Interesting note: in the comments Pike R Alpha says he runs his system with SIP fully enabled and loads all unsigned kexts via the boot loader. I know this is pushing against years of inertia in this community and a bit like tilting at windmills, but it really seems like that's how things should be run in general. Guess I'm experimenting tonight...


Thanks for the information. I've made a script that uninstalls previous web driver, downloads the driver package then tries to user-approve the kexts before installing and rebuilding the caches, hoping this might allow for clean installs without changing the SIP settings which is not really ideal. Credit to Pike R Alpha's for his documentation here.

Yeah fam, you should always load all the unsigned kexts you can from the boot-loader. Vanilla is the way to go.

New driver update:

change Rt Var to 0x0, restart, update and change back to 0x67, restart.

Everything works fine, not sure if changing it back to 0x0 is necessary for updating driver, but I did it anyways.

First of all, I'd like to thank the community of this forum for helping when we're lost. As I sure am right now.
Secondly, please, please, please be indulgent with my english. (I will try to do my best to be clear)

I'm working with a Mac Pro 5.1 mid 2012 (3,2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon, ATI Radeon HD 5770 1 Go,
32 Go 1066 MHz DDR3)

I have installed High Sierra ( 10.13 17A405 ) and its latest patch.

To be honest, I'm a very dumb about about OS, drivers. But as a mainstream customer, I read that the latest Nvidia GPU (series 10) could work with Sierra . So I bought a new GPU :
ASUS GeForce GTX 1050 Ti - ROG STRIX-GTX1050TI-4G-GAMING

I have installed the latest beta drivers on nvidia website (even If i saw in the supported product list, that my GPU wasn't there). The drivers installation worked. But when I installed the new card, the screen stayed black (I have waited more than 15 mn, and tried it a few times)

When I put back my original ATI radeon card, the mac pro works.

My question : what did i do wrong. I tried to PRAM the machine (do we say that ?) and still nothing. I have tried for days, to understand, but it's a bit like reading chinese (no offense) to me. If you can help me, link me, advise me, it would be very very nice.
