What about performance? anyone experiencing a slower "Mac"? I can feel that i.e. window handling is worse now.... some Safari pages seems to lock the computer temporarily

bad guys are WindowsServer, kernel_task, it just freezes now and then after 10.13.3. Sometimes when I type, there is a delay for the characters to appear..

I'm a little confused which high sierra version to run as a first installation. Is it the update, combo or update for macpro?

it seems i should be using the macpro of high sierra but then i see people discussing and using the combo with their similar setups. A little confusing.

I'm running first time:
asrock x299 motherboard
7900x
nvidia 1080 ti

This thread is for people who have already installed High Sierra and want to update to 10.13.3. If you want to install High Sierra for the first time, see the tonymacx86 installation for 10.13 Installation in the Guides menu at the top of this page.

Smooth and fast update with no problems, I had to download and install Nvidia drivers manually, sound was intact after update. All seems to be fine and running fast haven't noticed any delays or lags. I don't use Safari anyway as I am a faithful Firefox user for more than a decade now. I'll spent more time tomorrow on my Hackintosh if i notice anything weird i'll post here.

Well, I've posted this before, in the 10.13.2 supplemental update, but just in case someone skipped and needs to update and wants to keep the previous Nvidia driver because the new driver isn't very good:

Here's what worked for me......

The following assumes you have an nVidia 900 or 1000 series video card with the nVidia webdriver loaded and working:
  • Get webdriver.sh (vulgo's post and his work) from this post: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...isabling-nvidia-driver-driver-updated.239245/ Post#13.
  • Remove EmuVariableUefi-64.efi from Clover (I assume you would know where it is…)
  • Using the Nvidia driver utility (typically in the taskbar), change to OSX driver
  • Reboot and make sure the Nvidia driver does not load (there are a couple of different ways to do this - in Clover, under System Parameters, Inject NvidiaWeb would be one place to stop it from loading, right?)
  • Do the update (I did it from the App Store)
  • It will reboot, then in Clover boot into the update but make sure the Nvidia driver does not load (otherwise, expect an epic fail)
  • After the update does its thing (finishes with a reboot typically - remember no Nvidia....), login, start terminal, and change your directory to wherever webdriver.sh is…
  • In terminal, issue the command: sudo ./webdriver.sh -m 17D47 (or whatever you macOS version is, but according to vulgo, you may not need the macOS version, and you could get away with: sudo ./webdriver.sh -m)
  • Add EmuVariableUefi-64.efi back into Clover
  • Reboot and again, make sure the Nvidia driver does not load (meaning you should be still in the OSX driver with you boot into macOS)
  • With the Nvidia utility in the task bar, now select the Nvidia driver
  • Reboot again and test
  • Backup, backup, backup
