I foolishly did the security update as well (shame on me).

I opened the NVDAStartup.kext and changed the build number in the Info.plist to match the current build (14F1021). It seems like it may have done the trick for now. It seems to be using the NVIDIA Web Drivers with the new security update. I guess we'll see if it crashes and burns.

UPDATE: Spoke too soon... it rejected the extension and the thing has gone officially nuts. Oh well. Hoping for an update soon.

Having the same issue with a client's computer. He updated, graphics failed, and I can't find anything that'll fix it, including changing the build number, different driver versions, beta drivers, kext utility permissions repair, terminal kext commands - nothing. Just won't work with Nvidia drivers any more.

I really hope I can figure this out for him!

For me this is working!

Using Terminal enter the following:

sudo pico /System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartup.kext/Contents/Info.plist

Then change the line

<key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
<string>14F27</string>


to

<key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
<string>14F1021
</string>



Press Control+O then enter to save the changes and then press Control+X to exit

Then enter the following two commands. Hit enter after each one

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
sudo kextcache -system-caches


Reboot.

Yeah, I've already done that, but it's still booting to black. Clover Configurator (EFI) settings are all correct as they were before (dart=0, nvda_drv=1, and kext-dev-mode=1 - with NvidiaGeneric checked as well) and it still boots to a black screen with the latest drivers. Maybe an uninstall/reinstall will work. Will try that now.

Edit: when I uninstalled the drivers, I got video again on reboot, but after reinstalling them, black screen again after boot up load. UGH.

Trying to make this work on a GA-Z97X-UD7 with a Gigabyte 970 4GB.

I don't recall doing any sort of security update and I am getting OSX version error on the 10.10.5 drivers, using the one from the link, and the newer ones from December.

Any ideas here how to fix this?

Thanks
