Looks like the right place. It is not 10.10.3 but I am unsure why your kext is missing the info.plist and the version.plist.

On another note, are you using a 21:9 monitor? If so, which one and how do you like it?

I have the same issue. My kext is missing the info.plist and the version.plist. Looks just like the above screen (minus that sweet 21:9 ratio).

This is on a new install, just set up last night, via the guide.
After some experimenting with a mix and match of boot flags, I finally got Yosemite installed and working (without graphics acceleration), but plugged into the nVidia card's HDMI.

I got brave and installed the nVidia web driver, and now have to use nv_Disable=1 to boot successfully. Plus, after the driver install, I get random freezes that require a reboot.

I got it for 300 from staples as somebody ordered it and didnt want it. Anyhow im giving up on the whole 4k thing for a while. My system is super stable and I best not mess with it anymore. Im going to keep it at the current profile of mac 3.1 as I hear that is the most stable. I dont know if it makes a difference or not anyways. The gtx 970 supports the 21x9 as well as osx :)

Thanks for the input about the monitor. There aren't many reviews of the 21:9 stuff. I am debating the Asus PB298Q and the LG 29UM65 (or the 29UM67 if it ever comes out). I am currently on a 22" 1080P Samsung so the 29" 21:9 will be a huge difference for me.

Save changes and reinstall kext. Reboot.

Now I have my system fully working again, with Nvidia graphics + MacPro 6,1 sys def.



F60DEB81FF30ACF6 change from Config 2 to none.

Mine says Config1
I have another entry for config2
Tried changing both in different combinations to none and nothing works.

Tried changing definitions as well with no luck

Currently on Mac Pro 6.1

Any ideas?

Got it to work, however my native resolution is now gone. The highest I can go is 1080p and it's an ASUS 2560x1440 monitor.

Anyone have any clue what's going on here?

UPDATE: Really stupid fix, use display port and not HDMI.

All working :D :D

Just installed 10.10.3 with Clover, managed to get everything working on iMac 15,1 Retina 5K (using Clover Configurator) although I have to use nv_disable=1 to boot, otherwise I see the apple boot logo and then after that it says no signal.Do I need to install the correct graphics drivers? I'm using FakeSMC.kext and AppleIntelE1000e.kext in my EFI partition. Any advice would be great, thanks!
