Hi,

I'm trying to install macOS High Siera on a fresh new system comprised of Gigabyte GA-H270M-D3H + Intel Core i5 7400 and a 250GB SSD inside, using this Unibeast Guide. I also ran into this Unibeast bug and used the workaround mentioned there to proceed further.

It works fine till the step where I boot from the SSD to complete the installation, i.e:
Clover → USB → Select Boot from High Sierra SSD

Here, I get to the macOS Installer and I get an error which says "macOS could not be installed on your computer - The installer resources have expired. Quite the installer to restart your computer and try again." (Photo attached)

I've tried the whole process twice so far, but to no avail.

Any help?

Hey guys. I tried to install macOs High Sierra on my new hardware just today and got the same issue.
After a bit of googling I had found a solution that worked for me.

Boot with your USB stick until you see the menu with options like `Restore...` `Install...`etc. Then go to `Window`and start the `Terminal`. In terminal use this command - `ntpdate -u "time.apple.com"` it will update date time. After that I erased my volume once again and installed the system. I'm not sure whether you have to erase the volume with installed macOs and install it again or not, I didn't check it. But erasing and reinstalling the system after the command in terminal helped me and now I'm writing it within installed macOs system.

I got this message the first time I attempted to install High Sierra about 3 days ago.

I attempted again after reading elsewhere in these forums that just trying again would avoid the issue. I believe I downloaded a fresh copy of High Sierra installer and created a fresh bootloader USB using UniBeast (and the two terminal commands required for version 8.2 to work) following the general 10.13 High Sierra Installation Guide.

I'm not sure what caused the issue or what solved it, but I did not encounter it the second attempt of a clean High Sierra install.

Good Luck!

Make sure you have the latest version of High Sierra on that drive (10.13.4 as of now). Maybe that would solve it.

edit: I see you already found a solution ;O

I had the same issue. Just checked BIOS time and made the update to the installer USB drive and reinstalled without any reformat on top of the existing installation with the issue. Worked like a charm.

The solution mentioned here : running in terminal ntpdate -u "time.apple.com" will update the date & time according to apple server. This will not work if the installer is not connected to internet.

Usually, this can be fixed by setting the right date & time in the bios

You can connect the PC to the internet in the upper right with WiFi. Then you can update the time of the installer and also check the time of the BIOS. That solved my issue quite easy.
