You can install Yosemite / El Capitan / Sierra / High Sierra on X99 hardware. However, the Unibeast USB stick you made cannot boot on X99 hardware without some modifications.

If it is High Sierra you want, perhaps you should check this thread first :

Is this still the case? I am seeing in some guides that you have to modify and patch bios of your motherboard and I'm afraid it might mess up something for use as this machine is my daily drivers windows machine as well. Do most people build an entirely new machine for hackintosh or some people dual boot ?

Personally I don't have to patch or modify the BIOS of my motherboard GA-X99-UD4. I am able to run El Capitan and Sierra on my X99 system (both OS were cloned from other working systems). But you will have to modify the Unibeast USB stick by adding and removing some files, or otherwise it won't be able to boot on a X99 system.
