    I have problem 6, where I can activate the NVidia web drivers in the system preference pane, but it reverts back to the default drivers after a restart. Therefore, the GPU has 7 MB of VRAM ...

    Thing is that I updated Clover to v2.4k_r4200 after the MultiBeast installs and NVRAM emulation is activated by default. I can also see a nvram.plist in EFI/, so I assume that it is working. In the BIOS of my Gigabyte H270N-Wifi I have set the initial display to PEG1 (instead of the iGPU) and it doesn't matter if I set the iGPU to "disable" or "auto". Using MultiBeast I did install Lilu and IntelGraphicsFixup for the HD630 before, could that be the reason? Should I use NvidiaGraphicsFixup?

    In Clover Configurator I have activated the (x) NVidiaWeb option and nvda_drv=X was never activated, so that can't be it. I also hand-checked the config.plist, nvda_drv is not in there.

    Did the procedure for 10.12.6 on a Kaby Lake board with a Gigabyte GTX 1070 change?

    EDIT: Solved with NvidiaGraphicsFixup. I also did some other things like deleting the GPU device id in Clover Config, but that didn't really change anything.

    Nope, can't figure it out. Could it be that I'm using two DVI monitors plugged in with Display Port adapters? Would that mess anything up? Unfortunately I do not have any Display Port monitors to test.

    YAAAAAAHHHH!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

    Re-Installed a GTX970 back on my Hack (my 6870 card is failing and couldn't drive 3 monitors anymore), and for several days now I couldn't make this GTX970 to work. I know it worked previously on an older OSX version.

    Did upgraded Clover, run the RC scripts, and correct settings in Clover configurator and read several pages of troubleshooting and Googling, but nothing I tried works. I was ready to post this GTX970 on eBay today! (took pictures, etc).

    And as last resort, checked out tonymac again and saw this post... Run Multibeast, and this fixed my problem!

    Full acceleration, and properly recognized by About this Mac!

    My system:
    4790K-i7
    Z87MX-D3H
    32GB RAM
    OSX 10.12.5 (14,2)

    Above is my system hardware... Hopefully, this post will also help others.

    There is a very good chance the issue is your adapter.

    DVI to HDMI is digital which is fully supported by macOS.
