Not a 750ti but I've had no issues updating to El Capitan with a 970.
Good to hear. :thumbup: Did you update to El Cappy and reboot with nv_disable=1 to update to the nVidia El Cappy Web drivers?

Hi Stork, thank you for this guide, I too had a perfectly running Yosemite install on i5-4590 w/HD 4600, and wanted to upgrade to 750 ti. I deviated from your guide slightly, as my system is a bit hard to work on and I didn't want to unplug the card back and forth, so I booted with -x nv_disable=1 nvda_drv=0 and was able to load Yosemite, install the driver and add the flag to org.chameleon.boot.plist, which seems to have worked, but now I am getting full system freeze about 5 minutes after the boot. I wonder what might be causing it? I somewhat doubt that the way I did it is to blame, could it be that my card is another unfortunate design known to cause problems? MSI N750TI-2GD5/OC But again, it works fine for the first five minutes... scratching head here. Any pointers? Thanks again.

System specs: core i5-4590, Gigabyte GA-B85M Gaming 3 mobo, 16gb corsair vengeance 1600, 1tb HDD. Nothing fancy.

My system was fine until I updated my BIOS to F8. Then, I, too, had freezes after 5 minutes. However, I did install El Cappy tonight and no freezes. So, I think it's a BIOS setting. I'll review my BIOS settings and post the results here real soon now.

That's interesting. I just checked downloads for my board, and it only has up to F2, mine is F1, so really looking forward to seeing your settings. Much appreciated!

I'm thinking about building a hackintosh system around a Dell Optiplex 780, using the 750 TI card. At this point, it sounds like everything works in Yosemite-- is that correct? Or is the support in El Capitan good enough that I should just install that from the start? Thanks for the help

The 750 Ti is supported in both Yosemite and El Capitan. However, given the "newness" of El Capitan with it's USB problems, I'd normally recommend starting out with Yosemite, but since you can't get it from the Apple Mac App Store (MAS), you'll have to suffer through installing El Capitan and take advance of the maturing updates. But, don't update until nVidia publishes the appropriate Web Driver which is required for your GTX 750 Ti. BTW, what's the manufacturer & model of the GTX 750 Ti?


Additionally, since we're not telepathic, we need to know your system components. See the tonymacx86 Forum Rules & Policies on signature block components.

@Stork, Thanks for keeping this thread always up to date.

I am looking to pull the trigger to purchase these items today to build my first Hackintosh. Looking for you opinion since I will be running 6 monitors (1920x1080)

System: El Capitan

Monitors: 6 Samsung 24" 1920x1080

Motherboard: GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z97X-Gaming 3
- One DVI (Will need a DVI to HDMI for the Monitor)
- One HDMI
-- Supports 2 Screens

Video Card: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 750 Ti
- 4GB Version
- Two DVI Connections (Will need a DVI to HDMI for the Monitors)
- Two HDMI Connections
-- Supports 4 Screens.

CPI: i7-4790K

RAM: 32GB

Do you think the MB and the Video cards will be able to support the 6 monitors?

I am hoping the HDMIs are plug and play, that no issue of having the screens not turning on if waking up form sleep. and also the same for the DVI to HDMI.

This build is mainly for Development, Photoshop, Illustrator, Chrome (usually 50 tabs, 3 windows - I forget to close them).

Your input is very appreciated.

Thanks.
