Man try to make high Sierra installation stick and install clover, after you install clover on usb drive ,
mount EFI from stick and replace entire EFI with mine. just replace entire refi folder with mine for installation.
After u installed High Sierra and boot for the first time on high Sierra hard drive install clover and replace all efi with my post install EFI.
Next steps its to install web driver , and don't restart, and run agtdp fix.

I mounted my EFI Partition and formatted it from there , there’s nothing in that partition now , when I get home from work I’ll start a fresh install , the files you gave me are for High Sierra right ?

Hi my friend, how are you??? First, congratulation for your post about your hardware. So, I want buy the video card gtx 1080 g1 gaming 8 GB like your card, but even with your post I want ask you about this card, because I need the hack for my job, so a need a guarantee before buy this card, because it´s expensive for me. So, you recommend gtx 1080 g1 gaming to install in the high Sierra or Sierra 10.12.6? And it´s just follow your post about the kext or I need to change anything in my config plist for the card make a good job in the hack?
My friend, thank´s a lot for your attention and sorry my bad English!!
