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!

Everything is working fine with nonEFI Quadro k2200 except CUDA / I installed 7.5.29 but no App sees CUDA anyone a link for CUDA 8.0 for OS X or any Beta for Sierra ???

 

 

***Update***

 

Still after Update 7.5.30 fails to show up in Apps too

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 had this same problem on my system with a GTX 980Ti.

 

What is your monitor setup?

 

I fixed it by moving both my monitors to DP (2x1440p).

 

My secondary monitor is dual-link DVI only, but I luckily had a dual-link dvi to DP cable.

 

If you have more than one monitor and one of them support DP, try disconnecting all other monitors and see if you get signal.

 

Also if you use iMac15; iMac17 or MacPro6 I guess you have already patched the AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext? (Or renamed your Nvidia to GFX1) If not do that first.

Screenshot is from 10.11.5, but should give you an idea about how I connected my monitors.

      What is working:
      BCM94360HMB Wifi and Bluetooth AirDrop, Handoff, FaceTime, Messages, App Store, iCloud, etc. Intel HD 530 (QE/CI tested, but now I'm using it in headless) Sleep RX 5700 (QE/CI with 2 1080p monitors connected) Sound (all ports) USB Ports Two Ethernet ports macOS with a light OC (4.12 GHz - 4.5 Ghz, XMP, ASUS optimal) ASUS HyperKit and M.2 with a KINGSTON NVMe SSD - 250 GB Hardware decoding/encoding on both HD 530 and RX 5700 (HD 530 up to HEVC, RX 5700 at the time of writing VP9) iGPU only (with QuickSync) is used in the default config.plist To use dGPU for hw decode/encode and also use Intel QuickSync you need to start with "config_headless.plist" This will use iMac17,2 SMBIOS and shikigva=80 To use dGPU only boot with "config_amd.plist" also disable iGPU completely in BIOS. This will use iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS without iGPU System Integrity Protection is Enabled by default. If you need to boot with SIP disabled you may use "config_debug.plist" or disable it manually in Clover settings. If you want Enabled SIP but with allowing unsigned kexts you may boot with "CsrActiveConfig = 0x01"  
      What is not working:
      -  
       
      Not tested:
      Thunderbolt (no equipment)

      Getting ready for installation:
      Download the bootpack (Clover v5126): Click here -> Z170-DELUXE_Clover_v5126.zip (Tested: El Capitan 10.11.6 -> macOS Big Sur 11.0.1)  
      Installation:
      Create an installer with any method you know (- Mac: createinstallmedia, gibMacOS - Windows: Transmac, Vmware, Win32diskimager, gibMacOS) Copy my Clover folder to the USB's EFI folder Boot with the Installer USB If you have any problem (kp or freeze) boot with config_debug.plist to see what causes the issue  
      Post Installation:
      Download Clover Configurator and generate a new Serial Number for yourself  
      Some pictures:

       
       



       
      El Capitan 10.11.6
       
      Sierra 10.12.6
       
      High Sierra 10.13.6
       
      Mojave 10.14.6
       
      Catalina 10.15.7
       
      Catalina & Windows 10 Dual-Boot (clean install, on one drive):
       Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it doesn't matter what you choose), 1 for Mac)
       Install Mac, boot with your USB, mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder (if there is no folder), copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart
      Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type: 
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi  
      You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT (UEFI) installer, also disconnect all external storage drives (except the installer USB)  
      Mounting EFI from Windows:
      Open cmd in administrator mode and type: mountvol b: /s (This will mount your EFI) Open Total Commander or Explorer++ in administrator mode to manage EFI mountvol b: /d (This will unmount your EFI)

      Notes:
      According to @albertoacj's comment Sidecar is only working in headless iGPU mode when using an AMD GPU, keep that in mind No need to change anything inside Clover from El Capitan to Big Sur For macOS Mojave and older you might need the full AirPortBrcmFixup.kext for full WiFi support

      In Big Sur Apple decided to exempt many of its apps from being routed thru the frameworks they now require 3rd-party firewalls to use (LuLu, Little Snitch, etc.)
       
      Q: Could this be (ab)used by malware to also bypass such firewalls?
       
      A: Apparently yes, and trivially so.
