so for updting to 10.14.3 i need to copy ApfsDriverLoader-64.efI?????where is the link
It’s available in the latest clover builds as an option in drivers64EFI. Also most people are using aptiomemoryfix instead is aptiodriver64(1,2,3)fix.
So download the latest clover and remove apfsEFI and aptiofixdriver then run the new clover and use “customize” tab to choose new drivers.

You don't need apfs.efi if you use ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi.

Of course there is one drawback, booting is a bit slower.
I can live with a 1 second slower boot to save the hassle of forever having to manually update apfs.efi.

How does this impact BIOS (non UEFI) motherboards? Installing ‘Legacy’ Clover (from this site) does not put the ApfsDriverLoader file out there and the one on GitHub throws error messages when in place. I am assuming we still need the APFS.efi file or a loader - just not sure where to get it (loader vs copy of APFS.efi) from.

For Legacy builds I think this goes in the Drivers64 folder of clover? IF you also have Drivers64UEFI folder place it there too.
