You should downgrade the NVIDIA driver. I had the exact same issue. Downgrading to .106 solved my problem.

There's a ticket on the NVIDIAGraphicsFixUp sourceforge page that describes several other users having the same issue. The ticket links to a Reddit page: with the steps you should follow. I skipped step 5 because I'm using NVIDIAGraphicsFixUp.

Download for .106 drivers
Download for webdriver.sh

Steps from Reddit:

Set build using webdriver:
Code:
./webdriver.sh -m 17D47
An alternative to the steps on Reddit is using the InsanelyMac NVIDIA driver repackager. Follow the instructions in Readme.txt. This method does not require Pacifist. Make sure you have 10.3.3 installed and instead of the latest driver (as per readme.txt) use the .106 driver I've linked above. I have not tested this method but it should work as the script extracts whatever driver (.pkg) is there and extracts the build number using commnadline tools.
Success !! System definition is imac 17,1
Downloaded the *.106 driver, webdriver.sh, InsanelyMac NVIDIA driver repackager.

Steps to do it

1. Repackage the Nvidia *106 driver using InsanelyMac NVIDIA driver repackager. (Please check the readme file inside it to know how to repack)
2. Uninstall the latest driver from preference pane if necessary.
3. Install the repackaged driver from desktop (this is the output package by step 1)
4. Open terminal and navigate to webdriver.sh location and type sudo ./webdriver.sh -m 17D47
5. Hit Enter and type your password then reboot.

Hi,

I tried the combo update on 10.13.1. But now the system wont boot. It reboots immedialely after the progressbar shows up.

I have tried -liluoff boot parameter, now it does boot up, show regular hard disk activity, but after about 60% of the progressbar, the monitor goes blank.

Tried updating lilu.kext in 'Other' folder as well as '10.13' folder but no success.

My system configuration: Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 TH with Intel i7 6700K, 16GB of DDR4 RAM and Sapphire Radeon RX 470 4GB graphics card. The monitor is connected with DP. Also tried using HDMI port, but same result.

Any suggestions?

[SOLVED]: I’m currently on 10.13.1 and when trying to update to High Sierra 10.13.3 it downloads and reboots and then I navigate to "Install macOS from Macintosh HDD" and it boots for a little while then gray screen with spinning wheel. If I force reboot I can still boot into my original install of 10.13.1 (System Definitions: iMac 14.2).

Suggestions on why the update won't complete?

- Attached image of white screen that occurs during the 10.13.3 update
- Attached the verbose mode output when running the update after reboot

Downloaded 10.13.3 update. First attempt failed to initiate. Reran and everything went smoothly. Had to reinstall Audio. Still having periodic Wifi issues as noted in 10.13.2 update notes.

Use your phone to video the boot process in verbose mode and cycle through it frame by frame to see exactly which next is throwing the panic. Once you figure out which kext is causing the problem reboot to a prior version of the OS and replace that kext with the latest version. For my config, appleintelle1000e.kext caused the panic. Later, I experienced reboots after login caused by an older Realtek kext.

It just stops at "kextd stall [0], (240s): 'AppleACPICPU'" I tried looking online for the related kext but couldn't find it or find what that correlates to.

[RESOLUTION]: Not sure what I was thinking, but the EFI\Kexts\Other folder was empty which was causing the panic. Filled the folder with the necessary kexts and then re-downloaded and rebooted. Navigated to Boot MacOS from HD and then it updated for a little > Went to aforementioned Gray screen for a little > Auto reboot > Boot into HD > Finished update... Appreciate all whom attempted to help.

Update went smoothly on my sig build. No problems at all so far. Did not even have to patch audio this time.
Hi, I know this isn't related at all, but do you have the link to the thread for the older multi-booting guide that involved gpt sync and I think it was Windows 8 as well?

Hey guys just thought I'd mentioned how I managed to install the old 106 driver. (using a gtx 980 on z170-A). I have read thru this thread and found some people like myself that used the German method yet the driver would not work. The Nvidia panel would report it was using the Webdriver, yet it looked exactly like the default macOS driver. (Yes I have emulated nvRam). I don't know anything about running scripts thru the terminal because I'm a total n00b so I had no idea how to force the 106 driver to work. I switched back to the macOS driver via the Nvidia panel and rebooted. Ran multibeast again and just installed the "uefi boot mode" under Quickstart. Rebooted. Ran multibeast again, this time I selected all my customizations for the build and reinstalled the "Clover UEFI Boot Mode + Emulated NVRAM". Rebooted. The 106 driver automatically loaded.
To summarize, I installed the 106 driver via the German method. Made sure macOS default driver was selected. Ran mutlibeast to essentially delete previous customizations. rebooted. Then reran multibeast again, this time with customizations (be sure to included "emulate nvram"). Reboot and the 106 driver should automatically load. Hope this was helpful to other noobs out there that had the same issue.

Just did a relatively painless update from 10.13.2 to 10.13.3 on a GA-Z170X-UD5 | i7 6700K | GTX 950 (iMac 14,2). It seemed as though most issues in the forum were around the GTX video card, so I unplugged it, updated, then plugged it back in and installed the current nVidia drivers. I haven't noticed any degraded video performance.

[update]
After a few days of use I did feel that the video had a very slight stutter. I used nvidia-update.sh to roll back to the .106 version of the nVidia driver, which fixed the problem. Also, i realized after plugging in an audio amp at the back panel that I didn't have any audio on the Internal Speakers port (green jack). Running audio_cloverALC-130.command_v0.3 fixed the problem.
