Here you are!
Try deleting the codec commander kext and all those that have FakePCIID in the name, reboot and see what happens.

Hi everybody, I have here a little issue with my HP 8300 CMT / HD4000.
After upgrade to Mojave (from El Capitan) all works, but the PC boot too long. It stucks on "en1: DAD cpmlete..." and then on the "build gpuDict IGPU". This EFI works perfect with an 8300 SFF, but stucks on my CMT.
The OSX Mojave works also not so fluently on this PC. Any ideas?
Thank's a lo t for the help!

Hi guys,

I'm installing a fresh SSD with High Sierra.
I've made it `till the installation of NVIDIA web driver and then I ran into a bizarre problem.
My "About This Mac" says that my Version macOS is 10.13.6 (17G66).
It's not official.
I've Googled it and found that it uses the same kernel as 17G65.
But I can't install the web drivers because it's meant for 17G65 and my hackintosh reports 17G66.
So when I try to install the driver i get the error message from the screenshot below.

What can I do in this case?
Somehow force install the web driver?
Change the reported build number?
Reinstall?

You could use this new gibMacOS download method to get an older 10.13.5 Beta version of High Sierra. I'm not sure why the kernel version was changed. Maybe for a security update ?

Updated Mac OS High Sierra Installation Video
It's been over two years since the first High Sierra video guide was posted. Clover has evolved since then, we've now got AppleALC and Lilu kext method for audio support. A USBPorts.kext for proper USB function etc.

I've primarily documented how to customize your High Sierra Unibeast USB made with the 8.4.0 version of Unibeast. Hopefully those of you using Nvidia Pascal cards that require Web drivers have saved your 10.13.6 installer app so that you can use it to make a new installer. Cards like the GTX 1050 (Ti) are Pascal based. There are problems with the (17G66) kernel version of the High Sierra install app and the web drivers. See: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...17g66-nvidia-doesnt-work.295760/#post-2104816

If you still have to download High Sierra 10.13.6 to make your new installer, take a look at the Purchased tab on the Mac App Store or you can re-download again using the gibMacOS method which I've also posted a guide for.

gibMacOS Tutorial ~ How to Download macOS Catalina

I will post a link here once the new tutorial video is posted.

I don't know if the web drivers will ever work with 17G66. Nvidia and Apple have a rift between them and don't work together. There is a card called the Yeston RX 550 4GB that will work with HS, Mojave and Catalina. It can be bought on Amazon and Ebay. It must be the 4GB version as the 2GB won't work with macOS at all.
