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?

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.

How do I transition from a G4560 to an i5-7600K?

Hello Reddit!

I'm currently running an almost fully working Hackintosh, and I'm trying to figure out how I would, software-wise, make the switch to an i5 from my Pentium. What do I need to change to make it bootable? I no longer have access to another mac, so it's not an option for me to just reinstall.

Any help is appreciated, as always. :)

Just a quick question, anyone else having any issues with this update? I’ve been running a solid build for a very long time but ever since meltdown security issue, I stopped upgrading. I decided to upgrade last night and everything is running fine and NVIDIA web driver works fine too. My issue: stutter despite low cpu and GPU usage. Chrome runs very sluggish and stops working every now and then. The whole build feels extremely slow compared to before where it used to be super snappy. Kodi runs slower than my fire tv lol.

Some information: I use clover, 4770K 1080 Ti SLI and 32GB DDR 3 (2800mhz). Everything works.

Hovering mouse over things does nothing.

Don't know if anyone else is having this issue, but when I hover my mouse over something like over the YouTube player on a video, you would expect the play button and volume ui to appear. Also, on drop down menus on MacOS, they should be highlighted when you hover your mouse over them. But mine does nothing. I have to hold down the right mouse button and then hovering over things kinda works. This also happens in FPS games where I cant look around unless i'm holding down the left mouse button. I know it is not the mouse because I have tried other mice and still the same thing. Does anyone know what this issue is and if there is any fixes for it? Thanks

PSA: Clover updates are not harmless

I recently had to fiddle with the BIOS a bit regarding an unrelated issue, and my BIOS menu got stuck because there were too many boot entries. I managed to remove the entries via EFI shell, but that was a pain in the ass, so I'd rather not do it again. The boot entries were caused by the old clover issue of making a new boot entry every boot cycle.

I already tried hiding /EFI/Boot/Clover and the partition UUID from the clover GUI, to no avail (didn't even disappear from GUI). I decided that maybe I could fix by updating clover. I downloaded the latest clover, made a dd backup of my old partition, and installed the new clover. Kexts, ACPI, and info.plist were not even removed by the installation process.

After the first reboot cycle, no issues occurred, however, the next day I suddenly got a kernel panic related to AppleALC. The panic itself was related to a page fault.

I managed to solve this issue by booting into my old install from clover on my install USB, and dd'ing my backup back.

Any explanations are more than welcome, as are solutions to the boot entry problem.

tl;dr I updated clover and got a kernel panic

Hackintosh with NZXT Kraken X52?


I am going to be upgrading my system from a Pentium G4560 and the Intel Stock cooler, to an i5 and NZXT Kraken X52... but how would pump control and stuff work? Obviously NZXT CAM isn't available for Mac... If I'm booting both Windows and macOS, can I just change the settings in Windows, and they still apply in macOS? Will the pump and/or fans run at full speed?

Why the hate on High Sierra?

I'm legitimately wondering why the general consensus here seems to be that High Sierra is worse than Sierra. Aside from a slightly lower Cinebench score, I've had amazingly rock-solid performance (aside from sleep) on my build that surpasses Sierra in some ways. Are there under-the-hood changes that warrant HS as being worse? The OS has been completely stable for me.

Consistent boot with/without slide=0?

I have a 5820K/980 Ti/X99 Deluxe Hackintosh going. It's been up for a couple days of real use, and it's really great. It feels like the Mac mini I had when I was a kid, but it never slows down, and chews through everything I can throw at it. I love it to death.

I just run in to the issue often where depending on the reset, I boot or error with the same flags - dart=0, npci=0x2000, slide=0, and -v. All of the other flags work regardless, but I've both errored out and had to retry AND successfully booted with or without slide=0. It's totally fine, I'm just wondering if there's any way to not have to baby this computer through the boot process. Everything else has been roses, but I wish I could leave it alone to do it's thing while I go get a muffin in the morning, instead of having to keep an eye on it.

I'm booting 12.13.3, and my smbios is the very vanilla iMac14,2.
