1.7.8 DS Runtime APFS restore GUI errors

It is really great to have APFS support working (there was so much controversy about it), but currently restoring APFS images has these issues in DS Runtime:

1. Mounted volumes list does not list APFS volumes already having some macOS 10.13 installation on them (I need to manually destroy current APFS container and create a new one with one APFS volume).
2. If I select HFS volume, expecting it to be erased as APFS, the restoration fails on apfsphysicaldeviceid.sh script, which can't find APFS Container for this volume (of course, there isn't one yet, script should not be run at all or it should detect traditional partition).

Re: 1.7.8 DS Runtime APFS restore GUI errors

for 1: is your netboot OS 10.13? I stopped creating images in DS, but use AutoDMG, so did not test this part of DS.

for 2: select 'first available disk' for restore step, that is the only choice that works automated for me.

Re: 1.7.8 DS Runtime APFS restore GUI errors

Ad 1. Of course netboot is 10.13. I would not be able to restore APFS at all without that. And I mentioned restoring, not creating image. I wanted to overwrite current macOS installation with AutoDMG image, and that action requires extra steps.
Ad 2. Yes, 'first available disk' works, but it is not a viable option when restoring to Mac with multiple drives or partitions (especially with multiple macOS systems installed).
