Hi there

Does anyone know how to install and enable CUDA Drivers without getting a boot failure?

My Hackintosh:
Z77N-WiFi, i7-3770, Nvidia GTX 650 Ti or GTX 760, Yosemite Nvidia Drivers work perfectly without CUDA!

Everything works fine. I only can't install the latest web drivers (WebDriver-343.01.01f01) without getting further problems. When i do so it results in a boot failure (gray boot screen) after a few reboots. The web drivers are the only possibility to enable the cudadriver-6.5.18-macos driver correctly. If I don't do a reboot the CUDA driver work with the web drivers. When I do a reboot later I only get a gray screen and the boot sequence stops. Booting -x gets the basic Hackintosh back. If I only install the CUDA drivers I get the gray screen at the first startup.

Excuse my english, thankful for every hint.

Here my org.chameleon.Boot.plist with the web drivers:

<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>No</string> *** tried Yes
<key>IGPEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string> *** tried No
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>nvda_drv=1</string> *** tried kext-dev-mode=1
<key>Legacy Logo</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>2</string>
<key>HDEFLayoutID</key>
<string>01000000</string>
<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>GeneratePStates</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>UseKernelCache</key>
<string>Yes</string>
<key>HDAEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>


This Config seam to work

Hate to get so close to necroing, but I am having the same issue. After getting everything setup, I install web driver because I like my 1080p monitors. And every freaking time I get a gray screen where the login screen would be. I know these drivers are correct for the OS version, and I know this driver is the issue because it only happens when I attempt to boot using the webdrivers. Booting with nv_disable=1 works, but then the drivers are disabled
. what is going on??!!?

- Are your internal graphics deactivated in the BIOS (as well as IGPEnabler=no) ?
- Nvidia web driver under yosemite ONLY works with both kext-dev-mode=1 and nvda_drv=1
- Nvidia graphics injection should also be disabled

Trying this now, also I haven't updated my build list bit currently I am running a 970 now, not a 770...

So internal graphics are disabled. My results for booting with the settings you suggested (kext Dev, IGPE, and nvidia DRV still get me to two gray blank screens.
