Hi everyone

I'm struggling on updating my Hackintosh (followed this build: https://hackintosher.com/builds/gigabyte-z370-aorus-gaming-7-hackintosh-build-guide/) from 10.13.2 to 10.13.6

I downloaded the 10.13.6 Combo update. I updated Clover to the newest version (4920) and updated all drivers and kexts. I can start the update and the system then reboots. On Clover Bootloader I choose "Boot OS X Install from Boot OSX". Then the installation starts with saying "16 minutes remaining". But after about 5 minutes. The loading bar and the apple logo disappear and I see my desktop. When I check the version I'm still on 10.13.2.

Any help is appreciated.

I was able to solve the problem.

I use Softraid to manage all my internal harddrives and RAID setups. Apparently, Apple security people don't like Non-Apple volumes anymore so they refuse the update on such drives. You can read more about it in this support thread from Softraid: https://www.softraid.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=844.
