Hi, I've read all posts I could, and tried everything, but can't make my graphics to work. It doesn't let me choose my Nvidia graphics, and get stucked in MacOS Graphic Driver, I know it has to do with NVRAM. I've disabled inject Nvidia, I've tried solution number 6, I've tried lilu.kext and Whatevergreen.kext, and AptioMemoryfixer. NvidiaWeb is True and I'm in iMac 18,2 definition. I don't know what else to try. Could you help me, please. I'm leaving the config.plist.

By the way, I've already installed High Sierra 10.13.6, and I'm just missing my graphics to work.

My specs.
- MOBO Z370P D3
- Core i5 8400
- Gigabyte GTX 1050

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to add Emulated NVRAM from the latest version of MultiBeast 10.4.0. Go to the Bootloader tab - you should have Clover UEFI Boot Mode + Emulated NVRAM:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/multibeast-10-4-0-high-sierra.401/

You can find all this information in the release notes:
http://www.multibeast.com/

I've done that again, and still Got stuck in the login screen. It boots normally, i get to see my login screen, but it starts to flash, and i can't type my password nor move the pointer of the mouse. The only way i can enter is by injecting nvidia in clover boot options, but i need my graphics to install correctly. Any ideas?

Hi, I've this problem I'm on 10.11.3 (15D21), graphic card is not active, Nvidia Driver Manager with web driver 346.03.05f02 (same problem with 05f02) is installed but it says "(not compatible) if I check it says no Update available, all graphics drivers options are in grey, I tried some solutions you describe, but nothing works, which #5 "sudo nano /Library/Extensions/NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist"
it doesn't work, I can't find "NVDARequiredOS" there's nothing.
Someone has any solution to fix it ?
Do U believe if updating in 10.11.6 can remove the problem, but update with Apple Store doesn't work either.

I know it's starting to become an old version of OS X, but I've no choice to continue using vintage music softwares
thanks

I'm having the same problem, login screen - flash - login screen - flash....
MObo: Z370XP SLI, Gigabyte GTX Winforce 1060 6GB, i7 8700. MacOS 10.13.6
I'm probing all: OsAptioFix64;OsAptioFix264; OsAptioFix364; OsAptioFix64&OsAptioFix264...
And also with lilu y watevergreen.
But nothing: either login screen-flash; or without recognice graphic card.

Some idea?
Many thanks

I do a new installation. I install 10.13.6, the nvidia drivers but without NVRAM. No problem with startup, but the system dont recognice the graphic card.
After install NVRAM.
Here the problem again!! - flash in login screen.

I read:

and i put lilu and watervergreen in /other folder instead of L/E/ but... the same.

Perhaps the graphic card are bad?

I probe a new thing:
I eliminate the NVRAM/EmuVariableUefi with an utility (Clover Emulated NVRAM Uninstaller.pkg).

Restart and in about this mac, the system dot recognice the graphic card.

Change OSAptioFix-2 for OsAptioFix-3 (this one support NVRAM native).
Restart and the same problem that when i use EmuVariableUEfi....flash in login screen.

Now i'll write in terminal sudo nvram -c; sudo nvram nvda_drv=1

Same problem: login glitch (login black screen, login black screen, login black screen). Have read a lot, others are having the same trouble with the GTX 1060.

Trying with this new build:

G-Force GTX 1060 6GB
ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-G GAMING
Intel Core i5-8400

1. I cloned my last working hackintosh drive 10.13.6,
2. installed the ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-G build EFI.
3. Reinstalled the Nvidia Web Drivers 387.10.10.10.40.105
4. Tried several fixes from this thread and others, from disabling SIP to NVRAM fixes. Nothing changes.

Everything else works without nvda_drv=1 but haven't been able to activate the NVIDIA drivers without breaking the login.
