  1. I had but only a couple of times. Will give it a further go with keep selecting that partition till it finished. Thank oyu.
  2. Anyone have any tips to finding out why the update is failing to install for me. I have tried both via the AppStore and the Combo Update, trying to go from 10.13.4 to 10.13.6. Each time the progress bar moves a little, the computer reboots, then instead of continuing the install it proceeds to boot up as 10.13.4 again. Had no issues doing all the previous point upgrades.

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    I haven't tried, been waiting for Nvidia to release a beta driver.
  4. Cheers, I had Lilu ver 1.2.3 there but had removed NvidiaGraphicsFixup as people were reporting it working well without it. I'll give 1.2.6 and 1.2.7 a try. Note since I rebooted, the problems hasn't cropped up again yet BUT I didn't try recreating the problem again.
  5.

  6. Using YACReaderLibrary for a while suddenly all the comic covers were corrupt, and now so is Safari. Which on screen now looks like on my screen (swapped to mobile safari as Mac now messed up)
  7. Finding the new driver works well (without the fix kext installed), although not perfect. i played a WMV video file in VLC last night and had weird graphical breaks across the screen (like something hit glass at a specific point and breaking in pieces). Have a 5 sec video demonstrating it but it’s apparently too big to attach.
  8. I only installed HS a couple of days ago but I have had weird text & UI corruption / flickering in Chrome last night (1080ti, using latest Webdrive and NvidiaGraphicsFixup), and I've seen light flickering once in Safari's toolbar. Not something I experience in Sierra.
  9. It was a security beta for after 10.12.6 it seems. (I thought I'd turned beta off, but it had turned back on again) I've gone and installed 10.13.4 now anyway.
  10. Anyone have the WebDrivers for 10.12.6 version 16G1404 handy? Been a while since I used my hackintosh and I've completely forgotten the mod I need to make to the package to get it to install.
  11. I've read the successes with Fresh installs of High Sierra and Nvidia. Anyone succeeded with an upgraded install? Looking to upgrade my Sierra install (with a 1080ti) to High Sierra.
  12. This is really disappointing. Was hoping to try out HS, but I've a GTX 970. Hope Nvidia & Apple sort themselves out soon.

    Boot hanging at Apple Logo / +++++++

    Went back to a much older version of Clover (3922, thank you backups) and it still wouldn't boot. Then I remembered that a little while ago I let AISuite in Windows tune / overclock the CPU (i7 4790k) from the stock 4GHZ per core to 4.5GHZ. It also dropped the ram speed from 1600 to 1066 and set the BLCK speed to 125, from 100. Resetting those changes in the BIOS allowed OSX / Clover 3922 to boot! So was it because there was a CPU key section in the config.plist which had values that didn't match what the bios was using? or because XMPDetection was set to false (and AISuite had disabled the XMP profile in the BIOS) ... or what I wonder. Just as an addendum ... Reading the Clover config.plist docs, it was that the BusSpeedKHz was set to the old value. To quote the docs "If this value is not correct, the kernel will not start at all.". After the bios change there was a 250khz difference. Also having the FrequencyMHz set can "cause system instability ....". So there we go.

    Boot hanging at Apple Logo / +++++++

    Tried updating from 39xx to 4035 (manually copying files from the Clover ISO to the EFI folder) but still hangs in the same way. I have been using OsxAptioFix2Drv No change with KernelPM set. It's not something I've needed previously. (Running 10.12 ATM, Clover docs suggest this is for 10.8.5 and 10.9) Now trying Verbose and Safe Mode together is sometimes causing the computer to reboot. Text on boot: Occasionally you'll see "p" or "pani" and a solid cursor block. So its panicing very early. One of thing of note. While it's sitting on the +'s the fan is getting faster & slower and occasionally I can hear the HD spinning (there are a mix of SSDs and HD's in the computer). -- Edit 1 Tried deleting the kext cache manually. but no change.
  15. I tried to boot into my Hackintosh for the first time in a 2 months but it is hanging at the Apple Logo. When I turn on verbose (Clover) it hangs after printing a bunch of pluses / +++++++++. I tried to boot into Safe mode but same results. I also can't boot backup clone (uses same Clover install). I am trying to remember if when I last used OSX I updated Clover or not (no changes made to config.plist since last year, nor any hardware changes to the machine). Certainly till then it had been working fine with 10.11 & then 10.12 Is there any easy way to create a Clover updater that doesn't require going through creating a full installer? I can work inside the EFI partition from Windows if there is anything I might be able to do from there.
