    Make a bootable backup of your system disk before by means of Carbon Copy Cloner! Just in case!:thumbup:

    Then use the updated web driver.

    I used my old ATI HD6870 to boot and clean install 10.13, installed Nvidia Webdrivers, Ran AGDPfix.app, installed Lilu and NividiaGraphicsFixup in Clover other folder, used KextBeast to install NVWebDriverLibValFix.kext to L/E, Ran Kext Utility to fix permissions. Rebooted and verified working with GTX 1050. Then ran High Sierra Supplemental Update, rebooted to osInstall and let it finish. Pulled out GTX 1050 and again booted with ATI HD6870. Upon reboot Nvidia prompted to update web drivers, ran the update and ran Kext Utility before reboot. Swapped video cards, fired it up, and boom, good to go!

    Unfortunately with High Sierra it seems that the newer Nvidia GTX cards that need web drivers will have issues with every update, and since X99 doesn’t have built in Intel graphics you’ll need a video card that supports native OS X drivers to get past black screen to apply fixes. I would look on eBay for a ATI Radeon HD6870, as it works OOB with clover. There could be other solutions, just my two cents

    Just naked installation of the the Nvidia Webdriver? My sys is clean at this time.
    No check "NividaWeb" in system parameters? Sip? NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext? etc etc?

    What worries me is the fact that when booting the third time the installer still tells you 17 min remaining! This has nothing to do with the graphics card! Something is wrong!

    Are you sure that you use the FULL MacOS Install Package???

    I see nor reason for using NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext during the macOS Install process... It is neither required by the USB Flash Drive Installer, nor the System Disk. It will be required after installing the Web Drivers. That's also the moment wenn you have to check "NvidiaWeb..

    Don't worry about the "Install RC scripts" and "Clover Preference Pane". Not mandatory or really required!

    Sure! Web Driver Install + Black Screen Prevention. You will have to find your proper way to do it.

    That's why you should backup your system disk at any cost before, for security and fall back reasons!

    Aloha, I don't mean to hijack this thread but may I ask what bios version you are running and also ask if you could upload your clover config and kexts? I have the same motherboard and video card though I have a i7-6900 cpu. I am currently running Sierra 10.12.6 and intend to upgrade to High Seirra. Thanks.

    Apart from the impressive system results, how did you manage to properly install the web driver? Just for all others yet wandering around in the dark :lol:;)
