I have a problem when follow this tutorials to install High Sierra in my PC:
- After installation, everything work properly
- But after softwares installation (everytime, every software) it stuck at apple logo loading on next restart (i think it cannot load nVidia Web Driver). Then I have to boot from my Installer USB to install Multibeast again to wake up my High Sierra.
Anyone with any solution can help me solve this issues, please ?

I seem to have hit a snag. I followed this Install guide successfully, and after a short while discovered what I should have already known: APFS seriously mucks with my ability to interface all of my other computers with the one running High Sierra--incidentally the most important one for all of them to interface with.

So I decided to go erase the install and do it again, installing with HFS+J. I plugged my High Sierra APFS SSD into one of my older macs, erased it and reformatted it with HFS+J, put it back into the Hack, and followed this guide again. I performed the steps to avoid the conversion to APFS: boot from installer USB, point to HFS+J, start installation, when it auto-reboots go back into USB and input /Volumes/Image\ Volume/No-Convert into the terminal and reboot, pick up the install as normal from there.

When the install finished, I nonetheless ended up with an APFS formatted drive again. Did I miss something?

An earlier step, step 6, indicates that I must erase and format the destination drive according to a set of steps. I performed those steps; however I did so from a different computer, outside the environment of the InstallUSB. Is that where I went wrong, or does it not matter how the destination drive got formatted to HFS+J?

Here's a brief video guide that may help you to figure out how to prevent APFS conversion.


It would probably be best to do this all on the same PC that you plan to do the install on.

I haven't had time to try again yet, but the video you posted very likely pointed out my problem. When I put in the No-Convert command into Terminal, it didn't return any information for several seconds, so I just assumed what needed to be done was done and went on the to the next step of rebooting. Contrary, the video shows that the terminal will return an acknowledgement when the script is done.

I conclude that my ignorance about Terminal operations was what lead me to failure. I simply didn't wait long enough after triggering the No-Convert script before rebooting, which meant that the No-Convert script didn't complete. I'll try again in several hours.

Confirmed. My problem was that I rebooted before the No-Convert script completed. Successful HFS+J High Sierra installation. Thank you!

Now I move on to trying to solve my audio problem (no audio devices detected, likely due to z370 board). But it looks like that'll be the last hurdle.
