You must select GUID partition but it's only available if you select in the view options at the top left corner of the Disk Utility window, "Show Only Volumes". So simply select view - show all devices, then select the actual drive you're trying to reformat, then when trying to erase, you should have the option to choose a partition scheme.

This fixed my


"Copy of 'apfs.efi' failed" error

Thanks :thumbup:

Thanks a million! I had the exact same problem as OP. Seems so obvious now

Same problem for me, I will try again tonight and make sure the Finder window is closed.

EDIT: I tried again with a new USB-stick and still the same. I'm on Catalina on my MacBook so I thought maybe it's a compatibility issue with Unibeast so I tried Mojave instead of High Sierra and that worked fine. Not sure why the High Sierra Unibeast won't work but the Mojave will.
