Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

You must use the boot-arg rootless=0 for El Capitan and you have to make sure that you rebuild the kernel cache.

I run commands
Code:
[FONT=Menlo]Dmitrys-iMac:~ dmitrykocherovets$ sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel[/FONT][FONT=Menlo]Password:[/FONT]
[FONT=Menlo]kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext FakeSMC.kext[/FONT]
[FONT=Menlo]Dmitrys-iMac:~ dmitrykocherovets$ sudo kextcache -system-caches[/FONT]
[FONT=Menlo]Dmitrys-iMac:~ dmitrykocherovets$
[/FONT]

and add rootless. But problem still exists.

I think problem begins from wrong detection. My card shows as 'NVIDIA Chip Model 7 MB'. But I do not know why.

Changing SMBIOS config has no influence on it.

After selecting in bios

OS Type - Windows 8
CSM Support - Never

card was detected as 'NVIDIA Chip Model 33 MB' and monitor shows the best static 4k image with possibility of half scaling. But web drivers still not working and acceleration is off. While windows moving the image is ugly.

You haven't modified the kext. Otherwise there would be a reference to it like there is for FakeSMC.kext.

However, I just noticed you also have nv_disable=1 in your config... remove that because it is disabling Nvidia drivers. Add nvda_drv=1 to your boot arguments.

Can you explain in more details on the first point?

I try nvda_drv=1 without nv_disable=1 after each modification.

After editing the kext, when you run the command

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

You should see something like this in the output

kext-dev-mode allowing invalid signature -67062 0xFFFFFFFFFFFEFA0A for kext AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext

In your output you are only seeing FakeSMC.kext which means that the modifications you made to the AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext were not saved because it still has a valid signature.

I have checked, changes was saved. I tried to remove AppleGraphicsDeviceControl.kext and add it later by KextBeast. But I think I made wrong thing :) How can I fix this problem?

Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

Intel i7 4790k
ASUS Sabertooth Mark 1 Z97
MSI GeForce GTX 970 OC

So I just setup a new system and was able to get the installer for El Capitan 10.11 directly from the USB. It booted just fine.

I then went ahead and installed the Nvidia Drivers for my MSI GeForce GTX 970 OC with drivers:346.03.02f02 installed onto the Hackintosh. Upon reboot and loading into Verbose, the system will show Sound assertion (slowly) and then gives me the issue of:

**** [IOBluetoothFamily][SearchForTransportEventTimeOutHandler] -- Missing Bluetooth Controller Transport!

It just hangs from here.

Currently using MacPro3,1 or iMac14,2 with: nvda_drv=1 GraphicsEnabler=yes

Any help would be appreciated.
