    Solution 4 partially worked for me, I'm having a weird BIOS issue...

    Running a Z170 Gigabyte ITX, i7-6700K, and GTX 1060, Sierra 10.12.4

    The monitors display perfectly unless I have the BIOS set to initially display through PCIe slot 1. When I change that setting to IGFX though, the displays work perfectly.

    So I currently have the issue where if I want the system to work, I have to initially boot through IGFX, which means I'm booting up blind. I'm okay working around it for now, but I would prefer to have my BIOS set to output to the PCIe slot so I'm not booting up blindly.

    To clarify, the motherboard display isn't plugged in. Both monitors are plugged in to the 1060.

    I have my config.plist attached, my current fix I'm using is the Lilu.kext and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext

    I tried to install Nvdia web drivers but didn't work giving the error " this installer is not for your build" But couldn't find web drivers for this build, that's strange as I downloaded 10.11.6 from Apple Store yesterday. Tried all for 11.6 from WebDriver-346.03.15f03 to f08 (should I give the 09 a try?). Actual build is:

    System Version: OS X 10.11.6 (15G1010)
    Kernel Version: Darwin 15.6.0
    Boot Volume: SystemX

    Thanks to https://www.tonymacx86.com/posts/1590656/ I finally was able to install web drivers, but now it doesn't work!!
    Followed the guide on Problem #6 of original post, installed new Clover with both option, but still no way to select web drivers.
    In the Nvidia Control Panel at slot #1 my GTX 970 is not recognized.

    The system info shows only 8 mb vram so I'm back to the glitches before fixing HD530 that now works perfectly including Cinema Display 23" recognizance.

    What next to solve the problem?Please let me know!

    Display:

    It looks like Apple has pushed a new release of 10.11.6 which happens every time there is a security update. You will have to wait until there is a driver available or you can try modifying the NVDAStartupWeb.kext with your build number.

    Hi Jim and thanks for your suggestion, but which version should I edit, the latest for 11.6 or the old beta that I finally installed but partially working ( glitches, 8MB instead of 4000, ....) as in my previous post?

    If you are going to edit the driver then you should use the most recent version. The beta driver should work fine though so it sounds like you are having issues enabling the driver instead of having issues with the driver itself.

    You right, I finally succeeded following his guide https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/gigabyte-z170x-ultra-gaming-skylake-build-el-capitan.215351/

    Succeeded in terms of driver showing the right card, right vram and no glitches. Just a slow start up compared with the HD530 one. This evening I'll do some real world test to see how well is recognized...
    And trying to solve shutdown/sleep issues... but I'm happy by now! Txs![/QUOTE]

    UPDATE: Real world test went ok, good, Nvidia gtx works nicely
