When running UniBeast I am getting this error:

01/07/20 09:02:54 - err
01/07/20 09:02:54 - installer --- err --- Couldn't install Clover UEFI Bootloader


This is in a Macbook Pro Early 2015, with Catalina 10.15.2.

I have tried with different USB drives (both 16GB) to make sure it is not an issue with the media.

I'm facing the same problem, too. Then I use another hackintosh and OK.

i had same issue.
1: plug usb stick into windows pc.
2: open command line in administrator mode.
3: type DISKPART (diskpart will load)
4: type LIST DISK (it will list all hard drives & usb drives connected to your pc)
5: type SELECT DISK (disk number shown under list disk command of your usb stick)
6: type CLEAN

what this does: resets the drive being cleaned to factory defaults with NO partitions. For all intents and purposes, any computer you plug the cleaned drive into will be treated as a brand new device and will ask to initialize...

WHY ON WINDOWS? Because even though disk utility on OSX is good, it NEVER shows EFI partitions or deletes containers properly. I have hunted around places for apps or anything to do it on macos and they say use PARTITION instead, which also doesn't get rid of the efi partition.

WHY NOT USE THE WINDOWS DISK PARTITIONER?
Yeah... NAH!.... the windows disk partitioner is notorious for treating EFI/UEFI/bootloader partitions as untouchable and non deleteble. diskpart doesn't suffer from that handicap at all...

I think its the EFI causing the problem... alternatively, try another usb stick that's never been used as a osx installer before. That's how i resolved the problem :)

UPDATE/EDIT: In the past, someone on this forum somewhere pointed out that you should only have one macos installer app in your applications folder. remove any older ones, they can interfere. and they were right...
