    As title says, UniBeast allows the user to choose UEFI mode and use a flash drive which is MBR partitioned, even though this will not be bootable.

    Closed, this is a feature of the Clover installer.

    It is not a bug... but rather a valuable feature.

    Most systems can boot UEFI to an MBR USB.
    And some actually require it (as they cannot boot UEFI from a GPT USB).
    You should not assume that all systems are the same as yours.
