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.

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?

I've same nvidia graphic card that is 410m and facing same issue , stuck at login or some time just few seconds after login. So its nvidia web driver issue mostly because i tried mac os sierra 10.12.4 vanilla flavor and web driver for same, no stuck, perfectly working graphic but lots of other issues. I just hope if we can use Niresh Distro with nvidia graphic. 

 

So my finding is latest version of nvidia web driver is supported on 10.12.4 so its something different issue, not the compatibility issues. May be Niresh can help or provide support for nvidia driver.

Hey Kim,

I dont need Sierra for a particular app... it was time to move from Mavericks :) which is pretty good OS but quite old and some apps are not supported any more

@Niresh Maybe Niresh will be able to give us a hint? :) and it will be very appreciated 

Meanwhile do u know any good guide for El Capitan...vanilla one i guess?

The method I used to install Yosemite on my PC was using TransMac to write the DMG file of Niresh Zone Yosemite to my 8 GB flash drive.

If you want to go with the appstore version of El Capitan, then you'll need to have access to a Mac or at least have El Capitan running in a virtual machine like I did using the DevHackers El Capitan ISO on VirtualBox: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CshWGnOMwcc

From there you can download the appstore version of El Capitan (10.11.6) and get your USB ready using disk utility and write the contents of the appstore version of El Capitan to your flashdrive with Unibeast which will also include the Clover bootloader if my memory serves me correctly.

It may be a bit easier to use Niresh Zone El Capitan if you're coming from Windows. I don't know the process for those on Linux but I suppose the ISO version would suffice in that circumstance alongside the dd command in terminal. (If you're using TransMac on Windows, you'll want to get the DMG version. If you're using VirtualBox or Linux, you'll want to get the ISO version.)

Hey Kim,

I managed to complete install El Capitan (vanilla one) with all devices working ok. The nvidia was a struggle again but i managed to make it works (drivers from mavericks + cuda + web driver + nvda_drv=1 (bootflag))

I'm also dual monitoring, so during boot i'm using only the DVI one and once all is loaded/booted I'm attaching the VGA and enable it :) ..i didn't manage to find any other way to start both monitors without hanging/black screens/reboots

So it is working great now & many thanks as well as to @Niresh for the good debugging boot how-to page

Hello Guys!

First of all thanks a lot for providing such good support and help.I am fairly new to Hackintosh. I have installed macOS Sierra on my system all things working fine but when I installed Nvidia web driver on login screen, I am not able to access any controls (keyboard and mouse all stuck). I tried few method discussed in this thread but no luck.

My system configuration is :

Processor: i3-4150 @ 3.50GHz

Ram: 8GB

Graphics: nVidia Geforce GT 610

Motherboard: Gigabyte H81 Gaming 3

Can anyone guide me to right direction to fix this problem?

 

Thanks,

AJ

Hello Everyone!

This is the latest information from my side. To fix the freeze problem on login screen when using Nvidia web drivers I update the macOS 10.12.3 to 10.12.5 (using App Store updates) and after I reboot my system, system was saying graphics drivers are not compatible and I uninstall those and after reboot system pickups the Nvidia driver that comes with macOS (Official) and my system seems to working fine now but after 10-15 mins my system goes to hang state and mouse cursor icon changed to double arrow sign.

Any suggestion how to fix this problem? any pointers are greatly appreciated ? do I need to remove any macOS system file or kext file to fix this problem?

 

Thanks,

Aj

Oh my god !!! Really ?! I'm becoming crazy trying to achieve that: I have also a gt 705 that worked ok in Yosemite, but once I managed to upgrade to El Capitan v10.11.4, I cannot make the nvidia work properly (only ugly vesa mode). Believe me, I have wasted lots of hours.

I have tried to apply your steps, but the 1st problem is that I cannot install drivers from mavericks (I tried to download them from the web, but osx tells me that it cannot install the package on this version (el capitan)).

 

I've tried to edit the package as explained here:

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solving-nvidia-driver-install-loading-problems.161256/

with "flat package editor", but when try to relaunch the pkg file "nvidia WebDriver for mavericks-334.01.03f08.pkg", a javascript error throws.

