Final edit: Decided to opt for Sierra. I had much more luck with that one and got it fully working now. I'll probably get back to High Sierra sometime in the future but for now I'm sticking with this one.
Seems nothing changed after doing this. Does it help to know that I cannot access the USB drive from Windows after I partitioned? I noticed for instance with the apfs video that the person from the video could easily access its files. Not sure if my restore is corrupt or if they had something else on that USB.
. Nevermind, found out how to access the EFI partition. Currently exploring here.
EDIT: My PC only has USB 3.0 ports so I've been using those. I've often seen stuff about it not properly working with macOS, maybe it has something to do with this?
Btw: A single press of the power button shuts down the pc.
UPDATE: I tried the USB in a different port (going from motherboard to front-panel), same result. I restored a different USB drive with the same dmg (this one being usb 2.0, still in a usb 3.0 port though). This one gave me the same result. This gives me a few options as far as I know:
- The dmg is corrupt (would be strange, considering others have downloaded it and it worked successfully, I've downloaded it twice now too)
- My TransMac isn't properly restoring the USB drive (I followed the TransMac tutorial by Shanee and ticked the read/write option in Settings, so configuration-wise it should be proper)
- Something with either my USB ports or BIOS is improper (I think this one would be most likely). It could have to do with the usb 3.0 ports thing I mentioned before, or either my PC just doesn't work with macOS or a BIOS setting (or settings) is causing this. I've been carefully tinkering with some settings in the BIOS without luck up until this point.
Further specs, if it may help:

- CPU: Ryzen 1600, standard clock speed (3.2 GHz)
- GPU: Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
