this my last post

you have to use nvram that is stored in sierra boot drive because that nvram contains the nvda=drv value that the nvda_drv from El Capitan don’t have

because El Capitan don't use that new value

if you use another hard drive boot loader , yes it will boot the system , yes that hard drive also has nvram.plist

but that file do not have the value that is require for the graphic card to work in sierra

so most likely the problem that most people are having is because they are booting sierra from clover boot loader that is installed in El Capitan Hard drive or partition

just make sure that sierra got his own boot loader installed on its own bootable sierra drive

i’m done here , i wish everybody good luck and success

all i wanted to do was help

but it seems that it bothers some people

Eww giz Why so salty honey? Anyways boys calm your {censored} down and don't do dumb stuff. 
Sierra should get its own Hard driver packed with its own Bootloader. Why? Because it has its own particularities!
put Emuvariable under clover folder then run commands and you're done.

as for the other person comment joe75 about that the topic has become painfully to read, so you want me to apologies because my english is not perfect, "sorry for my bad english" even my english is painful to read, blocklanders understood me and got his card working, and don't say you didn't said that because of me, be a man and backup your words and if you actually didn't say it because of me, you know those kind of comment make people feel people bad, specially people who can't write english 100% but you know what is all good anyway because blocklanders comment made me feel good with his positive comment. im also happy that he got his card working.

 

even with my broken down english which i already know is not perfect but thanks for the complement anyway joe, maybe you will not understand this because is painful to read, so i see your comment as a rude comment but if i said rude things to you then i get ban from the forum. that's why i'm not going to say anything but if you have something to say be direct and specific and don't make those comments that make people feel bad. thank you i hope this don't be to painful to read but i'm sure anybody with an average brain can understand. there are more countries around the world and the world is not just the streets around your house. i will like to see you try to talk or write in another language. professor

 

My comment has nothing to do with your "bad english". Many people here speak bad english :P

 

It is in regards to the content.. This is a topic about the web drivers, not about how you can't get them to work.  This topic is not to educate you about your boot manager or any other fix needed outside of the web drivers. There is a bunch of nonsense going back and forth with the posts about the nvram command. As fantomas pointed out, your problems are not from the drivers at all, but instead are with clover and your inability to properly use your boards nvram space..

i just enable gtx 970 successfully on sierra for my friends.. so no problems with  your graphics cards....yes ,you can do that and try 

 

I've updated my Web Drivers to the latest GM one, and still black screen!?

I'm starting to lose my head at this point ...

 

NVRAM is consistent and has nvda_drv=1 every boot, all patches are restored (so no patches), running iMac14,2...

I wouldn't know what the cause would be at this point ...

 

Any ideas?  :rolleyes:

I've got fingers crossed here that THIS patch (GM) will at last support HDMI audio.... no problem with Graphics on my GTX 750 Ti SC (EVGA) on 3 monitors but not even a hint of audio!!!

Has the driver actually been updated even? I simply updated from PB7 and the same driver worked,,,

To answer my own question... ABSOLUTELY NOT...

driver updated for???

It's the same driver that has been in use since PB 3 or thereabouts! When will the HDMI audio fix come????

I've been trying to get this working for hours, but I cannot get my PC to keep the Nvidia driver selection. I installed with nv_Disable=1, rebooted and then set the Nvidia driver as the driver to use, rebooted with nvda_drv=1, still no luck. Telling me I have 5mb of VRAM lol. Is this happening to anyone else? I've tried a fresh install 3 times now. Tried forcing nvda_drv=1 with terminal. Gigabyte Gaming 7 mobo, w/ intel 6700k and GTX960..

The new GM driver still cannot detect my GTX 750 TI.

So bad. I can load into the system. However, when using Chrome, a lot of flickering in screen.

Guys, I just removed a lot of "off topic" posts - In my previous post, I asked you to stay focused on the main discussion.

 

All agdpfix, smbios and nvram issues have nothing to do with this thread. We already have dedicated topics for that so you can use our "research feature" to find them.

 

In order to keep this topic clean, all "off topic" posts will be deleted without warning!!!

 

I'm counting on your understanding.  ;)

This was exactly the issue I had following updates from PB5 to PB7 - simply could not get this driver to stick at all! I eventually downpaded PB7 again and made a fresh install stick. Installed a clean copy and used my existing Clover for El Capitan to boot )having moved kexts to a 10.12 folder in my case (Though "Other" will do just as well). Once I booted and installed the driver this time... I had 2 monitors working out of 3. On the next reboot 3 out of 3 and all working on this driver. Only issue though is that there is NO HDMI AUDIO!!!! But still... better than that annoying flickering and lack of graphic acceleration. I can now boot without any flags at all!

Try it! May work for you too!

I have since updated to the GM and the same driver installed prior to the update still works fine which is why I am very suspicious  about the  comment

Nvidia Web Driver - 367.10.10.05b01 has been updated to support the last macOS 10.12 GM build 16A320.

More like the post has been updated to say that the same driver we have been using since PB3 still works! Seems doubtful any work has been done on it though...

I'm afraid that's all what it is.  :(

 

And unfortunately, don't think things will change with public release (367.10.10.05f01).  :no:

Is that okay to posting / discussing about performance of driver (specially related with metal) or would be considered as off-topic as well ? I meant benchmarks  :P

Yes, of course - Reporting compatibility/improvements of the web driver with the latest macOS Sierra builds... That's what this topic is all about.   ;)

Mystifying why they'd make this beta final without addressing the issue but as you say.... may have to wit for an updated driver which I hope they are already working on and will be available on the 20th or thereabouts! They were pretty good on support for Maxwell for El Capitan!

Nvidia just added the support for the latest macOS 10.12 GM3 build 16A322.

 

The driver seems to be the same since DP4/PB3 so don't expect to see any improvement.
