Off-topic.Hello all at tonymacx86 !!!
Just to ask for some help.
I have started the update process from Sierra to High Sierra.
I have done all the mentioned steps (updated clover, kexts, the terminal process)
and everything was made with careful and following the instructions.
When my computer restarts and I select from the "install macOS" option in clover,
it starts very well, with a big apple in the center of the screen and the white little bar
under it, showing the process status.
My problem is that, when it has gone through about 50% the process appears to stop, and,
then, this white "spinner" appears under the white bar and start to circle around (just
like waiting for something) until the installation process enters in a "Bear Hug" and
never ends !!!!!!
By the way, let me tell you that the computer NEVER reboots several times as mentioned
in the instructions for installing High Sierra.
So, everytime, I have being forced to cancel the update process and rebooting with my
original Sierra install.
PLEASE, any ideas on how to solve this ?????? Thank in advance !!!
Running APFS on my BRIX with TRIM patch enabled. No problems with slow boot. SSD is Samsung 850 EVO (mSATA).At this moment with a Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120Gb and clover trim patch working without issues. However, I keep the backup copy in HFS+... I'm not sure if I'll have any problems or not in the future.
Correct.USB dock/enclosure for your SSD, it will not convert it to APFS (doesn't see it as a SSD?).
Wrong.Unfortunately, Apple has removed the -volume option in the High Sierra command line install so using the suggested command line method to update won't work if you want to target an external drive and updating the main drive won't work because of other partitions on it.

I have a Crucial MX300 750GB SSD. I triple boot Win10, 10.11 & 10.12.Noticed on one of my systems (Crucial M4 SSD) that I had to disable the TRIM patch. With TRIM, getting slow boots, I think fsck was running each time, so slow that battery status failed (due to battery code starting too soon, before the system was ready, was able to fix that by changing "FirstPollDelay" from 4000 to 16000, but that problem went away when I disabled TRIM). For now, running that system withou the TRIM patch.
