    I haven't had time to check up on all the up to date news here on HS Beta 5 but I found this in post #1134 over at the netkas forums.

    "10.13 beta 5 added a new MP5,1 firmware version MP51.0083.B00"

    Apparently adds APFS suppoert to 5,1 cMP's .

    I wonder what else is in that firmware upgrade ?

    I haven't installed any of the High Sierra betas yet . .can daring person with a ( spare ) 5,1 cMP check this out ?

    Thanks Squuiid . .

    interesting developement. I didn't have enough time to scour all the posts re this firmware upgrade but thought it needed to be pointed out
    .
    I sincerely hope that this new firmware won't affect any older OS X installations. We shall see but I won't be downloading any betas yet.

    High Sierra developement reminds me of waiting in the hospital delivery room ( in a foregign coutry ) as my first child was being delivered by C-section .. nerveracking but fascinating too. Apple really should include cMP 4,1 's on the High Siera "included" list, that would get them a lot of positive feedback.
