    successfully installed High Sierra, but encountered problems after trying to install the nvidia web driver. After installing the web driver, it boots into a black screen. Attempted to see where it was stuck in -v mode but after all the regular booting text, it also enters into a black screen.

    thanks for your work though!

    When I try to create the USB installer, I still meet the problem '/Applications/Install macOS High Sierra.app/ does not appear to be a valid OS installer application.' Tried to remove all the Install macOS High Sierra.app and re-download many times. Anyone help please?

    I managed to get a complete 5.9GB installer by using a third-party utility as mentioned by germ65. Credits to him.
