Hi, anyone got NvidiaWeb drivers loaded with Sierra final?
Seems that nvda_drv=1 not working anymore
Clover has some changes and use new way to get it working
Got it fixed using the nvram ... dlib (in /Extra/modules) plus the NvramFile.kext (in /L/E) and setting sudo nvram nvda_drv=1.
Actually, that's not really true. Mac, or should I say; BSD, provides a complete backup solution that will backup everything -- yes; even your "boot", as well as the "EFI" partition. Please have a look at dump, and restore eg; man dump, or man restore.
For example, I have only one single hard drive on my AMD hackintosh. From a terminal window, if I issuels /dev/ | grep disk
it returnsdisk0 disk0s1 disk0s2 rdisk0 rdisk0s1 rdisk0s2
The only ones I'm interested in are those that begin with disk, which I can dump to an external USB drive, or another interal drive, if I have another one available. By simply booting to single user mode. I can then later either restore these partitions, or simply restore them to an entirely different disk, effectively cloning the original installation. Please also see the mount command, as it will also be a necessary part of the operation.
If I can find the time, I'll write an entire dump && restore session. It's an amazingly short, and simple operation.
All the best to you.
Hi Chris. You confirm what I said: not bootloader related, plus the "boot" file is not what we were talking about, that is the easy part and also Carbon Copy Cloner is able to backup it (since is only a file on the filesystem)..
so you have to re-write the partition boot sector and the mbr. That was the problem, and they cannot be transplanted on any other disk w/o destroy the existing partition map on the destination:
in fact you can use dd (see man dd), to make a clone of any disk (to restore the backup you have to destroy everythings..) but the disk will be bootable also.
and If you are able to boot into single user mode, why not log-in instead and reinstall it with the package installer that is more easy?
