This is an alternative method that can be used to install Nvidia Web Drivers if the normal way is giving you issues or there is a problem with the latest web drivers or if you are using a version of macOS where web drivers havn't yet been released for.

In this example I'll be replacing the problematic driver version 387.10.10.10.25.156 on 10.13.3 (17D47) with the older 378.10.10.10.25.103 I used on 10.13.2 (17C89)

If you want to install a different Nvidia web driver then the one I'm using in this example you will need to replace the URL in step 8 with the driver of your choosing.

See a list of web drivers: How to properly Install Nvidia Drivers on High Sierra 10.13 - Hackintosher
  1. Mount your EFI partition, navigate to
  2. Navigate to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/drivers64UEFI folder and verify whether you have OsxAptioFix3Drv-64.efi or OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi or OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi. If you are using OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi or OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi you will need to add EmuVariableUefi-64.efi under Clover Configurator -Install Drivers for acceleration.
  3. Make sure you have Lilu.kext and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext (if applicable) in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/Clover/kexts/Other
  4. Verify SIP is disabled or these steps below wont work
  5. Download webdriver.sh
  6. Make sure it's unzipped and in your downloads folder

  7. Open Terminal
  8. Type & Enter the following three lines in Terminal:
  9. Code:
    cd ~/Downloads/webdriver.sh-master/
    sudo sh webdriver -u https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/387/WebDriver-387.10.10.10.40.105.pkg
  10. Restart Hackintosh

Do I need to use the nvda_drv=1 boot flag with this? The script seemed to work according to Terminal, but I get no NVidia control panel.

Yes same here that's the only downside. If you ever need to uninstall the web drivers you have to use the script command: sudo sh webdriver.sh -r

YOSSSS!

I entered the boot flag, booted, everything looked fine. But then my login screen was blurry, couldn't do anything. Luckily it was just some bug. My livingroom TV is plugged via HDMI, I powered on the TV and then the OS loaded the login screen properly on my old BenQ screen.

Prior to this I had tried pretty much all possible solutions, each of them leaving me with a black screen/panic on acceleration. But now everything seems to be working just fine! THANK YOU once again.

IMO the best hackintoshing site on the web!

CsrActiveConfig should be 0x67 in config.plist.

I do not know what I'm doing wrong. I have set everything as you indicate but in some way SIP does not want to be disabled.

Have mounted the correct EFI volume and selected the correct config.plist on that volume?

the old webdriver is working now :) but now i still can't watch youtube @4k resolution :S

when i was diggin in the config.list i saw in Gui that the screen resolution was 1440P i have changed that to 3840x2160. This didn't helped.

btw is youtube using the intel graphix or the nvidia?

hope that the 4k youtube stuff can be fixed! :)

You need to be using shiki.kext in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other and shikigva=60 boot flag for a GTX 1080 Ti

Oh so you don't even get the option for 4k on youtube I thought it was just not playing.

This is funny, because there's nothing actually wrong with your hackintosh, it's your browser as neither Safari nor Firefox support 4k, you have to use Chrome for 4k on Youtube videos.
