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)

      Patched OSInstaller.framework to allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR HFS+ partition.
       
      To use those patched files you must follow HowTo to create an USB installer. You can't just run the app downloaded from Mac App Store.
      The patch is made base on 落下爱@pcbeta 10.10.x MBR patch method, and more patch for 10.14 HFS Firmware check by crazybirdy.
       
      What is this patched OSInstaller doing?
      1. Patch the MBR check, allow macOS 10.14 installation on MBR partition.
      2. Patch the Firmware check, bypass the error of "An error occurred while verifying firmware".
      3. Patch to stop auto-convert to APFS , "ConvertToAPFS=false" is no longer worked with 10.14.
      4. This patched MBR OSInstaller will never convert to APFS, and will always install as HFS+ partition.
      5. This patched MBR OSInstaller method works with both MBR HFS+ and GPT HFS+ partition (GPT+recovery).
      No longer need to set new SMbiosversion, FirmwareFeatures, and FirmwareFeaturesMask with this MBR-patch.
       
      What's the difference between createinstallmedia method, MBR-Manual-Method, and MBR-Automatic-Method?
      As the following....
      1. createinstallmedia method,
          needs stage 1, stage 2 installation process, which is worked with GUID partition only, always convert to APFS format.
      2. MBR-Manual-Method (same as 10.12),
          install via stage 2 manually, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format.
          We can manually format as MBR or GPT, HFS+ or APFS on installation screen like as 10.12.
          We can manually select MBR HFS+ partition to install 10.13 and 10.14 on installation screen now.
          Needn't to update the MBR-Manual-Method files, it will still work on 10.13, and 10.14 future versions, I think so.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition only, but can't be installed as update from previous version.
      3. MBR-Automatic-Method (new for 10.13+),
          install via stage 2 automatically, which is worked with both MBR and GUID, HFS+ and APFS, will never convert the partition format.
          It can be installed as Fresh installation on formated blank partition, and can be installed as update from previous version.

      How to make 10.14 installer for MBR (MBR-Manual-Method)?
      Just use MBR-EasyInstallerMaker to make installer, it works with both MBR and GPT.
      Read HowTo inside the dmg first, same as 10.12.
      Read HowTo Q/A Q5. How to patch to work with CPU SSE4.1 only for Mojave?

      And, need a SMBIOS supported with /System/Library/CoreServices/PlatformSupport.plist.
       

       

       
      Q6. How to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com, instead of App Store?
      A6. Some people download installer app from App Store, and get only 18 MB size, not the complete installer app (5.68 GB). You should boot to 10.12, or 10.13 to download it again from App Store, or use script Q6-DownloadFullApp/installScript_1014fullapp to download the full installer app via swscan.apple.com.

      Making a High Sierra USB Installer Entirely From Scratch in Windows
      This is a proof of concept tutorial, to show it's possible to create a vanilla High Sierra installer, entirely from scratch, in Windows (even without App Store downloaded "Install macOS High Sierra.app" from a real Mac ).  @PikeRAlpha's link to Apple's Software Catalog provides us with all the URLs necessary to download the needed files directly from Apple instead of some dubious source from the internet...
       

      Pre-Requisites
      8GB or larger USB drive Boot Disk Utility v2.1.2017rev021b from @CVAD TransMac (free 15 day trial) Paragon Hard Disk Manager Free Download Installer Files Directly from Apple
      1)  Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist (Hint - search page for "InstallESD" to find its URL and others nearby)

      to a folder named "SharedSupport" on your Windows NTFS drive.  A browser download manager (eg Chrono for Chrome, dTA for FireFox) is handy since InstallESD is >4GB ---> allows you to pause/resume interrupted download...

