I had the same problem as described by @Priyank.410

The install went perfectly but once I tried to Boot using Clover v2.4_r4411 my new High Sierra installed SSD was not showing in the Clover GUI boot options.

I found the solution to MY problem was found described in this video at 5:17


In short you need to:
  1. Find the High Sierra Installer
  2. Show its Package Contents
  3. Navigate to Contents > SharedSupport
  4. Mount BaseSystem.dmg
  5. In the mounted DMG, Navigate to usr > standalone > i386
  6. Copy the file apfs.efi to your desktop
  7. Install Clover again
  8. After the install is successful, find the mounted EFI partition
  9. Copy the apfs.efi to BOTH /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI AND /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64 (Copy that file to BOTH directories or Clover wont see an APFS formatted drive!)
When I restarted my machine HP Z800, I could see the High Sierra SSD in the Clover and proceed with my installs or boot process normally.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Bro, this worked like a charm for me !

I have a similar issue on a legacy clover 4920 and an installed mojave (mutli boot with sierra system) , where multibeast installed clover ok on ssd but boot will not display the Mojave APFS (only the Sierra's) , UNLESS , I plug in the USB installer. In which case either booting from (either SSD) or the USB, displays the Mojave boot just fine.... weirdest.

Thanks! Could you refer me to a guide/tool to achieve this? I assume multicast is off the menu...
