Can you update the requirements to say: A USB drive between 16GB and 32GB in size. UniBeast will not recognize drives larger than 32 GB.

I keep hitting this error every few years. USB drives under 32 GB are going to be harder to find at some point.

Otherwise, great guide.

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 21:26:52 - 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.
