    Hi folks!

    I tried to install OSX 10.13 yesterday from a working 10.10.5 installation.
    Clover works, but every time the installation stucks in the middle.

    In verbose mode I get : "sound assertion in appleHDAdriver at line ...." 4 times then nothing and 5 to 10 minutes later I get a grey screen with a spinning beach ball. I tried with "nv_disable=1" and with the "-v-x-s-f cpus=1 nv_disable=1 -no-zp" combo but it doesn't work.

    I even removed my Nvidia 770 card, but nothing changed.

    My problem is : I can't roll back either nor boot from my recovery stick.
    Only my windows 7 partition works...

    My configuration is :
    i5 3.4
    8 GB Ram
    SSD
    Gygabite Z77N-WiFi
    Geforce GTX 770
    Profile : Imac13,2

    Try booting into verbose+single user mode, delete nvidia web driver kexts under /Library/Extensions. Then reboot and see.

    For 10.13 (HS), if you don't inject Nvidia (nor enable web driver) with Clover, it will boot directly using VESA mode. It seems "nv_disable=1" is not needed.

    Ok thanks :D.

    I tried and in single User it stucks with :

    "Root device is mounted read-only"

    I checked the root file system with : /sbin/fsck -fy
    "The volume OSX Base System appears to be OK"

    Then tried to mount it in read-write : /sbin/mount -uw /

    "Device is write locked"

    What do I have to do exactly in order to delete the nvidia web driver kexts under /Library/Extensions ?

    Wait I boot from the installation drive (disk4s2) do I have to go to my initial volume ? (disk1s1)

    Edit:

    I checked my drives (ls -l /dev/disk*)and saw them all. But as I tried to go to another than disk4 (for example : /dev/disk1s1) I got a permission denied.

    I can see all the Kext installed in disk4. Do I have to delete all with "NVDA*"
    Found this :
    NVDAGF100Hal
    NVDAGK100Hal
    NVDANV50HalTesla
    NVDAResman
    NVDAResmanTesla
    NVDAAtartup
    NVSMU


    Man I'm so lost...
