Question: High Sierra Issue
I have a Macbook Air which I wanted to upgrade to High Sierra. I have noticed during the installation process after the MBA restarts, a blinking folder icon with a question mark appears on the screen. The MBA that I had tried to upgrade to High Sierra, I got the question mark folder and I noticed the SSD drive was completely erased, no partitions and completely unformatted. I had to erase the internal drive just to get a new partition. After I did that I was able to install Sierra. Everything was fine after that.
Is there something that High Sierra is doing to the partition or drive during the installation? Going forward, how do I prevent the drive from being erased?
High Sierra is being download directly from the App Store and upgraded after the download is complete. I am not sure if this applies to all MBAs or certain models. I am going to upgrade my MBA from Sierra to High Sierra and see if I run into any issues.
