hello I've managed to install HP z400 yosemite 10.10.5 with nvidia quadro 2000.

 
once the main installation had to start with the following flags.
PCIRootUID = 0
GraphicsEnabler = Yes
Nv_disable = 1
I could make the next phase of the installation running more or less all right. bluetooth included .. but I have a little problem with the nvidia. If I reboot without any flag does not work .. I only get started with: nv_disable .. and the system to boot and it works fine .. but NVIDIA has a very slow refresh .. anyone knows what can happen? I show my content boot.plist
<Key> EthernetBuiltIn </ key>
<String> YES </ string>
<Key> GenerateCStates </ key>
<String> YES </ string>
<Key> GeneratePStates </ key>
<String> YES </ string>
<Key> Graphics Mode </ key>
<String> 1920x1200x32 </ string>
<Key> GraphicsEnabler </ key>
<String> YES </ string>
<Key> HDAEnabler </ key>
<String> YES </ string>
<Key> IGPEnabler </ key>
<String> YES </ string>
<Key> Kernel Flags </ key>
<String> kext-dev-mode = 1 </ string>
<Key> Legacy Logo </ key>
<String> YES </ string>
<Key> Theme </ key>
<String> Choose_Your_OS </ string>
<Key> Timeout </ key>
<String> 5 </ string>
<Key> UseKernelCache </ key>
<String> YES </ string>
also comment that use 2 screens hp zr2440 which support the 1920x1200 resolution and only one of them works as a resolution 1600x1200.
Thanks in advance.

 

This is not a Chameleon key

<Key> IGPEnabler </ key>
<String> YES </ string>

I have or "had" rather a complete install of osx Yosemite 10.9.5. on a HP Z800. I say "had" because for some reason I'm getting the black screen with mouse cursor unless I use the "nv_disable=1" flag. in which then I pretty much have no graphics acceleration. I installed pretty much using the basic method (base system dmg then copy the package files and install Enoch bootloader) with only using "kext-dev-mode=1 and UseKernelCache=No, GraphicsEnabler=Yes". also deleted "AppleHPET.KEXT". everything went fine first boot, had full resolution and everything work OOB except for the audio in which I just installed voodoohda. bam sound working. I reboot because I installed a program that required and now no more desktop. I also forgot to add I also used the 4 kext listed in this thread to get the installer to see my hard drives using SATA instead of SAS. I used SAS once also for an install and I just rolled back to the Fusion kext from 10.9.1. I have no idea what made it stop working. I have a complete dsdt compiled with no warnings or errors, I have the ssdt, and also using the mac pro 4,1 smbios. dsdt compiles without any errors. ill attach the dsdt I'm using in case it may be useful. And if necessary I can give info on the DSDT edits. I used no patches at all.

SPECS:

2X Xeon e5520 (8 physical cores 16 logical)

8 gigs FB ECC ram

2nd revision motherboard with 3.57 bios

4 hard drives via SATA no RAID with their own OS (using OSX hard drive as bootloader)

Dlink DWA-556 extreme wifi card

NVidia Quadro fx1800 graphics card with LG ultrawide LCD as monitor (29um57)

That black screen with the cursor is usually a result of the loginwindow.plist file having an issue. go into the /library/preferences and remove the com.apple.loginwindow.plist file and restart. that will allow it to rebuild and should fix the issue. this is an issue I have seen on a real mac before and this fixes it nearly every time. 

 

Cheers,

This is working EFI folder for HP z400. https://copy.com/ymtVy8JgjSyB8hYG

Instal Clover on ESP and overwrite the EFI folder. Working with yosemite 10.10.5
