glad you made it! did you manage to update as well?
in my case i updated to 10.13.4 and the next day i remembered to update the apfs.efi. so i still do not understand what caused all this mess.
As a side note, everybody suggests Carboncopy or super duper, but Timemachine does a great job as well.
also it is always good to have a working copy of your EFI partition in a USB before updating so you can use it in such cases.
Update went smoothly, which only deepens the confusion.
It looks like it wasn't injecting the kexts and by forcing it from the clover menu, it worked.
I'm now using the same setup I was using before, which wouldn't boot. So strange.

Yes i know... Hackintosh keeps you on your toes all the time. thats the downside.
2 hours ago i lost keyboard (had to unplug and plug again). never happened the last year ...
Before i get into this world (hackintosh) i though computers were just maths repeating themselves based on comands. but for 2 years now i believe that good and evil fights inside them .... :p
i wish somebody could explain that before somebody else start a religion :lol:

But in my opinion macOS deserves all the trouble and even some.

anyways glad it worked out for you - you earned your iMac Pro wallpaper with your sweat!!, always keep backups and a working EFI in a USB stick.
i am far from expert and i couldn't be of help this time, but i have many many hours of X79 tweaking on my back so ... anytime i ll be glad to try and help :)

caniggia, that is so true, especially with this exasperating issue that I've been dealing with over the years. At the end of the day, the solution always seemed to be to restart 4-5 times until it began to work again. Whatever selections I made from the Clover menu were pretty much superstitious. Then it would be stable for months until sunspot activity, chemtrails, Y2K, the ghost of Steve Jobs turned up. But as for maths repeating themselves ... nah.

I kept getting does printf work?? error as soon as I enabled thunderbolt 3 card and using
AptioMemoryFix.efi.i fixed by enabling Above 4G Decoding in Bios Boot Menu.might be worth a try for others with same prob

Thanks, @zappy39!

I was booting without any problems in 10.13.4 with the current version of Clover when I got greedy and changed one of my OC parameters in BIOS. In the past, this hasn't been problematic but I immediately started to get the "couldn't allocate runtime area" errors. Changing back the BIOS setting didn't help. Removing my Thunderbolt Dual Display EXII card also didn't work, nor did resetting BIOS. Enabling Above 4G Decoding worked like a charm.
