NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for 10.10.4 (346.01.03)

All good for me. I had to set clover to boot without cache for the first reboot after install (the one that you do with nv_disable=1 so that the drivers can be installed).

Also wonder why Nvidia is now Hackintosh-friendly? Guess they don't exactly care if people Hackintosh or not, and if those drivers are used for Hackintoshes? Well done Nvidia.

Meaning? Without cache?

Once in the clover screen, I pressed space and picked "boot without cache". I guess it ignores the kextcache for that boot. It could also have been that I made a mistake in booting the first time around.

Thnx a lot
I'll try


Nothing my friend. Can't boot with GTX 760, only with intergrated GPU. One thing I noticed that if I try to uninstall and reinstall web drivers then "drivers not compatible with this os". Very weird. I was always made update from nvidia with no problems.

This is why mostly everyone in the Hackintosh scene loves NVIDIA and they do have a monopoly in the Hackintosh business. Not only that but many professionals in the industry also use Hackintoshes with NVIDIA graphics which helps NVIDIA drive sales up.

As for Apple, they clearly know that NVIDIA helps the hackintosh community. Not sure if Apple secretly gets a cut on sales as they don't really mind lol

I remember having this problem when OS X drivers loaded up instead and not the web drivers. Did you check the web drivers option on the NVIDIA settings before reboot?

Yes I have checked and it loads nvidia web drivers.
Something's wrong with clover I believe.

Solved!
I found out what went wrong.
SMBios was iMac 15.1 (didn't boot)

With MacPro 5.1 it's ok. But it's not the right SMBios for my build. Anyway it works.

We recommend you don't use iMac15,1, Mac Pro 4,1, Mac Pro 5,1 or Mac Pro 6,1 as these System Definitions cause problems for hackintoshes. Use Mac Pro 3,1 SysDef for loading the Web drivers and then optionally change to iMac14,2 if the Mac Pro 3,1 is not meeting your performance needs.
