As we all know, Apple wishes you'd chuck those old "Cheesegraters" in the recycling heap and buy something soldered and glued together.
They have thus been making life difficult for upgraders.
High Sierra requires that SIP be ENABLED during Web Driver Install. If you need it disabled for some reason, you can do that once the drivers are installed and running.
How to tell if it is ENABLED? Open terminal and type "csrutil status" and it will tell you.
If it is disabled you can either enable it by booting to recovery or just do a PRAM reset. If someone needs the procedure for enabling/disabling from Recovery and Google has failed you I can type it up.
Before you upgrade from 10.13 build 405 to 10.13.1 you would be best served to have driver 121 installed. This will avoid the dreaded "boot loop" problem.
If you update and see a white dock, look in "Security" center to see if there is a notification that the Nvidia driver has been blocked, obviously you need to "allow" it.
I got 10.13.1 running last night. How about everyone else?

Wouldn’t you know it… Security Update 2017-001 has screwed things up all over again! No reboot seemed to be required, so thought I was safe… until I did restart this morning. It's starting to get tedious now. I think this will be the last OS update, ever! If Apple are trying to make life hard for old Mac users, it’s starting to work. Not even the .108 NVIDIA update will run as incompatible with the OS (Build 17B003). Hoping NVIDIA issues another update, to the update, soon.
11/30/2017 11:37:15 am
Yep. I don't even remember doing this update but here we are. I rebooted and now driver is incompatible. Just as I was finishing up a project! :(
11/30/2017 12:22:23 pm
I just got a system notification about a security update, clicked on details and it shows it already installed even though I have install MacOS updates and install security updates unchecked. It has never done this before. Everything is currently working fine, but now I'm scared to restart until it gets resolved. Ugh. Here we go again.
12/3/2017 09:30:33 am
That's because they ran the security update without user permission, automatically. There was some serious security flaw:
11/1/2017 10:15:03 pm
No issues here. This is the FIRST time I had the Web Driver BEFORE the OS Update!
11/2/2017 03:37:05 am
Started at version 121 of NVIDIA's web driver and all worked for me. NVIDIA driver updated immediately after to 318.104.22.168.20.107, followed by a CUDA update to 9.0.222… first time both have updated together, and all working fine!

Hello i have problème with latest version 13.13.1
11/11/2017 04:30:12 am
Same thing here.
11/2/2017 08:01:45 am
escuse, it's on 10.13.1
11/2/2017 09:18:11 am
i have found my problem :
11/2/2017 06:16:25 pm
Dave - would a PRAM reset mess up the boot argument and cause boot loop? I thought perhaps I had read that somewhere.
Yes, PRAM reset removes the variable that tells Mac to use Web Driver. With 114 Web Driver this caused boot loop.
I'd really appreciate a straight up, easy answer. I've been holding off on upgrading to High Serria. Normally I'm comfortable updating on a ".1" release.

i have resolved my problems with driver.

Can you do a flash upgrade on the AMD RX 580 to give boot screen?
11/4/2017 01:34:55 am
I have the follows:
11/4/2017 03:03:15 am
What does this mean now? Will I never be able to install this graphics card on osx?
11/6/2017 10:00:34 pm
I've read everything up to here and I'm still confused about the process of upgrading my 980TI. from Dave's comment, does it mean we can just go directly to 10.13.1 without doing the supplement update procedure in the previous article where you have to delete the older files or do you still have to do that? I haven't upgraded yet and I'm still at 10.12.4.
11/7/2017 03:34:13 am
If you've got a flashed card I've found it's really easy; just do the Apple update and if you end up in a boot loop, boot with CMD-S and delete the WebDriver from /Library/Extensions. Reboot, you'll have a Mac with a slow desktop, reinstall the latest driver and make sure to allow it in System Preferences > Security & Privacy when prompted, then reboot. All dandy.

Has anyone had any issues with the 10.13.1 (17B48) 322.214.171.124.20.107 drivers causing random logouts when you are in full screen (i.e watching a video in chrome) or moving a window quickly especially from one monitor to the next very quickly?
11/9/2017 05:57:49 am
For some strange reason on my 980 ti my 2nd 1080p monitor disappeared after updating to 10.3.1 and 3126.96.36.199.20.107 drivers. It works fine in Bootcamp. Any suggestions?
11/10/2017 09:57:03 pm
Have you noticed that the new 107 web driver no longer recognizes the original Titan card?
11/11/2017 11:49:11 am
Someone has an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4 GB under OS X 10.13.1?
Well i took a chance and did the update to 10.13.1 today. So far so good. I got the Nidia update request at first boot and the cuda update as well. No issues at all. Mac Pro Mid 2010 with a 980Ti
11/14/2017 07:36:24 am
What files do I need to delete if I’m stuck in a boot loop?
11/14/2017 08:36:12 am
Ive managed to reinstall the .107 drivers on 10.13.1, its showing as not compatible though? Im unable to select the web driver.
11/27/2017 01:58:20 am
Did you ever solve this problem (unable to select the web driver)? Have same problem and tried different suggestions but no success.
11/15/2017 01:33:41 pm
Ditto what John said.

The other way that Apple is making it hard for upgraders is that HS does not support the Apple Raid card that came in my 5,1. Yes, it's a crappy raid card, as they go, but the process of getting off of it and back to 4 separate disks is painful enough that I'll just stay on Sierra for now. A suitable replacement isn't cheap or easy, and I like my disks internal so I don't have to worry about kicking out the cable.

DO NOT INSTALL root patch!
11/30/2017 10:19:20 am
New driver for the root patch is now up.
11/30/2017 10:23:17 am
11/30/2017 11:05:23 am
Latest driver 3188.8.131.52.20.108 is for macOS 10.13.1 (17B1002). My macOS shows 10.13.1 (17B1003). - So: no driver for this till now.
11/30/2017 03:11:00 pm
11/30/2017 03:21:12 pm
Never mind. now there is a patch for the patch.
11/30/2017 08:28:06 pm
I did no manuell install of any kind, just a (seldom) restart of the Mac Pro 4.1/5.1. (Normaly I put the machine to sleep.) I recognized a remarkable long boot-time and ended up with no WebDriver and 10.13.1 (17B1003). Some days ago I read somewhere, that Apple can trigger an emergency-update!? Seems to happened for me.
12/9/2017 03:05:38 am
I installed macOS 10.13.1 (17B1003) on a 5.1 MacPro with SSD in APFS format. When trying to instal the webdriver an error message says: - “WebDriver-3184.108.40.206.20.109.pkg” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.- I re-downloaded the webdriver, this time from the NVIDIA server, but same error message. I found the NVDAStartup.kext in the System/Library/Extensions, but I cannot delete it/move it to the trash. Please let me know how to do this, and how to install the webdriver.
