you need to rebuild kernel cache as in the instructions for problem #4 and then not boot with -f. Using the -f flag ignores kernel cache.

Solving NVIDIA driver install problems

I am having an issue with my Nvidia 970 running on my hackintosh.

I can get the system to boot perfectly off the internal GFX but when I try to run off the 970 the machine crashes at the log-in screen. I can boot into Windows fine and run the card without issue.

I am running 10.10.3, build (14D136)
Nvidia driver 346.01.02f03
Mac Pro 3,1

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Sounds like the drivers aren't loading. Are you using the boot flag nvda_drv=1?

I think you tried to help me out in another thread.

I thought I had set the boot flags correctly. Here is the contents of my org.chameleon.boot.plist file:

By the way you have a line with <key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>No</string> "No" on top, so you can just simply change it to "Yes"
