Attempted to do a fresh install of High Sierra with Unibeast 8 and got this error when I tried to create my drive. I made sure the drive formatting was correct and that I had it set to GUID Partition Table. I deleted every copy of the High Sierra installer and started from scratch to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

Same problem here. Choosing Legacy. I've already gone through the Troubleshooting Notes.

Is it a typo when it says "UniBeast will detect and only works with valid purchased Sierra install applications in /Applications." or "Most UniBeast failures are due to it not finding your valid purchased copy of Install macOS Sierra.app in /Applications, or the application is incomplete or corrupted." Shouldn't it say "High Sierra"?

Did you try a different USB stick?
Yes, multiple different USB sticks. Formatted to Journaled, GUID. Tried it on 2 different Mac computers and I am still getting the same error.

MTLaw,

What are the systems you are running on, hardware and macOS version?

Also, what types and sizes of USB sticks did you try?

Update: Not sure what happened. I was going back through and retrying every USB on both systems, to make sure none were working before replying with all the system information you requested. I formatted the drive on my Hackintosh running El Capitan 10.11.5, tried running Unibeast, it did not work there. I took that USB, put it into my Macbook Air running High Sierra 10.13.1, did NOT reformat on that computer, ran Unibeast, and it just finished.
