Note

If you have an SSD this will auto upgrade you to APFS, you need to follow Shaneees' tutorial here on APFS
First you need apfs.efi files then second step you. Need a efi mounter or mount efi in windows and paste apfs.efi in driverefi and driver64UEFI folder
:You can find apfs.efi on the USB drive in EFI/Clover/driver64UEFI folder. If you're booting Legacy with no UEFI bios then you need to copy apfs.efi to USB/Clover/drivers64 folder. 

First upon u need to download 2 files
1.TransMac
2.AMD HighSierraV3 Image FilesTo begin use Trans

For Download transmac Full version click here TRansmac

For AMD Image Download From AMD-OSX.com Click here


After Finished Downloaded. Next step is restore Image in USB Pendrive

mac to restore the HighSierraV3Unofficial.dmg file to a USB drive, the USB drive needs to be at least 8GBs in size.USB:

1.Ok once you've got TransMac installed and the DMG you want to restore right click on the TransMac icon and Run as Administrator.





Once open click on Tools > Settings and open then Disk Drives tab and change the settings to match the image below,



Now that's done we are ready to restore the image. Locate your USB device in the sidebar of TransMac on the left and right click it then choose, Restore With Disk Image.




Now locate the DMG you choose and open it. This will begin to format the USB and start the restore process.


Once complete you will be able to reboot into the new USB installer. Remember to set the USB as the boot device in the BIOS or press the appropriate key to choose a boot device when booting.

You need to select HighSierraAMD to begin. If you get a Waiting on Root Device message, move the USB to a different port for a few seconds to see if the install continues. If it does not then keep moving ports until it does.
