So, reporting back, the restore did not work, and that process was exactly the same as the one I used on my X99 board successfully. It seems as if this Z370 board can't handle APFS drives at all. I'm stumped....for now....
EDIT: I should add that I can convert a regular spinning rotational hard drive to APFS, but I cannot convert any flash based drive to APFS - a 128GB USB drive, a SATA 2.5" SSD, or a M.2 NVMe drive. It just won't do any of them..
What is bizarre about this is that back at 10.13.1 or 10.13.2, I had this system running on APFS, and took it back to HFS+ because I was NTFS for Mac on it with a Windows drive and NTFS for Mac does not support APFS drives (yet).
Weird, no problems here with apfs on the same board. No doubt you have all of the BIOS setting teed up. Is it possible that the board is defective?