Please, you will be very very kind if you can explain me the detailed steps to make gt 705 work on el capitan

final doubts:

- when you say "drivers from mavericks" you mean drivers from nvidia web for mavericks version of osx ?

- when you say "web driver", are you talking about telling from osx (not from clover) to use the web driver instead of the default one after the mavericks package is installed ?

- Is there any chance to extract the yosemite driver that is working correctly (I used the yosemite version downloadable from https://www.hackintoshzone.com/files/file/810-niresh-yosemite/) , and install it in some way (maybe kextbeast?!)  from El Capitan, or from Sierra ?

All the web drivers I've tested before from nvidia for El Capitan 10.11.4 failed (black screen / clock spinning alternating with mouse pointer... )... what to do ?

I knew that installing hackintosh could be hard, but really, this is driving me maaaaaad !

I want Sierra in fact, because I want to learn the latest version of swift language, but with that nvidia bullshit graphics card... oh my gooood.

I know I can buy a new card, but not now...

Thanks in advance. I keep anxiously waiting for your answers :D !!!

Hi mate,

After some tests i managed also to start it without the old driver + cuda +...etc but a bit more easy way:

So 1st make sure that you dont have two screens connected while booting the installed OS but connect both monitors during the installation!!! -> that's the issue for me :) -> but once you've managed to boot you can connect your 2nd monitor and enable it. 

Unfortunately i have my new nvidia 1060 which can run only in Sierra, so i dont have the el cap any more but here are the steps which i did (i hope my memory is good) 

1. Install El capitan (two screens connected)

2. Boot El cap with nv_disable=1; (one screen should be used, use the DVI)

3. Install the web driver, restart (nv_disable=1 shoud be enabled) and once the system is up/running, remove the nv_disable=1, start the nvidia pref pane and choose the web and restart

If i remember correctly you wont need the any boot args as it will still try to use the default OS X driver but it will have some more libs.

 

Here is my config.plist file as well:

<key>RtVariables</key>

<dict>

<key>CsrActiveConfig</key>

<string>0x3</string>

<key>BooterConfig</key>

<string>0x28</string>

</dict>

Let me know if u manage to make it :)

P.S.

Web driver-> Nvidia web driver pane in OSX (SystemPref)

Maverick driver-> kext file not WebDriver but dont go this way as u will end up having some other issues :(

Hello,

 

Thank you for your detailed answer.

 

Unfortunately I still have gt 705, and the web drivers do not work for this gpu.

So I think I'd have to follow the way you managed to make it with el capitan with gt 705.

I know this is not the best way to do, but as long as I don't have a new gpu I have to proceed like that.

 

So, how can I get the kext file from maverick (please give me detailed instructions, I'm a noob) ?

You managed to make it work with El Capitan. How ? with clover ? how to put it with clover once I get the file ? Would it work with El Capitan ?

Thanks again

Hey mate,

This is what i said -> dont go w the NVDAGF100Hal.kext (maverick kext for nvidia as you will end up having some other issues and you will have to further debug it), therefore just install the nvidia web one (installing doesnt mean to use it! ok? :) ). It will install additional libs and afterwards the default OS X driver will be fine to go. And yes, i do use clover -> UEFI (dont go w legacy, i dont think it will works). 

The thing is to ask the nvidia web driver to use the Web Driver but it will fail and it will switch back to original OS X one (by asking i dont mean putting the boot args, but to click on the web driver in the nvidia system pref pane)
Maybe mine explanation is quite bad (sorry for my english) but try this link https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/os-x-default-graphics-driver-overriding-nvidia-web-driver.177492/ and check the response frmo FireclawX #9. He explained the same method which i'm trying to explain. It is not very logical but it is working.  Just quoting "Ocassionally if I boot with nv_disable and then use the nvidia pref pane to change it to nvidia web drivers instead of OSX drivers, I can click the icon to reboot and get in without using the nv_disable flag, however this does not always work.
Any idea what might be going on?"

Good luck :)

P.S. R u using 2 screens or just one? If it is one, then it should work out very easy. It is very important to have one screen connected while booting the OS and have both of them connected during the installation of the OSX itself.
