Hello,
I’m doing a new High Sierra install on my 500GB Samsung Evo ssd but after I choose to install into it, after rebooting I don’t see two icons; external and internal, I only see external. So I cannot finish my install. Any ideas. Using MacPro 2011 config.
Thank you all.

Yikes! Help!

In preparation to update from Sierra to High Sierra, I copied apfs.efi to the EFI folder and I updated Clover (using Clover), though it was already past the required version. I figured I'd better reboot so that the updated Clover was in effect. Well, the machine is now stuck on the gray Apple-logo screen.

I booted to Linux and removed the apfs.efi file, but I'm having the problem persists. What should I look for or how should I circumvent the stuck booting?

Update: Turned out that the problem was the Clover update bug which erased an EFI driver that was needed.
