    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    I ran the installer again, and I actually managed to avoid the gIOLockState 3 error if I boot from internal graphics, however then I end in a reboot cycle, with the text scrolling too fast to properly see what is even going on. https://www.dropbox.com/s/6rdqw6jracgu1yd/IMG_5946.mov?dl=0

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    Does anyone know how to diagnose/why VESA mode fails? "nv_disable=1" fails to change anything to me, leaving me with a bricked machine.

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    I booted up in single user mode, and found that in Library/Extensions i had a NvidiaGraphicsFixup kext, which in now deleted, but I am still stuck at gIOScreenLockState for any configuration but single user mode.

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    the problem then seems to be that nv_disable=1 fails to actually disable non-accelerated graphics? Is there any other way to force VESA mode? I checked again, both Lilu and whatevergreen are in the kext folder on the EFI drive.

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    All these booting attempts from my USB stick were made with nv_disable=1 and I am getting the gIOLockState 3 errors. I also tried booting with -x, to the same result. Booting with -s insofar works as I do get access to a command line interface, but no graphics whatsoever

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    I can boot using the stick or the recovery partition, but using the EFI directly from USB should be the same as copying it over? I trying booting using the UniBeast EFI already directly from the USB stick, and it gives me the same spam of [IGPU] Hash data from ME never returned, status = 1...

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    I removed the GPU, and tried booting using internal graphics. This results in a spam of [IGPU] Hash data from ME never returned, status = 1, doing retry # The only suggestion for this was loading it using -disablegfxfirmware, leaving me again at gIOLockState 3 I also tried booting using -x...

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    Of course right now I can't boot in any graphical environment. Can this be done from single user mode, or can I somehow get the internal graphics to work?

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    Thank you very much for your advice, but with your changes I am still ending up at gIOLockState 3, trying it both with and without nv_disable=1 Is there some way to remove/deactivate the webdrivers, I did boot the machine without them when I set it up the first time?

    How can I configure the graphics properly? This is the printout of verbose mode with nv_disable=1

    Reinstalling High Sierra stuck on apple logo.

    My High Sierra installation broke, so I used the recovery partition to reinstall High Sierra. After the installation, my disk booted up once, doing some more installation, but now I can't boot. I had to add InjectNVIDIA, but that only brings me to the apple logo, with no more printout from...
