Is it unusual that it requires 10.11.2 to install? So you have to update to 10.11.2, hope you get enough video via the OSX drivers to install the Nvidia driver and then reboot from there?
In this case I know this is possible because I forgot about drivers and updated already. Video worked enough to do stuff, but it was broken to the point where I went back to 10.11.1. But in the future this could be a problem.
This is normal and installation will always work this way. Maxwell cards (GTX 970, 980, 980 Ti, and Titan X). MUST have drivers so you should always wait the 1-2 days for a new Nvidia driver before installing major OSX updates.
Hi ok last time i did this i ended up having to put a another card in load the drivers then put my 980ti back in
i,m on os 10.11.1 how do i update to 10.11.2 with out have to switch the card in and out again ...yes it is a mac video 980ti
Ugh this is what I was worried about. I should have kept my GT120.
Not sure about the ti, but with the 980 this time I just updated to 10.11.2. The video was broken, but not broken enough that I couldn't log in and update the Nvidia drivers. Then rebooted and it was fine.
Just update to 10.11.2. When you boot everything will be sluggish since there's no driver, but your system will be usable enough that you can install the new driver and reboot.
