Nvidia Web Driver updates for macOS High Sierra (UPDATE Oct 30, 2019)

2,013 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello dear InsanelyMac Forum Memebers,

 

so I recently upgraded from a 2011 MBP with GPU failure to a 2014 MBP with the nVidia GT 750M,

 

after I re-booted my old Backup on the new MBP still running 10.13.6 I started to figure out the whole nVidia Driver thing.

 

I made the CUDA work with a lots of googleing and patience.

 

I upgraded to the new Security Update last night and now everything is screwed up again.

 

Now my question is: How long does it usually take for the Web-Driver thingy to be updated by nVidia after security update?

 

or is it worth loading the old backup again and totally re-adjust my mac again,

it's gonna take me a day but better than waiting 2 moths for an update?

 

maybe someone here can help me, I'd very much appreciate it. thanks. :)

ok wow, that was quick, thanks so much to the person who updated the webdriver.

 

now that everything seems to be working and I dont get any error messages anymore,

 

how does one check if the Graphics Card is actually activated?

 

if my Cinema4D says OpenGL Hardware enabled, does that mean it's actually gonna use the card for only for heavy tasks or all?

 

sry for noob question but I'm new to all this nVidia vs Mac thing.

 

cheers.

Yes; OP just wasn't updated when I posted the build number for that very and obvious reason. :P

Nope, Web Drivers support stop at Pascal cards and High Sierra. That Turing card is just unsupported/no good on a Hackintosh.

 

Do a little homework for you next card before purchasing... :whistle:

Off-topic! Please search the forum 'and/or the Web), there are plenty of threads relating to that matter. Open a new thread in the Graphics Cards section if necessary.

Well, this time I waited a few days to let things "settle" to see if they released a "Fix of the Fix..." - like the last couple times.  Pleased to see that (17G9016) did NOT get re-released with a new Version.

 

Updated Mid-2010 Mac Pro 5,1, (first this time), to 10.13.6 - (17G9016).  Had a HUGE scare when instead of getting to the Login Screen, the Update changed to a BLACK Screen for 25 Seconds - Then got to the Login.  Of course, since the Web Driver was then Incompatible, got the Flickering Screen during Login attempt.  Typed in my Password, hit Enter, got a small spinning circle under my Login and after 25 Seconds of this, the Mouse Cursor went to Rainbow Wheel of Death!

 

Since I've NEVER had a problem with Updates on the Mac Pro before, I was scared to DEATH here!!!  I forced shutdown of the System, rebooted, and this time NO BLACK Screen, got to Login, NO FREEZE this time, and System functionality was "Normal"...  Updated NVIDIA Web Driver, rebooted again, got back into System "Normally" for a second time...  Confirmed I was on (17G9016), confirmed I was on the new Web Driver, confirmed the Web Driver was Selected and Running.

 

All seems well, now!  Don't know what the issues were.  I'm hoping she gets to "Normal" Number Crunching tonight.

 

I have NO CLUE what this will mean for my i7 7700K Hackintosh!  (A little scared here...  Wish me luck.)

 

 

Good Luck to everyone else.  :)

Updated Hackintosh to (17G9016) and Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.132.  Had issues here, too.  After getting back to the Desktop, NVIDIA Updater COULD NOT connect to the Internet to Update the Web Driver.  Rebooted TWICE and still couldn't get Internet connection from my Fenvi FV-T919 WiFi/BT Card!  Luckily I had DL the File prior to performing the Update, so I installed ".132" Manually.  Rebooted, AGAIN, and THIS TIME had Internet!  Even went back to the NVIDIA Driver Checker and this time it said "No Updates".

 

So, beware, this (17G9016) Update CAN be buggy for some.  A friend of mine Updated his iMac after I Updated my Hackintosh.  For some reason only known to Apple, his iMac DID NOT encounter issues on Updating.

 

Good Luck everyone.

hi I would like to install the recent 387.10.10.10.40.132 driver on my 10.13.4 system. How to do that again? I think it was possible to change the Info.plists in the driver and temporarily change the system version.plist? Wasn't there a script for that, too?

But it shows me "387.10.10.10.30.106 is already installed.". I wanted to install 387.10.10.10.40.132 to my 10.13.4 system.

 

I do not know why people are using using some kind of scripts or github to get latest nvidia web drivers version while we already have dedicated topics and even an app that will do the job for you -  NVIDIA Web Driver Updater    :rolleyes:

In order to PROPERLY utilize the New Web Driver ending ".132", you MUST be on the Latest 10.13.6 High Sierra OS.  I DON'T remember where 387.10.10.10.30.106 falls into, I think 10.13.4 but NOT entirely sure...  IF you are NOT on 10.13.6, kindly Update your OS to the Latest 10.13.6, and your NVIDIA Web Driver Updater WILL tell you to Update to 387.10.10.10.40.132.

 

There is ONLY ONE Official Web Driver Release from NVIDIA PER MacOS Release!  ".132" IS NOT for your System on 10.13.4.  I'm sure someone will come along and state that it "can be forced", BUT IT'S NOT intended for your current OS.

