Thanks Brunohoro. Now AppStore will only download the quick installer (18MB). I tried some tricks suggested by others but no joy. Apple has stopped those tricks. My issue is that the USB partition (External install) is not showing up! THe other attached drives (NVe, HDD or SSD) do show up. I have failed to locate a direct download link for the official High Sierra.Have you downloaded from the High Sierra Patcher app or officially from the AppStore? Try downloading officially. I had the same problem.
If you can't do it, I've read on another thread it's possible to make the bootable usb stick through the High Sierra Patcher and then install Clover and the Unibeast kexts. But I haven't tested it, though.
Thank you, this worked for me! Question, how do I edit the config file so it does this automatically on every boot?I'm experiencing this too...
Freezes about 60% through when booting to the installer.
Have tried it multiple times and getting the same result.
Used a 32gb USB flash drive plugged into a USB 2.0 port.

edit: Thanks to ryem for the fix. Go to the usb clover bootloader options, remove 'nv_disable=1' and add 'nvda_drv=1'. You'll have to do this every time it restarts or else you can change this in the actual config file which is what I plan on doing later.
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."
Installing High Sierra ver 10.13.2 to 8GB memory stick, using UEFI mode.
Any recommendations? Is 16GB really necessary? 8GB worked with Mavericks
