I've downloaded macOS HighSierra successful (5.22 gb) but the Unibeast (8.3.2) installation failed immediately with the error message "There was an error creating your Unibeast drive: Couldn't create installer". (System: Hackintosh - Sierra 10.12.0)

Console log:
04/28/18 - Starting UniBeast 8.3.1-20180412
04/28/18 - Copying Files...
04/28/18 - Couldn't create installer

The SanDisk USB Stick (16GB) is formatted to HFS Journaled and GUID Partition Table.
Code:
/dev/disk2 (external, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *15.7 GB    disk2
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk2s1
   2:                  Apple_HFS USB                     15.3 GB    disk2s2
Any Ideas what I am doing wrong?

Did you try formatting the USB to "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)?

It is the same with my old real iMac (Yosemite 10.10.5). The Unibeast installation of High Sierra failed instantly. Any Ideas?

You need a valid copy of "macOS High Sierra". Which means you either download the full copy of High Sierra from macOS Sierra 10.12.6 or try the method in the link above. Which was btw. not working for me.
Also the image/copy of "High Sierra" provided by the third party tool "macOS High Sierra Patcher" is not working with Unibeast 8!
