    Hi
    I've used UNIBEAST for El Capitan and a 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Disk, but the installation failed and no way I can can use the flash again.
    I tried to format it on MAC, PC, Linux... always the same "write protect"

    Any help??

    Sounds like it died, hopefully it's one of those with a lifetime warranty.

    hello
    I don't care that much about the drive, but this should never happened!
    it's a big huge mistake from the author of the program not to take care about installation failure and destroy the drives.

    Why do you think UniBeast destroyed the drive? UniBeast has been used thousands of times with no reports like yours.

    So who do you blame when other pieces of hardware break? Microsoft for a drive failure? Adobe for a graphics card failure?

    Hardware failures cannot happen as a direct result of installing any operating system directly to an SSD or HDD. There has to be a hardware failure that happens when a computer tries to write information to that drive. If the action of writting info to a drive is the trigger for the failure, then that is bad luck, but it may have happened at any time.

    UniBeast is used to create the USB installer - it isn't involved in any process in the action of writing to the final installation disk.
