    I had the same error. How did you resolve this? I'm in Safe Mode. It says it has to be HFS, I thought OS X Journaled is HFS?

    Hi, does this have a solution? I'm using Unibeast 6.2, tried both 16GB and 8GB, and redownloading El Capitan. I've gotten this error multiple times. I am trying to use Unibeast 5 but I'd really rather have Clover. I followed the tutorial and erased, selected GUID Partition Table, injected ATI. Same as @jal , it is hackintosh in safe mode. I'm not sure I understand his answer "it is possible to have the EFI partition formatted as HFS" does that mean Mac Extended (Journaled)?

    Thank you very much.

    So? Anyone has solution for this?
    I'm having the same issue with Unibeast 7.1.1 trying to create a Sierra bootable to a 16gb USB Stick formatted in GPT.
    I'm using my MBPRetina with Sierra.
    I get stuck on "Installing Bootloader" everytime. Even let it doing throughout the night but nothing happened.

    What does install.log say for the failure?
