I hear similar thoughts with every OSX/MACOS update. What would you expect? GUI overhaul like Win7/Win8/Win10 - people hated it, so nice that Apple didn't go that way.
Continuity/iCloudSync/Siri/"Smart" storage capacity management - I really really like these features in Sierra

To Update or Not: Just wanted some other's options - I just did my first hackintosh, have El Capitan however still don't have Audio or NVIDIA graphics working - so I'm thinking "why not" make the leap to Sierra - or is there more that could possibly go wrong???

Thank you!
Added key with my board ID to: S/L/E/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist
Instead of the black monitor it now just reboots. Am I missing something? It supposed to work with NVIDIA Web Drivers? Or with native clover-injected ones?

EDIT: Reinstalled NVIDIA Web Drivers, behavior remains the same. The last thing I see in verbose screen before it turns off monitor is that some NVIDIAWeb kext loads OK (no panics).

Did you edit the kext directly, if so did you rebuild caches etc?

I actually took a copy of the kext first, made the necessary updates and then used "kext utility" (though I am sure KextBeast from TonyMac site will work too) per bilbo123's original post to install the updated kext.

I do not know what they did in this latest version Sierra 10.02.1... just know that finally the speed of my RAM is correct in "About My Mac", which had never happened before!:clap:

Hi Guys, I have been trying to get my Z68X-UD3H-B3 up and running, I haven't had macos running on here since Lion but want to come back and give it a shot. I managed to get Sierra running with network but had no luck with graphics (have to run with nv_disable=1 to get to desktop (I have a GTX 570 with none standard device ID of 1086 which I have had trouble with in the past) I have latest clover installed and UEFI bios U1n. What would be great is a pack of the files needed for clover and suggestions for my card to work. Thanks Guys.
I was gonna PM some of you with my board but don't have enough posts yet :/

Ya if you use macpro3,1 try with another Smbios def. If you continue having problems, go to library, delete all about appstore inside Cache folder, reboot and try download again ;)

Try boot with flag nv_disable=1 and if you are using one of this Smbios (macpro6,1, imac15,1 or imac17,1) you need to patch/edit applegraphicscontrolkext. Install the supported nvwebdrive, change the boot flag nvda_drv=1 and reboot. Doing this, its suppose not have more black screen until the next updade.
Thx for your reply! allready got it working (also without the webdrivers, because they dont support pb1 yet)
all ive done is changing the systemdefs via clover from macmini to imac 13.2 (the most closest to my system because im on ivybridge...) reboot... done! Working!... :thumbup:
