    Has anyone successfully upgraded from macOS Sierra to macOS High Sierra with FileVault on? I tried, but I have some problems.

    After the installer prepares the installation and reboots for the first time, I am asked to enter my password as usual in the FileVault screen (I notice the new High Sierra wallpaper), but when I do I get an error saying "Error Loading Kernel Cache (0xe)" and everything stops.

    This happens both trying a direct upgrade and upgrading from a USB installer. Do you have any idea? Should I disable FileVault, upgrade, and then enable it again?

    I was not able to upgrade with filevault. I ended up backing up drive with CCC, reformatted drive, installed High Sierra, and use migration assistant to restore.

    I have not yet tried to re-enable filevault in HS, not sure it will work or not
