1. First don't try to install macOS High Sierra again.
2. Delete your drive until you have no drive.
3. To do this, power off your Mac and then hold command + R and boot up your Mac. This will open a “ macOS Utilities ” .
4. Select the " Disk Utility " option.
5. Then delete your drive in disk utility by clicking the minus button on the top right .
6. Shut down the Mac .
7. Then enter internet recovery mode by repeating the process though this time adding option and then command + R.
8. Click on "Disk Utility " option and format the disk as format type " OS X Extended (Journaled) " and Scheme " GUID Partition Map".
9. Then return back to macOS Utilities and click on the " Reinstall macOS " option.

The fix is your removing the APFS system which is what is confusing the drive which for some reason apple can't figure out themselves .

This time instead of Mac OS High Sierra you will just see macOS Sierra.

Then just click install Mac OS and you should be good to go.

I hope it will help.
