Finally looks correct

/dev/disk4 (external, physical):
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *8.0 GB disk4
1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk4s1
2: Apple_HFS USB-HS-5b 7.7 GB disk4s2

Thanks for the patience and help. Will test the boot tomorrow.

Thanks for that note, adding fakeSMC.kext was key to the next part.

again and compare it to what you had previously.
PILGRIM: thanks again for your patience and help.
I was able to boot into the broken Hackintosh, mount the EFI partition and fix the broken config.plist. I'm now sending this from the repaired Hackintosh.

This step extracts the Installer contents, then installs Clover bootloader to the USB stick.

1. Insert the USB drive
2. Open /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility
3. Highlight the USB drive in left column
4. Click on the Partition tab
5. Click Current and choose 1 Partition
6. Click Options...
7. Choose GUID Partition Table
8. Under Name: type USB (You can rename it later)
These instructions need updating for 10.12 and above where the disk util app has changed slightly and one must "view devices" and make sure and erase to a GUID partition.

I have been having a hell of a time getting this made. I waited until the HS was ready to install, quit, formatted drive, ran unibeast and then this happens. Tried it twice. Not sure what I've done wrong...View attachment 381141
If the installer was open or you used the red dot to close it that may be the problem. You need to open it again and close it using the top tool bar and selecting close or exit the installer. Check to see if its in your Applications folder and try running UniBeast again.
