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.

Edit Info.plist in NVDAStartupWeb.kext manually or with Nvidia WebDriver Updater app - Boot with nvda_drv=1

 

No guarantee it will work but good luck.   ;)

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.

 

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

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 !

      I recently installed Hackintosh Sierra. I don't have dedicated graphics card so I just used Intel integrated graphics which is Intel HD 4600 but since the Mac OS Sierra graphics acceleration not supported by native VGA output I'm left out options. I tired many things but nothing works. It's 2020 I'm pretty sure many people probably have better solution for this, if yes please help me.   Details PC Spec  i7 4790k HD 4600 Motherboard Gigabyte B85M-D3H-A

      Hello I'm Sagnik Ganguly, I'm trying to dual boot macOS 10.14 and Windows 10 (already installed) on a PC with Legacy BIOS. I've two hard drives one in where the windows is installed and another which is converted to GPT to install macOS Mojave 10.14 with a partion of Mac OS Extended (Journal) or APFS but when I went to the Install Disk Selection page, I'm selecting the partition but it says "This version of macOS 10.14 cannot be installed on this computer." can you help me please? 
      P. S. My motherboard doesn't support UEFI. 
      I'm attaching some pictures of the screens.

      Disclaimer: All files of this article are from itpwd.com and rehabman ’s github.com

       
      After Testing:
       
      Graphics card: NVIDIA K1000M / K2000M / K2100M / K3000M / K3100M / K4000M / M1000M (ordinary TN1600x900 or 1920x1080), AMD W5170M / W7170M (DC2 or 4K), Intel HD4000 (ordinary TN1600x900 or 1920x1080) can be driven normally, but NVIDIA graphics card Brightness adjustment is disabled. AMD W5170m and w7170m are the best choices on 8570W and 8770W. The brightness can be adjusted normally and the graphics performance is very good. For WX7100m and WX4170m, the graphics card fans cannot be controlled, and other methods are required to control the fans. CPU: 3rd generation Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 (Ivy Bridge architecture, including all dual-core and quad-core. Celeron and Pentium are not supported), frequency conversion is normal. In general: If you have 8570W, 8770W, and hope you can get the best Hackintosh experience, it is recommended to replace the CPU with i7-3840QM / i7-3940XM, 8570W is recommended to choose W5170M, 8770W, and it is recommended to choose W7170M. In addition: If you want to have a 4K experience or perfect HIDPI, W5170m / W7170M supports 4K output, you can choose a suitable 4K screen to replace, but because 4K screens are mostly edp interface, and 8570W / 8770W motherboard is lvds interface, This requires a custom screen cable, which seems to be a difficult choice, but you can choose to do it yourself or buy it separately. In China, taobao.com is almighty and may be more suitable for you than eBay.
       
      EFI features:
      out of the box, the relevant hardware can be driven after the OS is installed, and it is easy to use without code operation.
      Supported models: HP EliteBook 8470p, 8570p, 8570w, 8770w (click the model for official specifications)
      Wireless network card: Recommended: BCM94360cd (requires ipex4 to ipex1,3 antenna 1300mbps), BCM94352HMB / DW1550 (2 antennas, 867mbps)
      Wireless characteristics: no white list, wireless network card with Bluetooth does not support the Bluetooth function of the wireless network card (also does not need to shield the pins), but the wireless normal use, you need the Bluetooth function to use this machine comes with Bluetooth:
      Clover version: 5103, keyboard mapping has been added Command key = Alt key, Option key = Win key
      Supported systems: macOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G103)-macOS Catalina 10.15.x,
       
      Notes on known issues:
      1. The touchpad and the left and right keys under the touchpad are normal, the pointing stick and the left and right keys above the touchpad are temporarily unavailable (recommended to use the second generation of Apple Magic Trackpad)
      2. Indicator display problem (can be ignored, function is normal): Caps light is sometimes not switched in time, mute / wireless key may be yellow
      3.AMD graphics card / Intel nuclear display has supported sleep and 15 levels of brightness adjustment, NVIDIA has no
      4. If the AMD graphics card enters Huaping, refer to editing the Clover startup parameters, and add the Boot parameter radpg = 15 (the EFI file that has been configured with this parameter has been uploaded, refer to the following EFI-guided download link)
      5. Using the above NVIDIA graphics card with a normal TN screen 1600x900 or 1920x1080 can not enter the installation interface, please check whether the VBiOS of the graphics card is exclusively for HP, thank you for your test face K1000M
      6. Due to product design defects, the MSata positions of 8570w and 8770w cannot be used as boot disks, so EFI boot can only be placed on the main hard disk (turn the machine over and open the hard disk in the lower left corner of the cover, which is the main hard disk). Put on msata plate
      +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
      Hardware requirements:
      Model: 8470p, 8570p, 8570W, 8770W 1 or more, it is recommended to use another notebook for emergency Hard disk: It is recommended to choose an SSD hard disk of 240g or more. Samsung or Intel SATA hard disk is a good choice. Wireless card: BCM94352HMB, DW1550, BCM94360CD, miniPCIe slot U disk: 1 for 16g and above, another winPE emergency USB disk is recommended If you use a rescue USB flash drive, it means that you read this post carefully
       
      Make and install a USB flash drive:
      Get the mirror: please do it your way Making and installing a USB flash drive: macOS command line production is recommended, whether it is a real macOS model or a virtual machine (although this is not allowed to be discussed in many forums)Or you can choose to use TransMac or ether under Windows. This is not recommended, but it is simple enough for those new to Hackintosh. Make boot U disk: If you know how to put the boot into the installation U disk, unzip the EFI file and put it in the EFI partition, or you can choose a fat32 format U disk to store the EFI file separately Note: EFI is an unzipped folder, not a zip or ISO suffix file.
       
