I had a similar problem (and I too have an MBR setup).  Rather than installing the update from the App Store, I downloaded and installed it from the following link, which worked:

 

https://support.appl...37?locale=en_US

 

I hv tried to use the offline update package,but finally it failed after restarting computer!Does this need some changes in the Clover configuration or neccessary kexts put in the EFI/Clover/kexts?

How did you get the HS to install to MBR? I'm trying using Enoch BL but no joy yet....

using MBR patch...

Did you hide your Preboot partition? Unhide it and it'll show you a entry named "macOS Install", use App Store to install it and reboot to that entry

I know the Preboot partition,but many hackintoshers confirmed that it is just available on GPT.Is there any method to show or create the Preboot partition on MBR?

Hmm, that's hard. You can try some partition tool on Windows to convert it, I don't think it will work :(

I tried building an MBR installer using the Supplemental installer but it won't install....guess the mods need tweaking for the supplement, so far cannot update the package from App Store or with stand along download update...

Need to crack the update and find our where it is failing....

indeed, I am afraid subsequent update of 10.13.1 and onwards will face the issue too. let's hope a solution will come to light soon ..

Looking at the logs, it appears that the Supplemental update is looking for a partition (maybe  the rescue partition)...and not having it in MBR it fails.... I wonder if there is a way using MBR to create that partition?

Yes,u need to select the rescue partition called"Preboot" to apply the updates when the computer restarts.And this is the only entry to apply the updates.Maybe we can try to manually create the Preboot partition for the updates.So what is the partition format of the Preboot partition?

This did not happen during Sierra or El Capitan; am wondering whether it is a one off (needed by this particular supplemental update) or is it a new 'feature' of High Sierra system updates? Certainly hope it is the former ..

I wonder if a 600 mb HFS+ partition called "Preboot" would do it.... ? 

 

interesting suggestion :) worth a try at least; is it possible to resize HFS+ partition under MBR? if i remember correctly, it cannot be done, needs a reformat ..

With MBR how the devil do you get a recovery partition???

 

I installed it using the updated MBR patch posted on downloads, per crazybirdy... works perfectly with clover but no recovery partition was created....checked drive with GPRTD and nothing showing...

I have the same problem on my laptop (Legacy+Chameleon+MBR system), I used to update my hack by download offline update installer then install it directly. But on High Sierra, it seems not to be working anymore :(.
But for me, there's a workaround. Thank God I have High Sierra installed on my external drive, so I booted my laptop to my High Sierra external drive and install updater pkg to High Sierra partition on laptop's internal drive(installed it just like normal application). After that, I rebooted back to High Sierra on laptop's internal drive, aaaand it worked(I think :)), even if installer show "install failed" before.

glad to hear it works out for u :)

need to clarify with u - how many high sierra installation do you have? (reading the above gives the picture that you have 2 High Sierra installations, one external (usb) and one internal)

 

so u booted from USB (High Sierra system drive), and then installed the 10.13.1 update to the internal drive (that also has High Sierra 10.13), and when prompted to reboot, u now booted from the internal drive instead, and your internal drive shown it has been updated to 10.13.1.

 

is the above correct in describing your situation?

I just went with Clover and it installed it fine from AppStore. As long as there is a Recovery Partition it works.

Pretty cool!How to create a Recovery partition on MBR??

That's right my friend. I have two High Sierra installation, one on my laptop and one on my external drive. I've tried to install Supplemental update and 10.13.1 update using this method, and both worked (I also updated High Sierra on my PC using this external drive, despite my PC using GPT :D)

      Hi,
       
      I'm rather new to Hackintosh and trying my first build with OpenCore on AMD, but I run into issues causing OpenCore to crash before even loading the macOS installer. As I'm not sure which one is causing the crash, I'm trying to resolve all of them and one of the error messages has to do with WhateverGreen, which I was able to see in this slow-mo loading video. Basically I'm getting an error that I'm running an unsupported processor, even though I think I was following this guide by the step.
      What could be causing this and what do I need to do to resolve it?

