I am probably not doing something right.
I do not have a lot of experience and some of the steps are confusing for me.
I was wondering if I could get some kind of direction of what I am doing wrong or what do I have to do.

40Gb RAM
System BIOS 786G5 v03.61 (this is the only one I could get that is current)

I have a 1T SSD drive on a PCI card running Windows 10 PRO that I took off during installation.

So I have a 2TB SSD that I connected to my MacPro 5.1 running High Sierra with a SATA to USB adapter.
I erase the drive Install macOS High Sierra /Mac OS Extended (Journaled) / GUID Partition Map
Trying Unibeast High Sierra I get the message: No disk to install on.
Running the terminal with the command.
I'm running Clover_r5124 / change install location customize as described above.
When I hit install after entering my password, I get this message;

This package is incompatible with this version of macOS and may fail to install.

Installing this package may damage your system, and the installation may fail. To stop the program and the installation, click “Cancel Installation”.

I click "Install Anyway"
Copy the kexts into the 2 files in the Install macOS High Sierra /EFI/Clover/kexts
Open Clover Configurator ... nothing happens ... go to file/open ... nothing, I don't see anything on the screen. Check the desktops again ... nothing!
Redownload the app, just in case ...
I can see the .plst files but nothing pops up.
Can I get some help with this app please?
Trying to boot from the SSD I only get a black screen and "6"

I would greatly appreciate your support and thank you in advance.
