I did use the 10.13.2 Nvidia upgrade but I am trying with the WebDriver-378.10.10.10.25.104 and it won't let me saying "Mac OS X version 10.13.2 (17C205) is required for this update. Please update your OS version and try again." Right now OSX is up to date so I don't understand why it won't let me. My current drivers are 378.10.10.10.25.103.

Did not work at the first time for me
Boot on clover "Install macOS from..." starved at 80 % the end of progression bar

What I did for success :
Restored my disk from a clone
moved my fakesmc.kext from L/E to /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other (seems to be the success reason)
Downloaded High Sierra update again and then installation was OK
Installed Nvidia drivers (104) from drivers manager after restart

I used the Nvidia drivers manager for update to 378.10.10.10.25.104 at reboot and that work (no need to run the Nvidia pkg again)

Every time I try to run this update it bricks my partition and I have to restore from a backup, can’t repair the file system, can only rescue everything from Linux and erase

Struggling with this update. I waited until the Nvidia drivers (1050 TI) were available. I just updated and a normal boot after the boot hangs near the end. So I am booting in safe mode and that succeeds and I think I need to mount /Volumes/EFI to put fakeSMC in place as per instructions in the initial post. But in safe mode I cannot mount /Volumes/EFI with EFI mounter V3. I have done this many times and I am sure I have the correct drive. "Apple handler failed -1000)" . Any idea how to move past this?

Ok a got around it. Here is what I ran into and how I fixed it:

1. Stuck at 80% of the boot cycle
2. After that I got a screen with " MacOS could not be installed on you computer" ".....IOSInstall.mpkg... appears to be missing ..."
3. Unable to mount /Volumes/EFI.... to install fakeSMC kext as per thread start instructions.

Here is what I did that got me a round those 2 issues (please read the whole thing if you have trouble):

Problem 3.

- If you boot of the temporary update "partition" in clover you cannot mount /Volume/EFI. You need manually select the standard Clover Mac OS X selection. Then you can mount /Volume/EFI with the EFI mounter V3.
- This allowed me to put the fakeSMC in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
- That allowed me to get around the 80% stuck (but please continue to read if you have this)

Problem 2.

- I think because of the all the tinkering and aborted upgrade I ran into the upgrade failing.
- Chose to boot of the old (not upgraded) Partition in Clover and ran the Combo update (not the App Store version) and reapplied the update.
- Now with the fakeSMC in place I could reboot and continue the upgrade. (But please continue to read)

Problem 1.

- Now with the fakeSMC in place I should be able to get around the 80% boot problem
- As a safety measure (???) at each reboot during the upgrade process (I think there are 3) I selected (press space bar in clover before it boots) "Set Nvidia to VESA".
- This caused the upgrade to complete.
- After completion and a full boot I was able to install the new NVIDIA web drivers. (I have an EVGA GTX 1050 TI 4gb)

Now it works like a charm. USB/Audio/Video no extra fixes needed. Hope this helps.

It's all now installed and all but I always get random freezes when Nvidia loads in the top menu bar after each restart. Does anyone know how to tell whats going on?
