Ok so you can boot to High Sierra if you boot clover from the USB stick, then select your High Sierra build from the SSD on the clover boot screen.Hey am having the same problem, after installing High Sierra from a USB drive.
1. Clean install via CLOVER, 10.13 AFPS. I can boot High Sierra via USB drive
2. Clover Configurator will not show EFI mount for my SSD High Sierra.
I followed your instructions in terminal. I'm stuck here ->
$ diskutil mount /dev/disk0s1
which will create a mount point in the default path, which on a booted High Sierra is /Volumes. So now you should have a way to read and write to the EFI using /Volumes/EFI (or something like that). Finally copy the file
$ cp /usr/standalone/i386/apfs.ef /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI
or something like that.
in my case my Hackintosh HD is /dev/disk7s1
After mounting it tells me its mounted. I still do not see the hardrive displayed in CloverConfigurator. I do not know how to go about copying the afps.efi to the driver64UEFI folder. I tried your command in terminal but Clover Configurator still dosen't display EFI partition for my hackintosh HD.
PLS HELP ! many thanks!
You say you can't mount the High Sierra SSD's EFI partition in Clover Configurator but you're not clear why you need to mount the EFI partition. What problem are you trying to fix? But I dig you want to be able to mount it. CC should be able to mount it.
Do you think the issue is, you need top copy apfs.efi to your High Sierra's EFI partition? Only clover needs apfs.efi in /EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI. macOS does not need it, it has it in /usr/standalone/i386.
Maybe you're saying, you can boot clover from the stick, but you can't boot clover from the SSD and select High Sierra. So you're trying to copy the apfs.efi to the EFI partition on the SSD.
If that's the case, then you need to boot into High Sierra, open Terminal.app, and do
$ diskutil list
that will identify the full name of the EFI partition on the High Sierra SSD. You say it's /dev/disk7s1, so then you do
$ diskutil mount /dev/disk7s1
and you should see "Volume EFI on /dev/disk7s1 mounted". then
$ cp /usr/standalone/i386/apfs.efi /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI
(double check the paths before you copy, that's off the top of my head)
You might need to precede cp with sudo but I wouldn't think you'd need to do that - 'sudo cp ...' and provide your password.
