APFS is something you can try and if it seems to cause problems, use HFS+J instead.
How long does the no-convert script take to run. I just ran it on a fresh install, and it been 15 minutes and it’s still running. What the heck is it doing?
Oh my, it’s doing a find for everything in volumes. That means it’s searchng the home dir. ok. Now i see what’s its going, and I will just do it manually.
What are you referring to? Post #1 makes no mention of any "no-convert" script.
Sorry, it's quite possible I posted in the wrong thread. Te no-convert script is mentioned on the high sierra install guild
Post #1 this thread covers everything you need to know regarding avoiding APFS conversion.
Thanks, so we need redo all this guide even update system, right sir?
No. Conversion is only when you're running the full installer.
@RehabMan : i try refresh install without APFS, but when type it i got error:

How to fix it??
Make sure EFI/Clover is prepared according to the guide:
I got it, here my EFI/Clover folder on USB Install, sir!
