Restore High Sierra.pkg install fails.

Question

I launch the pkg
I change the Install location to the USB drive
I click "Install"
I enter the password for my Mac
Pkg says "Configuring Installation" then jumps to "The Installation Failed"
Wassup with that?

When I unzip Restore High Sierra I just get the .pkg. I'm not about to install the pkg on my main HD unless I know what it's going to do.

this worked for me

but now I stuck in the installation process - "could not be installed on this computer" 

I have an ASUS A68HM-PLUS Mobo and an AMD A10 processor - any tips??

Well, the pkg is beginning to install High Sierra on my SSD, but then stops with the error code "could not be installed on this computer" :doh:

OK, maybe I'm doing something seriously stupid. 

I extract the Restore High Sierra PKG from the zip file. 
There is no DMG.
I try to install the PKG onto a USB drive and I get the error message.
I am not about to install the PKG on my desktop
WTF???

@hayduke Restore High Sierra is a PKG, You have to download the torrent separately

I got it working (sorta). You need to download the PKG and the DMG torrent. Put them in the same folder on your USB and the install will work.

WARNING: it will wipe your USB. 

Problem I'm having now is I can't get it do boot without having my USB drive hooked to the laptop.

Where do I download the Restore High Sierra pkg? Can not find it anywhere. Downloaded the main image and it is not included.
