Greetings trying to make the install USB and I'm getting this;

Volumes Are Mounted
Make sure neither"OS X Install ESD" or "OS X Base System" are mounted on your drive

What does that mean and is there another to make an install USB of Sierra?

It usually means the install app has been closed but not Quit. When the install app is open on the desktop if you hit the red dot on the upper left corner it appears closed or shut down. But it’s not. Find the install app and open it but don’t run it. Then go to the top tool bar next to the apple it should say install MacOS “version”. Scroll down on that tab and hit the “Quit” button. Then run unibeast to make your USB.

I followed the guide up through disabling the two specific MSI motherboard bios settings; trying to run the installer from USB fails, leaving these errors when in verbose mode... something to do with my NVME storage drives?

e: I've found some similar problems in threads in the support forum above. Fixes there are looking promising.
