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.
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.

First time unibeast user, long time mac user. Haven't attempted to build a hackintosh since early 2006, so my learning curve is pretty steep. On my macbook, I have tried to create the boot media, and unibeast is failing with "There was an error creating your unibeast drive: Couldn't copy apfs.efi to destination EFI folder". Log output is below:
Code:
10/24/17 21:18:13 - Starting UniBeast 8.0.0-20171024
10/24/17 21:18:38 - Copying Files...
10/24/17 21:26:46 - Installing Bootloader...

10/24/17 21:26:51 - Copying apfs.efi...
10/24/17 21:26:52 - Couldn't copy apfs.efi to destination ESP folder
I have rebooted, reformatted, and tried again with the same issue. Brand new 16gb sandisk thumb drive. Ideas?

Thanks
I posted here how I soved this: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/error-when-i-create-usb-with-unibeast-8-0.235485/#post-1614080

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.
Brilliant thanks for your help, this worked perfectly and I am now running HS on HFS+
