Here ;) :

	<key>Boot</key>
	<dict>
		<key>Arguments</key>
		<string>nvda_drv=1 nv_disable=1 kext-dev-mode=1</string>

nv_disable=1 overides nvda_drv=1 so you'll never have any acceleration until you remove it :D.

 

 

ah, but I can't boot without nv_disable=1

You should not set InjectNVIDIA=true when using webdrivers. I'm not sure it is necessary and it could be counterproductive.

 

Also, you should remove values like DualLink, NVCAP, etc. in Graphics section. In short, you should remove all of them and make sure your Intel Graphics HD chipset is disabled in Bios and that discrete card is set to Primary device.

 

Often, the best is the enemy of the good ;).

I really appreciate your help. It was very kind of you to reply.

 

The actual solution was:

 

boot with nv_disable=1

 

install a modified AppleGraphicsControl kext

 

remove nv_disable=1 and reboot.

 

Finally full function. 

 

 

edit: I believe this is the change which was made to AGC.kext:

 

Edit the AppleGraphicsControl.kext and burrow down to /Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist

> IOKitPersonalities
> AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy
> ConfigMap
FA842E06C61E91C5 change from Config 2 to none. 

Save changes and reinstall kext. Reboot.

Anyone around that uses a GTX970?

 

I cannot seem to get the GM to boot for the life of me.

 

Im on irc.nspwn.net #ElCapitan (I would love to get some help if someone knows what they are doing) - I am truly stuck and almost ready to just pop in my old 660.

 

This is driving me nuts!

Working fine here GTX970 didn't do anything special other than have the card removed for the initial install, then nv_disable=1 to install the web drivers then nvda_drv=1 and reboot.

the last 346.03.01b07 webdriver is the same for DB7/PB5/DB8/PB6/GM

 

it also works fine with the first 10.11.1 build 15B17c beta... just have to edit the NVDAStartupWeb.kext Info.plist file NVDARequiredOS section 15A to 15B

I'm a total noob so what program do I use to edit the .pkg. 

 

 


15A->15B

Repair permissions with Kext Utility

Add nvda_drv=1 to boot args if it was deleted

=

working 970gtx on 10.11.1

You need to edit NVDAStartupWeb.kext installed in /S/L/E not pkg.

Just a heads up, for El Capitan Release version, the build is no longer 15B but again is 15A so you need to change back.

GM was 15A

Then 10.11.1 Beta was 15B

And now the release is 15A

That is exactly what I had to do. I had to nv_disable -> Let it install then -> nvda_drv=1 and let it boot.

 

It wound up being a SMBIOS issue. I am running a Macpro3,1 SMBIOS atm. It is prob wrong. But things seem to work.

 

I tried to update to 10.11.1 (But the graphics drivers say its not supported) and i can only boot with nv_disable=1

Hi, here is the noob...

 

I have a Mac Pro (2009) 2x2,26 Ghz. My Graphic card is an MSI 970 GTX. All worked fine on Yosemite (never had driver issue) but I installed El Capitan today and the WebDriver-346.03.01b06 but It doesn't work... I just get a black screen...

 

As I told U I'm a noob and I don't know what to do now... Could U help me step by step please ?

 

May I have to edit some file with Pacifist ? Which ones and what do I do ?

 

Excuse my poor english...

Hi everyone

just to give an idea ,i'm using a hackintosch with clover install and Yosemite since 1 year but i'm still a newb coming to very specific stuff like kexts etc...

i tried today to update from yosemite to el capitan

Everything went well , i used nv_disable=1 to install ; again to for 2nd reboot when install was done

I get the screen with the apple and the progress bar , i even reach the page where i need to put my password to log in and then i've got the beautiful new colored el capitan wheel who keeps on turning and turning and i couldn't pass that stage ....

got I7 5930k , gtx 970 gigabyte x99ud4 

if anyone have an idea , i'll appreciate it

thanks and good luck to all

Very nice driver update!

 

Anyone know if these work on 10.11.1? I tried the B07 drivers and they did not work.

 

Thanks
