I am trying to install the driver for a external RTX2070 (in the Aorus Gaming Box) on my Macbook Pro Touchbar (MacbookPro 14,2) running a fresh Ubuntu 18.04 (dual boot with OSX).
I am not able to attach the GPU during bootup of Ubuntu or the Ubuntu Installer, otherwise my internal screen stays blank, so I always have to attach it after bootup. I also tried ssh in that case.
What I tried:
Installed rEFInd and Ubuntu 18.04 with updates and third party drivers option.
Installed nvidia driver 430
sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo apt autoremove sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver-430 nvidia-prime
sudo bash -c "echo blacklist nouveau > /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf" sudo bash -c "echo options nouveau modeset=0 >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia-nouveau.conf"
Added nvidia-drm.modeset=1 to grub, but I am unsure how to verify it
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub sudo update-initramfs -u reboot
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

I also tried:
sudo prime-select nvidia sudo nvidia-xconfig sudo apt install nvidia-modprobe
And tried downloading the .run installer which always fails: “Unable to load the ‘nvidia-drm’ kernel module”
Secure Boot was always off
mokutil --sb-state This system doesn't support Secure Boot
I really don’t know what else I can do to get it running.
