"No Disk Available To Install On
UniBeast installation requires a HFS-partitioned removable disk with at least 7 GB free."

The USB drive is formatted to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) as Master Boot Record.

What am I doing wrong?

Your drive is too large, the install drive needs to be between 7 GB and 32GB.

Interesting...

I ended up getting another USB this time 16 GB, and it worked.

I cranked up the Maverick installation but after the apple logo, the screen just disappeared and my monitor went to sleep mode (no signal). I have an existing Lion installation so my BIOS should be good. I just want to upgrade to Maverick.
