OK so I got hold of another PC today, a HP 800 G1 i7. I moved the PCIE card into that and the bios sees it as a boot drive. So our assumption is correct that you cannot boot from PCIE connected M.2 drives on the 8300.
THe G1 is in really nice condition so I might try doing the install in that instead. It's not beat up like the 8300 I have so if I can get it installed then it will be a nicer looking machine overall anyway
Try putting your EFI folder on another drive. Once Clover loads, if it sees your PCI drive, you should be able to select and boot from it.
