10.13.4 hanging at 75% during update SOLVED (NVIDIA gfx)

Everything went smooth, the OS rebooted a few times, and then it hung up on the Mac logo with the progress bar at 50% or so. Clicking the 'return' key I could hear the OS make a error noise, so I figured it was a graphics driver problem.

I removed my card (1050ti) and booted using the mobo HDMI (also Nvida). It booted 100% fine. I updated the NVIDIA graphics to the latest version and restarted, still using the mobo and it was ok. I then installed the gfx card and booted, everything worked like a charm!

Best Asus Rog Strix z370-F Gaming WiFi/Bluetooth solution

Hey guys! I’m anxiously awaiting the start of my Hackintosh build. So far the components I have are as follows:

  • GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming
  • i7 8700K
  • NZXT s340 Elite Black
  • Samsung 960 Evo 500GB M.2
  • Kraken x62 AIO
  • Dell S2716DG

I am looking to get the Asus Rog Strix Z370-F Gaming Mobo as I’m going for a sort of sleek black look with probably white lighing. I was just wondering what the best solution is for wifi and Bluetooth on this board? Or if there is another board you’d recommend over it. I really love the look of this board though so if there is a solid Bluetooth and wifi work around for it I’d prefer to stick with it. I have seen several posts about the Z-370-E gaming and maybe a couple about this board but I am looking for the cleanest and absolute best solution to get wifi/Bluetooth running on this board. I will be running Mac OS and a Windows Virtual Machine. If you have any other tips or suggestions for my build, let me know! I’d love to hear them! Ps. I’m in Canada. Thanks guys!

PSA: You may have to toggle your Nvidia drivers off then on again after upgrading to 10.13.4

I've noticed this come up in a few threads so I thought I'd make a post.

Background: I was on 10.13.3 and my nVidia drivers (version ending in 106) were working fine using the nvidia update script.

The Problem: I upgraded to 10.13.4, patched my nvidia drivers using the nvidia update script, rebooted, but could clearly tell that MacOS was still using the system graphics driver. However the nVidia control panel showed the nVidia web driver as selected.

The Fix: I used the control panel to select the system graphics driver, rebooted, then selected the nVidia web driver and rebooted again and everything works perfectly.

Hopefully this helps some folks who are running into the same issue.

Anyone having issues with Razer Synapses and High Sierra?

I seem to have one last thing that I am having trouble with post the High Sierra Upgrade. My mouse and Keyboard become unresponsive it seems when Razer Synapses launches on boot. If I immediately open the Razer Synapses software after the boot it shows no devices connected. However in the menu bar it shows that it has found the devices and a simple relaunch of the app seems to work. During the unresponsive period I even tried using non Razer mouse and keyboard but those were also unresponsive as well. Any advice or guidance would be much appreciated. I will try and add a video when it occurs again.

Nvidia drivers not loading with "nvidia-update" and 10.13.4?

Hey everyone.

Geforce 1060, iMac 17.1 SMBIOS, 10.13.4, Clover 4411.

I'm encountering the dreaded display lag that plenty of people are getting with Nvidia's official, recent drivers. I figured I'd give nvidia-update a try and use the drivers I had on 10.13.2.

I run the script, install goes smoothly, no issue. I reboot and...nada. I can log into MacOS no problem, Nvidia Driver Preferences is loaded in the taskbar, tells me the drivers are enabled. Everything seems to be installed perfectly, and yet there's clearly no GPU acceleration—low rez, artifacts, RAM stuck at 7mb in System Report, etc—as if the driver wasn't really loaded at all. I've checked in Terminal and all my kexts appear to be loading fine.

I tried with 378. and .104. No go. GPU acceleration works fine with the official drivers (387. using the update script, but yeah, the lag is annoying to say the least.

Kexts, all freshly updated and using the most recent versions possible:

  • FakeSMC
  • Lilu
  • AppleALC
  • NvidiaGraphicsFixup
  • Shiki

Anyone got a magical solution?

NVIDIA Web Drivers on MacBookPro11,3?

I know this isn't a hackintosh specific question, but I feel this is the most knowledgeable area in regards to NVIDIA Web Drivers. I've installed them and switched between the OS X default and the NVIDIA drivers and under normal use I don't see any battery differences. Are there any differences between the drivers?

My 11,3 has a GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB and a Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB

MacOS 10.13.4 upgrade mouse lagging/stuttering

I've Asus Strix z370g-gaming wifi, i7 8700k, 64GB ram, Sapphire AMD RX Vega 56. The build was based on the pastry chef's from: It was working fine (more or less, with GPU fans spinning full power all the time) until I have upgraded it to 10.13.4 (from 10.13.3) hoping to get these fans working in normal way.

The fans are spining the same way, but since the upgrade I have my Magic Mouse stuttering or lagging constantly every few seconds it stops for a 0.5 seconds or less and then just continues. Everything else, animations, system is butter smooth.

I've tested USB mouse and it does the same thing, so it's not bluetooth issue. I've tried installing combo update, but it didn't change anything.

Any clues how to fix that?

Artifacting login screen on High Sierra with R9 280

Hello. I previously was having artifacting issues everywhere with my 660ti. So I went ahead and bought a R9 280 to try and solve this issue. So far it seems to have worked! I no longer have artifacting once I am logged into my account and its completely usable. However immediately after reboot and before I login to my account the login screen is completely artifacting, which is really annoying. Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve it? Here is a link to imgur

USB Soundbar sometimes has an audio breakdown

Running 10.13.4; sometimes my USB Soundbar will be playing music and slowly start to static out. Switching audio channels (my monitor is listed as an audio channel but doesn't have speakers) will fix it. I haven't ever had this issue before, so I'm leading to believe it's a bug with 10.13.4 and a kext I use.

I use IntelGraphicsFixup, Lilu, NvidiaGraphicsFixup, Shiki, USBInjectAll, and XHCI-200-series-injector. I'm thinking it's an issue with the USBInjectAll/XHCI-200 because of this being a USB soundbar and not needing drivers. I've never had this issue happen before, and I don't use AppleALC or anything of the sort.

System built around eGPU?

As the title says. Ive used macs for 20 years and will continue too, however i would also like to have some umph on occasion for gaming and VR.

The new Nuc with the Vega got me thinking about building a system around a eGPU, which OS X now adds native support, instead of it being an addition. My thinking was you could save some money(besides the eGPU of course).

The easy thing to do, which i will likely do, is wait for the new mini and hope it has TB3. Until then i thought it might be worth discussing. Im terrible at building PCs, which is also why im asking.

Should I sell my existing computer to build a hackintosh?

So I have a secondary pc that I use as a downstairs gaming pc/ media box. I get little use from it and want to build a hackintosh, but many of its parts are seem to not be compatible with mac os, but some parts are. Would it be best for me to sell the whole computer and just buy new parts from scratch? Here is the part list
