Nvidia Web Driver updates for El Capitan (UPDATE 07/11/2018)

716 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm showing 'NVIDIA Chip Model 3 MB' as the name of my graphics card in "About This Mac" after updating to 10.11.5 on rig #1 in my sig. I installed v346.03.10f01 first and got no acceleration so I uninstalled it, and installed v346.03.10b01 second and still get no acceleration. Anyone else having this issue? This has never been a problem for me in Yosemite. I am using Clover bootloader as well. Any helpful advice is welcome. Thanks in advance.

Well..

 

Here goes nothing. upgrading to 10.11.5 with dual 980TI ( and hoping Final Cut Pro X works )

Any chance you have nvidia graphics injection enabled? It's not needed for the 680 and enabling it can cause this issue.

FWIW, running 10.11.5 with a (single) 970 and FCPX works fine (still has a few weird glitches, like the share stops working after a while, but restarting the app fixes it–been doing this for a long time so not a 10.11.5 issue at all, and easy enough to workaround for now).

After racking my nerves over this issue, the final idea I had to solve this issue was to downgrade to 10.11.0 and then and do a direct upgrade to 10.11.5. Graphic acceleration works OOB, removed NVIDIA web drivers. Everything is all peachy  :thumbsup_anim:

Quick question: I recently installed a GeForce GTX 750 Ti as the only graphics card in my original Mac Pro 4,1 and installed the NVidia Web drivers. All works, running 10.11.4 and 06f01.

I thought, that I should update the Web Driver BEFORE updating the OS to 10.11.5, but the new Web Driver 10f01 requires already the new OS.

I fear, that when I update the OS first, that I have a blank screen and need to switch graphics cards to the old ATI, just to update the web driver... I have not dared to switch to the "OS X Default Graphics Driver"...

 

What is the recommended way of proceeding?

 

Thank you very much!

Use NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app 1.4 to download the correct version of webddrivers. It will patch the installer to remove SMBios and OS version check so you'll be able to install them before updating to OS X 10.11.5 :).

Thank you, polyzargone!

 

I tried it, but it says, there is no newer version available. I do not seem to be able to direct the check to the already downloaded package, there is nothing like that in the menu or GUI... :-( Seems my only choice is to wait for the updated driver to appear in the location where this program looks at...

 

Thank you a lot for pointing me to this updater. This is definitely the way to go in the future...

Makes sense since the NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app 1.4 will check what's your current OS X version is.

 

Anyway, you could download the correct webdrivers from post #1 then use this little AppleScript app to remove both SMBios & OS X version checks.

Thank you, polyzargone!

Thanks for your help!

Hm, I just tried that and this procedure failed. At the end of the install the NVidia Driver told me it switched the settings back to the Default OS X Driver since the new driver is not compatible with the currently installed OS version and told me to reboot. Knowing that I would have a black screen after reboot, I installed the 10.11.5 update and rebooted. I got that black screen on DP and a white screen on HDMI.

 

I still can ssh into the machine. Does anyone know a command line way to switch the graphics driver to the NVidia Web Driver, away from the Default OS Driver?

 

Thank you all!

Check nvram with this :

 

 

nvram -p

 

You should have boot-args="nvda_drv=1" in it. If not, type this then reboot :

 

 

sudo nvram boot-args="nvda_drv=1"

Hey polyzargone!

 

Thank you for your help - it worked like a charm - I am back in the game!

 

I'll make a KB article for myself for this procedure! Brilliant stuff!

Web Driver - 346.03.10f01 works fine on 10.11.6 after editing NVDAStartupWeb.kext to 15G :

 

 

I left the hackintosh scene for a while, can you explain me how you bypassed version check in the .pkg installer please?

It says no driver found for my build: 15G7b, i believe it's the  10.11.6 Public Beta 1

 

But anyways i found a workaround

pkgutil --expand WebDriver-346.03.10f01.pkg test.unpkg

Then i edited the script in the file: Distribution 

 

lines: 40-41

			var supportedOSVer = "10.11.6";
   	 		var supportedOSBuildVer = "15G7b";

Then:

pkgutil --flatten test.unpkg/ fixed.pkg

Now the version check pass and i can install it

 

Then i patched the build number using your app

 

I'll reboot now, hopefully it'll work

It worked :D

Here show the latest available :P (because not already installed)

BTW always forgot that we have not yet shared the 1.5 version that can download all old builds for the current OS, if anyone is intrested:NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater_v1.5_Beta.zip

So when icoming beta 2 of 10.11.6 will comes (and no web drivers available) you will be ready with a total automated process  :wink_anim:

      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
      MaLd0n for DSDT Patches (HUGE SHOUTOUT) Original Kext Authors Clover Team Finished!

      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?
       
      CPU: AMD Ryzen 2700X
      MB: Gigabyte Aorus X470 Ultra Gaming

      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?
