adapter to a 8 pin connector to power my GPU. Then eGPU express card to my Sonnet and to my laptop. Situation: eGPU and GPU works when I on my laptop. That's fine. Problem 1: Whenever I do that in the beginning, my computer freezes. Before my mac can boot up to windows os, it freezes on the white screen. Problem 2: Run laptop first to boot windows 8.1. Then plug in eGPU. GPU isnt detected. Nothing happened. So far this is accurate on what I have been doing with eGPU. I worked on this for more than half a year now. I need help. I've gone through lots of websites and such. But havent gone through enough. Please let me know what's my problem or any further information, i'll do my best to answer them. (Edit1: Planning to buy a swex soon. So its gonna take 1 month time. Not sure if its needed or not) Thanks, Kazeki
