Quick question - on the clover boot loader - UEFI or legacy mode?
Gigabyte EP45-UD3L was released as a new board way before anyone was using UEFI so the answer is obvious.
I believe it was new 10 years ago, back in 2009. Man was that a colorful board. Everything now is all black.

I have a GA-EP45-UD3LR , with a nVidia Gigabyte GeForce 9600 GT, and I not able to get into mojave installation, after clover boot and chose the USB, then it stops in the attached screen, I am not sure is I prepare the glover in the correct way I did following ( https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/test-drive-how-to-create-a-clover-usb.127134/ ) and was:
  1. Format USB and instal “install macOS Mojave.app" download from app store.
  2. With "Clover package installer" didi a "Custom Install” with the settings for legacy mode.
  3. Replace EFI folder and boot from UD3L-EFI.zip, I try also copy it in EFI partition

This card does not have support in Mojave. Get a Kepler based card instead. GT 710 will work.

No. There are no Mojave drivers. Closest equivalent to that is the RX560 2GB by AMD. Just avoid the XFX version of a 560.
what do you mean with "Just avoid the XFX version of a 560” where I see that info ?

It means brands of the RX560 other than the XFX brand will work OOB. Do not buy the XFX brand of RX560. It's just common knowledge that the XFX RX560 has incompatible with macOS VBIOS.

If you want to try one by XFX you can validate this claim for yourself.

In the case to use the RX560 , do I have to change UD3L-EFI.zip? and with GT 710?

What about this one?
MSI Radeon RX 560 AERO ITX OC 4GB GDDR5
It is not XFX , but is 4 GB instead 2 GB, I guess that will be fine.

Google "Mojave 9800gt" and you'll be surprised.
