    Yes you do. Just follow the first part of the guide for APFS.

    I don't have any kexts on my EFI partition, is it normal? I would download them, but I don't know which kexts I need to add to Other folder, can I download all of them or can I find those, which is my system using to put them in Other folder?

    Thanks for advice!

    The kext which you're using are at Library/Extensions on the system partition- not on the EFI.
    You have to copy the ones you need from there to the EFI-Folder (CLOVER/kexts/other)

    I think you'll have the same question as I did before a few posts :lol: (see quote below)
    Maybe someone will help us
    :)

    Thanks, is it problem, if I copy all of them from this folder? Like kexts for printer, Logitech keyboard etc.? Because I don't know, which of these I need and which not...

    So I did update and now I am on High Sierra only with these three problems:

    1. My SSD was not converted to APFS instead it is still journaled HFS+ (does anyone know why?) I have followed the procedure for updating to APFS

    2. On clover page I am missing icon for Mac OS instead of it I have there "internal_hfs" - anyone knows how to fix it?

    3. Finder is unable to open EFI partition after mounting it, anyone experienced this?

    Thanks!

    Soon, we're testing. Adding an option to not use APFS (use HFS+). If you want my advise, wait for 10.13.3. Then all the major bugs will be corrected and APFS will be more mature. :thumbup:
