Zip and attach your EFI folder.
here it is :

config working.plist is the plist which works properly with no graphic support
then there were some things that people told me to do which i did in the plist in the efi.zip and then my monitor shuts off

The config inside the EFI folder you supplied is using iMac17,1. You have lilu.kext present but do not have the nvidiagraphicsfixup.kext. That should fix your issue with the monitor shutting off while using iMac17,1. Also you have a lot of stuff you probably don't need in the drivers64UEFI folder.

Also stuck with not being able to get the Nvidia drivers to stick. Verified that InjectIntel is false and NvidiaWeb is true in config.plist on EFI. NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext installed. System type set to MacPro 5,1. Boots reliably but only with OS X drivers which sort of misses the point :)

I notice that when I run System Report and look at PCI, I get the "This computer doesn't contain..." message. Also, when I open the Nvidia prefs, under the ECC tab there are no devices found in any slot. Yes, it's in slot 1 and works correctly under Win10 on the same system.

Ideas?

Hi, Thanks a lot for the guide. I was able to fix the black screen issues. However, I just found out that I cannot boot into the recovery partition now. I am wondering if this issue is caused by the Pascal card I have ( 1070).

You will need to put nv_disable=1 when booting into the recovery partition.

Thank you for the reply, I just tried that and unfortunately it does not work. I have no clue where to start fixing this issue. I tried searching some posts on this forum but no luck. Could you please suggest some other method please?

Same Graphics Card on a Z270 Prime A
Asus board here,

Also getting No Device Found in the ECC tab of the NVIDIA Driver Manager.
Just installed the very latest 378.05.05.25f01 that came out a few hours ago, still the same issue...
Will keep a close eye on replies!

Cheers

Hello!, someone has successfully been able to use a GTX 970m with Sierra?
