  1. Hi, I have a problem with my eGPU. The problem is that when my computer boots up with eGPU connected to it at login menu when I type in my password it starts to load and at certain moment loading bar stops and I get an error message and it happens all over again, sometimes as I have noticed the loading bar doesn’t fill up at all it just stays empty and computer also restart and throws away an error message. The equipment I use is : MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015) Processor : 2,7 GHz Intel Core i5 Memory : 8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 Graphics : Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB Thunderbolt 2 port SSD capacity : 120 GB Version 10.13.6 High Sierra 2) 21:9 Curved UltraWide Monitor 34UC97 21:9 Curved QHD Flicker-Safe IPS DISPLAY SRGB OVER 99% / 10-bit-colour via Display Port THUNDERBOLT™ 2 / MAC® COMPATIBLE Wall Mountable (100x100) ENERGY STAR® QUALIFIED More info about this monitor can be find here if needed : https://www.lg.com/uk/monitors/lg-34UC97 3) AKiTiO Thunder2 PCIe Box More info about it can be sound here if needed : https://www.akitio.com/expansion/thunder2-pcie-box 4) GPU : Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 Mini ITX Overclocked 4GB GDDR5 PCiE Video Card GV-N970IXOC-4GD More info about it can be sound here if needed : https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Graphics-Card/GV-N970IXOC-4GD#ov 5) Power supply : Corsair RM 650 More info about it can be sound here if needed : https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Power/rm-series-config/p/CP-9020054-NA As far as I have noticed when I had Mac OS El Capitan and used Automate-eGPU.sh script from this link : https://www.techinferno.com/index.php?/forums/topic/7989-script-automating-the-installation-of-egpu-on-os-x-inc-display-output/ It used to work pretty good but that was years ago, even now if I install Mac OS El Capitan and run this script it wont detect my eGPU from first attempt, even if it detects it and install the script the computer might freeze on dark grey screen just after the restart. I used to turn off computer completely then and turn it back on and sometimes it helped to start eGPU. Later on I updated my Mac OS El Capitan to Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 and automate eGPU script both from *********** and technoinferno.com used to work. I could turn computer on and off and eGPU was working all the times. But after few hours when I decided to turn on my computer it all just refused to work, at login menu after typing in the password the loading bar was just freezing and rebooting and giving me an error message. I’ve had same errors both with Mac OS Sierra and Mac OS El Capitan. Right now I am using Mac OS High Sierra version 10.13.6 and I used many scripts such as Automate-eGPU version 1.3, purge wrangler.sh. With purge wrangler.sh script I used function “Enable NVIDIA eGPU” and after that rebooted the seestem through purge wrangler script, and again nothing seemed to work. Had same errors, the loading bar was loading up a little (about 25%, sometimes it used to load up to 50% approximately) and whole system was restarted again and again. I hope anyone could tell me what to do to make it all work well, please help me. Thanks! Basically same problem as you have guys my Mac just reboots itself and I don't know why, please help. thanks!
