    Direct update from a cloned Sierra SSD seems to have worked. Not tested at all yet, USB3.1 port is recognized as such.

    You can use it but the installer won't do the conversion for you. Performance may be less than HFS+.

    I just followed the instructions of the first page and now OS doesn't boot, loading bar with logo remains there for a long time, and is not going further. I tried and achieve to boot the recovery, but not the OS. I followed the instructions as they are. Any idea of what's happening? :(

    Nvidia Drivers are not installing due to OS version being unsupported. Is there a fix for this, or did I miss a step along the way?

    Nope. You have to await the Nvidia drivers for High Sierra to be released.
