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

Hey,

 

After many, MANY, tests, I can't get my GTX 1060 to work on 16G1815 with this last Web Driver update. (I have two of these 1060s on my disposal)

When booting with nv-disable=0, the system will not.. "finish" to boot. In verbose mode, I'm having all the usual lines 'till the last, and nothing happening next.

 

The frustrating part is, my GTX 970 work perfectly fine !
With absolutely the same settings (just have to unplug the 1060, plug the 970, and go)

Even with two GTX 970, I can have 6 independent displays working (professional needs of that many screens...)

 

Everyone of these 4 GPUs (1060s and 970s) are from MSI, Gaming X version.

 

If someone has any idea of a little tip, something I could have missed, or good topic to post on...

 

Thanks

 

System 

MB : MSI Z97 Gaming 5
CPU : i7 4790k
Webdriver : f13, installed/re-installed many times, with or without the GPU plugged in, with or without the driver "EmuVariableUefi-64"


Drivers : OsxAptioFix2 + EmuVariable

Kexts : Lilu + Whatevergreen , both up to date

SIP off (0x67)
"NvidiaWeb" activated in CloverConfigurator
Clover up to date


I can not manage to install HighSierra either on this config, which is another problem I need to deal with, but can be the solution...

^^^^Some models of the GTX 1060 have trouble on a Mac.  The GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 seem to be OK.  I am running a Gigabyte GTX1080 in HS. I recommend another GPU.

I updated my Sierra hackintosh tonight and graphics broke again. Build 16G1918 is not compatible. :grumble:

 

Edit: For giggles I chatted with support at Nvidia and they informed me that they do not have a fix and that I need to roll back my upgrade.  When I asked how long for an update to be released for the driver the reply was "we cannot comment on that."

 

Edit2: Nvidia just put out updated drivers for 16G1918.  I don't have a link, but they installed via Preference Pane.

The same thing happened to me about the same time as you.  The update came out a few days later.  My practice now is to wait maybe a week before updating the OS.  Always check this site (link below) to see if there is a driver for a newer build.  In other words, see if there is a newer build with a new driver.  Don't proceed until you confirm that there is a graphic driver for the next build for your OS.  I have the latest graphics driver so I will no update my OS.  Even though the update may not effect the graphics.  I won't risk it.

Thank you for this listing.  I waited for the "new" build on this page before updating my OS.

      Patch Catalina or Mojave macOS Installer App for Unsupported Machines
       
      Often for economic reasons, Apple prevents the Installer.app for its latest macOS from installing on older machines perfectly capable of running it eg macOS 10.14 Mojave on Unsupported Macs Thread.
       

       
      In Mojave 10.14, @ASentientBot posted a method to patch the distribution file in OSInstall.mpkg to enable the Mojave installer to install on unsupported machines (with or without graphics card metal support). 
       
      In Catalina 10.15beta, the above method no longer works since Apple is checking OSInstall.mpkg for its file signature and the mandatory requirement in Catalina to install to 2 separate apfs volumes necessitates using the original Catalina macOS Base System Installer.  Fortunately, it is still possible to substitute High Sierra’s Apple Signed OSInstall.mpkg inside the Catalina or Mojave InstallESD.dmg by making it R/W.
       
      The procedure below will allow Macs or Hacks able to install High Sierra to also install Catalina or Mojave (eg SMBIOS MacPro5,1, iMac11,3, MacBook Pro7,1 which have been unsupported in macOS 10.14.x and 10.15beta) -credit to @ASentientBot's post.
       
      Prerequisites
      1. Mac or Hack capable of and running High Sierra 10.13.x
      2. An original, untouched copy of OSInstall.mpkg from High Serra InstallESD.dmg - attached OSInstall_10.13.6.mpkg.zip save to your ~/Downloads folder
      3. macOS Installer App eg for Catalina beta or Mojave downloaded to /Applications
      4. Add NVRAM boot arg (or Clover config.plist boot arg on a hack) -no_compat_check to enable system to boot to final completed Mojave or Catalina install.
       
      Procedure
      1. Open Terminal and type the following
       
      open /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg (assuming the Catalina or Mojave Installer App is in /Applications)  
      2. Open Disk Utility, click File|New Image|Image from ‘InstallESD”
      3. Save as read/write image, no encryption in /Applications
      4. Unmount InstallESD in DU by clicking the "eject" icon next to it
       
       
      5. Open the R/W InstallSD.dmg in /Applications and replace Catalina’s/Mojave's OSInstall.mpkg with High Sierra’s version by typing in terminal
       
      open /Applications/InstallESD.dmg cp ~/Downloads/OSInstall_10.13.6.mpkg /Volumes/InstallESD/Packages/OSInstall.mpkg  
      6. Unmount InstallESD in DU by clicking the "eject" icon next to it
      7. Replace original Catalina/Mojave InstallESD.dmg with our patched one, making a backup of the original.  In terminal, type
       
      sudo mv /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg /Applications/InstallESD_orig.dmg sudo mv /Applications/InstallESD.dmg /Applications/Install*/Contents/SharedSupport/  
      8.  Test the newly patched installer!…

      Clover r4961 ISO compiled with GCC and minimal config.plist compatible for use in VMWare Workstation.
       
      Tested with unlocked Workstation 15 running OSX 10.9 -->10.14 guest in Windows X64 host.
       
      Installation
      1. Download and unzip "EFI_Clover_r4961 for VMware.zip". Mount Clover-v2.4k-4961-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.
