Hi all, since I installed high sierra and the web driver I've had trouble starting my mac pro a couple of times, usually after a longer period being off, during the night for example. Once I press the power button, I hear the chime and then nothing. Has anyone experiences this or something similar?

Thanks

Do you have any other GPU to test? In your situation, it's very hard to narrow down that's GPU related.

e.g. Quite a few Mac users realise their Mac boot very slow after HS upgrade. And further found out it's TRIM related. Once they switch off TRIM, everything back to normal.

If you have a SSD and TRIM causing issue during boot. You may not able to see it, and assume it's 980 or web driver related.

Thanks for you reply, I have the old GT 120 but I think the culprit is an external drive converted to APFS.

Apparently APFS can be very slow on mechanical HDs, yeah.

No issues on GTX Titan X, but the bootup process is a bit slower than on Sierra.
