  1. Hello! I am trying to upgrade Yosemite 10.10.4 to El Capitan 10.11.1 with no luck. I've been using hackintosh for quite a while now. I've never experienced any difficulties with upgrading to newer version until recently. The installation process goes all well with no problems as well as the first boot. I'm able to run all post-installation procedures (install clover bootloader, run unib... etc.). The problem begins when I install the latest Nvidia Web drivers. The Hackintosh just won't boot up and it keeps auto-restarting just before it shows the login screen (screen goes black for a few seconds and then the pc restarts). There is no kernel panic also booting in verbose mode does not show anything unusual (the web drivers seem to start up correctly). Sometimes what I am able to read out is: "previous shutdown cause: 5" but I'm not sure if this is related to a boot failure or to a previous "normal" shutdown. I've tried all sorts of things to resolve this issue from trying different combination of boot flags to deleting and reinstalling the nvidia drivers, booting into safe-mode / without kernel cache. I tried to inject Nvidia Gfx via clover bootloader but this resulted in kernel panic. The only thing that partly helped was booting with nv_disable=1 flag but then the resolution is really bad and hackintosh is practically unusable (the screen blinks to every frame when animation is being shown). Could you please help me with some suggestions how to fix this issue. My Hardware: Cpu: i7 Motherboard: dx58so2 Gpu: Nvidia GeForce 285 GTX Custom DSDT: Yes Flags that I've used: nv_disable=1/0, nvda_drv=1/0, GraphicsEnabler=Yes/no, x, npci=0x2000/0x3000, cpus=1/2/3/4, IGPEnabler=Yes, dart=0 kext-dev-mode=1, PCIRootUID=1 PS: Maybe I should also mention that I was previous using the Chimera bootloader instead of clover. Unfortunately I cannot post any boot logs because there is no log in /var/logs or /L/Logs, /S/L/Logs

    Nvidia 980 Ti Compatibility - 10.10 Yosemite

    Hey all, I have a buddy that works as the store manager of a MicroCenter and he put 2 EVGA SC 980 Ti's (Reference Cooler) aside for me and I picked them up today. As expected (since the Titan X under the same chip had no problem using Yosemite) they're compatible using the Nvidia Web (Retail) Drivers. Compared to some on this site I'm simply an amateur, however it seems to me that the drivers do need updating to optimize the cards under professional applications. For instance, in After Effects GPU settings describe it as "Nvidia Pre-Release Graphics Device". OpenCL tests in LuxMark v3.0 Ball scene (can't compare to most results on the web - as they were v2.1 which uses a diff render engine) it scored just below 29k. I will do more benchmarking once the web drivers etc are updated. Gonna send my IOReg etc off to the right people (thanks Rampage Dev!). If you're only worried about Photoshop and Youtube you'll have no issues. Just thought it was worth mentioning, and I'm just really excited that I've already got my hands on them, I'm not gonna lie. I'll be happy to answer any questions.

    Scrambled images with Maxwell's GPUs

    Hi all, I have recently bought a Titan X to replace my "good-old" GTX 780 in my machine. After reading some forums posts, I was quite confident that it would work like a charm, after installing the NVIDIA web drivers. ... and this is exactly what I did. So my current setup is the following: - OS X 10.10.3 - NVIDIA latest web drivers (346.01.02f04) - Latest CUDA driver (7.0.36) Overall, it works great. No single issue when running benchmarks applications like Unigine Valley and/or Cinebench. However, I am seeing some "scrambled images" (comparable to the one attached), mostly when browsing the web using Safari. After having matched one webpage that showcased this issue 100% of time, I exported the page in PDF. ..and guess what: The PDF also looks scrambled when opened with Preview, but not with Adobe Reader or Gmail internal PDF reader. So I am thinking about that Apple's rendering engine (maybe PDFKit ?) is using the hardware decoder from Maxwell's GPU, and this decoder is somehow not properly working with specific JPEG images (seems to be related to small pictures). My questions now are: 1. Is this common to all Maxwell's users here ? 2. Is there some way to tweak Apple's rendering engine to avoid this ?
  4. I recently installed a GTX 960 in my system running 10.10.3. Shortly after installing the new card, I started experiencing an issue in which the system would randomly close out all running applications and drop to the login screen. This was happening several times a day, and without any discernible rhyme or reason (it happened both while running graphics intense apps as well as normal system operation). Based on my review of the logs, it looks like the WindowServer process was crashing, with numerous references to both the OS X and nVidia drivers in the crash logs. Last night I put my old GTX 650 card back in the system and uninstalled the nVidia web drivers (I was running the latest version - 346.01.02f03). I have yet to experience the issue again, leading me to believe that it was probably related to the nVidia web drivers. Has anyone else experienced the same thing? I would really like to use the GTX 960 in my system, but the sporadic logouts are definitely a deal-breaker. Any thoughts or insight would be greatly appreciated!
  5. I am having problems with my Gigabyte Gtx 970 getting detected by Yosemite install. I have tried too many methods here and there to make it work and because I am a beginner and learning new things with each combination, I am repetitively failing to make that happen. So here are few things I did which are not working as expected: 1) I installed the appropriate drivers and tried to boot up with loading nvidia drivers from preferences center but that didn't worked. 2) I tried injectEDID, InjectNvidia and LoadVideoBios from clover bootloader option and also with the flag kext-dev-mode=1 but it failed to work. In 'about mac' it is showing gtx 970 "0"mb vram. Monitor works so slow that I can distinctly see each buffer and screen refresh every time. 3) I used additional boot flag nvda_drv=1 to make it detect the VRAM of the GPU but after the apple logo, monitor went black showing "NO SIGNAL" error where I have turn off the power supply to restart the system. Please would anyone guide me to make my 970 work with Yosemite.
  6. Installing Security Update 2014-002 (04-22-2014) reverts back to the original vanilla mach_kernel. Copy over the vanilla mach_kernel on the root of the system with the patched version here. You'll also have to update NVIDIA Web Retail Drivers 331.01.01f04 here for graphics to still work. Also download CUDA 6.0.37 here.
