Could you please upload your config.plist? I can't get my hackintosh's graphics to work with HDMI on 10.13.6 (17G7024), a friend of mine got it to work but with displayport instead.

My specs: i5 3570k, GTX 1050TI 4GB, Gigabyte H61M-S2PV motherboard and a LG 2560x1080 monitor (HDMI).

The Post that you've quoted from me pertains to the Real Mid-2010 Mac Pro 5,1 System; NOT a Hackintosh.  So, NO Config.plist File to attach...

 

As for my Hackintosh settings, unfortunately I've NOT used the InsanelyMac method to "build" the System, I used "The-Unmentionable-Place's" Method.  So, I'm NOT sure my Config.plist will help.  Sorry....  :(  Also, I don't connect a monitor, at all, to my 1050 Card; I just use it for CUDA Number Crunching.  The Primary Card on the Hackintosh is the MacVidCards' GTX-1070 and IS connected via HDMI.  The Primary Card on the Mac Pro is the Mac GTX-970 and is connected via DVI-D.

 

Good luck, I hope someone else will be able to get you a good Config.plist file for you.

Hi, 

Sorry to be a newb about this but where does this driver come from? Nvidia does not seem to have a later driver for Mac than 387.10.10.10.40.105 - I did find an updated CUDA driver 418.163 and update to that. And will this install normally or does it need to be done in the shell?

 

Thanks for the help

 

Nvidia Web Driver - 387.10.10.10.40.128 --> build 17G7024 (thanks to flowriderNew!

Hi folks,

 

Not a hackintosh question, but maybe you experts can help me. I have been using the web driver on my 2012MBP (Geforce 650M) for a long time, but not without issues... which started at 'sierra' and kept going at first it would crash (kernel panic), but with this latest updates the problem changed (for the better) - instead of crashing it starts 'glitching' (screen artifacts) then the window server (or whatever that is called on osx) dies and takes me back to login screen - works fine when I log back in (for a while). Feels like somehting is getting corrupted in the driver code and the UI restart fixes it.

 

Ideas on how to make it better (except reverting to the vanilla driver, that performs like arse esp. on 2D accel). One thing that might be contributing to this is that I use windows 10 VM on Fusion with accel enabled (because without accel it performs like arse too :)

Well, as to the 650M and Web Drivers....  Yes, Web Drivers have had issues even going back to El Capitan.  However; the "glitching and artifacts" that you state are now cropping up happened to me on a used EVGA GTX-750TI SC Card in my first Hackintosh on El Capitan, 10.11.6.  Thankfully, I had a Secondary and identical card in another PCI-e Slot.  I called EVGA on this issue, and they told me that the Card was at fault - it was a "...Video Pipeline Issue...." AND TO no longer use the card to display to a monitor.  It WAS; however, just fine at Number Crunching calculations.  My solution was to reverse order the Cards in the respective PCI-e Slots, and make the Secondary Card now Primary, and the failing Card Secondary.

 

Thus, I suspect, (due to the age of that System you have, and the age of that particular Card/Device), that the 650M may be having internal issues.  Before stating this for fact, as you mention, you can force use the Apple Default Driver.  I would do this first and see if your artifact problems subside or continue.  IF they continue, the Card would be the likely culprit.

 

Since then; however, the MOBO on that Hackintosh took a dump, and I had to build the New Hackintosh listed in my Signature.

 

As to your Windows 10 issues, IF possible, stop using VM, purchase a 2TB Western Digital "MyPassport" USB Drive and use BootCamp to have Windows 10 installed Natively and just Dual Boot when you need Windows access.  Perhaps NOT as convenient as launching the VM in MacOS, BUT you'd get Native Speeds from Windows on the External Drive.  (Minus any bottleneck at the USB controller(s).  Or even USB 3 vs USB 2.)  At last check, the 2TB MyPassport USB Drive was going for $79 Plus Tax at my local computer source.  I'm sure you can get it off Amazon as well.

 

ymmv

 

Good luck, my friend.  :)

 

[EDIT:]

 

Also, as a recommendation...  Since you are using both Windows and MacOS, IF you take the External Drive route for Win 10, I HIGHLY recommend Paragon's NTFS for Mac application.  ($19.95 USD, one time charge.)  NTFS for Mac will allow you, from within MacOS, to Read AND Write to the Windows Drive.  I'm NOT entirely sure that this is possible in VM; however.  I use NTFS for Mac daily.  AND since going Hackintosh and using MacOS as my Primary Daily System, I have NOT rebooted into Windows since 2016.  However; as stated, I use NTFS for Mac daily.  I make new Folders on the Windows Drive from within MacOS and Save new Windows Files and Apps that I "might" choose to use should I reboot to Windows.

