So after a week of trying I have been able to install MacOS High Sierra on my new components. The parts list is as follows:
MB: MSI Z370A-Pro
CPU: Intel Core i3-8350K
RAM: 16 GB Ripjaws 2133 MHz
SSD: Silicon Power 256 GB
GPU: None

After the installation, there was no wifi as my card did not work OOB. I was able to fix that. Yay! Now I have graphics problem and the solutions on the internet suggest that I alter my config.plist file but the problem is that I do not see the EFI partition at all. I tried Clover configurator, EFI Mounter V2, V3. I even tried adding directory through terminal. There is no EFI partition on my SSD. So is there a way to fix the issue without having to do something with the EFI partition (or config.plist)?

All help will be appreciated.. Thanks! :)

You should read the rules, in particular the one regarding profiles.

I just noticed that my SSD has APFS Volume instead of Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Is this a bad thing? Did I screw up the installation?

macOS High Sierra includes a new file system APFS. If your system drive is solid state, the installer will convert from HFS+J to APFS in both a fresh install scenario and an update scenario.

"Now I have graphics problem"
What specifically is the problem ?
