Freeze on start with NVidia Web Driver

Hi, my Hackintosh is successfully installed but if I use the NVidia Web Driver, Sierra start but when I arrived on the login screen, I can't do anything, no cursor, no keyboard, nothing.

If I start with nv_disable=1, I can  use correctly the computer.

 

Graphic Card: Nvidia Geforce 410m

 

Sorry if my english is bad, it's not my language.

 

Cordially

Do you have Nvidia Injection set to True in the config.plist file?
If so, then you may want to reinstall the Nvidia Web Drivers and make sure you boot into the system with the following bootflags until you enable the Web Drivers:

-v GraphicsEnabler=No nv_disable=1

Since you are forced to reboot after installing the Nvidia default drivers, you'll have to put these bootflags in again so you can enable the web drivers from the control panel

Once you've enabled the web drivers and are rebooting, you can remove the bootflags and hopefully you'll get a working display. (As long as you didn't set the BIOS to IGPU only and as long as your monitor and connectors are functioning)

Are you still able to log in or does your system lock up at the login screen?

That OEM GPU is hopeless unfortunately, I have had success with the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti and my hackintosh installation without any performance problems. (It can run games, do 4K video editing in Final Cut Pro even though it can't export H.264 past 1080p unfortunately (that's just software limitations from Apple))

The good news is that you can pick up the same GPU for less than $100 but that's just my recommendation.

Hi Kim,

The system is locked up/hanged completely :( so it is not some USB(mouse, KBD) issue, also i'm using UEFI bootloader; The craziness is that im not able to find anything in the logs but i assume it is the video driver as before installing the Web one, only one of the monitors is working w poor performance, while whenever the Web driver is installed, both of the monitors are displaying the blury wallpaper/login screen but it is complete stuck at that moment

Meanwhile w maverick the video card was working fine, so i think there is a way to make it works but not an expert :( so any suggestions are welcome

If the Nvidia web drivers for Sierra aren't working for you, then you may want to consider downgrading to El Capitan.

Are you wanting to install OS X Sierra to get the latest release for a particular app (such as the latest version of Xcode) or are you just wanting a functioning hackintosh in general?

    • Hello everyone,  I'm trying to install High Sierra (with AMD support) on my AMD 4500m Lenovo G505s laptop. When booting from Clover in EFI with i get some really fast screen log then the pc reboots. Now, i know there isn't a way you could help me without some info/logs, unless i'm missing a major malfunction known on these kind of laptops, so, do you know a way i could prevent it from rebooting in order to at least understand what is causing this problem? Do you think even trying to put OSX on this laptop is worth it? Thank you.
    • Hello, i am trying to install High Sierra on my ASUS X75VB but i am getting multiple errors with the ACPI.
      I believe it is CPU related?

      Mainboard: HM76 (X75VB SOCKET 0)
      CPU: Intel Core i5 3320m (Not the original CPU of this laptop!)
      GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000 & NVIDIA 2GB Geforce 740M
      RAM: DDR3 8GB
      Storage: 120GB SSD (SATA-2)

      I have used the DSDT.aml & SSDT.aml from the following resource:
       https://github.com/xxx10101xxx/ThinkPad-X230-macOS/tree/master/i5-3320M

      My config.plst can be found here:
      https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lK7ixY8fAvtIJv8gY6Gf-RQvKJBVcFLm

      Thanks in advance!

    • I have Yosemite Zone working on Virtualbox fine.  After downloading High Sierra Zone there is only a dmg and no ISO.  I tried converting the dmg with hdiutil but it goes to 8GB and I get "no bootable media" in Virtualbox.  Has anyone been able to do this yet?
