I got black screen too.

 

After install latest CUDA driver & change (Clover) ProductName to iMac14,2, the screen is back.

 

Hope it helps.

I think it's the same bug as I posted before:

Post#3875 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/231075-chameleon-23svn-official-pkg-installer-binaries/page-194

There is some bug of X99 chip of which NVRAM can not load Nvidia Web Driver at 10.12GM/10.12.1/10.12.2beta

I just installed Sierra 10.12.1 and Nvidia Web Driver - 367.15.10.15f03 --> build 16B2657 but the system/screen keeps crashing. The system is using a EVGA GTX 970 and MSI X99-A SLI PLUS.

Is there a way to install older versions of the web driver? I get an error about how the older drivers cannot be installed when i try to run them.

 

It works without crashing when using the OS X native driver. But the native driver doesn't allow me to set the resolution to 2560x1280, and the second monitor has no display signal. Also the video output keeps flickering.

What should I do? Any kext that can solve the nvidia web driver problem?

 

If your Smbios= MacPro6,1 you need to use http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/424-agdpfix/ before switching to Mac Pro 6.1

Hi everyone,

Like many other users I face the problem that I can't set  nva_drv = 1 and in Nvidia panel I alway see "OSX driver".

 

First of all two words about my configuration:

 

mother board MSI z170A gaming m7

msi gtx 970

Mac os sierra final 10.12.1

Nvidia Web Driver - 367.15.10.15f03

 

After reading tons of threads with no luck, I found your post and I would like to try the solution indicated in your link, but I have some questions (sorry but I'm quiet newbie in this world):

 

- Got it fixed using the nvram ... dlib (in /Extra/modules)

Where can I find the NVRram... dlib? and is /Extra/modules in Sierra? because I didn't find such directory in filesystem.

- NvramFile.kext (in /L/E)

Same question for NVramFile.kext. Where can I find this file? and where is /L/E?

 

no problem for the terminal command:).

 

Thank you

You will get the 2 needed files DL link from the Link , which was some post before linked. (named  FileNVRAM_El_Capitan for chameleon.zip )

Copy the  FileNVRAM.dylib in /Extra/modules , which is the folder for Chameleon/Enoch .Folder /Extra exist if you use Chameleon. If the subfolder modules not exist,

you must create it before you can copy the .dylib into it.

 

Install  NvramFile.kext (in /Library/Extensions). Be sure to set right owner in terminal (sudo chown -R root:wheel ....) or better  use an kext install util for that - and /L/E not! /S/L/E.

 

The .kext must exist in all OS X Partions you use. If you have more than one OS X Version on HD , or within HDs partition or on more than one HD you have to install the .kext also

in all other partitions. It is not enough for example if you have two Partitions, one (main) running El Captain and second Partition Sierra. Your sierra Partition /L/E needs the kext (also).

 

I am unsure about the chameleon installs  on different HDs partitions. If you have only one /Extra on the main Partition with all subfolders, .plist etc. it should be enough, but all 

OS versions you try to boot will use the same chameleon config. plist and /Extra content.

 

After copy and install the two files be sure that the Kextcache/prelinked kernel got updated (because of the new .kext). Then, you must reboot.

Nothing special happens then, util you use the terminal.

sudo  nvram nvda_drv=1

After that command , if all worked, the .kext created an nvram.....plist. That .plist will be read and used next reboot and forever, until you change nvram by sudo nvram .... again.

So that are the steps:  copy install 2 files . REBOOT. sudo ... REBOOT.

??? iBooks working ok

 

Indeed man, Ibooks and Instruments.app not working, giving transparent screen. It a signature problem in Nvidia metal drivers, they know about it, let's keep on pushing them via the support system so that they ship the fix in the next update.

ok, let's take them one by one.

 

I'm using a dual-monitor setup. One monitor connected via DVI, the other one via HDMI. I will try to disconnect one monitor and see if that makes any difference. I don't have DP on either monitor.

 

I'm using iMac 14,2 system definition. And by patching AGDP.kext you mean setting those devices to none? Does that even make any difference? I did that in El Capitan. But...I don't think that actually made any difference whatsoever.

 

How do I rename to GFX1? Is there a way to do it from Clover (kexts to patch section)? That would be really useful.

