First time unibeast user, long time mac user. Haven't attempted to build a hackintosh since early 2006, so my learning curve is pretty steep. On my macbook, I have tried to create the boot media, and unibeast is failing with "There was an error creating your unibeast drive: Couldn't copy apfs.efi to destination EFI folder". Log output is below:
Code:
10/24/17 21:18:13 - Starting UniBeast 8.0.0-20171024
10/24/17 21:18:38 - Copying Files...
10/24/17 21:26:46 - Installing Bootloader...
10/24/17 21:26:51 - Attaching Base System...
10/24/17 21:26:51 - Copying apfs.efi...
10/24/17 21:26:52 - Couldn't copy apfs.efi to destination ESP folder
I have rebooted, reformatted, and tried again with the same issue. Brand new 16gb sandisk thumb drive. Ideas?

Thanks

Did you come across a solution to this?

Heads up for those who want to jump in early but still go with APFS. The current Multibeast will not work. Hope MB10 is just around the corner :)

Good morning. I am new.
During the installation, I can't use my ps/2 mouse for selecting options. I've stopped the installation for staying far from problems, but: what can I do for going on? Thank you.

Same issue with me on legacy option. Works fine on my UEFI system and brand new flash drive too.

For people getting stuck at the booting screen, try removing nv_disable=1 and adding nvda_drv=1. Worked for me. I have a gtx 760
How do I do this?
