You can prevent problem like that by faking build version to just 15G instead of full build number.

The trick applies to any OS X/macOS version BTW :).

I know, I've been doing that constantly :D For some reason the WebDriver updater doesn't work for me anymore, so I need to rely on MacKextLight to edit the build version and KextUtility to rebuild caches (which also removes some bootargs despite it's config)

That's just what I was referring to. It downloads all right, but patching the driver results in spinning beachball... MKL lets one to edit plist easily inside the kext and makes sure the permissions are set correctly.

Can you give me a patched NVDAStartupWeb.kext by NVIDIA Web Drivers Updater.app? thanks

It never produces one nowadays, but I'll need to see about that after I've installed the security update...

So i would change the NVDAStartupWeb.kext .plist by hand! I always do that with an .plist editor (even Textedit would work).

Simple copy that .kext to desktop, Finder show content, open .plist and edit the .plist.

Then use some kext install utility to install that changes .kext from desktop to /S/L/E. ( i use Kextwizard, old but good).

After that, the prelinked kernel  automatically should have been updated (newer time date than before) , but can take up to 1 Min after finishing the util/kext install.

That's just what I do, but as an editor I like to use aforementioned MKL... Let's see what happens when i have the time to tinker.

 

IDK what negative impact by doing these; except "invalid signature". But on 10.11.6 (15G1502) NVIDIA WebDriver-346.03.15f07 just loaded & it works.  :)

Thanks for that pic, there's all the info I need :)

Works also with 15G1602 (Security Update Developer Beta 2017-003)

 

Yeah, still has no sign for Pascal support under 10.11.6 though.. and since 10.13 Dev release is near (on June), I'm not sure but who know?  :lol:

If only I could try Sierra, but my Mini isn't new enough...

After foolishly installing latest apple update  :wallbash: to 10.11.6 (15G1611)

 

build 15G1510 is no longer compatible...

 

I get this error when trying to reinstall:

 

Mac OS X version is not compatible

 

Mac OS X version 10.11.6 (15G1611) is not supported with this package. Please see NVIDIA’s website for further driver information.

Just wait for new Web driver official release from Nvidia then...  :lol:

Ouch!

 

Anyway, crisis averted. Managed to rollback using Time Machine backup. Now all good.

 

Other El Capitan updaters beware! Nvidia web drivers are not supported after 15G1611 update!

It seems there is no WebDriver update for 10.11.6 with security patch 2017-004 available yet.
For those of you who would like to patch NVDAStartupWeb.kext for the time being the new build number is: 15G17023

WebDriver-346.03.15f01.pkg not working after the latest security update. El Capitan 10.11.6 (15G17023) 31/10/2017 (Not compatible)

Hope a fix comes quick! Why is Apples default driver from way back in 01/07/2016, version GeForce 10.10.14 310.42.25f02?

      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?

      Clover r5101 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.15 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r5101 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.5k-5101-X64.iso by double clicking on it.
      2. Mount your VM's EFI System Partition eg in terminal
      sudo diskutil mount disk0s1   3. Copy EFI folder from step 1 into the EFI partition
      4. Shutdown the VM, add bios.bootDelay = "3000" to your VM's vmx file
      5. Reboot your VM, press <F2> to access the VMware Boot Manager and add CLOVERX64.efi to the boot menu.
       
      Substitute your own unique and valid MLB and ROM variables in the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist (Rt Variables section) to activate iMessage/Facetime on your VM.

      Trying To Boot Mac OS X El Capitan On Surface Book 1 i5 128GB 
      Ive tried everything under the sun to try to get this to even load the installer
      ive had mixed experiences trying many different options and “combos” 
      i Can Offer Someone That Can Help A “Software Pack” Which Includes
      My EFI
      Kexts
      DSDT
      Readmes
       
      Pretty Much Everything I HaveTried And Researched
      Hopefully That Will Help As I’m Confident I Should Have All Required Files But Not So Confident On How They Should Be Coupled 
      There Is A Guide On This Platform That Goes Over Installing This But What Is Demoed Is MacOS Sierra 10.12 When My Target Is 10.11 El Capitan  Everyone In The Comments That Tried El Capitan Either Have Out Of The Gate Sucess Or Gave Up And Went To Sierra The Problem Is Besides The Guide Author Correcting A Few Mistakes There Is No Actual Diagnosis And Help Given 
       
      For A While I Was Getting Nothing But A Black Screen After Moving Files I Finally Got An Apple Logo Great!..Not Really Because that’s all it would do.
       
      i Tried EFI Folder From Guy Who Did Surface Pro 4 “Port” And after I While I Will Get Cross Where The Apple Logo Would Be So There’s Something Happening When Using His EFI ; Mines Will Just Hang At Apple Logo For As Long As I Let It 
       
      With Verbose Boot Or Boot Flag -v 
       
      I Get Errors Concerning OSXAptioFixDrv They Are Usually Different 
      If I Try OSXAptioFix2Drv I Get
       
      ...........................................
       
      if i try OSXAptioFixDrv I get 1 of 3 errors Typically Saying Similiar Things 
      About Relocating Memory 
       
      Will Try To Add Photos 
       
      This Is Not My First Hackintosh More Like 5th or 6th But Besides On HP Elitebook Revolve Where I Had Similar Issues Due To BIOS Settings 
      I simply CAN NOT Get It To Boot No Matter What I Do Or Edit Please Help Or Provide EFI Folder That Will Work For Me 
      For Now Looking To Upgrade BIOS as I think it has something to do with firmware being to old as this PC Is usually never connected to Wi-Fi unless I need to download something and I cannot stress I have done everything under the sun to get this to even boot the installer
