In the screenshot the name of the sata controller is missing. Maybe that's doing something to macOS and prevents it from detecting it correctly as SSD.
Thank you for your answer, this motherboard is very old (works fine but it does not have SATA 3 connections, only works with SATA 2), I don't know if this has something to do with the problem, also, Where does the controllers name should appear?

My motherboard is almost as old as yours. I also have SATA2.

The name of the controller should be above the name of the SSD, like this:

upgrade from appstore
before upgrade followed the guide here : https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/update-directly-to-macos-high-sierra.232707/

removed NVIDIA card, injected intel, they did not released driver yet for nvidia, audio working, both VoodooHDA and USB audigy too.

Did the same, and stalled at
"busy timeout[0], (240s) kextd wait(0): 'AppleACPICPU'"
Found a thread with a solution -> copied /L/E/* to EFI/Clover/kexts/Other/*
after that the install went flawlessly. Upgraded to new Nvidia drivers with an error during the driver install, but they seem to work. My question is, should I remove the kexts in /L/E? Or just leave them there?

This is a question with some debate. I think @RehabMan will advocate for keeping them in /L/E. I personally keep all Hackintosh kexts in my EFI partition. Do whatever makes sense for you, but I would say, don't have the same kext in both places. But I'm a developer and I advocate for simplicity and long term maintainability.

I’m not having much luck! Keep getting the firmware error. SIP is disabled. apfs.epi is copied. Still no joy and haven’t yet managed to find an answer in these forums. Anyone with any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Try removing any windows disks during install, or updating clover. If you manually overwrite your SMC version in config.plist that may be the problem. There is an up-to-date firmware version for each SMBIOS and it sounds like your system is not being seen by the installer as up-to-date.
