I am installing High Sierra on a SSD rather than the HDD which has Sierra at the moment.
There were some issues trying to install the new OS yet all seems to be working fine at the moment. I clicked on the Restart Now button only to get that beach ball. After a second download all seems to be working fine. Granted this was just launched today so a few glitches were not out of the question. Looks like the OS installed just fine and will post should any updgrade demon gremlins pop up like weeds in a flower bed.

Great. Let us know. Of course, if that SSD is a third party drive instead of an Apple-branded drive, it won't be APFS-formatted.

Here's another pinned forum thread at FCPco to check for possible issues:

That doesn't seem to be true for me. I replaced my late 2013 MacPro with a third party SSD. It's Kingston from MCETech and it's APFS.

Interesting. I was going by the info that Apple and various reviewers were disseminating before the launch.

But did the drive reformat to APFS? That is the question.

I just opened a short HD project in 10.3.4 after installing HS on my 2012 macbook pro. My first take is that X is pretty snappy. I have a hour long multicam music project I can open later on this same laptop and that will be more of an acid test.

Is it possible something has changed in the initial launch? I am going to look in Disk Utility to see what file system the SSD is using.

Nasty. I'll warn all my Mac clients not to encrypt. I see no reason to encrypt a drive that they would be sharing with me anyway but nice to know, thanks Oliver.
