    Hi guys.

    I have a Macbook where I've exchanged the old conventional HD with an 2,5" SSD. Is it possible to install macOS High Sierra with APFS on a separate partition along with a partition running Mac OS Sierra with HFS?

    Or do both partitions have to be either HFS or APFS? I can't really figure out.

    So both partitions with different filesystems can be on the same and only drive?

    Yes. I tested High Sierra with this configuration.
    An APFS container is merely a GPT partition.

    My partitions during testing:
    1: HFS+, macOS 10.12
    2: APFS container, macOS 10.13 beta
    3: NTFS, Windows 10
    4: ext4, Ubuntu
