A little help here... when I try to download High Sierra from the the Mac App store (from the link found on post #834), the download is only 22.7 MB for v.13.6.02.
Is this correct? If not, how do I gain access to the full GBs install file?

UPDATE:
Problem Solved. I was able to use a different Mac and download the full installer.

I'm having the same problem, but have tried on two different Macs and still have the same ~22mb download and not the full High Sierra install app. On a backup drive I do have a copy of High Sierra installer 10.13.3 however Multibeast says it is only compatible with 13.4+ so I think I need a newer version. Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: searched and may have found a solution here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/fix-solution-for-selected-mac-os-x-installer-is-incomplete.249330/

Update: Solved. Leave the 22mb Installer file in place in Applications, run the update from that small installer file and instead of reboooting when it asks you to, exit the Installer program, then run the commands in Terminal (use the commands suggested in post #35 in the thread in my Edit comment) and it seems to work, building a 5.21Gb High Sierra installer app.

Hello,
I followed the first post of Tony to direct upgrade my 10.12.6 installation.
I had an issue after booting on new high Sierra system drive. It was only possible to boot in safe mode and i hadn't EFI partition. I found a post in other thread who said to update the lilu.kext. The update of lilu 1.3.1 solved this issue.
It's for those who boot only in safe mode and haven't EFI partition
