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.

I actually only have the two hard drives making the Logical Volume group mounted. All other disks aren't even powered.

No-Convert found more than one minstallconfig.xml on the mounted file systems.

There is a gap in the description. After „f. Reboot“ if not converting to apfs, do I have to boot from USB and then from Install OS, or should I immediately boot from disk and then Install macOS?

After running No-Convert you reboot to the destination volume to continue the installation of High Sierra.

For people getting stuck at the booting screen, try removing nv_disable=1 and adding nvda_drv=1. Worked for me. I have a gtx 760

Thanks for that hint . I can confirm that this "workaround" work with my GTX 660 Ti .
But when the System restarts ther a little shadows in the background.

Here is another hint : When the installer restarts , don't click on the red underlined items . After loading it restarts directly .

BTW: How can i remove this items ?

This does not work for me. If doing so, the bar will load until about 2/3 and then the screen will turn back.

If I boot from USB (via F12) and then in the clover menu select "Install macOS" I am able to install High Sierra.
But until now I could not find a working configuration using Multibeast. I have an i5-6600K and under Sierra just using the IntelGraphicsFixup via Multibeast would do the job for me. But now under High Sierra if doing so I get stuck at boot with "kexts stall[0], (60s) 'IOResources'".

Note: I don't have any Nvidia card connected to my Mainboard. It is just the integrated graphics.
