Trying to create a fresh USB Boot Key with UniBeast 8.3.2. and keep getting the "Copy of apfs.efi Failed".

Using my Mac Book Pro w/ High Sierra to make the key.

Using the guide : https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/unibeast-install-macos-high-sierra-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.235474/#create_unibeast

Followed all the checks / instructions @ https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/unibeast-8-troubleshooting-notes.235489/

including #18 & #19

Using the following command to create the USB key:
sudo diskutil partitionDisk /dev/disk2 GPT JHFS+ USB R

UniBeast Log:

08/16/18 03:51:13 - Copy of apfs.efi failed.


EDIT:

I've also now tried installing it on the following devices / setups and they all failed.

USB 3 Key - 32GB
USB 2 Key - 32GB
USB Hard Drive - 32GB Partition
USB Hard Drive - 16GB Partition

I've also deleted and redownloaded a copy of High Sierra from the mac store to make sure that it wasn't a corrupted copy just to be safe.

Still unable to install.

UPDATE 8/17
===========
I was able to get the USB 3 Key to install correctly after trying for the 12th (Not Kidding) time.
I redownloaded High Sierra from the App Store, but this time did it with a hardline LAN connection and not downloaded using Wi-FI. This fresh copy seems to have cleared up the problem and Unibeast was able to install with no errors to the USB key.
So I'm declaring victory and moving on.

I'm running into the same problem, hopefully someone who can help replies soon. I basically have the same setup as you, and am running into the same problem.

Don't know if Movierelics has tried that yet, but that didnt work for me. Although that could just be cause my mac didnt recognize the terminal commands listed on tip 19.
