Nvidia Web Driver updates for macOS Sierra (UPDATE May 15, 2019)

1,060 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Working with my EVGA 1080 Ti Founders Edition  :D It's also serving as a 'helper' card for my Rx 480 (waiting on a new monitor to arrive -- the 1080 doesn't have DVI so I can't switch over completely). Tested an export in Adobe Premiere with CUDA and it seemed to go well. 

 

Used AGDPfix with Mac Pro 6,1. I'm having trouble getting the nvda_drv=1 setting to stick though, it looks like I have to manually enable it on every boot. Clover boot options in the config don't work -- it just loads the Apple driver. Is anyone else having that issue?

Any workarounds for multi - monitor setups?  I have to update my signature, but I have an EVGA 1080 FTW and 1 monitor connected to DVI and one to DP.  If I boot with just the DP monitor connected, it works fine...I just have to connect the DVI one and get multi monitors working.  Otherwise, if I boot with both connected, it's blank screens for both and have to hard reset.

hey guys, just installed the new update and its broken flux on my mac! any ideas as to a fix or is this something we need to wait for flux to update their app for? oddly the white outline of my mouse recolours, but the whole display stays full blue levels, its unbearable!

Where do these go?

 

What was changed exactly? Thanks!

 

My 1080 Ti shows up, Open CL is OK (22354 on LuxMark 3.1 luxball), but no CUDA of course.

No need any more.

The Cuda has Update on 8.0.81

I updated to 10.12.4 with the latest version of Clover r4049 and then installed the Pascal drivers while my GPU (GTX 1070) displays out via HDMI. Each time after I change to the Webdriver from the NVIDIA preference panel and restart, it reverts back to the OS X Default drivers. What gives man? I'm not sure what else I could possibly do

I'm stuck at a standstill and out of ideas as to how get my GPU enabled. If you're wondering, I already tried installing EmuVariableUefi-64 via Clover which caused my system not to boot so I had to use my USB boot disk to access 10.12.4 to delete it from the EFI drivers folder.

Sorry for my english

 

Clover must have iNvidiaweb=true in System parameters. Add nvda_drv=1 in boot args if necessary.

Anyone know why the sudden jump

 

From: 367 to 378

 

My hack feels way responsive and smoother (GTX 960), i guess they improved their Metal driver :D

Bro, Flux is now useless, with 10.12.4 apple has a native alternative to flux, go in System Settings -> Display -> Night Shift, it's so much better :)

My guess about the version number just is to make it appear as they are keeping up with the windows drivers.

Unfortunately those were already setup in my config.plist

Also after doing this test as described here, I concluded my system has working hardware NVRAM which is the reason why it will not boot with EmuVariableUefi-64 installed from Clover since there is no need for it. Still no luck. Everytime after restart, the NVIDIA Web Driver resets back to OS X Default Graphics Driver in the NVIDIA preference pane in 10.12.4.

Only one issue for the moment:

 

Night Shift only works on the main screen :( (HDMI + DVI)

 

As a workaround i toggle twice mirror screen

I'm not sure as to what else I can do to proceed further. Attached is a screenshot of my current situation involving my problem attempting to enable Pascal drivers. I already updated to 10.12.4 with the latest version of Clover r4049 and installed the Pascal drivers while my GPU (GTX 1070) input is HDMI. In my config.plist, NvidiaWeb=True and Graphics/Inject/Nvidia=False (as well as Intel/AMD). Each time after I change to the Webdriver from the NVIDIA preference panel and restart, it reverts back to the OS X Default drivers. And for the record, if you're wondering, I've already tried implementing the solution for Problem 6 which requires installing EmuVariableUefi-64 via Clover which causes my system not to boot each time so I have to use my USB boot disk to access 10.12.4 to delete it from the EFI 'drivers' folder. And after doing this test as described here, I concluded my system has working hardware NVRAM which is the reason why it will not boot with EmuVariableUefi-64 installed from Clover since there is no need for it. Still no luck. I'm fresh out of ideas and I don't know what else I'm missing. If someone could help me brainstorm some other posibilities to get these Pascal drivers working I'd greatly appreciate it.

Had same problem as you. First, with nvda_drv=1 the driver won't load. Using NvidiaWeb=1 Give me black screen. After some research, got mine working using AGDPfix.v1.3 and NvidiaWeb=1 in Clover. SMBIOS is iMac 17.1

Send me Clover folder with ACPI tables dropped (press F4 at Clover Boot Manager screen, wait 5 seconds, then boot into OS), mount your drive, then grab CLOVER folder. Also send me an IOREG file: Download, open, save IOREG file: IORegistryExplorerv2.1.zip Compress both, then upload here.

AGDPFix is a temporary solution that breaks every time you upgrade. Not recommended for long term sustainability.

Hello everybody,
Well sorry to say but I'm stuck. Was trying everything from this thread and from whatever google found it with no luck. Can't resolve for few days. After I enable nvidia web driver I getting balck screen after reboot. Three times reinstall 10.12.4, started from scratch. I can say I tried everything what possibly can. Hope I still missing something. Different system definitions, kexts lilu and nvidiafixup or AGDPfix patch, different monitor numbers in clover, inject EDID, custom EDID, override EDID, nvidia simple name, nvidia single and etc, same result, black screen. Through VNC I can see that system is up and running.
If anyone have any thoughts please help me.
Thank you.

P.S. forgot to mention that Monitor connected by HDMI

this is a problem on me as well.  It seems the new driver causes some kind of problems with clover.  Sometimes I get a hang on AppleIntelCPU power management kext as well from this driver.  I have a 970 so I just reverted to old driver and it works fine.  Good luck

probobly write flux dev's to fix it

Bro, you dont know what you are talking about.  How about sending me your apple cinema display bro.  Thx.

night shift only works on certain models of monitors.  You could spoof that model but i highly doubt you are that intelligent, no offense.

Don't worry a/b it, I got it finally working. I did some brainstorming for solutions by looking at posts from members on t**ymacx86 who had experienced issues to similar to mine and decided to reinstall macOS 10.12 on a diff partition and update to 10.12.4 along w/ the new Web drivers and Cuda. After doing so the Web drivers are finally enabled. Lesson learned: When all else fails reinstall a clean copy of OS X.

      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
       
      --INJECT KEXTS--
      FakeSMC
      Lilu
      WhateverGreen
      AppleALC
      USBInjectAll -- WITH PATCHED SSDT in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched
      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
      JackBauer24
