Anyone know if this works with APFS? I got an error saying that The given APFS Volume is already encrypting or decrypting (-69573)
Any luck yet?
Go to this thread: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/issue-with-filevault-2-keyboard-not-working-laptop.243173/

Download the .efi from post #8. follow the instructions in post #10

Use your USB boot drive and boot into "filevault" you should be able to use your keyboard to log in now. You will have to let filevault fully encrypt. There is no way to turn it off in high sierra with apfs (that I could find) when it's in the middle of encrypting. Once it's done encrypting you can decrypt it but that will take just as long.

The other day, I turned on FileVault in Mojave 10.14.3 with an APFS drive. When I launch the FileVault Preboot, the system hangs before I get a chance to enter a password. Any suggestions?

I finally solved my problem. The solution was to go into Clover -> Install Drivers -> Drivers UEFI 64 Bit. I had been missing some drivers indicated to help with Filevault 2. I added all that looked relevant, and it works.