 

UDPATE:

 

Well Hooray! It does boot with a single monitor (I kept the DVI one).

 

Now, how do I get it to work with both monitors? :D

 

UPDATE 2:

 

Well, that's fixed as well. By moving the DVI display to, well, the other DVI port. :)) Are you kidding me? THAT fixed it?

 

Anyway, thanks a lot for the tips and fast reply.

 

Same for me, GTX 960 Gainward

 

If i boot with screen on HDMI port, it works, but as soon as i plug my 2nd monitor to the DVI port, i get a kernel panic :(

Finally this was latest solution for me at least

 

Hi LAbyOne.I noticed you had the Nvidia 740 and didn't use any Nvidia drivers with Sierra. Did you still have video acceleration?

 

I have a H61M-S motherboard, i5 CPU and a Nvidia 740 I'm about to install Sierra on.

Sierra 12.2 beta 4 (the latest) has these Nvidia drivers "mac" in it.    There is one for 740m but its labeled "win" so not sure it applies, but its there.

What's wrong?

 

My VGA is GTX950 and I just installed last driver version: f03

I'm on Sierra 10.12.1

I had this issue on driver version: f01 too

 

when I try to open books in iBooks, iBook's window is like a glass (Transparent)

 

 

EDIT -------------------------------------------------------

Seems like, It's a known bug:

      Is it Supported on any version of macOS ?
    • By Aldaro
      I have been running macOS Mojave on my system for 3 months and everything was working pretty well.  After taking an update for clover, my entire system got wrecked, and I cannot even boot to an installation environment anymore (which I really need to do since I am starting back at square one).  I still have the old EFI folder backed up, but I know it'll only be a matter of time before Apple introduces an update that requires me to update Clover in order to work correctly.  I have tried all the available memory fixes, but none of them seem to work.  I was previously using the original osxaptiofix; so, I gave v2, and v3 a try, but to no success.  I read somewhere on the main discussion board for clover that AptioMemoryFix was no longer going to be supported and I therefor decided to skip over it (not to mention it isn't even available in newer clover installation packages).
       
      System specs:
      Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z390 M GAMING
      CPU Intel core i5 9600k @ stock 3.7GHz
      RAM 32GB DDR4 2667MHz
      GPU AMD Radeon RX 580 with 8GB of GDDR5
      SSD Intel 660p 512GB NVME
      NIC: Intel i210 10/100/1000 as it is natively supported in macOS
       
      I have been using the iMac 19,1 SMBIOs as I built this machine to match it as close as humanly possible.  As for my UEFI settings, I did the usual:
      Disabled Windows specific features and secure boot
      Enabled XHCI hand off
      Enabled Above 4G decoding
      Disabled onboard NIC since it is made irrelevant by my intel i210

      Below are images of the errors I am receiving when trying to boot the macOS Mojave installer.
       
      with original osxaptiomemoryfix

       
      osxaptiofixv2

       
      osxaptiofixv3

       
      Anyway, if somebody can help me figure out what's going on, that'd be greatly appreciated.  My ultimate goal is to get an install with minimal clover patches as to be better prepared when the winds of change from Apple come roaring.
       
      p.s: I have also attached a copy of my EFI folder

      Clover r4989 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_r4989 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4989-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.

      Hello,
       
      I have installed OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan) on April 2016 on my Asus Z170 Deluxe system.
       
      For installation I used this Thread.
       
      I used it a lot and it worked well. Meanwhile I switched to Linux and I use Win10 time to time. So OSX was forgotten. Also it did not boot correctly anymore.
       
      Now I wanted to start with a fresh installation and use OSX more often again. I want to use OSX 10.13 High Sierra. Is it working on my Asus Z170 Deluxe? I have the same Hardware as of April 2016 only the graphics card was updated to a Nvidia GTX1080.
       
      My Hardware in detail: Asus Z-170-Deluxe (Bios 3801), i7-6700k, EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC GAMING ACX 3.0, Samsung 950 Pro/M2 NVME 512MB, HDD 4 TB)
      Can I use some of support files from the old thread for the installation (see attachment)? Can I still use  Clover 2.3k r3292 Special Edition v2 ? Or do I need a newer version?
       
      Has someone installed High Sierra successfully on the Asus Z170 Deluxe ?
       
      About some hints where to start I would be thankful.
       
      regards
