Hi @RehabMan,

I Downloaded the macOS High Sierra through the app store.

I used a MBP to create the installer, and I'm using a USB 3.0 16GB stick.

Not sure if these files are what you are asking for .View attachment 364751 View attachment 364752 View attachment 364753 View attachment 364754 View attachment 364755

Your config.plist has incorrect SIP settings (in config.plist/RtVariables).
See guide plists:

@RehabMan, I'm Looking at the config.plist/RtVariables and also the guide you mentioned.

Do I change the CSRActiveConfig to 0x0 or 0x67?

Hi @RehabMan, I changed the SIP Settings to 0x67 after comparing the plist on github and reinstalled the os on the new drive after erasing it. But it still show that error.

What sort of logs should i show you if required to diagnose this problem?

You will need to explain exactly what you're doing and attach problem reporting files.

I am installing Mojave on the same drive with existing Windows 10 and Linux distributions on it. Are there any special considerations I should take in following the steps laid out by @RehabMan ?

I want to make sure my Windows and Linux installations don't get trapped in an APFS container or anything like that.

APFS container goes to a new partition.
