So, after a long time of crashing my macOS Sierra install, and just using my Windows side, I've decided to give it another try. I'm have the USB ready to go, but on the guide it says I need to plug the USB into a USB 2.0. What if you don't have one, like I do? It worked before for me? Why the change? I'm going to move forward anyways, but I am just wondering.

Thanks for your replies!

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

The reason is because you have to format with GUI.

I’m stuck when I select install macOS, I click the continue button which then greys out but nothing happens it just seems to hang. The mouse still responds and I can select other options. Mobo z170 gaming, i5 6500, rx480. Note that I have tried this with integrated and dedicated gpu and have the same issue. I was able to format the hdd in disk utility ready for macOS install.
