I have secured the lower cost NUC8 and put my M.2 SSD from my NUC 7 and it works, sort of. The new one is begging for a fresh install. I will post more everything after I have worked through getting this to work. I put 32GB DDR4-2400 in it so it has plenty of RAM which is a good addition to any system. Looking forward to this one.

Hey dude! How did you do it? I tried both UniBeast and RehabMan's methods (using the NUC7 installer config.plist) but after the install happens successfully (took some rebooting and -v flags) and I install Clover onto the M2 drive it's just stuck in a boot loop.

Any special things you did or bios settings or boot flags?

I have the higher end NUC8 with 2 x NVME 500gb and 32gb ram. Any tips or pointers you can provide would be super helpful! I got Windows 10 running fine on the 2nd NVME I'm really hoping I can get macOS to work on this!

Not yet, as the current High Sierra version does not support RX Vega M GL Graphics card, but will soon.
What makes you say that it will support it soon?

I gave up on getting HS going on the NUC8i7HVK... please give me a reason to not return it to Amazon! There is hope??

I used https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/unibeast-install-macos-high-sierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.235474/
and a Samsung 960 EVO M.2 hard drive. I also updated the BIOS to the latest Intel rev available as it was what was needed.
Me too !
after your wise advise to update to the last Bios first, works like a Charm...
At Stock Speed 18224 GB4 multi-core https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/8588548
At 4.5Ghz all Cores 19405 GB4 https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/8599977
and 5822 Single-Core Score https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/8600061
Fastest Mac Mini ever!! As it should have been...
With Samsung 970 EVO SSD NVME right out of the Box recognise with Apple ssd original driver and Trim score 3000 MB/S read speed and 2400MB/S Write speed on Black Magic Disk speed and AJA Disk Speed test....
WAOW....
No problem to sign in Apple Account and download all my softwares!! out of the box....
No sound yet, but don't care, i use USB natively compliant sound card perfectly recognise
all USB port works, even the USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 at 900MB/S read speed measured with Black Magic on my SanDisk Extreme 900 !!
No graphic hardware support yet, don't care, don't play on Mac, No slow down caused with this issue with my Audio DAW Pro software: Logic Pro X 10.4.1 Cubase 9 or Studio One 4 !!!
Would say as George Clooney... What else?... do i need ... Nothing sir... everything perfect... thank you intel, thank you Apple and thank you TonyMacx86 for making that possible... ( for 999$ only the Nuc, plus 970EVO plus RAM of course at your choice)

Hi! How happy are you with your Hades Canyon Hackintosh? Are all the I/O ports working? How about the GPU?
