I have 10.13.6 (17G5019) with nVidia web drivers (387.10.10.10.40.122). I'm on the internet, and installing previous web driver versions (which have the same problem - I tried them too) will update themselves to the latest .122 version.
I have an H77M-ITX Asrock board with an i5-3570k CPU and a Gigabyte nVidia 1050 (non-Ti) graphics card. HDMI output.

I can't seem to get the web drivers installed. They'll .. install .. but then after the reboot, the web drivers are still selected, but they're unaccellerated 1024x768 mode, which is useless.

Any tips and tricks?

If you have a real Mac, you need to disable SIP (https://www.macworld.com/article/2986118/how-to-modify-system-integrity-protection-in-el-capitan.html) to install the CUDA driver package from either Nvidia or using any of these scripts.

It's misleading because the driver will install "fine", as-in, no errors reported but they aren't actually being installed because SIP is keeping the kext from being copied over. This is why the panel in system preferences keeps reporting there's a newer driver and the but you get the red !

So make sure SIP is disabled when you install it. I believe you can re-enable it after, maybe not?

Final note, I was installing cuda for OctaneRender which still didn't work because NVIDIA Driver 418.xx series is incompatible with Octane (which as of writing this is the most recent version available for OSX). You need to get the older version 410.130, which the system will tell you is outdated but you need to not update (for now)

I am new to the hackintosh,I made a fresh installation on my system with high sierra (Build ID 17G66) , and after trying the script, every time I start the system the mac logo appears and then the monitor goes black, is there anything I am doing wrong? as I said it is a fresh installation.

Also I am using iMac15,1 as system definition
P.S Sorry for my bad English
