    • SOLVED:   Turns out while trying to avoid APFS conversion and use HFS, i corrupted installation by following common method to modify the minstallconfig.xml located in target volume>macos install data.... Corrupted my installation, method does not work,.   All is good . HFS on High Sierra working great. No Apple File Crap System  
    • Hi,   Best approach for me was to just boot into USB and run terminal command from USB...   WARNING:  modifying the minstallconfig.xml in Target>macOS install data corrupted my installation. I highly do not recommend that approach!    Here is CMD for high sierra   --   Only change  the_target_volume to whatever partition trying to install to...   /Volumes/"Image Volume/Install macOS High Sierra.app"/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume the_target_volume --converttoapfs NO --agreetolicense
    • Hi,   Dealing with this error, have tried so many things cannot get an installation to work..   It should be noted:  I have set minstallconfig .plist in target volume "macos install data" to convertAPFS to false.. I want HFS... I don't think this has any issue to do with this. I tried APFS, no luck either.   Here is EFI:   https://www.dropbox.com/sh/jw6gmvoior6xlsi/AADda1hWKSyUD1Se2DpJUbPKa?dl=0
    • Yeah me again lol macOS High Sierra and Mojave (and Catalina) will automatically convert all the SSD disks to APFS and macOS Mojave and newer will convert HDDs to APFS by default so you need to patch the installer manually with 3rd party apps.   Check this out, it might be what you are looking for: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/762-high-sierra-mbr-and-firmware-check-patch/
    • Hi,   Trying to upgrade from Sierra to High Sierra. I format as extended journaled in dusk utility before install and it forces APFS! What is the deal? I don't want APFS.   Thanks for any help.
