Thanx Hareron it's work.

 

But i got a really bad problem after the first reboot, my SSD drive boot was destroy. I had to restart in CMD+R mode then enter anothers command line to get it back to boot:)

 

to avoid this problem i should have to simply disable the TRIM!! i forgot that:)

 

Thanx

Awesome, glad it worked for you. Please post the commands you entered to get your SSD to boot just in case anyone else runs into the same issue. Cheers

it's in french but easy to understand (the important things are the commande line)

 

  1. 1. Démarrer sur la partition de restauration d'OS X en pressant les touches Commande + R
  2. 2. Ouvrez le Terminal
  3. 3. Tapez cette commande : nvram boot-args. Si la réponse est « kext-dev-mode=1 », vous pouvez sauter à l'étape 6, sinon continuez dans l'ordre
  4. 4. Tapez cette commande : nvram boot-args=kext-dev-mode=1
  5. 5. Redémarrez sur la partition de restauration encore une fois
  6. 6. Ouvrez le Terminal et tapez ces commandes en remplaçant "XXX" par le nom de votre partition (les guillemets doivent être présents) :
    • cd "/Volumes/XXX"
    • touch System/Library/Extensions
    • kextcache -prelinked-kernel System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache -K System/Library/Kernels/kernel System/Library/Extensions
  7. 7. Attendez jusqu'à ce que l'opération se termine (5 à 10 minutes) et redémarrez.

I have some problems after the Security update. Installed the new 14F2009 Webdriver but still have no acceleration.

 

Using an GTX Titan Black under Yosemite, boot loader is clover and also added NvidiaWeb to my config.plist because I thought that it is now on all new drivers not only Sierra but without any luck. 

System Definition is MacPro 6,1 also tried to run AGDPFix again and changed also to other system definitions but still no luck. 

 

Anyone any idea?

 

EDIT: FIXED IT!

The AppleGraphicsControl.kext file was broken after the update, found an untouched one which I've added to the Extensions folder and repatched it again with AGDPFix.

...in my installation there is no NVDAStartupWeb.kext to alter.... only NVDAStartup.kext...so I'm a little confused...have the drivers changed?

There is no NVDAStartupWeb.kext for Yosemite or Mavericks. This one only exists in El Capitan/Sierra.

 

But the trick is the same for NVDAStartup.kext. Just edit this part of the info.plist :

<key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
<string>14F</string>

You must fix permissions and rebuild cache : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/432-insanelyrepairpermission/

 

Or even better, use this tool : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/474-nvidia%C2%AE-webdriver-updaterapp/


[EDIT]

 

Not sure NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app 1.5 will work on Yosemite :unsure:.
