I have beta 1 installed, I have downloaded the profile for beta 2, when I install, after a few minutes of installing, I get the the error Could not create a preboot volume for APFS install.

Any ideas ?

I got an error to install, then pressed restart... now it seems to be trying again..? Kind of worrisome.

I'm having this problem as well. I've tried rebooting, reinstalling, reformatting, and I even formatted a spinner APFS and tried installing to that. Same problem.
