    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:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">

    <key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>GenerateCStates</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>GeneratePStates</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>Graphics Mode</key>

    <key>HDAEnabler</key>
    <string>Yes</string>
    <key>HDEFLayoutID</key>

    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"