      2)  Rename InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg
      3)  Edit InstallInfo.plist with WordPad/text editor to remove the chunklistURL and chunklistid keys for InstallESD, and renaming it from InstallESDDmg.pkg to InstallESD.dmg (example of edited file attached to this post)...
      Note:  You can verify the SHA1 checksum of your InstallESD.dmg and BaseSystem.dmg with the correct ones at this website.
      Boot Disk Utility to format the Installer USB and Restore OS X Base System HFS partition
      1.  Format USB with BDU & latest Clover ---> creates boot files in CLOVER partition + second FAT partition
      2.  Extract 4.hfs from \SharedSupport\BaseSystem.dmg with BDU --> save to it's local folder
      3.  Restore 4.hfs to USB second partition with BDU --->  2nd partition becomes bootable "OS X Base System"
      Paragon Hard Disk Manager to extend HFS Partition to its Full Extent
      Open Paragon Partition Manager Free and resize the second partition of the USB drive to the full size allowed.  Don't forget to apply the changes at the end...
      Transmac to Copy "SharedSupport" folder to OS X Base System
      1.  Open the TransMac program and navigate to the HFS+ Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app/Contents folder.  Right click anywhere in the empty space on the RHS pane and select "Copy Here"...
      2.  In the next stage, select the "SharedSupport" folder we created above as the "Files and Folders to be copied to the Mac Volume"...
      Clover Settings
      Clover configuration is required now.  The default config.plist (in the Clover FAT32 partition of the USB) maybe sufficient to boot your machine if you’re lucky.  If not, look at the Clover Wiki, Clover Instructions and Clover Configuration Thread for pointers and edit /EFI/Clover/config.plist accordingly with Wordpad or Notepad.
      The location of the important configuration files for Clover are summarized below
      config.plist--->EFI/CLOVER folder DSDT.aml with or without SSDT.aml--->EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched (don't need one if your DSDT is auto patched by Clover in config.plist) Kexts eg FakeSMC, NullCPUPowerManagement --->EFI/CLOVER/kexts/<osx version> or /Other. NB BootDiskUtility by default already has FakeSMC.kext installed here.  You may need to add VoodooPS2Controller for your laptop keyboard/trackpad to work. If UEFI booting, you will most likely need one of the OsxAptioFixDrv-64 drivers copied from /EFI/CLOVER/drivers-off/drivers64UEFI to /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. If you want to use the installer to run High Sierra in Windows on VMware, you can follow my guide to set up the Virtual Machine and replace Clover's default config with EFI_Clover for VMware (which is compatible to run in VMware).  In the screenshots below, I have attached the USB Installer (in this case PhysicalDrive7) to my macOS Virtual Machine.  Reboot the system to the USB installer to install High Sierra ...
      What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?
      Not a problem, as long as we get "OS X Base System" bootable, we can launch terminal from the Utilities Menu to copy the SharedSupport folder over to the Installer app.  In essence, we will build the full installer app = 5GB+ on the target HD eg "Macintosh HD", by copying both the "small" installer app = 15MB (on "OS X Base System") and the SharedSupport folder from the NTFS volume (mounted in this example on /Volumes/DATA)...
      -bash-3.2# cd / -bash-3.2# cp -R Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/ -bash-3.2# cp -R /Volumes/DATA/SharedSupport /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/  
      ...then start installation with the startosinstall utility...
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD --converttoapfs NO --applicationpath /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app  
      The above steps can be automated with the attached "startosinstall.command" script, which will assemble "Install macOS High Sierra.app" on "Macintosh HD" and launch the startosinstall utility targeting the "Macintosh HD" volume.  Copy/download to "Macintosh HD", then run in terminal (after attaching DATA USB with /Shared Support folder)...
      cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD" chmod +x startosinstall.command ./startosinstall.command Updated Download Links for macOS Mojave 10.14.3_18D109
      Browse Apple's Regular Software Catalog and find the URLs to download the following 6 installer files...
      BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist  
      Note: In Mojave, Apple has removed the --converttoapfs NO and --applicationpath arguments from the startosinstall utility....
       
      eg to use startosinstall for the above section "What happens if we don't have access to TransMac or Paragon Hard Disk Manager?", the syntax is now
      -bash-3.2# /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD/Install\ macOS\ Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD  
      This basically means that for Mojave, the default installation will always convert the target volume to the apfs file system.
