It's a real mac. I know... shoot me!
No one needs to shoot anyone. Suggest that the MacRumours Forum is better suited to your hardware and requirements:

Good luck , I am sure that you can figure it out or get an answer fro the wider Mac community.

thanks for the kind words.. problem solved (answer: did you plug it in?? --- turn off SIP before installing the drivers... everything is working great now!).

So i just successfully installed High Sierra 10.13.6 on my Z600 using this guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-hp-z600-high-sierra-installation-guide.248026/

Everything seems to have gone great with the installation, except I am having trouble getting the Nvidia Web drivers working with my 1060. I install them fine, but when i restart the computer to enable them, it switches back to native macOS graphics drivers every time. I would think the solution would be number 6 on this post, but tried it to no avail. The z600 uses a legacy bios. I have attached my plist.config. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Edit: Please disregard i figured it out. Just needed to delete nv disable=1 and add <key>NvidiaWeb</key> <true/> to my config.plist.

Hi.
I installed today hackintosh 10.13.6 on Z370 HD3 with i5 8400 and GTX 1080 and everything is working except the video driver.
I installed the latest driver on my hackintosh but it refuses to work.
Can you please help me figure out what the problem is?

I used to have that GPU, in Sierra and it worked well for me using NVIDIA Drivers and, every time there was a OSX update, NVidia Drivers updated automatically and my computer worked normally, however, I only used final cut and photo shop and, for what I do, they seemed to work well.

I don't know if this helps you, there is a very specific driver at NVIDIAs website for a very specific OSX version, are U using such specific driver?

Cheers!

Hey everyone. I am doing a fresh High Sierra install, on 10.13.6 (17G8037). I have successfully installed the Nvidia driver 387.10.10.10.40.131 and it's the latest update available. Also, the web driver is stays selected at boot.

And yet...it's not actually using the graphics card. By all accounts it looks like it's working, but it isn't actually.

I am attaching screenshots of the Nvidia sys pref settings, along with my config.plist file.

I'm hoping someone can help me with this issue I'm having. Thank you!
