I don't already have high sierra installed. I'm on a Mac that is not supported (late 2009 mini). I'm trying to create my install drive for a new build, and I'm following a year-old vanilla guide for hardware that is very much like mine. I am to the part about copying the apfs.efi and I am confused.
I am installing production 10.13.5. I am told the apfs.efi I am to copy is from 10.13.5 beta. In clover configurator I was told to select apfs.efi, but in the current version there isn't such a thing, but there is a ApfsDriverLoader, and I checked that, and it's now in my drivers64UEFI folder.
Do I still need to download apfs.efi and put it in my drivers64UEFI folder? Does this accomplish anything other than making booting less verbose? Is it required?
I am installing on a system that will have an SSD as the boot drive, which I understand will be APFS.
ETA: I extracted apfs.efi from the 10.13.5 installer, patched it, verified that my MD5 is the same as the one real3x posted a couple pages ago, and put it in my drivers64UEFI folder. So, I now have both apfs.efi and ApfsDriverLoader.efi there. Is that correct?
With ApfsDriverLoader.efi, you do not need apfs.efi anymore. That is why the latest Clover replaced apfs with ApfsDriverLoader. Even more awesome, AfpsDriverLoader will give you the equivalent of a patched apfs.efi that does not have those annoying messages.
