Cut the jobs inside Nvidia,only around 20 engineers for Mac OS X or macOS drivers.

Not expecting too much about the drivers,which full of bugs already.

Most probably Apple would take more AMD graphics.

I checked inside the .pkg and it doesn't seem to contain support for Pascal cards.

Can anyone with a Pascal card confirm that these drivers don't work yet?

I've just tried to boot with Sierra and this new driver. Unfortunately it won't work with my GTX 950.

 

If I go into terminal, and type this I get an error:

 

Mac-Pro-Server:~ me$ sudo nvram boot-args="nvda_drv=1"

Password:

nvram: Error setting variable - 'boot-args': (iokit/common) general error

Mac-Pro-Server:~ me$ 

 

So close yet so far :)


Does anyone have a contact at NVIDIA for the web driver?  It clearly needs fixing as it just doesn't work with Sierra GTX950 - in fact, whilst the card is in my machine, it won't even boot! It gets caught in a kernel panic loop.

Works great here ! :thumbsup_anim:

 

 

What Mac Pro are you running?...  actually, looks like you are running a hackintosh... 

 

I'm actually trying to get it to work in a MacPro3,1.

Of course I am ! It's a Hackintosh forum here :P. But FYI I use an iMac13,2 SMBios.

What are you trying to do actually ? Install macOS Sierra on a MacPro3,1 or NVIDIA Webdrivers ? If the package refuse to install them, then you should try NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app 1.4.

I have Sierra running on my MacPro3,1 - had to hack it to do so. I have installed the beta driver for Sierra and it installed successfully. However, when I try and boot with my GTX950 card, it won't boot, it crashes, and loops. This didn't happen in el capitan and the drivers for that OS. Therefore, I suspect the driver isn't working properly yet - it clearly works in a PC hackintosh environment (well, at least for you which is great) but not in the Mac Pro world yet.

Someone with GTX 10x0 to try the pascal GPU with these drivers ?

 

I had a quick look to the PKG contents, and I don't think it is gonna work.

There are 3 kexts:

 - GF100

 - GK100

 - GM100

I'm having problems getting my GTX 980TI working correctly on 10.12.

 

I'm getting that dreaded "black screen" bug.

 

I have already modified AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext setting Mac-65CE76090165799A to none.

 

It kind of seems like the kernel cache is not "sticking", as I'm able to boot up with nv_disable=1, rebuild the kernel cache (sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel & sudo kextcache -system-caches), reboot.

 

This makes the "black screen" bug go away, but only for a few restarts.

 

Anyone who have experienced this?

Same thing here. I'm trying the commands to rebuild kernel cache. Seems like it didn't work. Time for El Capitan I guess!

Hello guys,

 

Anyone managed to get this to work on a GTX 950? I'm getting a black screen when loading second stage boot. And...nothing else.

I suppose it's an issue with the driver? Is there a known solution to this? Or should we just wait for the next driver update?

Yes, I got it working with the GTX 950 - I am using a Mac Pro with the web driver. So if it was an issue with the web driver, it wouldn't have worked for me as the only way to get it to work in OSX is the web driver.

Works good here with GTX970 Gainward Phantom and beta webdriver.

Tested with Geekbench and Cinebench R15.

Only de singlecore results are 15 % lower than with 10.11.5 !

      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.
