    Ive been trying for days to get my 1050ti to work. its the only part of my system that won't budge. i've tried all the methods verbatim as per the many posts. i'm constantly greeted with a black screen. I thought i may have more luck if i could actually manage to update niresh's distro to the latest update but that won't work either, i download the combo update and unpack it only to install the update i need, it installs then starts to reset but it looks like the hackintosh system cuts it off short of completing, upon reboot there is no 'install update' says its updating then its still at 10.3. what am i doing wrong? i've tried the nvida webdriver auto updater as well but it doesn't really do anything other than download the drivers

    might be worth mentioning that niresh's installer pretty much ALWAYS fails to install for me. Although 10.10 is installed there seems to be things like the bootloader and god knows what else missing. i can boot into my installation with the USB though

    Hello, I've been trying to install 10.10 on this laptop for 3 days now. I can get it to install but am plagued with issues after the install. I will try and list all my laptop component that i can recall to help chipset HM77 intel i7 3537U Intel 4000HD Nvidia 730M changed wifi card to BCM supported card (works under 5,2 smbios) 1. When i install i need a smbios version of 5,2 to fix my wifi but the installer doesn't give me that option. so when i install my USB or Wifi doesn't work meaning i can't download the fixes off the internet. i have other laptops but as i mentioned the USB doesn't mount USB disks but will work if i plug a mouse of keyboard into them 2. when i install the voodoops2 kexts via the installer and then try and boot with just -v the ps2 kexts throw a i have to uninstall these kexts and install newer ones as i recall reading i do. 3. What settings do i use to get my graphics working properly? are there boot flags i can use so i don't have to keep running the installer in safe mode? The flags i use are below as follows kext-dev-mode=1 -v npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No dart=0 USBBusFix=Yes (if i don't use this i get failed to enumerate errors) Any guidance would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance
