    Agreed. The last thing I ever want to see is a 'glitch' during an install. It's usually all downhill from there... =)

    Glad you figured this out. Why did you Disable SIPS in the the first place? And, does enabling SIP, even if it fixes your issue described here, leave the other thing you needed to do to disable SIPS in a conundrum?

    I need to disable SIP occasionally for some programs to work properly. One is WinClone. It's easy to disable SIP do what you need to do and then re-enable SIP. I've heard that there is no reason to have SIP enabled and that it won't cause any problems if you leave it disabled. But I found that's not the case.

    The real thing is the Package NVIDIA 10.13 HS haves a flag for the SIP in the preinstall script
    see this is the same message in the Popup

    Right, it very clearly looks like the installer needs SIP enabled for it to work correctly. Gatekeeper appears to do something to the binaries to make them allowed to be loaded when you hit "Allow" in the Security preferences. If SIP is disabled, that step is done done by the OS, and thus the driver might not load properly.

    I don't think you need to have SIP enabled after you've successfully installed the driver, it should be fine to go back to disabling whatever parts of SIP you need to.