      Hi team,
       
      I'm looking for the best route to achieve this upgrade, so I have been stuck with HS since Nvidia drivers stopped being supported on newer MacOS releases. Now I'm having an AMD 5700 xt on the way and want to plan the upgrade properly. I have added some information below and questions that might help with your recommendation.
       
      Current GPU 1080 ti with Nvidia webdrivers installed. So should I uninstall the webdriver before adding the new GPU? Clover is being used and EFI attached. Any kext must be removed? or parameters adjusted MacOS HS 10.13.6, should I upgrade before using the new GPU? CPU: 9900K Motherboard:ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) Dual Monitors I have a Time machine backup, Do you recommend a fresh install? and If I did, will I be able to restore my data/apps as-is?  
      Please let yourself free to explore further aspects to considers.

      Boot stopped at this. I'll attach my Clover folder and a picture from boot.

      Everything works fine on Sierra.

      *REUPLOADED updated CLOVER folder, attached as "v5_591g_55tu_updated_CLOVER.zip" (uploaded to OSXLatitude forum, can't upload here).
       
      I'm using High Sierra in Dual-boot with Windows 8.1. To do this in a clean install or with Windows installed first try my little minimal guide:
       
      Dual-boot clean install (on one drive):
      1. Boot into your Mac installer, Create 2 partitions in GUID table (1 for Win (I used FAT32 but I think it's no matter what), 1 for Mac), 
      2. Install Mac, boot with your USB, *mount your EFI partition (use terminal or an EFI mounter app), create an EFI folder, copy the CLOVER folder I attached to the EFI folder, restart,
      3. Boot into your Win installer, Format the partition you created for Win, install. 
      4. Now, it's automatically booting into Windows. To use Clover open cmd in administrator, type:
      bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi 5. You're done! It will booting into Clover when you start the system, and you can select Win or Mac (or another OS if installed on a 3rd partition).
       
      Dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
      If you already have Windows and you don't want to lose all your data there is a hope:
      You need bootable Mac Installer and a full system restore image (you can search for it).
      (You may see errors if your EFI partition is not 200 MB)
      1. Boot into your Windows, resize your partition or create one for Mac.
      2. Boot into your Mac installer and in Disk Utility format the partition you created.
      3. Restore from image: select your full system restore image.
      4. When it's finished restoring you just need to restart, then boot to the system with your usb.
      5. Do Step 2. from "*" from clean install dual-boot above. but KEEP "Microsoft" FOLDER IN IT!
      6. Do Step 4. from clean install dual-boot above.
      7. You're done! You can select your old Windows and your new macOS!
      (I only tried with Windows 8/8.1/10. I don't know Windows 7,etc.)
       
      IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING MAC RESTORE:
      Make sure you have partitions in GPT The best version for restore method is Windows 8.1. It's using 200 MB EFI. Windows 10 using 100 MB EFI and will annoy the Mac restore. You can use with Windows 10, just ignore the errors IF YOU GETTING ERRORS DURING WINDOWS INSTALLATION (could not be formatted, etc):
      Make sure you have GPT partitions, and GPT installer IF YOU USED RESTORE METHOD THEN CAN'T MOUNT YOUR EFI PARTITION (No EFI partition found)
      It's because your EFI is not 200 MB or not an "Apple" original EFI,  but do not worry, try another EFI mounter, or mount from terminal (I used EFI mounter v3: Getting errors, but you can mount and use without problem) You also could "mount" the EFI from windows, for that open cmd and type: diskpart list vol (Now select the "System" volume,(FAT 32) For example I select 4) sel vol 4 list part (Select System type partition, for example 2) sel part 2 assign letter=b (This will "mount" your EFI partition, to manage files download totalcmd or explorer++ (run as admin)) remove letter=b (This will "unmount" your EFI) Here is a video from dual-boot with Windows installed first (on one drive):
