So the one from vit9696 should work both ways right ?
ApfsDriverLoader.efi loads apfs.efi directly
AppleLoadImage.efi loads ApfsJumpStart.efi (can be extracted from Apple firmware image using e.g. UEFITool)
The Clover package includes ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi, AptioMemoryFix-64.efi, PartitionDxe-64.efi. Conflicts/remove: OsxAptioFixDrv*, apfs.efi
Your firmware may include a PartitionDxe, otherwise it is mandatory.
How to Convert HFS to APFS without losing Data
Your question is really off-topic, but...
The conversion done by the macOS installer is lossless.
I know this thread was originally created on Sep 26, 2017...As of today, (almost a year later), is it still advised to avoid APFS on new Hackintosh builds with High Sierra and an NVMe SSD.
Secondly, are there still issues with Hackintosh setups using the Evo 970 series SSDs? If it's off topic, would appreciate if someones points me in the right direction. Thnx
Your decision. This guide just explains how to do it, it has no recommendation on whether to do it.
I don't have any EVO 970 hardware. If it is NVMe, yes... NVMe issues still exist with non-Apple NVMe hardware.
How does one do this on a fresh install? I have the same Crucial M4 drive as you. When I boot from my USB install stick and go to Disk Utility, the only format option I have for that SSD is now APFS. The drop-down menu doesn't list anything else.
