Hi there! I had some downtime, so I thought i'd do a fresh install on a fresh SSD and update my Hackintosh to 10.13.6. (I'm running a Titan Xp so this is the end of the line for me)

Last time I tried this (around 10.13.4) , I couldn't get past the prohibited symbol so I gave up, installed Sierra, and hoped all this would be sorted out in a year. Well, i'm having the same issue. I'm using a USB 2.0 stick, and tried every port on my computer, and tried a USB hub connected to a USB 2 port and it's still not working.

I'm currently making another USB installer just to make sure it's not this particular USB stick. But I updated my older hackintosh to 10.13.6 with zero issues, so it's a bit frustrating that my Skylake build isn't taking to it as easily. :)

I've scoured the forums and all I can see is the same advice over and over again, to try all the USB ports (make sure fast boot is off etc), but i've done that and not sure what to try next. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
