Update process finally started upon disabling filevault and re-enabled it after update
Thanks! I'll wait a little longer, since the AMD card costs $250... but if the drivers aren't forthcoming, I'll do as you suggest.What you need to do is install the latest lilu and whatevergreen kexts. Delete the web driver and power down the system. replace the nvidia card with a amd and power back up..Done!
This works for me as well. Thank you!new usb 3.0 patch for 10.14.1. works flawlessly:

SMBIOS'es 18.3 and 18.2 expect that the device has two graphic cards, internal and external, that's why there is flicker when you use only internal Intel card. 18.1 is your friend, since it is from a iMac without external card.Gosh, 10.14.1 got me a hard time! It installed OK but then, it just got stuck with no error message, with no crash or whatsoever, just not willing to start the GUI.
I even restored my previous 10.14 conf. from Time Machine backup 3 times, before I thought about changing the SMBIOS Product Model from iMac 17,1 to iMac 18,3 in the Clover options at boot time. Stupid me!
Then at last, it accepted starting, but with an intolerable flicker of the display, which I had already noticed with iMac 18,3 on Mojave.
Finally, after multiple trials, it turned out iMac 14,2 stopped the flicker for me.
