HELP! I've been searching for a fix for my desktop.

It keeps having trouble loading into the login screen after boot screen. Only using the boot flag: nv_disable=1 will it boot up properly but with no graphics acceleration.

Tried using AGDPfix but to no avail.

CPU: i7 3770
Graphics: GTX 970
Running on: iMac 14,2

For a Z68 motherboard I would recommend using a iMac 13,2 system definition as this seems to work better for Z68 users.
I changed to iMac 13,2 but still gives black screen.

There is a long thread about this issue for some users that you should use for reference:

For changing board id info use the following thread for added information on the process:

Still not displaying and even worst. During boot, the system automatically shutdown.

-v mode states that the disk has crashed.... looks like I need to start all over again

Bad luck, that is frustrating when you have issues like this. Is this disk only for macOS or is it sharing a Windows partition?

It's a standalone disk for macOS
