Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post this but it relates to the driver issue.

I have a MacPro Early 2009 3.2ghz 32gb ram (2x 16gb modules, 2 open memory slots).

It have 3 different drives, OS X 10.11.6, Windows 7 and Windows 10.
I replaced the ATI 5770 with the NVDIA 980. I didn’t flash it.  I moved the stock GT120 up one slot.
The new card works fine in MacOSX with the NVIDIA web driver 346.03.15f02 build 15G31 that

I found out about from this forum post but on both Windows nothing.  In Windows I installed version

341.95 but still nothing. windows driver update can’t activate the card so I’m left with a black screen.

Is there a specialized driver for Windows 7 or 10 like the Mac driver that I need to install instead?

Your help would be most appreciated.

cheers,
Lawrence

In Windows you should get video output even without a driver installed. It would be basic 1024x768 output but it is enough to install the drivers if Windows doesn't do it for you after a few mins.

Apple Security Update 2016-001 for 10.11.6 breaks NVIDIA web drivers (MP 5,1/GTX 970, but seems to be widespread) -- recommend waiting for driver update unless you're up to adding the new OS build to the plist file, etc.

 

[EDIT: reverting to WebDriver-346.03.15b01 worked]

Confirmed WebDriver 346.03.15b01 is working on my system after security update 2016-001 for 10.11.6 broke my NVIDIA web driver. For anyone who doesn't know, there is a download link for the installer for this on the first post in this thread. I have temporarily disabled the automatic update feature of my NVIDIA updater control panel until a new version of the web driver is available for this build.

I'm on 10.11.6 with with MacPro5,1 SMBIOS and the default OSX driver is working for my gtx 970. 

 

It wasn't working before, and I had to use the nvidia web driver. 

So I backed up to a time machine and installed OS Sierra DP, and installed the web driver beta 10.12, of course. The sound wasn't working so I reinstalled 10.11.6 and restored from that time machine back up earlier. And Now I just noticed the nvidia menu bar and preferences pane shows that i'm using the default OS X drivers. Can anyone explain this?

After updating to the latest Nvidia Web Drivers, I have black screen after the apple logo. GTX 960 on a iMac 13,1 SMBIOS. It worked with 15b01 drivers. I tried to go back to 15b01, but now it still shows black screen. I have nvda_drv=1 on my config.plist. 

 

Any help?

Thanks in advance for the reply!

You have to use new nvidia boot argument with Clover bootloader:

  • Boot with nv_disable=1
  • Remove nvda_drv=1 from your config.plist and add the new:
    <key>NvidiaWeb</key>
    <true/>
    To System parameters
  • Make sure your board id is set to "none" in 
    /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  • Run:
    sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
    sudo kextcache -system-caches

    sudo kextcache -system-caches

 

 

Unfortunately it doesn't work for me.

 

I had no board id lines on my AppleGraphicsControl. kext info.plist.

 

At every reboot, I have no high resolution (video card is not recognized and it shows 6mb of RAM) and the Nvidia panel in the upper right corner always shows "OS X default drivers".

 

I'm running El Capitan on my main machine.

Have you tried iMac 14,2 SMBIOS?

 

No, I still haven't tried. But it's strange because it worked fine with SMBIOS 13,1 until I updated webdrivers and Clover to the latest release.

Tried with different SMBIOS, same results.

in your config.plist put nvda-drv=1 and nvidiaweb

Restart

Put web driver in prefs system/ web driver manager

Restart

this should be good

Have you disable your IGPU in bios?

 

I just installed the new Clover bootloader and the new Nvidia Web Drivers. I didn't changed nothing more. I had a working El Capitan 10.11.6 before these two updates.

So I suggest you to install the drivers web with http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/474-nvidia®-webdriver-updaterapp/  and patched with the version of the OS

      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
      Memory: 4x8 GB HyperX Predator, 3000 MHz Cl15

      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?
