Don't think its the 8GB that's causing this - I've encountered this 'copy of apfs.efi failed' message many times - solution is to initially erase the USB key carefully - I have found Disk Utility is not reliable - ERASE and PARTITION processes (in 10.12) are not clear and certainly not fully functioning - instead use terminal command (see other posts for details).. Then use EFI Mounter v3 app to see if you can mount the USB key's EFI folder - usually this also indicates that Unibeast will complete the install.. good luck on next steps!"There was an error creating your UniBeast drive: Copy of apfs.efi failed."

Any recommendations? Is 16GB really necessary? 8GB worked with Mavericks
A FakeCPUID is necessary for x299 using UniBeast. Modify your config plist to include one and UniBeast should work. Check out this post for details:What is the chance that UniBeast will support X299+Skylake-X eventually now that the SMBIOS iMacPro1,1 is out in the wild?
I know there is a great guide for installation of High Sierra on X299, but I would really love a UniBeast to get as much as possible to work out of the box before attempting this project.
Thanks. I'm following that thread and I guess I was hoping that a more "plug and play" option might eventually be feasible, but I'm definitely not complaining over that guide!A FakeCPUID is necessary for x299 using UniBeast.
