I can't download the installer for macOS Sierra on my genuine Mac, so I can't really create a Unibeast bootable drive to use on other computers. I get the error shown below when I try to download it from the Mac App Store.

Is there any way to get around this or download it from Apple another way?

Download El Capitan and make an installer.
Install El Capitan on your Hackintosh then upgrade it to Sierra.
You may then make a Sierra installer.

El Capitan is not available on the Mac App Store.
It is if you have downloaded it previously, as is any other version of OS X.
If you cannot access El Capitan then use an earlier version of OS X.

Ah, perfect. Thanks. I have it downloading right now. Is macOS Sierra confirmed going to work if I have El Capitan installed?

Right, I just meant downloading the .app installer from the App Store.

If you have the system definition of a Mac that meets the minimum requirements to install Sierra then it should be ok.
Suggest iMac14,2.
