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

 

If you still need help contact me ;)

Hi all,

 

looking for some additional guidance...

 

I've installed a GT 730 2GB into my HP Z800 system. running Sierra on EFI(old system)

 

I can't for the life of me get Sierra to use the Nvidia drivers.

 

I've enabled the web drivers flag using Clover configurator, and removed nv_drv=1.

 

If it does manage to boot into OSX, I see artifacts on the screen and a black background on the login page and desktop

 

 

Thank you everyone, as always

Same result. I even tried changing SMBIOS to 16,2 but no luck.

 

The card has three ports so should I change the 2 to 3?

@ Frank Nitty . I'm using a gtx970 and was just toying with the idea of getting a GTX1070 if there working ok

Specs in signture Frank

Yeah my specs are in Rig #1 of my sig, and I'm running a 4770K on the Z97 platform as well. My system has been running 10.12.4 with my 1070's all day and I haven't had any problems so you're good to go since we pretty much have similar specs. Why wait now, go get that bad boy now while the prices are good.

:D Works for me.. Using an ASUS GTX-1080 ROG STRIX GPU.

 

Build:

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K
Motherboard: MSI Z170A Gaming M7
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 1080 STRIX
Operating System: MacOS Sierra 10.12.4

 

Configuration:

Boot: -v dart=0 nvda_drv=1

Graphics: videoports: 3

SMBIOS: Board-ID: Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61, ProductName: iMac17,1

SystemParameters: Inject SystemID, NvidiaWeb

 

 

How I got it working? Install the Nvidia WebDrivers. Then I installed the SMBIOS iMac17,1 but then I manually changed the Board-ID to: iMac14,2 aka: Mac-27ADBB7B4CEE8E61. Next I changed VideoPorts to 3, added the boot flags and NvidiaWeb.

Why I changed the BoardID? Because without that Board-ID, I keep getting a black screen! I tried patching it via a KextPatch and DSDT patch but no cigar. The Board-ID change was way easier and works no problem. VideoPorts=3 aren't needed but I felt like I should specify it for completeness anyway..

Oddly, I get a black screen on my GTX 1080 unless I use NvidiaInject=true. Works perfectly when injected, but I wonder why this is required?

to avoid black screen use Lilu.kext + NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext in Clover/Kexts/Other

 

if ur bios is a last version(support Kabylake) need EmuVariableUefi-64.efi

Is NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext used now instead of ADGPFix.app or manual patching? No more patching? No KextsToPatch?

It can only be installed on 10.12.4

---EDIT---

Hey guys, I was running Witcher 2 on my hack using the newly released Pascal Web drivers and during the opening cut scene where the guy throws the freezing tube, as soon as the glass breaks my hack restarted. Anybody else have that problem?

      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
