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.

      Is it Supported on any version of macOS ?

      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
