Hello,
I recently reinstalled MacOS High Sierra on my Hackintosh. I have not changed any BIOS settings, and have retained the same Clover EFI that worked before the reinstall. However, I cannot seem to get past this, no matter what guide I follow. After I install the NVIDIA Web Drivers, I boot to a black screen after the Apple Logo. I can access the system by booting with the "nv_disable=1" boot flag, but without the drivers working. Any advice?
Thanks!

Maybe posting in the correct forum will help.

Does not require Buying Advice - Moved to High Sierra Desktop Support.
Sorry. Thats kinda weird. I could've sworn I posted in the "Graphics" category of "Post Installation." Thanks.

I was able to get them working by reinstalling and not updating. My OS build version is 17G65 and the appropriate Web Drivers work perfectly with it. I'll update if I learn more.

OK. I updated to build 17G4015 by installing the Security Update, and then updated the Web Drivers. It is working fine now. I hope this helps other people.

Never mind. A few reboots later and I have the same problem. Trying something else.

it seems to go back to a black screen after a few reboots.
