I don't know as I would turn it off before installing to test drivers/kexts. Try it now that you have it install. I'd clear kext cache with the following:
Code:
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
sudo kextcache -system-caches
Rebooted to a black screen. HD led blinking erratically.

OK! Looks like the driver is a problem for hackintoshs. Turn Gatekeeper back on to keep it from loading. You may have to boot from the USB Installer.

You mean the VRS8 driver? I had uninstalled it prior to clearing the cache.

Hmmm. Using your USB Installer, boot into your Recovery partition and run Disk Utility > First Aid on your drive.

I did a hard shut down, unplugged the power chord for a minute and everything's back up and running....except VRS8. I wonder if @joevt was talking about the actual details in the driver info.plist that need to be changed to force the OS to recognize the unit.

EDIT - I'm referring to this thread which deals with a similar issue on another thunderbolt audio interface.
