The new driver solved the screen crash I mention earlier.

Thanks a lot.

I had a completely working system and had the web driver working in DP2 from the posts above. Once I installed the new b07 build today, I get a endless reboot loop after initial restart. Can only boot with nv_disable=1 - can't boot with -x, -f, or -F and "-v debug=yes" gives me no useful information. It stops at different places every time, no panic, nothing I can read that indicates what is causing the reboot. There does seem to be a lot of entires containing 80211, not sure if that is normal or not, even if it isn't what would that have to do with the Nvidia web drivers?

 

Anyone have any ideas? I would post the output of verbose but my first attempt to do so didn't work correctly so if that would help, let me know and I can keep trying (a few tips on getting that text would be helpful too).

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

same problem as above, it seems like the problem is that the web driver is not being loaded, NVDAStartupWeb:official is shown during boot. I'm using nvda_drv=1 as boot argument (this works fine for El Capitan) but for some reason it's being ignored in Sierra. Any suggestion to force web driver load?

 

Similar configuration that jsimpson746, but with 750Ti

 

 

Cheers

 

 

Sorted, I had to set manually nvda_drv=1 in the nvram, hope it helps.

There seems to be an updated driver, I just ran the updater app and found 367.05.10.05b07

Try running

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

Worked for me with my 970

 

Edit: scratch that, it worked for 2 reboots now I'm back to black screens without nv_disable :\

edit2: well, after running the command a few more times it does seem to have worked. I think there might be a kernel cache issue in the public beta and dev preview 2

^try. it took a few attempts but it boots up fine every time now

GTX 970

Οκ guys i found my solution

instal clover from here > http://www.insanelym...ial-edition-v3/

and chose two consecutive times (with restart) to use webdrivers from nVidia driver manager.

To get it working I enabled clover nvram emulator (emu variable) and installed startup rc scripts to enable the driver.Then select Nvidia Web-driver from menu bar applet and reboot

 

Don't know if it's a clover issue a difference in the way Nvidia detects which driver is active ,be it OS X default or web.

So I tried every method described below my post and have got none of them to work. I seem to have tried every combination of those and still anytime I boot without nv_disable=1 I get stuck in a reboot loop.

 

I am assuming that enabling nvram emulator in cover is the "EmuVariableUefi" driver under "Drivers UEFI 64 BIT" - On the install drivers screen, I have the following installed;

EmuVariableUefi

OsxAptioFix2Drv

VBoxHfs

And under extra drivers, OsxFatBinaryDrv UEFI

 

Boot Flags are just dart=0 and nada_drv=1, of course that isn't working causing the reboot loop

 

I have tried both MacPro 6,1 and iMac14,1 (which was working great before this)

 

Please let me know if anyone has any ideas....

When trying to 

 

 

set manually nvda_drv=1 in the nvram

I used 'sudo nvram boot-args="nvda_drv=1"' and the response I get is "nvram: Error setting variable - 'boot-args': (iokit/common) general error"

 

I have tested the nvram and confirmed values, even boot arguments I write like "-v", are retained after reboot. Though, when I rebooted it did not boot in verbose mode. So I am not sure even finding a way to add nada_drv=1 to my nvram is going to help if it is ignoring it. 

 

Why all of a sudden is the nvda flag in clover not enough for macOS? Is there a different flag I can try to force it to use the web drivers?

Ok I was able to get it to work. First thing I had to do was uninstall "EmuVariableUefi" in clover. After reboot, I was able to see the hidden file "NVRAM.plist" in the root OS directory, duplicate, edit, delete original, and replace with edited plist to include boot-arg "nvda_drv=1". Once I switched back my SMBIOS to iMac 17,1 booted up fine with the web drivers working!! Had to double check that my board id was still set to none in the graphic policy kext as well, but it was.

 

Also, I uninstalled the web drivers in the system preference pane and reinstalled during this process so that also could have helped. 

 

So now I am booting without any bootflags in clover, everything seems fine even without "dart=0" and the web driver utility is actually telling me it is using web drivers (check box next to it) which it never had done that before, so that made me happy.....haha

 

Thanks everyone for your posts as it all helped me tremdously in finally finding this solution.

Guys, I'm getting reboots when trying to boot with the Nvidia driver on a GTX 950.

 

It used to work with DP1. Then I updated to DP2, I thought it's the driver. So now I also updated the driver, and I got the same issue: reboot on second stage boot, when booting with nvda_drv=1. The only way I can boot right now, is with nv_disable=1. But, of course, that denies the purpose of having the Nvidia driver installed in the first place.

 

Any idea what's wrong here? Am I missing something?

I had the same problem, but now with latest Nvidia Web Driver - 367.05.10.05b07 it is Ok.

and Activate manually the Webdriver usage in Configuration panel

 

Hope this helps

Well, I do have that driver version. And that's exactly what I can't seem to be able to do: activate it.

 

I mean, I do activate it, it requires restart, and after restart, it goes into restart again (the issue described in my previous post). I think the driver doesn't get activated, for some reason. Just can't pin point the reason.

I have the same problem with my 980 but if I just reboot 1 or 2 times the driver will load and everything is fine.

The only boot argument I am using is nvda_drv=1

Do you have the variable nvda_drv 1 defined in your nvram? It seems like the bootarg option is no longer recognised by the web driver. Type sudo nvram nvda_drv=1 in the console and check that the line nvda_drv 1 appears in you nvram (sudo nvram -p) and that it is persistent between boots. boot-args nvda_drv=1 seems like it is being ignored by the web driver.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Cheers,
