    Looks simple enough. Great guide. I personally think its better to stick with HFS+ on a Hack anyway.

    If you want to re-download installer from AppStore, you need to delete any previous downloaded HighSierra installer, also if you moved it in another directory..

    Install completed. Previously working WiFi, e.g. compatible card per guide, is not not recognized in High Sierra. Verbose boot shows IO80211 subscription failed. Per DPCIManager card is Broadcom BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n with vendor ID 14E4, and is linked to FakePCIID.kext.

    Just like to add that I used this method and as I don't need apfs.efi, the system boots up quicker as well :)

    Anyone have dual disk/dual boot systems? I have osx on one SSD with clover on it and another with windows 10 ntfs fs.
    will apfs try anything funny with the second drive or would it be smart to force high sierra to use the original filesystem and not the new one. just curious. thanks
