Thanks for the guide
Success on a X99 Asus Sabertooth, i7 6800k, 16GB 3000MHz RAM, EVGA GTX 1050, High Sierra 10.13 Supplemental Update, Nvidia Web Drivers.
Great Guide!! Thx!
Nice to hear that
So how did you solve the web driver and black screen issue? Which approach did work in your case?
I used my old ATI HD6870 to boot and clean install 10.13, installed Nvidia Webdrivers, Ran AGDPfix.app, installed Lilu and NividiaGraphicsFixup in Clover other folder, used KextBeast to install NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext to L/E, Ran Kext Utility to fix permissions. Rebooted and verified working with GTX 1050. Then ran High Sierra Supplemental Update, rebooted to osInstall and let it finish. Pulled out GTX 1050 and again booted with ATI HD6870. Upon reboot Nvidia prompted to update web drivers, ran the update and ran Kext Utility before reboot. Swapped video cards, fired it up, and boom, good to go!
Edit: I can only boot with 1 monitor plugged in, otherwise black screen. Once it's booted I can plug in the second monitor, but it says 24 bit color, don't know if that's a issue... I'll be looking into this if you have any suggestions?
I have tried this many, many times now without success.. I have followed your guide several times without luck.
X99A SLI Krait Edition
Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti
I've done everything through D.1 as expected for Haswell-E. I go to install Mac OS and get the 18 minutes remaining, after about a minute it reboots - but instead of it coming back to "41 minutes remaining" as you said in your guide, it tells me "17 minutes remaining" and it completes the installation. Then it reboots...
After rebooting and I try to boot MacOS from the drive all I get is a black screen and it will reboot after some time. !!
Please note too: I am prepping the USB drive and SSD drive from a MacBook Pro.
What I've done differently than the guide so far:
I added NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext to /kexts/other on both USB and SSD...
(I didn't check "NividaWeb" in system parameters,.. should I)?
Things I cannot do the guide tells me to do:
With the Clover EFI Bootloader I cannot:
- Select Install RC scripts on target volume (ONLY on SSD; I can on the USB drive)
- Select Install Clover Preference Pane (for neither the USB or SSD drive).
Please, any help/advice/guidance would be appreciated. I'm down $200 and many hours trying to solve this and didn't want to ask for help. Thank you.
I would try
Do you have a older ATI graphics card by any chance? You will have much better luck with the install!
I use X99_Injector USB 3.kext with Clover USBInject, Add ClockID, FixOwenership.
By the way everything works fine except one problem. When I power on my hack first time in the morning, it doesn't reboot. Black screen, no BIOS enter screen too. Only black screen. Then i reset it then backs to normal. Boots fine. Any idea?
Thanks in advance
I did the Supplemental Update without copying the apsf.efi (I forgot) but nevertheless its running fine!
Asus X-99 Aii / i7-6850K / GTX 1080 (No Driver Yet installed) / SMBIOS 6.1
Should I perform it now after wards?
Can I swap the card out later after it's installed? I don't have a card but could buy one, I've spent $200 so far but don't want to go much more in.
Thank you for the advice. Why is the Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti such a hard card to get working?
