should the hard drive be formatted before starting the installation?
Not needed, you are supposed to be booting from the USB drive and then when you reach the install window then format it according to the first page instructions.

What NUC are you using? Can't really help without that information.
It's all good, I plugged the wrong hdmi cable to my NUC. My old monitor only supports higher resolution via dp ou dvi, I switched to a hdmi-dvi cable and everything worked.

I still have a problem with the audio low volume bug. I'm using the headset output and have a NUC8I7BEH

Try changing the audio layout ID in your config.plist to 28, I think it’s set to 3 now. See how to here, instructions using clover configurator are towards the end of the guide.

The audio Layout is already 28. Reset HDA is unchecked, does it have to be checked ?

No. There are four or five other layout IDs that work with with this codec. The guide shows how to identify what device and choices for ID there are. I’ve also posted about which they are in this thread before but I’m away from my desk. Try one of the other IDs.

Hackintool indicates the audio device is a Realtek ALC235
I tried the layout from this page for ALC235
Same issue with every ID tested :s

I finally managed to move forward, now the installation starts well, I changed the hard disk which was new and seems incompatible with the UEFI on the NUC.
The new disk is clearly visible in the BIOS

Thank you for your help
