    Not working for me (upgrade from Sierra or clean install), latest Clover, I believe my Radeon 7750 is the culprit, various fixes (verde.kext, patched fakesmc or lilo + green) don't work for me in High Sierra it seems. Anyway, it will work eventually, I guess I have to show some patience until 10.13 is properly released with unibeast, multibeast and stuff.

    I use smbios mac pro 5,1 but that was a no go due to firmware, so tried mac pro 6,1 which allowed me to try to upgrade.

    Update: (In case someone with similar motherboard and/or older graphics cards reads)
    Using Clover 4184 and Nvidia Inject, and creating SMBIOS for Mac Pro 6,1 in Clover Configurator I got the install and High Sierra running using an old Nvidia GeForce GT 320 1GB DDR3 as graphics card.
    Once High Sierra was running I also tried with an even older Asus Nvidia GeForce 8400GS Silent 512MB, and using Nvidia Inject it appears to work.
    Then I tried with ASUS EAH Radeon 6670 Silent 1GB DDR3, and it also seems to work. This card is quite OK for my needs, so in case I don't get my ASUS 7750 running at least I have other options for High Sierra.

    Once installed I went back to Mac Pro 5,1 , I have previously had issues with cpu frequencies with 6,1.

    The latest version of Lilu and the other kexts now support High Sierra. If not, in the case of lilu, you can add -lilubeta in your boot args and it will work. The same with other lilu kexts but I don't know the specific sintax.

    In my case the update went flawless.

    Cheers!

    Refused to boot at first, it seemed the old DSMOS issue I had on the first beta builds was back (it happened at both attempts to install), then reset and pressed F2 at Clover, to get preboot.log , and it booted fine. High Sierra gave the weirdest errors since I started hackintoshing. The preboot logs for both the first boot of the installed OS from the pen drive and for the finalised installation are attached in here https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...rrible-performance.226097/page-5#post-1571898

    Another smooth upgrade now that I've figured out my process. I'm on a GA 10 series board using SMBIOS iMac 14,2, dual monitors on a pascal 1060 card, installing HSB to an APFS-formatted SSD. I'm using apfs.efi from beta 6 and clover 4152.
    - boot normal, update from App Store
    - upon installer reboot, boot from USB stick with clover 4152 and without emuvariables64efi kext, and select the temporary "install macOS" partition in clover boot partition menu, arrive at secondary installer, let that run, reboot
    - boot normal to HSB desktop
    - to get 1060 to somewhat kinda run (dual monitors work but it's still glitchy as heck) I followed the guide in the forum #1 (credit @kgp), just the graphics part, involving using patched installer, a "NVIDIA WebDriver Updater" utility that updates NvidiaWeb.kext with the current macOS version and overwriting AppleGraphicsControl.kext with the 10.12.6 version; having done that previously, with each beta update, I just have to redo the NVIDIA WebDriver Updater part and the overwrite AGC.kext part
    - re-download the new full installer, extract apfs.efi, and copy into various clover installs for the next time

    Thanks!

    What do you mean by this? Press reset is a must to boot ? Or press F2?