 

Like I said, though, since going MacOS I haven't needed nor had the desire to go back into Windows 7 Pro.  (AND I will NEVER have Win 10 on ANY of my personal Systems.  Unfortunately, dad has no choice.  So, I maintain his two Win 10 Pro Systems as needed.)

 

[EDIT 2:]

 

I also have Triple Boot on the Mac Pro 5,1 in my Signature.  (All drives listed in Sig.)  (MacOS High Sierra, Sierra, and BootCamp Win 7 Pro x64.)  For the BootCamp Drive situation; here too, I have NTFS for Mac on the High Sierra Drive.  Again, I'm able to Read AND Write from within MacOS to the Win 7 Pro x64 Drive.  NO VM needed...

Unfortunately, NO, because it IS a Turing, (RTX Style), Card that has been "cut down" and labelled as "GTX".  IT WILL NEVER be able to run in MacOS, UNTIL Apple and NVIDIA 'kiss-and-make-up' and release New Web Drivers WITH Turing Support.

 

[EDIT:]

 

ONLY Cards UP TO Pascal will work.  Pascals are "10x0".  (NOT 16x0, NOR 20x0.)

17G8029 just released - 2019-004 Security Update.

 

Now we need to wait for NVIDIA Drivers, again.

That doesn't work for Scientific Number Crunching under BOINC.  MUST have proper Web Driver for CUDA to function properly on my two GPUs.

How?

 

EDIT: Uninstalled existing drivers from the NVIDIA Driver Manager, rebooted and reinstalled drivers with nvidia-update which automatically patches the installer and everything works again.

New Web Driver: 387.10.10.10.40.129

 

Good luck everyone.  :)

 

[EDIT:]

 

Just Updated the Hackintosh, (in Signature), to 17G8029, and new Web Driver - 387.10.10.10.40.129.  No issues to report.

 

I will Update the Mac Pro at a later time.

FYI, Apple has pulled 2019-004 High Sierra & Sierra updates. Source

 

I would assume that the new nvidia web driver WebDriver-387.10.10.10.40.129 will work once the fixed 2019-004 updates are out again. This is why you never install brand new updates :)

Typically, I DON'T install Updates UNTIL NVIDIA releases the new Web Driver.

 

I don't know why Apple decided to pull the Update, my System, (with BOINC Number Crunching for SETI@Home), and all it's Software Peripherals is working just fine.

 

I will wait until they AGAIN release a new Update, and further wait to see IF NVIDIA releases a New Web Driver for that - THEN Update my System, again.

 

Good Luck everyone.

[EDIT:]

 

Just read the Article you Linked.  I turn Sleep OFF due to BOINC Number Crunching.  For IF my System were to Sleep, it WOULDN'T Crunch.

 

So, this is why I didn't notice the issue.  IF they do what they did last time, then Upon the New Update from Apple, NVIDIA will come out with a Newer Web Driver.

 

ymmv

just did a new build today it's now 17G8030 so now I can't make any nvidia drivers work. How long until someone writes (yet another) web driver for this build?

Replacing the current build in the info.plist does not seem to work any more. I was pulling my hair out all night after the security update to 17G8030. But I found this and solved my problems:

Miraculously, I now am updated to 387.10.10.10.40.130 !

 

Thank you,

I will Update my Hackintosh, again, later with the 17G8030 Update and the 387.10.10.10.40.130 NVIDIA Web Driver.  I will Edit this Post when done.  (May take a day as I'm using the computer most of today.)

 

I will Update the Mac Pro some time after getting the Hackintosh Updated.

 

Good luck everyone.  :)

FINALLY got time to Update the Hackintosh.  All went well, no problems, no issues.  Now on 17G8030 with NVIDIA Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.130.

 

Will try to get the Mac Pro Updated later.

 

Good Luck everyone.

Folks, I'm trying to run 387.10.10.10.40.130 on High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G8030). 

 

The web driver tool installed fine, but when I enable the driver it switches back to the "default macOS graphics driver". I don't even know where the error logs are. I'd appreciate some help here.

 

Installed using Olarila. Running Haswell-E cpu on Asus x99 board. Installation was smooth. Did not make any extra DSDT patches.

      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
