Hi, I have a notebook ASUS N56JR. I have installed with success El Capitan 10.11.3. All Working but I have only a problem with kext of my dedicated gpu (GTX 760M). How can installed

driver with success? I tried without success.. Help me please.

P.s I must boot with nv_disable=1 if notebook reboot.

no way to get optimus prime working under OS X neither with web drivers. 

mmh, is possible... but this depend by the bios: if you can disable the IGPU you can, otherwise no. Or the bios can be patched to unlok advances menu and then after, play with internal-discrete grhaphics setting. 

The second option is a big risk in a laptop..

we're talking about laptop - you simply can't.

 

the optimus feature requires integrated gpu (switching feature) - no recent laptops have this option enabled in bios (uefi) for a good reason.

 

now you can have recourse on a patched bios - I did it for my laptop aspire E1-771G... I have this option enabled but if I disable intel gpu, my laptop can no longer boot.

Right, in an Optimus configuration, the discrete GPU has no physical connection to the display.  The display is always driven by the integrated GPU.

Who say that? The wire is the gpu soldered in the CPU die...

My Notebook has NVIDIA enabled, drivers loaded.... simply the Display is not connected (ACPI) related.

@Micky1979, fantomas1

I did not understand much. So there is no way to properly install the nvidia WebDriver in my laptop ASUS N56JR without pach bios? Perhaps, it can be a problem setting the DSDT or config.plist? thank you!

Optimus works by driving all displays via the Intel iGPU.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia_Optimus

 

 

Optimus avoids usage of a hardware multiplexer and prevents glitches associated with changing the display driver from IGP to GPU by transferring the display surface from the GPU frame buffer over the PCI Express bus to the main memory-based framebuffer used by the IGP. The Optimus Copy Engine is a new alternative to traditional DMA transfers between the GPU framebuffer memory and main memory used by the IGP.

 

Anything rendered by the discrete GPU is transferred across the PCIe bus and displayed via the iGPU.  The NVIDIA drivers on OS X don't support this (yet?) so that's why the discrete GPU doesn't work on Optimus laptops running on OS X.

Sorry Asgorath, but if you look better on what have you wrote, is not Optimus that does not have phisycal connection, simply avoid to use multiplexer   :whistle:

Since Sandy bridge comes out PCIe Bus is connected to the NorthBringe (nothing new), the NorthBringe is embedded directly in the CPU and that have an integrated GPU... how can't be a connection??

Linux use bbswitch (Bumblebee project)  to switch GPUs and as I said use ACPI calls, explained here:  https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bbswitch.

Then, I agreed that the bios does not allow to switch GPU by default, is difficult to patch, is a risk, but as demostrated by @wartomato is possible. In a hack only a driver is missing.

PCIe bus != display connection.  My point is that Optimus configurations have no direct connection between the display output of the discrete GPU and either the laptop's internal screen or the external display connector.  The integrated GPU is solely responsible for driving the displays, the discrete GPU cannot do that.  That's what I mean by "no physical connection".  In order for the frames rendered on the discrete GPU to be shown on screen, they have to be transferred back across the PCIe bus so the integrated GPU can send them out to the display.

PCIe bus != display connection.

off course, display connection = ACPI related,  as for any other drivers in OSX that populate the Platform expert. Reconnecting the speech earlier, discrete cards with Optimus technology can work in OSX as demonstrated by @wartomato, it's just another hack. Drivers in OSX are ready to go, like the Web variant ones. I mean, no other things matter..I hope that we were talking about this

Bug: "Counter Strike: Global Offensive" doesn't work, i get "Failed to create OpenGL device!" error

 

 

 

Do you think NVIDIA will add Vulkan support in their web driver?

new web driver for 10.11.3 is done

346.03.05f02

 

So, I have been sticking to 10.11.3 and the drivers before this one. Since Final Cut Pro X is working for me (Slowly) but its working.

 

I just saw a new driver pop-up in 10.11.3 asking to upgrade - I am nervous to because I don't want to break Final Cut. 

 

Anyone on here tested? I saw someone write above its broken on 10.11.4 ( Not sure how they fix it / than break )

 

Anyone here can send Nvidia some logs or anything? Is anyone on here a registered Nvidia dev? or are we just getting these Beta Links from "places"

 

Thanks All

For me, FCPX works very well

I have also done the test BryceX, 17.3 seconds

Everything is fine, I'm fine

Thanks for the info. I shall update the drivers!

 

Hopefully they have this fixed in 10.11.4 (When its official) because I heard its broken on 10.11.4 (Final Cut Pro X)

      This build is compatible up to Big Sur Beta
      Now Compatible with macOS 11 Please leave feedback with issues or w/o Comitted to Updating up to OS 11 Latest Release Notes
      Fixed Bluetooth and Wifi Stability Issues Improved Preformance and Power Managements Can Provide Files for Display Overrides Additional Patches for 4K Display updated for Big Sur if using unsupported wifi card disable it in bios use config.plist FIXED SLEEP WAKE BUG Exact same functionality as Catalina What Works / Does Not
      Everything works minus in-built mic Some displays may be detected as 40hz (working on fix) Notes
      Never tested USB C over Display Output, everything else works flawlessly USB devices eject on sleep (not really an issue) POST
      run sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 If no mouse, install all voodoo kexts using Kext Utility Description
      This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies. You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files. This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other. BIOS Setup
      Disable Secure Boot INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)
      Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup. To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete. You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw Boot Entry Setup
      Due to the fact this BIOS is locked down pretty heavily, reccomended to use Windows to find a free tool to add UEFI boot entries Messages and Facetime
      Gnerate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial) This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of external recourses, or you can contact me for support. Headphones and Audio
      All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio no internal mic Credits

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?

      Greetings!
       
      So I managed to get a Catalina 10.15 vm up and running in ESXi 6.7u2.
      When I try to install Catalina updates, however, it goes to the Apple logo, status bar moving ever so slightly, reboots again and this time hangs on the Apple logo.  To fix this, I either remove or disable "Mac OS" as an option in the bootloader. Is there a way to get these updates to install? 
       
      In the meantime...
       
      I instead of restarting Catalina after choosing to update it, I shutdown the guest.  After a restart it SEEMED to update with the time duration countdown.
       
      Prior to this I did run disk utility and checked Untitled and Untitled-Data for errors (I don't think it found any).
       
      So I just logged back onto the VM and the version is still 10.15 and NOT 10.15.2 as hoped. So weird.
       
      Any ideas?
