Hi guys,

I've found a solution for the 17G66 build of macOS High Sierra incompatibility with NVIDIA drivers.
What worked for me:
- Install macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra (17G66)
- Update it - in my case to High Sierra (17G12034).
- install 387.10.10.10.40.135 NVIDIA driver for macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra (17G12034) - you can find it in download section of this site
- DONE :)

May be it's a good idea before updating macOS to search for a working NVIDIA driver and updating to just this version that has a working driver for it.

How did you do this step when the MAS only offers 17G66 ?
Once 17G66 was installed macOS offered me to update it.
Obviously to the latest security update 17G12034.
This approach was suggested in another thread here but honestly I cannot remember which one exactly.

Backup your existing .plist first. Then delete it from your Clover folder. Add the one I've attached below and see if the sound works after a reboot. Note that you must have Lilu and AppleALC kexts installed for it to work. Install them to /L/E with kextbeast if you are running HS or Mojave and not Catalina.

You should also remove the SSDT-ALC221.aml from the ACPI/patched folder if you have that there.
Thank you.
work for me only with layout-id: 0B000000
No dsdt in Opencore.

I have a couple HP 8300 Elites and I’d like to use one of them (A HP 8300 SFF - i7 3370 intel HD 4000) as a backup to another Hack that still uses Yosemite.

Can I follow this guide, using the same attachments to successfully install Yosemite on it?

Many thanks in advance

I haven't tested that so not sure. Let us know how it works. Try the Yosemite versions of Unibeast and Multibeast and see what happens. Set the BIOS for UEFI and make a UEFI UB installer.
