APFS - Have I reinstalled MacOS correctly?

by Jack Fuller   Last Updated January 13, 2018 18:12 PM

I tried to dual boot into linux the other day and accidently ended up messaging my boot volume - the machine ended up booting only into Grub resuce.

I ended up using diskutil to erase the Linux filesystem and swap memory but was forced to erase my MacOS boot volume. I keep backups of everything so it wasn't a huge problem.

My question is have I reinstalled MacOS (High Sierra this time thanks to internet recovery) in the correct location. As it currently stands I think I've installed it directly onto the disk rather than a volume - is this normal with APFS containers?

Output of diskutil list is as follows:

/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *251.0 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:                 Apple_APFS Container disk1         2.4 GB     disk0s2
   3:                 Apple_APFS Container disk2         248.3 GB   disk0s3

/dev/disk1 (synthesized):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      APFS Container Scheme -                      +2.4 GB     disk1
                                 Physical Store disk0s2

/dev/disk2 (synthesized):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      APFS Container Scheme -                      +248.3 GB   disk2
                                 Physical Store disk0s3
   1:                APFS Volume MACOS                   15.1 GB    disk2s1
   2:                APFS Volume Preboot                 22.8 MB    disk2s2
   3:                APFS Volume Recovery                506.6 MB   disk2s3
   4:                APFS Volume VM                      3.2 GB     disk2s4

Do I need to change anything based on the above disk configuration?
