From what we have seen so far,

we wouldn’t install 10.13 on anything older than a 2012 and your mac has to have a minimal of 8GB of ram and an SSD,

Make sure you do a time machine back-up before you install High Sierra.

Safest way to upgrade to macOS High Sierra without APFS

The way that we strongly suggest doing this is the safest and easiest.


Safest because if something goes awry,

the upgrade can be dropped without changing what you already have:


1,Clone the boot drive to any spare external drive.


2,Boot off the spare clone.


3,Upgrade the spare/clone. The updater will leave the file system alone,

it won’t be converted to APFS.


4,Boot off the now updated spare/clone.

Check things out and verify that things are working to your satisfaction

don’t rush this.

Make sure everything is acting right and that everything you normally do is OK as well.

Satisfied?


5,Clone the now updated external to the original boot drive.


6,Boot from the original boot drive (now updated).


By doing it this way,

there is no change to the existing boot drive

until you explicitly choose to clone back over it with the updated system.
