  1. Hi! I've currently got my Akitio Thunder 2 + MBPr setup working beautifully with Windows 10 - except for one annoying issue. Sometimes when I boot up Windows 10, the OS will try to output on the display output of my eGPU (GTX 960) instead of on the internal display. This means that I can't log into the OS and that I have to force-reboot. Sometimes I time the bootup correctly, and everything works perfectly, but sometimes it doesn't - which is very annoying. Do any of you guys know a way to force Windows 10 to use the internal display - always - even if an eGPU is plugged in (basically forced Optimus)?

  3. That explains a lot. Thanks. I'll try to see if I can flash it to get it Mac compatible. Otherwise I'll just use it on Windows until I get my hands on a 970. Yeah. The more I code the more I prefer to stay in Terminal. Though if I have to use a GUI, OS X still works very well.
  4. I've just set up my eGPU Akitio 2 setup with an XFX R7 260X. I've downloaded the script and run it with System Integrity Protection turned off. The script adds the identifiers to the kexts successfully. The script sees the GPU and tells me to reboot, but when I do, the progress bar at boot only goes halfway full, and then stops. I've tried to boot in verbose mode, but I can't see any output that seems "off". The GPU is getting enough power, so that shouldn't be the issue. My MacBook boots perfectly fine when the Akitio isn't plugged into Thunderbolt, but when it is, the progress bar stops. Does anyone have an idea of what could be wrong? I've tried pretty much anything at this point. (BTW, @goalque, mad props for putting the script on GitHub etc. etc. Your shell scripting skills are off the hook! )
  5. Hi! I'm currently building my own eGPU for my MBPr. I've got a GPU (R7 260X), an Akitio 2 and a Dell DA-2. I've read the threads where people "found out" that you could use a DA-2 as a power supply. My problem is, that noone in the thread ever really gave a solid write-up in how to wire the power to the Aktio barrel plug and the GPU. So, my request is: can anyone who's used the DA-2 with the barrel-conversion-cable-trick write a simple newbie guide (step by step)? It will help not just me, but also any other people wanting to build an eGPU.
  6. I've managed to find Dell DA-2's online now. My goal is to end up with a setup somewhat like this: The poster of the video has commented this on the video:
  7. Hi! I'm a complete newb when it comes to anything eGPU. I've researched a bit on these forums and watched a bunch of YouTube videos, but I still have some questions in order to get started, mainly questions regarding powering the setup I want to build. I'd like to have a build that's as compact and in "one piece" as possible. I'd like a single wire going out of the Akitio to power the setup. No external PSU's or anything like that. The GPU that I have is the Sapphire Radeon R7 260X: http://www.sapphiretech.com/productdetial.asp?pid=38D17047-E956-4D7A-AA1B-050A3F519239&lang=eng I read most of the Dell DA-2 thread, but I don't really know what to make of it all. I found this 220W PSU which looks small: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Replacement-5188-7520-5188-7521-5188-2755-DPS-108DB-1/dp/B00E961EK6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1459090990&sr=8-2&keywords=atx+220w So, my questions are: Will I be able to fit both the PSU and the card inside the Akitio? Or is the PSU still too big? If the PSU is too big, how should I power the build? It looks like the Dell power supply isn't available anymore. If I have to use a power supply similar to the Dell one, how does the whole barrel-soldering thing work? If I buy a premade cable, do I just plug it in and go? Thanks for any help in advance!
