I was afraid of this. I did the flash last year when Apple didn't support it:

EFI and Firmware update from 4,1 to 5,1 for Sierra Upgrade Solved

I tried booting mine up off an external drive with High Sierra installed and got that EFI boot notification. I was afraid to do it on mine as I was already at 5,1.

Now that Apple has put this in the High Sierra they are obligated to assist you for free with any problems with it.

I would call them up and get a senior advisor on this fast. 1-800-MYAPPLE


Bart, please let us know what you find out from Apple as a lot of others will need to do this upgrade.
