what do i type for yosemite?
Same here.Well, I have the same problem that kicked this thread off: "MacOS Installer is Incomplete." I've tried Yosemite, El Capitan, and Sierra, all with the same result. I do get the full install of 5 to 6 GB, not the 12.9 MB that the original instructions dealt with. Because of that I didn't see the need to run the original set of code that was given. The only thing that I did try was setting the system date back to 2012 and that didn't work. I'm attempting this on my 2015 MacBook Pro currently running Catalina 10.15.5. Any ideas?
Unibeast 5 and 6 do not like the files I'm getting from Apple.
Also not sure when it changed but Apple now has direct downloads of 10.10, 10.11, and 10.12 at https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211683 .
As far as I can find these are no longer in the store.
10.13-10.15 are store links but on Snow Leo I'm unable to download 10.13 as it's not compatible.
Those downloads are all the 5-6GB files and run fine and extract themselves to the Applications folder.
I've downloaded them on PC and direct on the 10.6.8 iBoot hackintosh and keep getting the same issues.
Deleted all the files and re-downloaded several times.
Unibeast (probably v3) used to work when I could get my purchased copy of Sierra from the App Store but the "free" version isn't working . I've done it many times before on this very computer, but have misplaced my Clover USB with Sierra.
Decided to do the Hackintosh again and have hit a brick wall.
I posted in the thread titledHi there,
You've posted in the High Sierra Desktop forum. Are you running a desktop with HS? Or a laptop with another version of macOS?
UniBeast will work with original Yosemite to High Sierra installer files, but these have been subsequently updated by Apple - hence their support page you link to - to renew their certificates which had timed-out causing the older versions to refuse to install - as per the OP of this thread.
If UniBeast has difficulty with these *.pkg files then try using the "createinstallmedia" Terminal command instead to create your boot stick. For High Sierra the beta guide is here:

I posted in the thread titled
"Fix/solution for "Selected Mac OS X Installer is incomplete"I understand this is the wrong part of the forum but this is the thread that came up (repeatedly) in my searching for the issue I have.
Unibeast 5 and 6 did NOT work with the current versions of Yosemite (or El Cap) until I applied the fix.
And for clarification, the "fixed" Yosemite only works with Unibeast 6, 5 still gets the same error.
