Download was very fast (UK). Installation was a bit funny. Restarted the system, got to Clover, boot macOS install, bar moves along, but then sits there for a few mins and restarts.
Try again, this time sits there for a while. Thinking, hmmm. So manually restart system. Boots to Clover, my original macOS partition is gone! So, now I'M thinking I've got no choice but to let it try the installer.
Left it for about 10mins, and it worked! Lessons learned: be patient!
Total time, including the download, can't have been more than 30mins. Great guide as ever, tony!

Well. I must say. Direct upgrade with Clover is very easy with 10.13.

Does someone with Intel processor and nVidia GTX card (all using clover on previous sierra installation) upgraded to high sierra? My build is working perfectly so I don't wanna screw up something. Of course I will do a clone on other disk anyway, but I am just asking if it's worth trying it.

I also know there isn't driver for nvidia on 10.13, but I am just asking :headbang:
Yes, through all the betas and most recently the GM released today. I'm on a pascal GPU so no web drivers yet. I upgraded my backup Sierra install, not my day-to-day. I'm waiting for web drivers (..aaaand maybe 10.13.1) before I do that. Worth trying it? Can't answer that for you. apfs is too new really to understand the tradeoffs, and developer packages (homebrew etc) are almost surely in a state of flux. It's fun to play with for now. I'm running the GM as I type this and all the basics except web drivers are working great.

You can’t update from one OS to another; that’s an upgrade. That’s why you don’t see anything for High Sierra while in a previous OS’s App Store update screen. You need to click on the High Sierra link on the main page of the App Store.

Update went perfect on my H77N-WIFI. Will update my Z/H77N-WIFI for Audio but everything seems to be up and running here.
