    This is caused because your board does not have native NVRAM support.
    Fix: setup emulated NVRAM to store the nvda_drv=1 boot flag in boot-args.

    See Problem 6 of the Solving NVIDIA Driver Install & Loading Problems topic

    Ok. I updated my config.plist file from 'dart=0' to 'dart=0 nvda_drv=1'. After following all the instructions on Problem 6, I still have the same issue where the settings refuses to stay toggled on the web driver option.

    Hey, having trouble finding the 'XCHI Mode' option, I've been able to find the XCHI Handoff with no problem, but as far as I'm aware I need to change XCHI Mode to 'Auto' in order to get my external USB HDDs to show up in Finder/Disk Utility.

    My board is Z170XP-SLI, and BIOS version is f20.

    If you or anyone could help me out with this or can offer any other solution to fix my USB Drive problem I would appreciate it.. first time hackintosh build haha!

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Sometimes my machine wont launch my external drive. Doing a restart, or starting up, with the drive plugged in fixes this every time for me.

    I was really hoping something simple like that would work... unfortunately not </3

    Do you have this board and are you running High Sierra?

    Yes I have this board, and I'm running High Sierra. Your external drive never mounts? Have you tried other externals?

    I'm sorry, I don't know what the issue is. Have you tried all USB ports? Are you sure your BIOS are set up correctly for USB to work? Can you use another peripheral with your USB ports?

    I have tried all the USB ports.. all my peripherals work in all the USB ports, the drives themselves power up, but they just are not selectable in disk utility or finder and I really have no idea why haha
