    I have been unable to convert my internal SDD drive to APFS. I'm on PB2 and get a 60953 error when trying to convert. Checkbox failed during PB1 install and Have tried using disk utility in recovery mode in PB2.

    On the release notes for DB4 I noticed that HDD only Macs aren't supported with this release. I wonder if the beta thinks my system has a HDD (since it once did?). I am thinking not because I would not have gotten the checkbox on PB1 acknowledging my SDD and the benefits of APFS?

    We will see tomorrow or Wednesday whether PB3 allows me to upgrade. I am not hopeful. My issues don't seem to be common which is what leads me to think its something to do with my system.

    Everything look ok here? I only have one drive (SSD):

    Have you reported it as a bug?

    Bear in mind you are running pre-release software, if this does not work as expected, make a bug report (i.e., a proper bug ticket to apple, not a post here) and maybe it might get fixed.

    No snark intended, but this is what beta tests are for... and Apple do respond to bug reports. You may not get the response you want given your hardware (then again you might), but you definitely won't if it isn't reported by anyone properly.

    Thanks! No snark taken! Yes I have reported it twice now with each PB release! Hopefully today’s will address it.

    Anyone else have a similar experience trying to convert to SDD? It's still not happening for me.

    My 2014 Mac mini with a 500Gb SSD that I had put in to replace the 500GB HDD, it converted with no issues back on DP1. The SSD is a PNY CS2211.

    Thanks, anyone with an older MBP like mine with an upgraded internal SSD having issues?

    I have a PNY CS1311 SSD, (960 GB) in my early 2011 MBP.....It previously supported the use of "sudo trimforce enable" ... with the latest update, it says it is going to be enabled as it normally would, but after rebooting, does not appear to be enabled.


    I have converted to APFS, and FileVault 2 as well.

    The only other issue I have is, that I can not stop a partition from auto-mounting at boot...a minor issue.

    I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro with a Samsung EVO 850 and it converted to APFS without issue. My previous HDD and external HDD would throw up the same error and become unusable, resulting in a reformat.

    I wonder if I set mine up wrong with regard to format or partitions?

    When I originally set up the SSD, I formatted/partitioned it and then restored the image from my old HDD to it using CCC. I wonder if restoring an image from an HDD to and SDD has anything to do with my failure to convert?
