I tried to update. I added lilu.kext and Intel gfx fix also, and it did restart 3 times to complete installation. But somehow it didn't show up after last restart and stayed black. Is it because of conflict with old hackernvme.kext from 12.6? I am now unable to delete that kext even if it was causing panic as from backup drive Ii cannot access APFS S/L/E to rename or delete that old hckrnvmefamily kext. Can anyone help and is there any RX 480 user who got this working? I don't know whats wrong.. and also I added lilu.kext and intelgfxfix and fake smc in other folder of EFI ..What am I doing wrong? Clover is also 4220, but something is giving a panic.

For APFS you need to add apfsEFI to your Clover Drivers64EFI folder. ApfsEFI can be found in the installer DMG file in usr/standalone folder under i386. Unfortunately, this should be done before loading HS because unless you have a mechanical HDD it automatically uses APFS mode. For High Sierra no nvme fixes should be needed.

THANKS GIGAMAXX FOR REPLY . but i checked the drivers 64efi folder it already had apfs.efi file in it.i actually downloaded that file from the guide . maybe i should have extracted from installation file only. i am going to try to install again

It has to be from a recent build, beta 8, or 9 is the same as this release.

For Intel HD 6XX (Kaby Lake) iGPUs do we still need ig-platform-id=0x59120000 or is that not needed? I know we need -disablegfxfirmware but I'm not sure what that does...

100 meg connection, took about 20 minutes... Now how about a Nvidia 980 TI driver? Suck with one monitor, maya cashes creating a primitive Siri blinks all over the place.... guess the waiting game begins....

Anybody notice crazy text on the boot screen after the High Sierra firmware upgrade? I use refind for mac and Windows and get a bunch of junk before I can boot....

I'm just finished installing this on a new 128GB Sandisk SSD now. Have a plethora of those lying around. Just waiting on UniBeast/MultiBeast and Nvidia drivers.

updated, had to switch from DisplayPort to DVI/HDMI ... which I discovered because my bluetooth speaker kicked on whilst the screen was black ... otherwise flawless upgrade.

Used the High Sierra audio guide, thanks Toledo! https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/high-sierra-desktop-realtek-applehda-audio.226433/

Gained 10 Gigs from the update, so that's nice as well!!

Gained 10 Gigs from the update...urm, what do you mean by this? For example, before update HS your Sierra disk occupied 50GB, after your disk only 40GB filled?
