    No graphics / USB / Audio after wake

    Great news! When new release will be available for download?
  2. Will this code help? sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist ProgramArguments -array-add -DisableSleepProxyClient
  3. I haven't got time to dig in more deep but I suspect new NVIDIA drivers for High Sierra are a bit different. They might have changed underlying architecture, which actually might be good news. It's just causes issues if you have old fixing drivers fo fixing Nvidia. Seems that NVIDIA doesn't relay anymore only on NVRAM, which might be good for various screnarios. But I haven't got time to dig deeper. I had same issue. Its drivers issue. I replaced some drivers and issue solved. Make sure you have latest drivers and only really only drivers you really need.
  4. Why so complex approach by creation of custom Entries to Hide Preboot and Recovery APFS Volumes with Clover Configurator? You can just add Preboot into Hide Volume's section. Otherwise of course good tutorial
  5. I guess that your High Sierra installation isn't 100% healthy. Why you have NullCPUPowerManagement? GenericUSBXHCI? I suspect that you have to get more cleaner installation of High Sierra on your comp first.
  6. Great. I did some extra digging and figured out what caused reboot of comp on my case. This issue depends at versions of used kexts. Combination below can cause kernel panics as latest versions of NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext already includes fixes provided by NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext. Lilu.kext NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext So use only latest (Do not use NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext with them) Lilu.kext (>=1.20) NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext (>=1.20) And boot flag -ngfxof should you help to disable NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext if needed.
  7. Great news. I did some digging and on my case NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext causes reboots with latest NVIDIA Web Driver. Btw they just released a new version of this kext. According to NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext documentation boot flag -ngfxof should avoid this kext to load if you have it installed. This might be helpful if NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext prevents you to get into High Sierra GUI. fabiosun, if I understand correctly removing NVDAStartupWeb.kext was enough to get back into High Sierra GUI
  8. Thank you! Please note that on my case this did not work. Sometimes we are used to some solutions but if circumstances change those might not work at all. So just for case some information about my system: Clover 4243 High Sierra 10.13 (17A405) NVIDIA Web Driver 378. According to some other web resources it's enough to remove NVDAStartupWeb.kext from /Library/Extensions to get back into GUI. I used approach described above, so NVDAStartupWeb.kext was removed alongside with other NVIDIA Web Driver kexts. So there is no sometimes 100% right or wrong way, there is just a way to get around Anyway thank you very much for your effort to help and I believe on some cases those suggestions you offered, might work very great. On case of kernel panics those do not. So my guide was provided for people who are trying to use standard methods but still does not get into High Sierra GUI. But I repeat that on my case the problem was related to not handling all kexts properly before upgrading into High Sierra. I thought that upgrade to High Sierra goes as I have upgraded earlier from 10.12.x into newer 10.12.x. So I suspect that NVIDIA have made some changes in their drivers as well.
  9. Great suggestion and might work for someone. On my case the only way to get into GUI was to remove Nvidia web drivers. Please note that clover deals with NVRAM issues, but system will try to load installed kexts in any case, and if those conflict with other kexts, then you might get kernel panic etc. So removing Nvidia web rivers might be the only solution on some cases!
  10. Hi! Thank you for suggestion, but on my case this didn't help me at all, I was unable to get into High Sierra GUI, whatever I tried. So to remove Nvidia web drivers via Recovery mode was the only way to get back into GUI! But yous solution might work for someone, but did not on my case. I have used several times nv_disable=1 when updated Sierra but on this case on High Sierra this didn't work! The real cause of problems was not dealing properly with kexts before upgrading into High Sierra. So cleaning up kexts is mandatory before upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra.
  11. I had issues with Nvidia Web Driver for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4 GB graphics, which caused to system fail to load High Sierra. I used the latest relevant driver at the moment ( (17A405) 378. but without any luck to get into High Sierra after installation. So I removed it via Recovery mode and did clean install by following procedure described below. How to recover your system if failed? Boot your machine into recovery mode and run these commands below. Replace HDD with your own name of High Sierra partition. cd /Volumes/HDD/System/Library/Extensions/rm -R GeF*.* touch /Volumes/HDD/System/Library/Extensions/ cd /Volumes/HDD/Library/Extensions/ rm -R GeF*.* NVDA*.* touch /Volumes/HDD/Library/Extensions/ reboot How to install Nvidia Web Driver (On my case for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4 GB graphics) Download Nvidia Web Driver which is relevant to your system. (10.13 (17A365) 378. (17A405) 378. Download latest Lilu.kext (>=1.20) and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext (>=1.20) Mount EFI partition of your Clover Clean all unneeded or outdated kexts from /Library/Extension, /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other, /System/Library/Extension etc. (HWSensors, lilu.kext, NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext, NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext etc) Edit Colver configuration file, set SIP related setting CsrActiveConfig to 0x00 Remove any NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext if present and install the most latest Lilu.kext (>=1.20) and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext (>=1.20) Reboot your computer Mount EFI partition of your Clover Edit Colver configuration file, set SIP related setting CsrActiveConfig to 0x67 Do not reboot yet! Install Nvidia Web Driver and reboot as installer demands. Install other kexts which might be relevant for your system. You should have working High Sierra with latest Nvidia Web Drivers now! How to fix CUDA (9.0.197) If you want to use CUDA you might need to patch it to work with current Nvidia drivers, as CUDA Framework is prepared to read only specific version of the GPU Drivers, and with the last update at the moment, it doesn't recognise the installed version. Check the driver version from CUDA preference panel (for example GPU Driver Version: 10.25.28 378. Go to /Library/Frameworks/CUDA.framework/Versions/A/Libraries Find closest dylib match to your driver version, on my case for 378. and duplicate it. Rename duplicated file, on my case libcuda_378.05.05.25_mercury copy.dylib into libcuda_378.10.10.10_mercury.dylib. Copy /Library/Frameworks/CUDA.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Info.plist on yourDdesktop Add related lines at the end of NVDAResmanVersions section <key>378.10.10.10</key> <string>378.10.10.10</string> Replace /Library/Frameworks/CUDA.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Info.plist with an updated file. run these commands on terminal: sudo kextunload -b com.nvidia.CUDA sudo kextload -b com.nvidia.CUDA Voila, you should have CUDA working now. Update Few notes about my system: Software: Clover 4243 (SMBIOS iMac17,1) High Sierra 10.13 (17A405) NVIDIA Web Driver 378. Hardware Z170X-UD5 TH i7-6700K NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4 GB graphics 2133 MHz DDR4 16GB module Please read this too: #574

    CUDA SUPPORT in Sierra

    Very weird:
  13. Thank you, Current UHC1 to EH0? Current EH0 toUHC1?
  14. Thank you! Seems that something is wrong. I have panic with this DSDT.
