Cut the jobs inside Nvidia,only around 20 engineers for Mac OS X or macOS drivers.

Not expecting too much about the drivers,which full of bugs already.

Most probably Apple would take more AMD graphics.

Did somebody try 346.03.15b01 web driver with macOS Sierra?  :)

<key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
<string>16A</string>

 

can i try using the web drivers of 10.11.6 with sierra?how should i use the above string you have written?

I checked inside the .pkg and it doesn't seem to contain support for Pascal cards.

Can anyone with a Pascal card confirm that these drivers don't work yet?

I've just tried to boot with Sierra and this new driver. Unfortunately it won't work with my GTX 950.

 

If I go into terminal, and type this I get an error:

 

Mac-Pro-Server:~ me$ sudo nvram boot-args="nvda_drv=1"

Password:

nvram: Error setting variable - 'boot-args': (iokit/common) general error

Mac-Pro-Server:~ me$ 

 

So close yet so far :)


Does anyone have a contact at NVIDIA for the web driver?  It clearly needs fixing as it just doesn't work with Sierra GTX950 - in fact, whilst the card is in my machine, it won't even boot! It gets caught in a kernel panic loop.

Works great here ! :thumbsup_anim:

 

 

What Mac Pro are you running?...  actually, looks like you are running a hackintosh... 

 

I'm actually trying to get it to work in a MacPro3,1.

Of course I am ! It's a Hackintosh forum here :P. But FYI I use an iMac13,2 SMBios.

 

I'm actually trying to get it to work in a MacPro3,1.

What are you trying to do actually ? Install macOS Sierra on a MacPro3,1 or NVIDIA Webdrivers ? If the package refuse to install them, then you should try NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app 1.4.

I have Sierra running on my MacPro3,1 - had to hack it to do so. I have installed the beta driver for Sierra and it installed successfully. However, when I try and boot with my GTX950 card, it won't boot, it crashes, and loops. This didn't happen in el capitan and the drivers for that OS. Therefore, I suspect the driver isn't working properly yet - it clearly works in a PC hackintosh environment (well, at least for you which is great) but not in the Mac Pro world yet.

Someone with GTX 10x0 to try the pascal GPU with these drivers ?

 

I had a quick look to the PKG contents, and I don't think it is gonna work.

There are 3 kexts:

 - GF100

 - GK100

 - GM100

I'm having problems getting my GTX 980TI working correctly on 10.12.

 

I'm getting that dreaded "black screen" bug.

 

I have already modified AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext setting Mac-65CE76090165799A to none.

 

It kind of seems like the kernel cache is not "sticking", as I'm able to boot up with nv_disable=1, rebuild the kernel cache (sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel & sudo kextcache -system-caches), reboot.

 

This makes the "black screen" bug go away, but only for a few restarts.

 

Anyone who have experienced this?

Same thing here. I'm trying the commands to rebuild kernel cache. Seems like it didn't work. Time for El Capitan I guess!

Hello guys,

 

Anyone managed to get this to work on a GTX 950? I'm getting a black screen when loading second stage boot. And...nothing else.

I suppose it's an issue with the driver? Is there a known solution to this? Or should we just wait for the next driver update?

Yes, I got it working with the GTX 950 - I am using a Mac Pro with the web driver. So if it was an issue with the web driver, it wouldn't have worked for me as the only way to get it to work in OSX is the web driver.

Works good here with GTX970 Gainward Phantom and beta webdriver.

Tested with Geekbench and Cinebench R15.

Only de singlecore results are 15 % lower than with 10.11.5 !

      Can someone help me fix reboot issue? Actually it reboots, but sometimes the hackintosh just hangs with screen off. Here is the Extra folder containing org.chameleon.boot.plist. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MX8-DpQk9kaRUfjPcToxf-ElWh-bN6EY?usp=sharing  and the spec of the PC. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1NlcUNK5DBzJFxeFeuyt92eRjQqwO5T32?usp=sharing Can someone look at it? I might be doing something wrong. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.
