Was there a new EFI folder uploaded? Seem like it is still the same as yesterday. I'm not able to get past the reboot on the plus signs.

Thank you!

Yes there was an upload of the EFI folder yesterday at 02:00 a.m. CEST and another upload this morning at 11:00 a.m. CEST that apart from other problems in the config.plist also solved the problem of not passing the plus signs when rebooting via the installer/updater on my rig. This problem should be solved now. At least on my rig the installer/updater now works flawless. I checked the clean install of 10.13 PB3 and DP4, as well as the upgrade from 10.12 and 10.13 PB2 and DP3. The problem of not passing the plus signs was a missing KernelToPatch entry which for now is still uncommented (last KernelToPatch entry from up).

Cheers,

What can I do? It perfectly works on my rig! Did you check the BIOS settings? Note also that you have a different mobo.. Maybe that makes the difference? Any additional config.plist entries, kexts, amls, etc.?

Thanks for you help. Still troubleshooting on my end. I'll post findings as it might be of help to others as well. Could you share the old EFI folder for DP3? Seems I lost it, and can't compare them. I'm unable to boot to DP3, since I'm using your newer one.

Thank you!