      BIOS settings From RehabMan
      To start, set BIOS to defaults.
      Then insure:
      UEFI boot is enabled (hybrid/with CSM for best result) secure boot is disabled disable fast boot IGPU graphics memory set to 64mb, if available disable the serial port via BIOS option, if available disable "LAN/WLAN switching", if available disable "Extended Idle Power States" if you find it under "Power Management Options" disable "Wake on LAN" and "Wake on USB" disable Firewire/IEEE 1394, if your laptop has it for Skylake and KabyLake laptop, enable "Launch Hotkeys without Fn keypress" Note: If you have a laptop with switchable graphics, leave it enabled. You can still use it on Windows, although the discrete card will be disabled when running OS X by the ACPI patches provided here. If you want to also disable it in Windows (via BIOS option), make sure you read about the DGPU option in your model specific SSDT (source is in SSDT-HACK.dsl), as in the scenario where the DGPU is disabled by BIOS, DGPU should be set to zero.
       
      Install:
      Please modify according to the above BIOS settings: Press F9 after booting, select the boot efi to file option, which is generally the last item. Enter your boot USB disk to find the location of cloverx64.efi, select cloverx64.efi, press Enter, and enter the clover boot interface. Select the location of the install entry and press Enter. Enter the macOS interface, use the disk tool to format the partition you need to install to hfs + or apfs format, do not choose the encryption option, this will make your efforts in vain. Note: The disk must be in gpt format, and the remaining EFI space is greater than 200M, 300mb + is recommended. If it is not, please try to modify it in WindowsPE environment. This may cause you to lose the Windows system boot and disk data. Please prepare for backup.
      After formatting the partition successfully, close the disk tool and select install, you will find the partition you installed, and follow the interface prompts. When the installation reaches a certain progress, it will restart. When restarting, select F9, enter from the boot U disk, select the disk partition where you installed macOS (no longer the U disk installation), the installation will continue, and it may restart 2 ~ 3 times Every time, you need F9 to select the boot. After entering the installation interface, except for the first installation, select the U disk, and then select the disk installation partition. Eventually you will enter the settings interface. After following the interface prompts, you will enter the macOS system interface. Remember the system password and turn off the Find my mac option.  
      Post install:
       
      After the installation is complete, you need to hang the EFI partition of the disk, copy the EFI file of the U disk to the EFI partition of the disk, so that you can directly use the disk to boot, otherwise you need to select the U disk to boot each time. The mount tool can choose cloverconfigurator. If after copying the EFI file to the disk, the computer cannot recognize your clover boot, you can use the custom boot option of bios: set the custom boot path to \efi\clover\cloverx64.efi, and set it as the first boot, Use bootice or easyUEFI to increase the clover boot option under Windows and set it as the first boot. If you do not have a wireless network card available temporarily, you can use the USB binding function of your Android phone to share the network. This may require the HoRndis driver. It is not recommended to use a US wireless network card. If you need Windows or Linux, you can install it normally. Be careful not to let Windows overwrite your boot files.  
      For other uses of macOS and brew, please pay attention to forums and other communities. Hackintosh is just the beginning.
       
      Finally, I would like to thank rehabman, vit9696 and others who contributed to Hackintosh. I also thank Cwen for his efforts to modify files and hardware tests. I hope that Hackintosh will be eternal.
       
      Please comply with the laws and regulations of your country or region. My description may not be clear or professional, but I think it is necessary. I think the existence of Hackintosh is everyone's technical hobby and experience macOS, not as a substitute for macOS cheap hardware.

      Hola a todos, primero que nada estoy muy contento de a ver econtrado un foro de español sobre hackintosh.
      Mi problema consesite en que descargue unos drivers de esta pagina: https://github.com/chris1111/Wireless-USB-Adapter-Clover
      Seguí los pasos instale los kets en la carpeta EFI/CLOVER/OTHERS todo tal cual como dice ahi la instalación. luego segui los pasos de configurar la red dentro de configuracion del sistema etc.
      Lo cual el nombre me quedo en en0.
      El driver o kets funciona bien es reconocible por el S.O de hecho conecta la red, pero me dice que no tiene IP AUTO ASIGNADA Y LA OTRA QUE HAY UNA DESCONEXION A CADA RATO(como que desconectaras y conectaras el dispositvo usb a cada rato)
      Me gustaria que me ayuden con eso si es posible, Muchas Gracias!!