Hey guys,

I'm thinking of upgrading my 10.12 to an install of 10.13.6, but I would like to retain nvidia/cuda performance.

Should I do an update install or a Fresh Install?

I have a mid 2014 macbook pro with a nvidia 750m.

 

Can I  just install high sierra and update to the latest security update of '2019-006', is nvidia performance fixed with the latest web drivers?, or should I follow the directions at the bottom of this page, which is to only install up to security update 002?  https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1025945/cuda-setup-and-installation/mac-cuda-driver-fully-compatible-with-macos-high-sierra-10-13-error-/16

 

Thanks for any guidance of the best way to do this!  Or... should I just stay on 10.12?

Thank you, Biciolino.  :)  Since he's on the .106 Driver, he's on the (17E199) High Sierra OS.  As I stated, he MUST Update to 10.13.6 - (17G9016) High Sierra OS to achieve the ability to Update to the ".132" NVIDIA Driver.

Yeah, sorry, i misunderstood his request. I thought he was wondering why .132 drivers were not installable on 10.13.4 and asking which ones were. Besides, i see no reason for @Funcky Frank not to upgrade to 10.13.6. I too was forced to stay with High Sierra till a couple of weeks ago because of my GTX 1080 but it worked perfectly in 10.13.6 with .132 drivers.

I'm NOT sure what "performance" you are looking for in said Drivers.

 

I play some StarCraft:Remastered on my Hackintosh, (see Full Specs in Signature), I also do Scientific Number Crunching, (CUDA), on the two GPUs in the Hackintosh.  This Hackintosh was created with 10.13.3, and routinely Updated.  Now on 10.13.6 - (17G9016), with Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.132.  I've had NO issues on my Hackintosh.

 

Unless you have some program like ADOBE CS-6 Suite, (or older), that prevents you from Updating to High Sierra, I say go for it and Update.  I'm sure you'll notice on the Mac Pro 5,1 in my Signature that you'll see the Sierra 10.12.1 Drive.  This Drive will NOT be Updated because I DO have ADOBE CS-6.  However; the Primary Drive DOES have High Sierra 10.13.6 - (17G9016), and ALSO does Scientific Number Crunching on the two GPUs in that System.

 

It all depends on your 3rd Party Software Packages as to what OS you should be on, or consider Updating to.

 

ymmv

      NVIDIA ha rilasciato i driver grafici per macOS High Sierra 10.13

      Questi driver sono attualmente l’unico metodo per ottenere l’accelerazione grafica delle schede:

      -Pascal   GTX 1050, 1050 Ti, 1060, 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti, TITAN Xp
      -Maxwell GTX 750, 750 Ti, 950, 960, 970, 980, 980 Ti, TITAN X


       
      Per disinstallare i vecchi WebDriver attenersi alla seguente procedura: 

      1.) Aprire l'NVIDIA Driver Manager nella voce della barra dei menu.

      2.) Fare clic sull'icona del lucchetto e immettere la password dell'amministratore.

      3.) Fare clic sul pulsante disinstallazione.

      4.) Fare clic su disinstalla e continuare con la disinstallazione. Riavviare il sistema come indicato

      5.) Installare la versione originale del kext AppleGraphicsControl.kext (solo se lo avevate modificato in precedenza) in / S / L / E / tramite Kext Utility

      Ignorate questi passaggi se venite da un'installazione pulita di High Sierra


      Per installare il nuovo pacchetto WebDriver NVIDIA 10.13 distribuito ufficialmente, procedere come segue:

      1.) Scaricare e installare il pacchetto NVIDIA WebDriver HighSierra 10.13.pkg Durante l'installazione comparirà un messaggio di errore, ignoratelo e continuare l'installazione finché non vi verrà richiesto di riavviare il sistema.

      2.) Solo per chi ha smbios iMac 15,1 - iMac 17,1 - MacPro 6.1 Prima di riavviare mettere nella cartella kext other NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext.zip, NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext.zip e Lilu.kext per evitare il problema dello schermo nero dopo l'avvio del sistema
       
      3.) In alcuni casi è necessario impostare nel file .config il SIP (CsrActiveConfig) su 0x3

      4.) Ora riavviate il sistema. Al momento dell'avvio del sistema, avrete il WebDriver Nvidia completamente funzionante con supporto OpenGL e Metal 2

      ciao, 
       
      Ho appena acquistato una GTX 980, ho due partizioni , una con Sierra . e una con Yosemite, su Sierra ho installato i Web driver , messo webdriver al config.plist e tutto funziona a dovere. In Yosemite ho fatto la stessa cosa, al riavvio  non sono  piu  riuscito ad entrare nel sistema operativo, ovviamente ho usato le versioni dedicate per ogni sistema operativo a meno che non mi sia confuso e ho installato i driver sbagliati. Per rientrare ho provato di tutto, safe mode, staccando l'nvidia , provando ad entrare con l'intel integrata, provato a cambiare SMBIOS dalla partizione di Sierra.
       
      Come posso rientrare nel sistema? ce un modo per eliminare i driver manualmente da un altra partizione?
       
      grazie
