    Just wanted to add that I've spent countless hours on getting my Graphics Working in High Sierra and failed miserably. I've tried deleting drivers in single user mode multiple times and then screwing with the SIP multiple times to install the new drivers. With no drivers installed I can't even get High Sierra to boot into the non-accelerated NVidia mode (which works fine in Sierra). I have to take out my graphics card to boot into High Sierra.

    One thing that really has confused me is which flags/clover settings actually do anything when doing all of this troubleshooting. Currently, my boot params are "dart=0 nv_spanmodepolicy=1" and I've been trying to use the NvidiaWeb System Parameter to turn Web Drivers on or off.

    Do the boot options that look like they reflect the old boot params work in clover (nv_disable=1, nvda_drv=1 , kext-dev-mode=1) ?

    It seems like there are 3 different ways to do things which makes it extremely confusing. What's the right way to do things?

    I'm using SMBIOS iMac 14,2 if that matters.

    It looks like Apple has put up a new version of the installer. After finding High Sierra was incompatible with some of my audio plug-ins, I removed it, but I got the bug again. So I went for a 3rd install. I download the install app again and created an installer with createinstallmedia. And noticed I could not get past the 2nd stage of the install if I had NVWebDriverLibValFix injecting through Clover. I am talking after the first reboot where you choose the drive to install High Sierra on. The GUI comes up and you are greeted with "OSInstall.mpkg appears to be missing or damaged"

    Anyway, i removed that kext and continued the install from where it left off - no error and it proceeded like usual. When I got to the desktop and poked around, I realized the installer had installed build 17A405 and not 17A365. Where are those new web drivers! Lol

    Apple has put up a new version of the Install High Sierra app on the app store that installs build 17A405. The first installer installed build was 17A365 and that worked with 378.10.10.10.15.114.pkg.

    Currently there aren't any web drivers that will install OOB with the new build.

    Apple has thrown a monkey wrench in the way of hacks with Nvidia cards. We use to be able to update Sierra and not worry about the graphics driver. Now it seems to mater for High Sierra. I will have to take both of my cards out to get back to High Sierra after update. After that may have to uninstall and reinstall Nvidia drivers for supplemental update?
    I may have to go AMD card for my hack or just use IGPU and leave my 1070 cards for Windows 10 and Linux machine.

    Do the old drivers need uninstalled before updating or will the present Nvidia drivers give notice that a new version is available?
    Will I need to enable sip again to update?

    Okay, who's got the magic new answer? Still in a bootloop at gIOlockstate - tried the new drivers and the update - still no love.

    Stork - HELP! How do I get this 1060 up in running?

    Try rebooting with hibernate wake disabled if you're having KPs on reboot after updating to the latest nvidia drivers for the supplemental update?

    This new 17A405 version I installed from scratch without APFS conversion onto a blank drive. It would not install with NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext. See last post.

    So now with the new web drivers out for this version -

    I booted up with SIP ENABLED (CsrActiveConfig 0x0)
    Installed the Web Drivers
    Got the Gatekeeper Security message and allowed for Nvidia Extension.
    Before rebooting I changed my config.plist putting CsrActiveConfig back to 0x67
    So now booting with SIP DISABLED.
    At desktop with full resolution etc etc.

    SMBIOS 18,3

    Latest Clover 4233

    FakeSMC.kext
    IntelMausiEthernet.kext
    VoodooHDA.kext
    USBInjectAll.kext
    XHCI-200-series-injector.kext

    All injecting through Clover

    And an SSDT for CPUPM created by ssdtPRGen.sh in ACPI/patched
