i just installed sierra 10.12.6 today. everything works fine except the asus gtx1080 graphic card. it just wont detect it.
i have the lilu.kext and nvidiafixup one too, i tried all iMac 14,1 and 14,2 and 17,1 and 18,1 and many none work. i have web drivers enabled in the config.plist and also the latest web drivers installed in the hackintosh rig.
(p.s. i m on kaby lake i7 7700) can you suggest me a fix ?
also added ssdt-uiac.aml (dont know what it is for but a guide said so did it.)
also inject intel is deselected.
I had the very same problem with my previous build. I was forced to remove my GTX 1080 until I changed my mobo. After that it worked. I'm not sure if it was the Motherboard or whatelse, actually I've upgraded all my system. Btw I'm not using Lilu.kext neither nvidiafixup, I've just AGDPFixed my AppleGraphicsControl.kext, Lilu gave me some problems in the past.

EDIT: I'm using MacPro6,1 as SMBIOS, dunno if it can help or not.

I got it fixed. just ran MultiBeast and in UEFI Bootloaders I added + emulated NVRAM option, and it started working

Still have problems with my 1050ti. Glitches at Menu Bar and Scroll Bar, for example. 2 Solutions: Run 10.12.4, or run 10.12.6 with the web drivers of 10.12.4 and edit info.plist. Never backed up and restored as many as the last weeks ^^

Hi, to enable CUDA drivers, should I do the same for NVIDIA Web Drivers? Thanks

Here is my problem. I've got this error on my verbose screen after the installation of the new Nvidia drivers - no Graphics cards support, nothing showing in the card slot, no graphics support, just the message Nvidia Chip model 8 MB. It's a GTX980(sc) edition card.

FATAL GM204 not supported yet
FATAL unsupported chipset 0x124000a1

For those of you who are having issues with the new driver, I wonder if having multiple monitors connected to a more recent vintage card may be the cause of some issues. On my machine, I have three monitors, and I noticed that after the new driver was installed, I was unable to boot to the desktop even though I could see the Nvidia Web driver detected when booting. So, on a hunch, I unplugged one monitor, and the desktop boots right up. Plugging in the third monitor after I log in results in all monitors working like they did previously.

This reminds me of problems with old video cards from ten years ago back in the early days...

My upgrade went off without a hitch. Did the upgrade via MAS and on reboot installed the NVIDA web drivers. Reboot again and both monitors are up and running and no glitching video.

Anybody having issues with their GTX 1050Ti freezing the system or causing reboots after coming out of putting the display to sleep or from activating the screensaver? Running it on a Display Port using a LG 31MU97-B monitor Sierra 10.12.16 and Web Drivers.
