Tl;dr: Anyone have a write up for doing a clean install of High Sierra onto a virgin SSD for a mid-2010 MBP? Trying to squeeze a couple more years out of my mid-2010 MBP. I just successfully installed a new wireless card and Continuity Activation Tool. With that working properly the next step is an SSD. I’ve been reading ad-nauseum and coming across a lot of conflicting information. At this point I’m lost as to the proper method. I’d prefer a clean install over a time machine backup due to a lot of junk left over from various things. Can an install be done using internet recovery? This seems to be the simplest way, and I’ve read instructions to do so, but I’ve also read it’s not possible since this is a pre-Lion machine. I could do a bootable USB, but there’s confusion there too about formatting (HFS+ vs APFS). I’ve read to install Sierra first, then upgrade to HS. ???? This has to do with HS not recognizing some SSD drives? Can anybody tell me what’s current and what info is old and outdated?
