I was using Sierra and today, I updated to High Sierra cause I thought 1 yr would be enough for waiting to get recent updates from Nvidia in order to use GTX1060 on High Sierra. But after I got High Sierra, Im not able to boot my computer with 1060 but the original GPU. It seems Web Driver 387.10.10.15.15.108 is available but not downloadable... Any idea what to do?

Check security & preferences. Enable all. Make sure Gatekeeper is enabled and SIP enabled.

May need to remote into machine to confirm.

Try

1) Disable SIP

2) Open terminal and enter
Code:
bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Benjamin-Dobell/nvidia-update/master/nvidia-update.sh) 378.10.10.10.25.106

Not possible since Nvidia does not support the newest High Sierra update

Not possible of what?

This procedure can be used in any High Sierra version.
You are not understanding. Everytime Apple update MacOS, Nvidia need to update their MacOS driver or otherwise, I can not use gtx 1060. The recent updates from Nvidia is not available at this point.

Are you in High Sierra 10.13.6 final version ? if you are then h9826790 is correct.

High Sierra 10.13.X NVIDIA Web Drivers are available for every single build.
Mojave 10.14.X NVIDIA Web Drivers are NOT yet available.

IF you are on HIGH SIERRA 10.13.6, there are several driver options including the rollback script provided.

Not true. Every time Apple update MacOS, Nvidia need to update their drivers too. This is not the first time.

Yes but Nvidia need to update drivers to support the final version.

Scroll down to the heading SOFTWARE and post a screenshot of that "System Software Overview" info.

TBH, I understand the whole situation much much better than you do. And I've already told you the possible fix. It's your choice to keep arguing but try nothing.

What are you talking about, 10.13.6 is out for a long time, and there are web drivers for 10.13.6

Every security update require updates from Nvidia in order to use GTX 1060.

Please post the two screenshots requested above:
Click the APPLE logo in the upper left > About This Mac > System Report > Hardware Info and post a screenshot of that "Hardware Overview" info.
Scroll down to the heading SOFTWARE and post a screenshot of that "System Software Overview" info.

17G2307 is a SUPPLEMENTAL UPDATE for 2018 MacBookPro's ONLY.
There is NO REASON any Mac Pro should have installed this update unless you forced it.

Are you on a hacked machine that IDENTIFIES as a Mac Pro 2010, or you on an actual 2010 Mac Pro?

You should maybe do a complete re-install to a spare drive . . . and perhaps . . take notice of what these talented people who have real experience are suggesting in order to try and help you.

Nvidia pulled the 108 file due to installation problems--that is why the file is no longer available. 105 has problems too, as you've seen. The known fix is 106, which has worked for other people and which was given to you by h9826790 in post #5.

Every security update require updates from Nvidia in order to use GTX 1060.
It is not helpful to repeat that over and over. Everyone here responding to you already knows this very intimately, have known this for years, and have personally experienced it themselves quite often.
