I tried searching but couldn't find the right keywords -

I had everything working with my 960 and upgraded to 1080 and now my display sleeps when clover comes up. I have OS X set to auto boot so it will boot and work fine but I can't see the GUI to select my windows disk, although if I time it right, I can arrow over blindly and select it. Did I miss something in the instructions to get Clover to show up with these new cards?

Check your bios to make sure that PEG is set as the primary device.

What a strange problem. You seem to suggest you get video, like the BIOS splash screen, then the display sleeps as Clover comes up. Do you have 1 monitor plugged into both the internal GPU and the discrete GPU? This doesn't make sense to me unless you're doing that. If you're doing that, hit the input on the monitor and toggle to the right input.

If that's not it, then we need to simplify things. Have one monitor, connected only to DVI out on the discrete GPU, and set BIOS to discrete GPU as primary. The other thing would be to make sure Clover is up to date.

I did have an issue where I had a successfully booting system, and I updated clover, and the monitor turned off during OS load. But that's not what you're seeing.

Yeah thats exactly what's happening. I only have one display. I updated to the latest clover, and tried moving my dp cable to another port on the gpu but it didn't make any difference.

Verify that onboard iGPU is disabled. Check that innit display is set to PEG not IGFX.

Yep, just tried both options. With IGD enabled, OS X kernel panicked on boot, but I did manage to see the clover boot screen a couple times. I returned the setting to PEG and OS X booted fine but no clover screen again. Weird one...

Appreciate the help.

You have a lot of garbage in drivers64UEFI. You also have CsmVideoDxe-64.efi which is most likely the cause of the problem your having. You also have OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi, OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi never a good idea to mix both. Remove the following AppleImageCodec-64.efi, AppleKeyAggregator-64.efi, AppleUITheme-64.efi, CsmVideoDxe-64.efi, FirmwareVolume-64.efi, OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi, SMCHelper-64.efi.
