Alternative method to installing Nvidia Web Drivers in High Sierra

Ever since the Nvidia Web Drivers have come out for High Sierra 10.13.3 (17D47) they’ve been causing all sorts of issues on top of them already being tricky to install for beginners.

Even after getting the Nvidia Web Drivers working  on 10.13.3 everything is going to be super slow and laggy so I’m posting this to aware you all that there is another and simplier method that can be used to get Nvidia Web Drivers working.

Using this alternative method we can install the Web Drivers through Terminal using a script provided by Vulgo

This script is good for installing previous web driver in cases where web drivers haven’t yet been released for a new version of macOS and in cases where the current web driver is problematic as is the case with 10.13.3.

This is the method I used to install Nvidia web drivers in macOS High Sierra 10.13.3. It only takes 3 lines in Terminal to perform. Just make sure you have NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext & Lilu.kext in EFI/Clover/kexts/Other also unlike the Nvidia High Sierra Guide SIP needs to be disabled during the install to work.

The only downside to this method is that you get no Nvidia Control Panel as you would with a normal install, so if you ever need to uninstall the drivers you will have to use the proper script command. You can read more about Vulgo’s script and commands here:

this is great news!
do the drivers work as well as they do in 10.13.2?


I switched from Nvidea to AMD because of those drivers. My Radeon RX 580 works flawlessly. 🙂
