New Nvidia Retail Driver Install Solution

87 posts in this topic

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 ?

I am using the clover setup and the GTX650 runs on the native drivers. My smbios is 14,2 imac would I be able to run the web drivers? I currently have an issue with XBMC crashing and it is linked with nvidiaOpengl .

 

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?
