Please note I did not have to meddle with nvda_drv=1 since my GTX 760 is supported out of the box in OSX. And with the 14,2 SMBIOS first and second stage boot logos are 100% OK.
First, thank you for your guide, it made the process incredibly simple! I ran into only 2 problems. The first was the cmos needed to be reset frequently bc I was running an old bios version. I only mention it in case someone else runs into the same problem I did, its an easy fix by updating the bios. The second is a vid card issue described below. Other than that your guide made the process extremely easy. Also thank you for attaching those files! It made a big difference.
I have a very similar setup. Same motherboard, 6700k processor, and a GTX770. The only change I made was I switched the SMBIOS to iMac16,2 because it was compatible with Skylake.
Everything works except the video card. It sounds like it repeatedly keeps overheating because after the logon screen comes up, there is a loop of 2 seconds of silence followed by both fans kicking on high for about 3 seconds followed by 2 seconds of silence. The only thing that makes it stop is shutting down. I tried the nvidia web drivers but it won't load them and always shows the OSX defaults were loaded instead. I also set the nvda_drv=1 option, but it didn't make a difference. It won't display anything from the monitor plugged into the video card, it only displays output from the motherboard connected display. Any ideas on what I should try next?
