I was able to successfully create a High Sierra boot drive last night. I screwed up either my BIOS or my MultiBeast settings so I decided to scrap everything and start over from scratch.

Today I am unable to create the High Sierra boot drive! I've tried this on two different machines now with several different downloaded versions of High Sierra Installer file. I searched the forums and made sure to download the entire installer which is 5.21GB in size. I run UniBeast with all the recommended settings and hangs during the Installation process. I see "Copying Files..." forever!

Tried everything noted in the troubleshooting guide. I repartitioned my drive to 15MB, renamed it "usb", tried a different USB port...this is the error I get in Console...
