Well I know this thread provided by your link. In fact I asked the same question there. No reply either...

 

Thanks anyway!

 

@Balamut, any idea?

How completely odd it is that each individuals installation success so far with High Sierra 10.13 seems so random and unique.   With the initial Developer Preview release, I had absolutely no issues with installing it in either HFS+ or APFS on my Dell Optiplex 790 (SFF) (and I believe with Clover v4046) on an SSD adjacent to my macOS Sierra 10.12.5 partition.    When using the same USB installer, upgrading to Clover v4084 (different config.plist, DSDT, SSDT, patches etc obviously) and trying both firmware features and new SMBIOS information, nothing worked and I was forced to resort to the "Core.pkg" install method on my HP Envy K series laptop.    After downloading the 10.13 Public Beta release, I wiped the 10.13 DP partition clean on my laptop and tried installing it from scratch though was met with the same firmware obstacles with either formats (HFS+ or APFS).   I attempted the "Core.pkg" install though this time even that failed.   Once however I upgraded Clover from v4084 to v4097, I finally was able to achieve a complete, error free install on my laptop.   On a side note, I noticed that in upgrading to Clover v4097, the Clover boot menu displayed/listed partitions (10.13 recovery etc.) that v4084 did not.

 

Point being is that to me in carefully sifting through this forum it appears that a definitive, "one size fits all" solution to installing macOS 10.13 High Sierra remains somewhat elusive thus far.

 

I originally contributed the above post on 7/2 and now after searching for a solution while rummaging through the various theories, suggestions, and others conclusions posted since then,  my situation still remains stagnant re: my HP Envy laptop in that I am unable to upgrade to the latest 10.13 release via the app store.   For me nothing listed here has made a difference; the version of Clover, the removal of the EmuVariableUefi-64.efi driver, upgrading the apfs.efi etc.   The only way I have been able to upgrade previously was via the "Core.pkg" method as mentioned and this past time through using Pike Alpha's DP3 (17A306f) update script.   The truly frustrating aspect is that once installed, my 10.13 partition operates smoothly/perfectly.

 

Is it possible that a solution exist and I have just missed it ?

@gpatpandp I had the same problem as you. Had the beta 1 also with the core.pkg installed and then determined, that no updates on Dev.Beta2 was possible.
 
Only after I then used the normal createinstall method (with USB stick) and also an Efi partition and (important) a recovery partition was created,
I had High Sierra successfully installed. Afterwards the update of the dev.Beta1 to Dev.Beta2 and now also to Dev.Beta4 without problems.
 
I also use the PikerAlpha update script on my Medion laptop, because there the 480 GB SSD is only partitioned with MBR and I have no EFi partition
and no recovery partition. On the laptop are installed on an SSD 2 times MacOS and 2 times Windows.
 
Now I have to wait until PikerAlpha writes a new update script for the Dev.Beta4.

Is there something askew with my partition makeup ?   Is the fact that my EFI partition is shared by both 10.12 & 10.13 partition the culprit ? (as recommended by rehabman, I do not install kexts in Clover EFI at all.   Instead I install them at the root level /Library/Extension folder)

MBR is not problem to install 10.13 db4.

I am used 4 kext for all of my SSD and all kext is injected by Clover

guys , does the voodo ps2controller kext work with this dp4 using the trick posted earlier in the thread by renaming the Darwin  value from 16 to 17 in the info.plist.

 

Is the trackpad working for you all.

I have a strange freezing issue, it only happens after wake from sleep but not immediately, after 20-30 minutes.

What could be the cause?

 

Edit: Actually it freezes without sleep too but not every time.

Am I‘m blind or isn’t it possible to boot HS Developer Beta 4 without an USB Stick or an HFS+ drive ?

It is possible to install HS on HFS + J and it is also possible to start without USB key

1) it’s not possible to choose anything in Beta 4 for HFS+

2) if I Install clover the drive is not bootable at all and also not visible without an HFS drive.

I do not know how you try it but yes it is possible to have HFS + and for APFS you need Drivers UEFI apfs.efi or apfs-64.efi for the Legacy Clover

You must put this drivers into drivers64UEFI or drivers64

Then why we talk about it? Try to install beta 4 then we can talk further.

 

Beta 3 was completely different but Beta 4 changed a lot!

 

LOL you are testing hfs+???

 

HFS+ is the old system and apfs the new one!

I think the release notes for DP4 mentioned about newer machines only using APFS so maybe try different smbios and check your results to see if it gives both HFS and APFS options during OS installation.

I guess it depends on the media type HighSierra should be installed on. I use iMAC 13.2 SMBIOS and for testing purpose I installed HighSierra DP4 on a spinning disk and a SSD both were formatted as HFS+ the spinning disk stayed on HFS+ after installation and HighSierra runs fine on it but the SSD was converted to APFS during install without any further notice. I guess it really depends on the target media type and the SMBIOS does not have any influence on it.
