    downloading it right now, almost done, i had PB7 already installed and i erased that drive yesterday
    i could it easily just upgrade that installation now i have to do a full clean install
    well in a way is better like that, maybe little more work because i have to do everything all over again
    but at least i don't get rusty
    i think apple is going to release GM candidate soon then GM then the official version
    my guess is that if we get a GM candidate this week coming up
    then most likely we will have High Sierra ready on September 12 after apple event

    still no bootable raid support
    yes i was able to create a raid array in High Sierra Disk using Utility from HS installer
    but it just don't let me install it there because is part of apple raid
    i really hope that i will be able to install HS in Raid0 and boot from there
    yes i can create a non bootable array but i want the array to be bootable in APFS
    just the way i have it in sierra with the old FS

    there are 2 more apps that can help
    either carbon copy cloner or softraid
    after HS is installed on a single drive then clone the drive or partition to the raid array
    but as right now CCC still doesn't support cloning APFS drives
    that was last time i checked
    also there are some extra partitions on the drive that i guess are require to boot the os
    without those extra partitions it will be impossible to boot HS

    the last hope has to be be softraid , last time i checked they mentioned that they are working to bring support to HS
    but then again is not just to have raid in APFS, we already have that
    i want a bootable raid in APFS

    Smooth update, but it's getting tiresome not having web drivers, earlier betas we have been given beta drivers but this time..
    I have a feeling we won't be seeing web drivers anytime soon.. if at all.

    i'm doing the so called nvidia workaround, modding 10.12.6 web drivers and NVDAStartupWeb.kext
    to at least have some partial support on HS
    is better than not having acceleration at all
    i posted the files in some other forum because i don't think that i'm allow to post them here

    If you have upgraded, the driver is at /usr/standalone/i386 - not sure posting proprietary binaries is allowed
