omg, that was the worst upgrade i remember on (PC) hackintosh ;(
I had a problems with upgrade supplemental update(couldn't finish installation) so i downloaded whole source from AppStore(supplemental included) and prepared USB again with:
Code:
sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction && say macOS Sierra beta installed to usb
with latest Clover and kext in Other:
Code:
AppleIntelE1000e.kext
FakeSMC.kext
Lilu.kext
NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext
IntelGraphicsFixup.kext
EFI source in attachment for installation only.

After that i booted from USB, install system again(not fresh, just typical installation over files) and it worked... but couldn't boot from MacOS partition(finish installation) to system(restart loop etc). No boot flags worked, so i read somewhere that i should try without GFX and that was it(disabling in BIOS didn't help).

Finally i had to remove GFX GPU physically from motherboard and finish installation on iGPU.
After login i installed WebDriver-378.10.10.10.15.117.pkg restarted PC and connected GFX again to motherboard.
Now everything works fine but i hope that future upgrades will be similar to these before HighSierra.

On a fresh build this update came very useful. It seemed to help post-installation run a lot smoother since it was the first thing I did after installation. I initially had a failed attempt on a non-updated Sierra install with a variety of obvious and less obvious issues.

Ok this is for everybody else with similar motherboards.
as of now, the whole configuration works with just 3 extensions.
  1. install latest Lilu.kext into /Library/Extensions using KextBeast.
  2. install latest NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext into /Library/Extensions using KextBeast.
    • These two kexts fix the black screen at boot for iMac17,1 SMBIOS. (not the boot loop issue)
  3. Put EmuVariableUefi.efi into /EFI/CLOVER/Drivers64UEFI
    • This is the extensions that actually fixes the boot loop issue, the main issue is caused not because of some NVRAM support but because the WebDriver is apparently not being properly selected at boot, it defaults to OS X Default Graphics Driver instead of Nvidia Web Driver.
I assume since the driver is installed correctly, HDMI audio via the graphics card should work with out any kexts or patches.
and for me it defiantly does. (Oddly enough I don't remember having this in 10.12.6)

In terms of tags, this is what I have:
  • nvda_drv=1 is disabled
  • NvidiaWeb = False
  • Inject Kexts = Detect (not sure if thats even important, you can leave it as yes)
Honestly I'm not sure if thats what made everything work, at least for me it did.
Dude, I owe you a beer...it worked
I’ve been at this for days and you seemed to have found the right combo for my motherboard...thanks for posting your info

Haha!
Well some good news from my end, I went for the gusto and updated the update and so far there’s no smoke or sparks. Seems to be working.

Next challenge is 60hz 4K (30hz at the moment) on my Samsung TV. Getting closer...or going crazy, not sure which...

Oddly enough i also have Samsung.
When I get to 4K resolution, the refresh rate drops to 30hz...so fast moving motion on screen looks a little stuttery. Unlike Windows, MacOS doesn’t play nice with many 4K TV’s.

The trick is to try and force 60hz. I was able to do it in Sierra with a DisplayPort adapter and SwitchResX. Was hoping that was not needed in High Sierra but so far think it’s the same.

Update us if you succeed, i was also interested in 32 inch screen at 4k.
But after you telling me that 60hz doesn't work im kinda hesitant.

So far I can confirm it works with the Club3d DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter and the technique used in Sierra. But your HiDpi choices are limited. Still tinkering though and will let you know what I find

Hey what backup software are you using?

I’m using Acronis which is the worst! Used to be good now totally sucks.
