Well that was simple... I feel a bit dumb now! Thanks P1LGRIM! :)
Out of curiosity, any clue why the port I used before is no longer working?
None, but it actually may do if you switch back now - Go figure.

Hi.
I am tearing my hair out as I cannot get my nvidia gtx 750 to work on my asrock h77m itx with 10.2.6

I had to rebuild my machine as the old hard drive fried.

I can boot to OS X using onboard graphics

I have installed the correct drivers and updated the config.plist with ncidiawebdrivers and deleting nv_drv flag

No luck.

I then installed Lilu.kext and nvidiagrqphicsfixup.kext

No luck

I then installed EmuVariableUefi-64 and rebooted.

No luck.

I installed rc scripts. No luck

I put lilu.kext and nvidiagrqphicsfixup.kext into efi/clover/kext/other and still no luck!

A screen shot of the boot error is attached.

Can anyone please advise me on things I can try?????

Thank you!

The error appears to relate to Intel graphics drivers.
Make sure that you have disabled integrated graphics in your BIOS settings.

Attach your config.plist.

I am away but I will upload my config list on Saturday first thing when I came back.

On my mobo, I have the pci e as the primary graphics driver. I cannot find a way to full disable the integrated graphics.

I fixed it based on your comments!

I did a double check on whether nv_drv was deleted from config. I noticed injectintel was set to true under graphics. I set it to false and it worked!!!!

Phew.

Maybe someone can help me out, as everything works fine with my build (with this guide)
After some upgrades.. from a i7-6850K to E5-2696 v4 the Nvidia drivers still work (HT-Disabled) with the old graphics cards.

As the Hyper-Treading be enabled in the bios (22 cores/44 threads) Nvidia driver manager don't load anymore.
But the webdriver is still enabled because acceleration still works, and CUDA detect a GPU.

Now on point I get being driven crazy when changed my 2* Titan X (Maxwell) to 2* EVGA GTX 1080Ti FTW3 :banghead:
Nice upgrade with this GPU's you would think... not ! :problem: ( It's in the buyers guide so compatible.. )

As I boot the system cant load MacOS and sometime I get a distorted screen, and clover keeps hanging on CPU configuration.
With a black screen but the system boots because I hear a sound the GPU send a signal to my monitor ( + teamviewer is online)

And sometime certainly the system boots acceleration doesn't work anymore..

The Nvidia driver manager just load on the system settings, but no GPU detected on the ECC tab + CUDA preference panel.
But the driver manager keeps hanging on the OSX Driver ( even when I delete the nvram.plist from the EFI partition )

I Have read 20 pages back on this topic for a solution, and already done many things thats required to get a working system:
  • AGDPfix 1.3 ( patch confirmed )
  • AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext -> Info.plist: Mac-F60DEB81FF30ACF6 = None
  • freqVectorsEdit.sh
  • Add manually missing frequency vectors: iMac17,1 / iMac14,1 / iMac14,2
[sysctl -n machdep.xcpm.vectors_loaded_count] keeps returning always: 0 as XCPM is enabled and returned: 1​
  • EmuVariableUefi-64 @ Clover-> drivers64UEFI = Nvram.plist is stored @ EFI
  • Clover config: NvidiaWeb = True
The solution to use the SMBIOS: iMac14,1 is also not working and possible because im using XCPM SMBIOS MacPro6,1 that is required
With a Xeon E5-2696 v4 for a correct power management for my CPU

Update 1:

For testing with a fresh install on a spare SSD the problem still exist but now I see..
On clover verbose boot I get status off: NVDAStartupWeb:Web + NVDAGP100HAL:loaded&registered ( right kext for pascal ? )
As research it's not the right kext that loaded? because pascal is NVDAGP102 but cant find it back in Extensions..

NVDA_startupweb+loaded.jpeg

By the way for the extra information I'm using 4 monitors + wacom cintiq connected with 3 displayport cables & 1 HDMI&DVI cable
And with changing cables in different ports, I get from the black screen one time a very strange clover message:

NVDA_channel-timeout1.jpeg NVDA_channel-timeout2.jpeg

And attached my clover EFI map, hopefully someone can help me out please as hard as I need the system for my work.
When especially its getting very busy at the moment with projects for my business this happens :lolno:

Update 2:

After removing the second GPU, applying the GPU SSDT, and very strange the old method for nvidia drivers: nvda_drive=1

I got a working GPU with acceleration and HT enabled in the bios with 22 Cores / 44 Threads..
But Nvidia Driver manager don't load on system settings, besides CUDA preference pane just load & detect GPU
( + in chrome some artifacts, same with my Titan X thought they where broken so depends on hyper threading on CPU

But with using the second GPU the system don't boot, so now my second GTX 1080Ti is crying in his box :O
