Question: Cannot update to High Sierra on MacMini 2014 with Fusion Drive.

I cannot update to High Sierra on my MacMini 2014 with Fusion Drive. I tried all of the suggestions in this community and eventually wiped the HD and had Sierra 10.12.6 clean reinstalled at my local Apple Store, but still cannot update?! Is this a Fusion Drive issue?

The High Sierra update downloads and the update process begins as normal, but when the Mac restarts the update process stops and it opens up as normal.


I’ve updated two other MacBook Pro’s to High Sierra, so know what a successful update looks like.


I’ve tried updating in safe and recovery modes, no difference, the update process stops after restart.

I see. You could try installing from a bootable USB installer.
