Maybe this will help someone else...

I think selecting Optimized Defaults in the BIOS on this board sets the SATA to IDE. When the Mojave installer runs it doesn’t see the drive connected SATA as a valid target.

When I set the SATA as ACHI, the Mojave installer saw it as a valid target and installed fine.

It also seems to need the USB flash to be 2.0.

I can also report the onboard USB 3.0 doesn’t work until the kt 4004 PCIe USB 3.0 is installed.

I know this probably falls in the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” category.

Any value in updating Clover to 5100 and the Kexts to their latest versions?

There are problems if the core is GK106 rather than GK107. Best to see if you can determine which core your gtx 650 has.

There's a post on here from TRS96 "if you have Windows run GPU-Z to find out if it's got a GK 107 core." Other than contacting the manufacturer, I don't know how to determine the core.
