jgutwald you are a genius.

For those that need help: Right-click finder, and select "Go to folder...". Then type in "/Volumes" and hit enter. There, if we had the same problem, you would find two "OS X Base System" files. In my case, one was a folder with a red (-) symbol. I renamed it to "other OS X Base System". After that, I ran uniBeast on the same USB that had been failing and it worked! :clap::thumbup:

I am hopefully past this part thanks to you, but dang it's slow. About how long did your disk take to finish? This is painful.

I was not able to find the dir in /volumes. I also have the same issues.. I did get it to work once.

Never since.

I was trying with many USB sticks 2x8GB version 2.0, 1x8GB 3.0 1x32GB 3.0...even using terminal command to fix, but no luck.

That's what I did: Bought Monster Digital USB stick 16GB 2.0 just $3 at Microcenter , the problem solved
That's the lowest price I've ever seen on a 16GB Flash drive. Is the build quality good, will it hold
up with usage ? Too bad they require 6 dollars to ship it if you don't live near a MicroCenter. :(

Hi guys. I had this error but trying now with MBR mode USB and it seems to be working (at least its gotten farther). So just wanted to add that it might have something to do with that.

Though, I realize the GUID mode is required for UEFI systems, but I am going to use on legacy so MBR is ok.
