So the public beta 8 recognizes correctly the name of the GPU? Vega 64 I mean.
Or did you edit something?
Unfortunately RX Vega still not recognized by the system, I added the new lilu and whatevergreen to the kexts folder to see if it makes any difference, it only corrected the name but in performance wise nothing changed

For some reason it ignores the nvidia disable during usb boot. I had the same issue yesterday
You will have to manually disable it in bios

Here's apfs.efi for others in need of if. After updating from Beta 7 to Public Beta 8 I had to copy over my apfs.efi using clover USB installer.
hi guys.
sorry for this maybe noob question. can apfs.efi and hfsplus.efi coexist? or does one exclude the other?

From what I have seen so far apfs overwrites any hps file system. A couple of beta updates ago it forced my hps to use apfs..that is usually a sign of things to come


Whatever Rehabman says is true...he is the Master!!!

I'm using amd hd7950 with the betas of High Sierra but sleep/wake does not work. I have lilu and whatevergreen kexts in other folder but it still does not work. Mac OS Sierra sleep works fine though.

Thanks

Successfully installed beta 8 on M.2 NVMe Corsair MP500 120GB with APFS.efi. Corsair MP500 Is recognized by High Sierra. No patch required.
Hello

Did you use APFS?
Did you experience the slow boot-related issues mentioned in this thread that can affect some 3rd party SSD when trim is enabled (TRIM is always enabled for NVMe drives AFAIU):
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-avoid-apfs-conversion-on-high-sierra-update-or-fresh-install.232855/page-26#post-1628582
In other words, do you think/know that the MP500 is among the list of NVMe drives that are not problematic when formatted as APFS?

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
Best,

Hello,

I use APFS and I have no problems on formatting as APFS. M.2 NVMe Corsair MP500 is compatible with Mac Os and it has TRIM enabled by default. No TRIM Patch required. I used this SSD starting with High Sierra Beta 7 and I didn't notice any problem with it. I have chosen this SSD because it is compatible with Mac Os.

I have posted a speed test here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/macos-high-sierra-public-beta-8-is-now-available.230841/page-2#post-1576911
