I tried adding these kexts to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Others/ but that didn't fix my issue. I still have the same problem, Apple logo appears with progress bar underneath it. When the progress bar fills, grey screen appears and it just stays there.

had the same problem, so i tried it again with my case opened. I saw that the Drive indicator was flashing even when i got the grey screen again, so i left it alone for about 40mins and the system reebooted several times with clover showing up for a few seconds so i tought the install would work with only not displaying anything. However i hardreseted the system after 1,5h of grey screen and now neither high sierra is installed nor can i boot into my old sierra install :/

Just reporting that I followed the advice in this thread, and everything is working GREAT! Running Asus gryphon 787, Intel 4670K, Asus GTX 770 (did not need nvidia alternative drivers for this card), and an SSD which has been converted to APFS.

Sound, ethernet, and USB are all working. Even the trackpad settings which were broken in sierra (causing a crash), are now visible. The only kext I placed in efi/clover/other was the fakeSMC and only other change was updating clover. Very simple. Surprised how well this has gone so far. I really appreciate the work you've all done to document and instruct. THANK YOU!!!!

I had a problem free upgrade going from Sierra to High Sierra.

Only issue is that I didn't seem to get APFS. Is it better for hackintoshers to stick with HFS+ for now, or should I go through the trouble of formatting my drive, formatting as APFS and then install High Sierra from USB?
