New Nvidia Retail Driver Install Solution

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I have read my suggestiion in ponit of adding the system ID in the Asus G73SW thread. I have tried to install with 10 9.3 with the clover install method. I always have gotten a black screen. Sleep trick did not work, wakeup again with black screen. This I have tried to install with the SMBios of MBP 8,3, a model with AMD Gfx.

 

Then I have tried an chameleon install of 10 9.3 with adding the systemboard ID in the info.plist of AppleGraphicsDeviicePolicy.kext. Then all went fine, without the black screen issue.

 

For myself it looks like, that Apple has included the GFX handling of nVidia in the AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext to get managed only by nVidia drivers.

 

All none nVida Apple devices seem to be banned from nVidia gfx support with 10 9.3. With none Nvidia models the corresponding drivers get  not dedected, except one is adding the systemboard ID to the above mentioned info plist. Without that, one get black screen because of not correct loaded nVidia drivers at boot time.

 

You should have a look after updating to 10 9.3 in IORegestryExplorer at the end of the nVidia gfx part. There is a new entry NVDC, corresponding the AppleGraphicsDeviceControlClient. If you see there red canceled lines you need to install a LegacyAGPM.kext with your systemboard and gfxcard ID and the other usual entries to get your card fully working.

 

Have fun.

Thanks for your advice. I've take a look at the IORegestryExplorer and the AppleGraphicsDeviceControlClient line is not red, so it seems to be good...

Change your model to something like macpro3,1 then install. Revert it after

Hi,

 

I'm back here with the same issue (Blank screen probleme).

I've updated to OSX 10.9.4, installed new Nvidia drivers and Cuda, and it was fine.

But if I change something into the system, like enabling SSD Trim or installing audio kext, the issue is back again and I've got to boot with nv_disable=1.

I've already tried to uninstall and re install web drivers but the issue is still here....

any idea ?

Many Thanks 

 

Tom

Rampage Dev: Could this driver fix the black screen problem on the old Vaio F11?  It has a GT330M and a proprietary Sony power management chip... QE only works on external screen, even in OSX 10.9.4.

 

Should I try this nvidia web driver + nvram addon (btw. is it available for clover, too) in OSX 10.9.4?

 

What do you think?

      Hi, i recently set up High Sierra on my AMD computer with the help of the amdosx community (i actually used an installer just to confirm that something would work in the first place before i spend hours for nothing, i can and could have downloaded High Sierra the "legal" way).
      However the graphicscard is recognized properly, the 6gig are recognized and i have no artifacts and no screen tearing with the official nvidia webdriver,
      but unfortunally, dark colors have horizontal dark stripes in them and specific bright colors like on left bar of system windows such as settings do flicker like low fps.

      I only used the clover on the flash drive for now and i'd like if it's worth digging deeper of if i should just forget about it as it is a common nvidia problem on macOS.
      Would be amazing to know.
       
      Closer machine infos:
      * High Sierra (misses a recent minor patch as my network is veeeery slow and i got this nvidia issue anyway so i mainly jumped back to linux)
      * AMD fx8350
      * Asus Sabertooth 990fx Ref. 2.0
      * NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

      I recently set up my hackintosh. Everything else works fine, the only issue is my monitor cannot come back from sleep.
      Symptom: 
      If I click the "sleep" menu manually, the system goes to sleep fine. After the system sleeps for a while (more than a few mins, I guess it's called "deep sleep"), when I try to wake it up, the monitor wakes up but stays black screen. The machine is on. If I leave the system to time out and sleep by itself, only the monitor goes off; when I try to wake it up, same symptom as above.
      What I have tried (but none worked):
      additional boot flag: ngfxpatch=pikera additional boot flag: darkwake = 0 Customize EDID
      Specs:
      Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77x-UD5H BIOS: F16j CPU: Ivy Bridge i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz (quad core) Graphics: Nvidia GTX 1050 Monitor: Dell P2715Q @ 4k / 60Hz, Display Port Wifi / Bluetooth: BCM94360CS with PCIE Onboard GPU: disabled OS: High Sierra 10.13.3
      Please see attached for following files:

      I am looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks.

      When I installed 10.13.4 I tried to boot macOS with iGPU enabled only in BIOS (without injecting and kexts, HD 4600) and my daily use dGPU (GTX 750 Ti, injected in config and web drivers enabled) and everything works fine, but it boots slower. There is a chance to make fully working dGPU and iGPU at one time? With kexts, injects, et cetera? Something like dGPU as eGPU and iGPU as main GPU? I don't want to break my build, so I am asking you before trying it.
      My computer:
      MOBO: Gigabyte P85-D3
      GPU: Gigabyte GTX 750 Ti Windforce (2GB VRAM)
      CPU: i5-4670
      RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
      Audio: ALC887
      Ethernet: Realtek RTL 8111
      Drives: SSD Goodram 240GB and HDD 1TB.

      Could you please help me enable the VGA port on the GT710 in 10.9.5 13F34 ? 
      It is currently booting fine through its HDMI port, web driver 334.0103f01 and config.plist arguments checked: Verbose (-v), npci=0x2000, dart=0, nvda_drv=1
      The nvidia GT710 works fine through its VGA port and web drivers on a friend's Mac Pro 3,1
      I must soon return this borrowed HDMI monitor, mine only has a VGA port so I'd appreciate your input.
