    Thanks - i will do so. Did you install your system with graphicscard installed? Is there any newbie-failure you can think of, that i could have overseen?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I installed El Capitan and Sierra with the graphics card installed. The only advise I can impart to you is to review my installation procedures and see if you left out a step. When I was a beginner, I printed out the guide and checked off each step as it was accomplished.

    I did this - and once again: Thanks for your incredible guide!

    I just disconnected a internal USB3-portconnector and it seems like the installer went a little step further.

    One last question plz - so i can sort the Graphicscard out - On install - did you connect your monitor to the onboard CPU-GPU or did you connect it to the discrete Graphicscard?

    THX in advance

    I was so stupid. I thought the Mainboard had updated the Firmware through the Win10-Asus-App, as it said - but it didn't. As you said Stork - letter by letter was a good idea. THX man.

    Now installer is thought - OSX and NVMe runs fine - except GTX980 Graphics Card - wich doesn't activate, or if so OSX does start with a black screen and i can't log into OSX. Maybe this is an issue with my 4k-Monitor connected through Displayport and needs two 1.2-Streams? Windows works fine @60Hz.

    These issues have been mentioned within other systems-definitions, but not 14,2. I will install again and see if i got a wrong driver. But has anyone had this problem before?

    THX again.

    I made the mistake of updating the BIOS to the latest version 3101. I lost the ability to keep the Nvidia drivers on, and my Desktop wallpaper changed to the Sierra default wallpaper. (I set it back to the wallpaper I had before, and it stuck.) But, something happen to NVRAM with this new BIOS or whatever is keeping the Nvidia drivers off.

    My BIOS settings are the same as in Post #1:
    However, before I go looking for Clover r3677 and installing the EmuVariableUefi-64 do-hicky, I want to see if anybody has had this problem with the new BIOS.

    Update: I had attempted to roll back to v2201 BIOS using the BIOS' built-in utility which didn't work. However, jrii reports success in Post #603 using the Back Panel method.

    Good news! I installed the EmuVariableUefi-64.efi in Clover > drivers64UEFI folder. Download the latest clover package and only install EmuVariableUefi-64.efi - you don't have to install all of the latest Clover. Before rebooting, change to the Nvidia drivers. All should be well after that.

    Looks like the newest ASUS BIOS' are "wreaking" our NVRAM across reboots.

    Well i got the latest Bios and thought it was this issue that i couldn't load the Webdriver, but as it turned out my Mac just posted me this massage - as seen in the pictures.
    Has anybody of you the combination of this driver, the latest Bios and this OS-Version working?

    Stork, i tried as you just said and Updated Clover, installed EmuVariableUefi-64.efi - and clicked install. Didn't do anything. - But maybe my problem lies elsewhere - i'm just too new in the business.
