Tried with different SMBIOS, same results.

in your config.plist put nvda-drv=1 and nvidiaweb

Restart

Put web driver in prefs system/ web driver manager

Restart

this should be good

Have you disable your IGPU in bios?

I just installed the new Clover bootloader and the new Nvidia Web Drivers. I didn't changed nothing more. I had a working El Capitan 10.11.6 before these two updates.

So I suggest you to install the drivers web with http://www.insanelym...er-updaterapp/  and patched with the version of the OS

I just go on a fresh installation of Sierra, following the same instructions and...the same problem! I just installed Sierra and then added "Nvidia web drivers" flag on config.plist and then installed web drivers. At the reboot, no signal after the white apple.

So I believe there's something going wrong after the combo update Clover-Nvidia Web Drivers on my system!

Then something interesting
I just installed an X99-A II, with 6850K  and 980Ti
Web driver installed, and nothing in the config.plist

What do you mean when you say "nothing in the config.plist"?

No flags about graphics? I have a Gigabyte GTX 960, 2GB RAM.

 

It is recognized by the system as "NVIDIA CHIP MODEL" 6mb, ID 0x1401

Well now, Security Update 2016-002 broke my NVIDIA web drivers again, this time version 346.03.15f03 in El Capitan 10.11.6 build 15G1108. I tried using the NVIDIA Webdriver Updater App, but it did not successfully solve the problem. I think I used the app correctly, as I checked the modify after installation thing. Perhaps I put the wrong number in it – I could not find good documentation on this. The app just stopped responding, displaying a spinning beach ball. Although the driver was installed, it would not activate after the restart due to a wrong build error.

 

Onto solution 2 until NVIDIA comes out with a new version for this build: I just manually edited the info.plist in the NVDAStartupWeb.kext to look for the new build, then installed the kext using my favorite kext installer program. This got it to mostly work, it is now showing Apple driver as selected at startup, but is in fact using the NVIDIA driver. Hopefully NVIDIA will issue an update in the next few days for this.

^^ wait for nvidia before before you update if you're not so sure

 

 

an empty NVDARequiredOS is better

Thanks for the updated driver. Just installed El Capitan over the weekend, and got frustrated when I applied the new update and the display stopped working properly. I guess, next time I should check on here if there is a driver for Nvidia, before updating. For some reason, the Nvidia update application would not show this package, I had to manually download and install it.

I've got a GTX 670 running on 10.11.6 with the OSX native drivers perfectly fine.  Is there any benefit I'll have by using the web drivers instead?

What do you mean? So your config file is empty? You used the default config file? You put the word "nothing" Or do you mean you did not add the "nvda_dvr=1" flag in boot->args?

You youngsters and your secret chat codes. At least I'm grateful you did not uses emoticons... 

 

Could you link your config file please? I ask because nothing is simply with hackingtosheszzz!

Good evening
The method is as follows:
- Start Without web driver nv_disable = 1
- Launch AGDPfix which adjust the info.plist
- Restart with nv_disable = 1
- Install the webdrivers
- Restart without putting boot flag, normally WebDriver installation injects nvda-drv = 1 in the nvram.
If at startup the webdrivers are not active, then inject nvda-drv = 1 in config.plist

^^^  I think you meant: nvda_dvr=1.  Also new method is to add this to config.plist

        <key>NvidiaWeb</key>
        <true/>

in System Parameters
