I can get to clover, and to the El Cap installer, but when I try to install to my internal drive El Cap can't see it and Disk Util can't see it. I've tried changing SATA ports on the MOBO and I've tried changing hard drives. Computer often immediately shuts down during startup.

Can you run Terminal from the installer and type: diskutil list
See if it lists the drive you are trying to install to.
If not, sounds like a hardware problem.
