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...

Follow this tutorial to create a bootable USB/drive to install HS 10.13 on MBR!

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)

      Good morning, everyone, I'm sorry if I was wrong in choosing the topic but I need help.
      I have found it extremely difficult to mount a Hackintosh in my acer.
      Setup;
      I5 2430m 2.4 6GB RAM
      Mobo P5we0 - Intel intel Graphics 3000
      At the moment I have not found out what my audio codecs are.
      but I'll leave the link on the motherboard.
      however, my real problem is several.
      I have already used the itakos image, I have already used several images that could be installed normally and that after installing the image I do not have internet via cable or wireless.
      And another, I already looked in other forums and I know that I will be called a donkey in the logical question but I have not been able to install the [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or clover to start from the Hard Disk, so I do not know what to do.At the moment I still do not know if there has already been someone who has already installed the High Sierra or just the Sierra in this notebook model and obtained permanent success.
      If anyone can help me, I'll be grateful.
      Installations without success, but with the system already installed in ACER;
      SIERRA
      HIGH SIERRA
      MOJAVE
      All with the same symptom. Starting only by the bootable USB stick and without internet connection via cable and wireless.

      So I FINALLY got my High Sierra thumb drive to boot and once I got to the language selection screen, I noticed I lost all connectivity to my keyboard and mouse.
       
      i tried plugging in both into all of my USB ports (2.0, 3.0, 3.1) to no avail.
       
      i made sure I had the latest USBInject kext and XHCI-Unsupported kext in the Other folder.
       
      i also noticed whilst troubleshooting, the thumb drive will ONLY boot using Verbose and plugged into one of the 2 3.1 ports.
       
      does anyone have ANY suggestions?? I’ve been struggling for a week now on this!!
       
      thanks in advance

      Buongiorno a tutti,
      E la prima volta che scrivo su questo forum, spero di non sbagliare nulla!
      Scrivo qua sperando che qualcuno di voi possa darmi una grossa mano, perchè ho letto di tutto, visto qualsiasi video possibile, ma non riesco proprio ad uscirne fuori.
      Ci avevo già provato 3 anni fa, ma ero riuscito solo su un notebook Sony, sul fisso non ero riuscito a fare nulla. Dicevano che c'erano problemi con i driver della serie Skylake, così ho voluto riprovare ora a distanza di anni.
      Premetto che non sono un informatico, non ho conoscenze particolari. Sono semplicemente un ragazzo che si informa, legge tutorial ed esegue, quindi chissà che la soluzione non sia in realtà una banale sciocchezza.
       
      Dunque, il problema consiste nel fatto che, in circa 8 ore di prove, non sia ancora riuscito ad andare oltre il caricamento del logo, dopo aver selezionato la chiavetta da clover.
      Sto cercando di installare High Sierra, ho provato con una chiavetta con un programma che non ho capito bene perchè, ma non posso scriverlo qui, e una con Clover Configurator (che tra l'altro, nella schermata boot mi da un'interfaccia diversa da quella che ho visto nel tutorial, o anche solo 3 anni prima), ma il problema è sempre lo stesso: dopo circa metà caricamento, o mi esce il simbolo di divieto, o si riavvia il computer, riportandomi nel boot di clover.
      Ho provato un po' di flags, come -v, -x, -s, -f, nv_disable=1 (tra l'altro, per evitare problemi al principio, ho impostato la scheda video di intel come primaria), cpus=1, dart=0, Slide=0, insomma, qualsiasi cosa leggessi in giro che avesse portato esiti positivi, la provavo
      Ho provato su porte sub 3.0, 2.0 e le 2.0 dietro al pc.
      Penso sia irrilevante, ma nel caso, sto usando una chiavetta da 32 gb.

      Nella firma dovrebbero esserci tutte le specifiche del mio PC, non so se debba postare altro. Nel caso scusatemi, ditemi pure cosa manca che la aggiorno.
      Spero davvero che qualcuno di voi possa aiutarmi. Ho un MacBook Air (High Sierra l'ho scaricato da qui) e ho scoperto quanto sia più affidabile usare Final Cut rispetto a quel bug chiamato Premiére Pro che ho usato per anni, e vorrei poterlo usare anche sul fisso, senza dover acquistare un iMac. Ho letto in giro che con Mojave non è supportata l'accelerazione grafica, per questo vorrei installare High Sierra.

      Grazie mille a chiunque vorrà aiutarmi!
