    Excellent guide as usual. Install went (pretty) smooth on my old laptop.

    - Onboard Ethernet doesn't work (AtherosLc1Ethernet), Null-Ethernet didn't seem to work, but after a 2nd reboot it did. USB3.0 Ethernet needed a bit of help (switch to Manual DHCP and back to DHCP). App store even worked when Null-Ethernet didn't.
    - The laptop even has dual screen. If I wait until the Apple boot screen and then plug in HDMI: BINGO!
    - Piker-alpha's Script to generate a SSDT for Power Management works. The laptop is more silent than it ever was under Win10
    - and even powers off

    Now the big task: make the most of the laptop by DSDT's and SSDT's.

    If I choose to bypass APFS and go with HFS+, will I be able to convert the HFS+ to APFS at a later date when Multibeast 10 is released without loosing data?

    Yes, with Disk Utility. But not if the HFS+ drive is encrypted.

    When trying to run the command '/Volumes/Image\ Volume/No-Convert', I'm getting "More than one minstallconfig.xml found, ABORTING !!!" how do I fix that?

    How long does the script take to run? I have been waiting for about 10mins and there is disk activity and the cursor in terminal has not returned to bash.

    No-Convert found multiple volumes that have High Sierra installation files. Unmount the volumes that you aren't using. Keep only the volume you are installing to.

    If you have multiple volumes mounted at this step No-Convert is searching all of them and can take time.

    Unmount the extra disks.

    The next version of No-Convert will have a solution for this.
