Recommended Posts

Try using another OSes which has Pascal support, if it works just OK then there's nothing wrong with ur card.  :)

FYi, my GT 520M also got black screen issue after wake from sleep under Sierra.

 

My Windows 10 for gaming works flawlessly with two DP (TV + Monitor)

 

Yes, there's a few threads in the graphics card section

 

I'll check them out, thanks.

hi guys. strange problem here. I had this issue even with my old build, z170 + 6700k + 980 ti (with Sierra Mac OS)

now I am on z270, 7700k, gtx 1080 and obviously Sierra.

I have a 4k monitor connected to display port and a epson projector connected to hdmi port. as soon as I turn on the projector, I have a black screen in both "monitors" and I have to reset my hack.

the only way to have both monitor and projector working is this:

-first turn on projector

-then turn on hackintosh

 

when I have black screen I tried to unplug and re plug display port and hdmi cable, but this is not working.

in other threads I remember that a possible fix was to enable csm in bios. I tried it but it didn't help.

 

is someone here who can help me?

thank you

 

 

I'm using iMac 17,1 smbios with lilu + Nvidiagraphicsfixup.

same situation using iMac 14,2

MacPro6,1

nvda_drv=1

NvidiaWeb=1

Lilu+nvidiagraphicsfixup+agdpfixv1.3

 

And a blank screen on boot. Any ideas?

 

 

This is after disabling nvida on boot:

test it

attachicon.gifconfig.plist.zip

 

btw, the best for u is iMac14,2

I originally had a iMac14,2 but was switching around to see if that helped.

 

Unfortunately the config.plist you posted doesn't help :/

Still get a blank screen, and only 1 of my 3 monitors.

I fixed this using injection on my 1080, like so: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/322896-dual-monitors-and-pascal/?p=2411729

same situation using iMac 14,2

 

solution, in my case, found.

i have to turn on my projector with cable pulled off from my hack. when the projector is on, I can plug it into my hdmi port and everything is working.

if I turn on projector with cable connected, I have black screen to both my monitor and my projector.

hope it helps.

Issues with underscan when trying to run at my monitor's native resolution of: 3440 x 1440 @ 100hz, via displayport. Screen is underscaled, running with black borders.

 

System:

Gigabyte Aorus Z270X Gaming 7

Intel Core i7 i7700K

Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080ti Xtreme

 

I had previously had a working build by installing the latest NVIDIA web drivers, and the 3440x1440 and 100hz options showed up, and worked, filling my screen properly. I remember late last night hooking up my 1080p/60z projector via HDMI and trying out some dual-screen options, which were working great. At one point, I accidentally hit "overscan", and since then, that option has disappeared, and I'm running with underscan (black borders).

 

What I've tried:

- Uninstalling and reinstalling NVIDIA Web Drivers (via the pref pane, uninstall option).

- Deleting the com.apple.coregraphics.plst file and then uninstalling/re-installing NVIDIA Web Drivers

- Installing pixel clock patch, and then uninstalling that

- Installing CUDA, then uninstalling CUDA

- All of the above in various combinations.

 

No matter what I try, the best I can get my screen is either a crappy lower resolution, but at least it is properly scaled (no black bars) OR I can get 3440x1440 but only at 60hz, and with underscaling (Black borders).

 

Any ideas?

FWIW, I used patch-edid.rb which solved the underscan/black border issue. Although there are a few remaining issues:

 

- My refresh rate locked at 60hz, and the box is greyed out, so I don't know how to get it back to 100hz (my monitor's native refresh rate).

- I have to enable nvda-drv=1, otherwise I don't have the option of 3440x1440 (my monitor's native resolution), but I thought this was supposed to be disabled for NVIDIA web drivers to work (with pascal cards)?

- My screen is a tiny bit tinted, like night shift or flux has been enabled a little bit. The only way I can see colors properly is if I enable Night Shift, move the slider a bit, then disable it. Having to do this every single time I boot up is not good.

 

Any ideas?

I have the same problem and I havent messed around with my EDID. Still looking for the solution but it looks to be related to NVIDIA because the same monitor connected to a Radeon Mac does not have the same behavior.

Every time I restart I have the NVIDIA driver selected but under system info it shows the IGP HD4600 of the processor.

I have to select OS X Default Graphics Driver, restart, and select NVIDIA Web Driver.

 

ERROR_zpsc5tpoega.jpg

 

I have my monitor attached to the GTX 750ti and selected in bios this graphic card not the IGP.
When I start the computer I can see the bios, apple logo starting since one point where my screen gets black, only the screen, there's no hang up as I connect to this computer through splashtop and all is working as expected.

 

Any way to solve this?

Thankyou
Gus

 

*************************************************************

EDIT

*************************************************************

I did this I read somewhere and for the moment it's solved, I haven't had any more black screen since yesterday and I have reboot a lot of times to test it.

 

 


1. Open your Clover config.plist
2. Go to the SMBIOS section
3. Replace the Board-ID field with ONE of these (Doesn't matter what your actual SMBIOS is; I'm using an iMac 12,2 SMBIOS with an iMac 14,2 board-id as pictured below):

(Try this first) iMac 14,2: Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61
iMac 13,2: Mac-FC02E91DDD3FA6A4
Mac Pro 4,1: Mac-F221BEC8
Mac Pro 6,1: Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6

      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.
