I'm attempting to do a completely fresh install of Catalina using the latest version of UniBeast, and when I start up from the USB installer it does not finish launching. Here's what I get:

Endpoint has been activated through legacy launch(3) APIs. Please switch to XPC or bootstrap_check_in(): com.apple.bsd.dlrhelper
Service exited with abnormal code: 1

(More detail in the attachment)

I have tried this with two different video cards (1070Ti & RX580), and the message is identical. In boot arguments I have tried toggling both Nvidia settings, which made no difference. In my bios I have VT-d disabled, Secure Boot Mode disabled, IO Serial Port disabled, XHCI Handoff enabled. I've tried the USB installer in 3 different ports.

Thoughts?
