However, it was brought to my attention that during my initial MultiBeast setup, I used the default system definition (iMac14,2) and my build is...

    [Solved] Updated system definition only boots in safemode - how to revert to backup config.plist

    In trying to upgrade my El Capitan system to High Sierra, I updated the system definition from Mac Pro (early 2008) to Mac Pro (mid 2010) in Multibeast.
