    That makes sense. It's just more reason to get power management working right and to stick with hardware that's as close to real Macs as possible to avoid having to make such low level mods.

    I just wanted to add physically, in the hardware, make sure your first GPU (atleast one of them) is plugged into the PCIEX16 because if it's plugged into an x8 or an x4 then it will not run correctly and you'll get the black screen! X16 is generally the one closest to the CPU! You may need an extender depending on how bulky your GPU/CPU Cooler is/are. That's what I ended up doing. Just sharing some knowledge that took me weeks to find to help out the next guy or gal.

    NvidiaGraphicsFixup is superseded by WhateverGreen.
    Using them together is not supported and will lead to undefined behaviour.
    Make sure you use the latest versions of Lilu and WhateverGreen.

    Hi I am having some issues with this part. I think I may have screwed something up because, after I rebooted I can't see my macOS boot drive in Clover. I can only see "boot fileVault" (does nothing), "boot macOS install Prebooter from preboot" (also does nothing), and "boot recovery from recovery".

    So I totally mess something up?

    Hi,

    I've just successfully made a fresh install of macOS High Sierra but I got some troubles to get my GPU work correctly.
    As long as I've not installed web drivers, everything seems to be fine. But After installing Nvidia web drivers and enable it into clover, my system start to act strangly.

    The problem is on startup, when web drivers are enable (I can see NVDAStartupWeb : Web on logs) macOS take 10 min to start and when I finally see the desktop, it seems to be unstable. The strangest things is I can't see the GPU's anymore into the "about this mac" pop up or into the system report, in the PCI list. Looks like when I enable web drivers the system is so slow and can't see my graphics cards.

    Anyone got an idea ? I already tried different tricks with clover but without success.

    Configuration :

    - Asus Sabertooth X99 (up to date and patched)
    - i7 6950X
    - 2x GTX 1080
    - 64 GB RAM
    - NVMe 970 (APFS)

    Thanks.
