are you using HDMI then try DVI or Displayport

and check if your clover config.plist set NVidia to false under <key>Graphics</key>

I'm using DisplayPort to an Acer XB270HU. And yes, it is set to false. still not working.


I'm not sure you read my whole post.

I have a question, and I feel like the answer may be just waiting until the dust clears a bit with the buzz of the Beta Pascal Drivers.

So, I had my hackintosh up and running solidly back a while ago with my GTX 680 installed. Anyway, I set it up as a dual-boot machine and switched more heavily toward Windows use as my primary OS, which led me to selling my 680 last October and upgrading to a 1080 and despite knowing my hackintosh would cease working, I didn't look back. But I kept holding out hope for Nvidia to release those drivers. Fast forward to today and it seems that hope has been rewarded!! Pretty excited about these developments. So that leads me to my question:

How can I update the drivers without being able to boot into the current hackintosh installation? Is this possible?

My Build is as follows:
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3
i7 3930k (No onboard video unfortunately, so sadly that's not an option for booting into the hackintosh to update)
GTX 1080

Anyway, the Partitioned ssd with Sierra installed on it has been sitting untouched since the removal of the 680 and am hoping there would be a way to update the video drivers to Pascal without booting into it. I'd rather not have to go get a Maxwell card, install it, update the drivers and swap cards again to do this, if at all possible. Any ideas? I really appreciate any help; Thanks Guys!

Any ideas?

BIOS - Disable Integrated graphics - PEG as Primary
Boot with nv_disable=1
Install web drivers
Config.plist - Do not inject Intel or Nvidia graphics
Edit config.plist - NvidiaWeb = true https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/new-method-for-enabling-nvidia-web-drivers-in-clover.202341/
May need to emulate NVRAM - Problem 6 - https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solving-nvidia-driver-install-loading-problems.161256/
Remove nv_disable=1 from config.plist
Restart

No luck yet, I also don't have any onboard video with the 3930k, so that isn't an option in my BIOS, and then I can't get passed booting with the nv_disable=1, I just get a black screen and then the system reboots. Though, after trying to boot the partition for the first time in 9 months, I did discover that it currently has Mavericks version 10.10.10 installed (I thought it was at least running El Capitan, but guess I was mistaken) and not Sierra since I havent used it since that released. Is that going to be a problem for updating to Pascal? And if so, how can I update to Sierra without onboard video?

Thanks, brother!

And, what is the benefit of dual cards on macOS? SLI works? apps with cuda support detects dual cards? thanks :)
SLI doesn't work with OS X but yes, apps designed for it can use both cards to decrease rendering time in image editing, video editing, 3d modelling and CAD.
