10.13.3 Update Quick Notes:

Hackintosh 10.13.3 Install Overview

This update is not automatic, when the computer reboots after installing in the app store you will have to select: Install macOS from “drive_name” to complete the update in Clover EFI Bootloader. I actually had to select Install macOS From… twice in Clover EFI Bootloader as the first time it rebooted before completion, while the second time it finished the install. For Ryzen users a fresh install of 10.13.3 is required as the update feature does not work for non-Intel processors. If you end of getting the macOS cannot be installed error. See the updated [Guide] macOS could not be installed

Hackintosh Nvidia 10.13.3 Web Drivers

Nvidia Web Drivers have released, but there is currently an issue where the driver is causing lag for those that upgrade for it so if you have an Nvidia graphics card I recommend that you hold off on 10.13.3, until this problem is resolved or alteratively you can get 10.13.2 Web Drivers working quite easily in 10.13.3 see: https://hackintosher.com/forums/thread/nvidia-web-drivers-make-older-version-work-in-high-sierra.21/

I used this method to install 10.13.2 web drivers on 10.13.3:

Update Kexts

I recommend updating all your kexts especially Lilu.kext to the latest version:

Apple File System Users

Those already using an HFS+ drive don’t need to worry about theirs being converted to APFS on update.

if you have an APFS formatted drive, make sure you are using the latest version of apfs.efi unzip the download below and stick it in EFI/Clover/Drivers64UEFI/

Note:

If you are updating from a version of macOS earlier than High Sierra 10.13.0 follow one of these guides before updating to 10.13.3:

For those who are using the MacPro6,1, iMac15,1, iMac17,1 or iMac18,x system definitions may need to re-apply the black screen fix. Update all kexts.

I was able to downgrade the drivers to WebDriver-387.10.10.10.25.103 and that fixed the lag.

I used: https://github.com/vulgo/webdriver.sh
Then:
sudo webdriver -cu https://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/378/WebDriver-378.10.10.10.25.103.pkg
sudo webdriver -m

I used Homebrew to install the webdriver, I guess you could also just run the script.

I am able to use 10.13 High Sierra on my old laptop perfectly. Should I upgrade or more I want to reinstall the same on another drive. Should I use my old Image for 10.13 or the new image(I have downloaded from apple store) 10.13.3??
