Thanks for your answer, it gets clearer on the difficulties mac user communities are going through. Thanks to theses forums in all cases ;) I was pulling my hair off today to find a solution.
But today hurray !
I got suddenly lucky and succeeded through pure luck !! So here’s how I did it On my MacbookPro 2013 - GT750M :
0/ Download on an external drive :
- SecUpd2019-002HighSierra.dmg update taken from Apple’s download page (https://support.apple.com/downloads/2019-002HighSierra). this is the 2019-march-29 High Sierra update
- Installer MacOS_High_Sierra 10.13.6 02
- CUDA driver : cudadriver_418.163_macos.dmg
1/ Format with Installer MacOS_High_Sierra 10.13.6 02 (use a bootkey -I used DiskCreator) (if you have problems finding this High Sierra installer, write to me)
CAREFULL, you will have to go QUICK on this one : you have about 20 seconds after login
- When you arrive on the High Sierra desktop window the first time, immediatly deactivate wifi and/or connexion to internet -> immediatly go to the “preference system > App Store” and UNCHECK all updates !
(Otherwise, it will connect to Apple servers, and you’ll get the 0004 update notification !)
2/ Copy on the desk the ‘SecUpd2019-002HighSierra.dmg’ (it would not install from another drive in my case), and then launch the update.
3/ After reboot, Install FIRST the CUDA driver - I know, it’s weird to do it that way)
4/ Reconnect wifi or internet connexion and go to the github website :
5/ Open terminal and copy and paste this line :
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Benjamin-Dobell/nvidia-update/master/nvidia-update.sh) 3188.8.131.52.40.127
6/ You should have this
Hope this helps a few…
