    The macOS High Sierra 10.13 Public Beta is now available. Apple wants as many users as possible to test macOS High Sierra to provide constructive feedback before the official release later this fall. To participate in the free Public Beta, you must enroll in the Apple Beta Software Program using your Apple ID.

    Enroll in the Free Apple Beta Software Program
    https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/welcome

    This site will allow discussion of this software and its installation for those who have enrolled. Therefore we’ve added new subforums for the beta where users can post for support: High Sierra Desktop Support, High Sierra Desktop Guides, High Sierra Laptop Support and High Sierra Laptop Guides.

    If you're installing the Public Beta, let us know how it goes!

    Nice!! I hope Clover will soon be updated to work with APFS. This is a really interesting release.

    Clover is working with APFS. You need a couple of EFI drivers though. One you find in the beta,
    Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 21.41.58.png
    the other is in Apple firmwares - APFS Jump Start Driver (the file you want is also named apfs.efi, you had better search the latest version from somewhere). (Edit: Not needed with latest Clover) Also updated SMBIOS in config.plist to match an APFS-capable firmware version. Example...
    Code (Text):
    <key>ProductName</key>
    <string>iMac14,2</string>
    <key>BiosVersion</key>
    <string>IM143.88Z.0118.B46.1705011514</string>
    <key>BiosReleaseDate</key>
    <string>05/01/2017</string>
    again use the latest version for your ProductName
