for me no web drivers will boot with no gfx support, i have 750 TI

maybe my nvram related, how to clear nvram?

 

Not sure but I think it's :

 

 

sudo nvram -d

 

But I have to say that my 730 is supposed to be a Kepler. For an unknown reason, it never worked with OS X stock kexts in previous versions. Sierra fixed it but it doesn't necessarily mean that Maxwell support (i.e. for 750 Ti models) has been added…

no

 

sudo nvram -c

 

 

% nvram --help

nvram: (usage: no such option as --)

nvram [-x] [-p] [-f filename] [-d name] [-c] name[=value] ...

-x use XML format for printing or reading variables

(must appear before -p or -f)

-p print all firmware variables

-f set firmware variables from a text file

-d delete the named variable

-c delete all variables

name=value set named variable

name print variable

Note that arguments and options are executed in order.

Ok, like mine - however no issue here... it could only be an issue with the cache. Try to uninstall web driver then reboot with nv_disable=1. Then reinstall web driver and reboot. Be sure you're booting with nvda_drv=1.

 

Otherwise, you can still boot with FakeID (0x108110DE).

After upgrading to DP3 from DP1 my Zotac GTX970 went to endless reboot. I can only get to boot if I set nv_disable=1. I'm using clover 3650v. I've tried the solution that was mentioned here but no go :( . Anyone have a working solution for DP3 - GTX970? B)

 

 

Got it working again. Here is what I did.

 

1. Boot nv_disable=1

2. Delete EmuVariableUefi in Clover

3. Reboot in Safe Mode

4. Run Kext Utility

5. Reboot with the default nvdrv=1

in my system web drivers are not loaded, when using nada_drv=1 system reboots , no flags system is up but web drivers are not loaded...how to verify that the drivers are loaded?

I did a clean install, update to DP3, install web drivers followed by CUDA...

1.I did not got DP3 working. DP2 was Ok.

2.So did a fresh Beta1 install  with nv_disable=1; then upgrade via Applestore to Beta 2 (=same dev as DP3)

3.Install Nvidia Webdrivers and reboot with nvda_drv=1

 

I think CUDA is not( yet) ready compatible for Sierra !

in nvidia website they say CUDA 7.50.3 is compatible with Sierra , anyway need to find a stand alone DP2 for that because in Applestore i only see DP3

Well all I can find on Nvidia website is this:

 

New Release 7.5.30

 

    •    CUDA driver update to support MAC OS X 10.11.5, macOS 10.12 Developer Preview and NVIDIA display driver 346.03.10f01

Recommended CUDA version(s):

 

    •    CUDA 7.5

Supported MAC OS X

 

    •    10.11.x

    •    10.10.x

    •    10.9.x

 

The problem with this information is that the drivers working under macOS Sierra 10.12 DP3 orPB2 is 367.05.10.05b07

and for OSX 10.11.6 the latest is 346.03.15f02

 

I tested the latest Cuda Z (CUDA-Z 0.11.259 SVN)  on my  Sierra PB2 with Cuda 7.5.30

 

Result:

 

~ $ /Applications/CUDA-Z.app/Contents/MacOS/CUDA-Z ; exit;

Killed: 9

logout

Saving session...

...copying shared history...

...saving history...truncating history files...

...completed.

Deleting expired sessions...none found.

 

Futhermore:

 

With the latest CUDA Toolkit v7.5

 i've got this:

So I think we have to wait a little more....

I did some testing with Luxmark 3.1  with Sierra B2 and the latest webdrivers, and there is improvement !

 

OSX 10.11.6: Luxmark 3.1 (OpenCL 1.2):GPU 9675;CPU/GPU:11557

mac OS 10.12 Beta 2: Luxmark 3.1 (OpenCL 1.2):GPU 11300 ; CPU/GPU:13042

 

Furthermore I saw the mention Metal platform 1v2 ! since the latest Webdriver update !

can i update public beta 2 on top of DP1?

Didn't try it, but from DP2 to PB2 didn't work for me !

 

If you want à quick PB2 install do this direct method: (you have to be in macOS Sierra and need an other HD !)

 

1.Download PB1.app and copy it in Applications of your DP1 disk

2.Download this app macOS Sierra installer HD v1.7

3.Install a clean PB1on a HD with this app

4.Install latest Clover with the same macOS Sierra installer HD v1.7 app and finalise your EFI/CLOVER boot configuration on the HD

5.Boot in PB1

6.Upgrade to PB2 via AppleUpdate

that's All

Hi @ROBASEFR

 

I did a clean install of public beta, I use the Sierra installation app, update to PB2 than boot with nvda_drv=1 system reboots.

booting with nv_disable=1 and check nvram in terminal show that nvda_drv is OK, nvram -p > nvda_drv=1

am i missing something?

Do i need to inject nvidia?

can you please post your clover folder?

thanks
