Hey folks,

Thanks for your constant help and awesome tools.
I'm currently doing a build for a friend and it's working great, except for the Graphics.

What I did:
Did my install per the guide, used Clover and some tips from this thread from a user who has very similar hardware to mine.
Did a regular install booting using nv_disable.
I installed the web driver using the nvidia-update script.
I installed Lilu and WhateverGreen (latest versions, checked today) on /L/E using Hackintool.

Problem:
When I'm booting with the web driver installed and no nv_disable, I get a black screen with a cursor, and then the login screen without cursor, and then black screen with cursor, and then login screen without... and so on...

General Status:
Everything seems to be working as expected, except for the audio that I haven't tested and the Graphics, since I have to boot with nv_disable to be able to login.

What I've tried to fix it:
Confirmed I'm using the latest Kexts for Lilu and WhateverGreen.
Confirmed I installed the correct (and latest) web driver.
Verified from IOReg that Lilu and WhateverGreen are being loaded.
Rebuilt the Kernel Cache.
Removed the GFX0 to IGPU, PEG0 to GFX0 & HECI to IMEI from my config.plist per the iDiot's Guide To Lilu and...
Confirmed nvram is working (I'm using EmuVariableUefi.efi) using Hackintool

Attached:

I'm completely stuck as I've read dozens and dozens of threads, tried a lot of solutions only to arrive to the same problem.
Switching to an RX series GPU is not an option right now, unfortunately.

Any help or pointers are greatly appreciated.

You may need the RC scripts too.
Thanks, I did install those!
I tested by adding a new arbitrary parameter to the nvram and confirmed it persists after even a cold boot.

Is there any other test I could run to make sure I installed those properly?

The web drivers will never work all the time that you are disabling them with nv_disable=1.
I only add it after testing that I can't boot with the new Clover Web Drivers Injection to continue booting and trying new stuff :(

I've also tested without nv_disable=1 and without the new injection method and adding nvda_drv=1, but I still get stuck in the boot loop with black screen with louse / login screen no mouse.

I'm using CSM as enabled and the iGPU as disabled in the BIOS.

Have you solved it? I have the same problem
My hardware:
i7-9700
ASUS PRIME Z370-P II
GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
I have been restarting cyclically on the lock screen. I do n’t know what to do. . .

The gap between the cycle restarts displays such a text, such as the attachment
