Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

So I tried this new line:
nvda_drv=1 GraphicsEnabler=no

and it has the same error.

I do notice that it now shows the NVDAStartup.

Not sure if using Clover makes any difference.

It does make a difference because GraphicsEnabler is not a Clover boot argument. Make sure you have Inject/Nvidia/False and you can remove the GraphicsEnabler flag all together.

Sorry, call me stupid but I don't know what you mean by Inject/Nvidia/False. Could you elaborate?

Actually an update.

I had to reinstall the OS in order to get it to boot. From there, I ran the 10.11.1 update via the Mac App Store and was able to successfully boot in.

I then installed the latest Nvidia Update, WebDriver-346.03.03f01.pkg

From there, I had Clover Configurator boot with nvda_drv=1 as the only setting/option enabled.

Boom!

Now on to testing for stability and what not. So far, so good!

Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

Hi,
I have an ASUS 610 GT video card, and i get a black screen in the end of the boot process.
Right now I can only move past it with nv_disable=1
I put iMac 14.1 as my system and I'm using the latest web driver on El capitan 10.11.1 (WebDriver-346.03.03f02)
Any idea how to solve it?

I have reinstalled El Capitan and edited AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext at once. After setup clover and install web drivers. Also run commands

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
sudo kextcache -system-caches

There is no effect. Video card is not detected and acceleration is off.

Does anyone have an idea?

I'd start a thread about it. I haven't been able to get my hack with the GT 610 in it to even boot El Capitan at all because of a USB related KP. Also haven't tried very hard yet.

Please post your full config file that you are trying to boot with that is unsuccessful.
