I also attempted to do a totally new installation on a new SSD via OpenCore. I was not successful either. Depending on time, I may try again later.
I got a tip that the problem may be with CFG LOCK.

Check these sites

<https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Post-Install/misc/msr-lock.html#what-is-cfg-lock>

After checking with VerifyMsrE2.efi I am still stuck. It returned:

This firmware has BORKED MSR 0xE2 register!
Some cores are locked, some are not !!!

Some of you having difficulties getting OpenCore to work for GA-H170N-WIFI on El Capitan (or not), may want to search the site for threads on "GA-H170N-WIFI" and "OpenCore", especially the thread posted by "wstrohm". There are samples shared by others who have been successful, which might help to resolve your problems with getting OC bootloader to work with this motherboard.
