Hello everyone. I have spent the last two days searching threads here and on the web trying to solve the problem that I have but I tried many solutions and still have the problem. You wouldn't believe, I actually made a working Sierra with a i7-7700k, that is a little bit difficult comparing to old chips, I was able to install and make everything work, except for the stupidest thing. The GPU. I have a 1070, I installed the last drivers, even updating after installing on the preference pane. I then had a problem, that was selecting then vodka driver every time I was rebooting. I also FIXED that! But, the real problem comes now. The GPU can't be detected. If I go into Nvidia Driver Manager and then ECC, the only thing that shows up is No device found. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling and using different boot flags, but nothing.
I am using iMac 14,2
i7-7700K
MSI Z270 Krait
EVGA GTX 1070 SC
Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 16GB 3000MHz
Please help me solving this problem, thank you!!

That would be because your graphics card does not have ECC RAM.

BIOS - Disable Integrated graphics - PEG as Primary
Use a digital connection - DVI or HDMI - VGA is not supported.
Boot with nv_disable=1
Install web drivers
Config.plist - Do not inject Intel or Nvidia graphics
Edit config.plist - NvidiaWeb = true As per Link
May need to emulate NVRAM - Problem 6
Remove nv_disable=1 from config.plist

Your GPU doesn't have ECC VRAM, so the Nvidia Tool is reporting it correctly.
Please attach config.plist

I just did everything here, the guide to edit config.plist wasn't useful because I already had the exact same parameters, and the other link, problem 6, was already a solution that I found when I first got this problem, so I tried everything listed under problem 6 solutions, but nothing changed. I can boot with nv_disable=1 and I receive graphics with the info that you can see on my screenshot (Nvidia Chip 5MB) but if I go with nv_drv=1 or even without (relaying on the guide you linked to me, that is using another method to start the drivers) I get past the loading bar, and then all goes black and my monitor goes standby. I bet everything works under the black screen, cause the devices are responsive so the only problem here is the graphics..

*EDIT*
I forgot to mention, the only thing that I did that was different from the guides was that I had inject intel enabled in clover configurator, so I removed it from the boot flags, but still nothing

Check that you have disabled your integrated graphics in your BIOS settings.

Yeah I know, but I followed the guide to patch this NVRAM problem, installing EmuVariableUefi-64 and so on.
There is my config.plist

Your config.plist is bizarre to say the least.

GraphicsEnabler=Yes is only for the Chimera / Chameleon boot loader and has no validity in Clover.
Why boot with busratio=32 ?
Why select cpus=1 ?

GraphicsEnabler was one of the solution I found over the internet, but it's completely useless, so ignore that.
For cpus=1 and busratio=32, these are indispensable to make my 7700K to boot, because of the kaby lake architecture.

My motherboard has no option to completely disable integrated graphics. Please read here, I already selected peg

I think you may be mistaken there.
