Hello! I would like to get a help to overcome this difficulty.

I have used all the hardwares from "CustoMac Mini Deluxe", except the GPU that I was using previously (Currently I have EVGA GTX 750 Ti SC). Funny thing is that I installed yosemite 4 times with same device because of stupid mistakes that I have made(I didn't know how to fix, so I re-installed it again. The very first time, the GPU was recognized and able to be used, yet I don't know what I touched, but made the case worse since then, and never activated GPU since then.

I have followed the installation guide given in this website. I think I did everything that I found,
yet I can't clear three things.

1. No Bluetooth
(If possible with Gigabyte GA-Z97N-Wifi, please let me know what kext or option I need to choose from multibeast).
2. No Wifi (some say wifi works, some say it doesn't. Who is right?)
3. No screen showing after installing Nvidia Web Driver (WebDriver-343.02.02f03 file shown in http://www.tonymacx86.com/graphics/...rivers-security-update-2015-002-broken-6.html)

I use "nv_disable=1" in order to log in, I want to know what is wrong at this moment.
No kext warning shown on screen, which makes me difficult to ask questions.

Please let me know if you need more information regarding of this case.
Thank you!

Try to connect monitor on another port, avoid VGA connections.

Have you installed the latest security update with web driver or just installed the latest web driver??


What is happening in normal boot while using the flag "nvda_drv=1"??

If the screen remains black, then try booting with "nvda_drv=1 -f"


Good Luck...!

1. & 2. I removed the GA WiFi/BT combo card as a) the WiFi is not supported in OS X, b) no one has written a working Intel WiFi driver for OS X and c) the BT was sporadic. I installed a iMac WiFi/BT card which works, but you need an adapter card and longer antenna leads and two more antennas. See my signature block for how did it on Hector.

3. I could install Yosemite with my GTX 750 Ti as I outlined in my guide. Again, see my signature block for the link.

Hello
Thank you for your help.

I installed the web driver before I was asking questions.
And both of your suggestions didn't work with my computer.

The screen remains black and I tried RBG cable, HDMI cable, and both were able to show the setting page, yet the next step didn't follow up well.

Please let me know what other things I can do.
Thanks again!

I changed the SysDef to Mac Pro 3,1 and the graphic card works like a charming. You saved a lot of time for me.
Thank you!

If your installation's System Definition (SysDef) is not Mac Pro 3,1 (Early 2008 or MP3,1), run MultiBeast for Yosemite (without your .mb file) just changing the SysDef to Mac Pro 3,1 (MP3,1) as the nVidia web drivers won't install otherwise.
