    I’ve tried step by step to install High Sierra on my Lenovo G50…
    I got a message that said “EFI USB Device has been blocked by the current security policy”

    The only option at this point is hit the “ok” and reboot and then I got the same thing. What should I do?

    After creating the USB drive to install High Sierra my laptop, a Lenovo Ideapad 300, will not boot to the installer, it just stops with a black screen and sits there.

    I’m trying both UEFI and Legacy mode. Am I missing something?

    Hello, i was able to create succesfully an usb stick as mentioned. Even changed the file according to the hardware specs (Pacote de Config) but every time i boot, i boots all the way but the install menu never shows up and it’s rebooting again. Do you have some tips ?

    Hello. When I chose to erase my USB with Disk Utility, there was no option for Scheme. After I created the bootable USB in El Capitan in VirtualBox, Windows Disk Management saw the drive as RAW. And I couldn’t boot into the installer at all. Did I miss something?

      You have to erase or clean the whole USB, and on that time, you see the option Scheme, and if you select just the volume, it will show only the name and format type, not the scheme.
