Thank you thank thank you, this is exactly what i've been searching for but couldn't find!

I play a lot of VR but use OS X for work and the 970 just doesn't cut it any more for VR ;)
You're most welcome! My configuration is working like a charm. I hope yours will too!

By the way, do you know if it's possible to run this with one AMD and one NVIDIA card? Or must it be the same?
I really don't know. I don't have an AMD to test :(

Your config.plist is corrupt and that is the same as having no file at all.

"Found non-key inside <dict> at line 98"


I've Scrapped the old plist file and started from scratch. Thank you!

I have Started from Scratch , and still can't get my Nvidia Drivers to work. Used 7.1 Unibeast.

Tried:

Method 4:

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Enter this command (it is one line)

    sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist
  3. Arrow down to where you see <key>ConfigMap</key>
  4. For the iMac15,1 locate the board-id "Mac-42FD25EABCABB274" and change string below it from "Config2" to "none". For the MacPro6,1 you will do the same thing but for the board-id "Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6". For the iMac17,1 you'll have to see which board-id is declared in your config.plist SMBIOS: "Mac-B809C3757DA9BB8D" or "Mac-65CE76090165799A" or "Mac-DB15BD556843C820" and change the appropriate entry to "none".
  5. Save the file by pressing Ctrl+O, then enter.
  6. Exit by pressing Ctrl+X
  7. Rebuild the kernel cache using the following two commands in terminal:

    sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
    sudo kextcache -system-caches
  8. Reboot
Did not work.


Using Mac Pro 6,1

I have tried also

1. Mount EFI Partition
2. Open /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with text edit, Xcode, or Plist Editor Pro
3. Edit as shown below:

Code (Text):
<key>SystemParameters</key>
<dict>
<key>InjectKexts</key>
<string>YES</string>
<key>InjectSystemID</key>
<true/>
<key>NvidiaWeb</key>
<true/>
</dict>

4. Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary
5. Save and reboot


But still no luck , Everytime I reboot it still uses OSX Default Graphics.

I have run out of ideas.

Your config.plist is corrupt which is the same as having no config.plist at all :
"Found non-key inside <dict> at line 98".

Either you uploaded the wrong file or you made the same mistake as before.

Im very interested in some positive results on the iBooks / Xcode / Metal bug. Can someone else confirm its working now with this latest driver ? This is the last thing holding me back from upgrading to Sierra.

No, it's not fixed, and I'm beginning to think it never will be. Might be better to consider AMD Radeon-based GPUs from here on out (despite the sleep issues).

* I do not know what to do if the playlist is still corrupted it has to do with either multibeast or the installer?
None of the options work and every time I reboot I still don't have NVDIA drivers.

I really appreciate your help :) Is it better I just install El Capitan and update from there?

Good news, the config.plist (Property List not Playlist) that you uploaded is no longer corrupt.
I have made a few changes to it.
