Post a copy of the actual CLOVER folder you are using with this second system.

The one linked in that guide should get you to the desktop, it will need a lot of attention to get it running well for your specific components.

Can you confirm the following:
  • You are installing or have already installed Mojave 10.14.6?
  • Is this your Asrock motherboard - https://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z270M-ITXac/index.asp
  • If no, provide a link to the motherboard you are using in this system.
  • If yes, it will have an Intel WiFi card attached. This WiFi card will never work and the Bluetooth aspects of the card are likely to cause issues. You will need to replace it with a compatible Broadcom WiFi/BT card, something along the lines of the Broadcom BCM94352Z NGFF m2 (DW 1560) combo card.

Try this CLOVER folder, it should work hopefully.

It will probably need tweaking to get this Skylake/Kaby Lake system running well.

Good to know you have the system up and running High Sierra.

Thanks for the PayPal donation, it is very much appreciated.

Yas, also now I get Trim with sudo trimforce enable... Because I have this board z270 itx with a i7-6700 and I use it with a NVMe SM961 256GB... with Win Seven, in fact it's the last setup that still can support it without graphic issues... Si I'm thinking to keep my NVMe wit Windows and dual boot with High Sierra on a Crucial M550 512 GB.... but I like now also to have the trim... Than I will get a WiFi/BT Card...... One question: If I dual boot from the bios Win / Mac OS from different SSD one system could not affect the other... I mean Win wil not write on Win SSD and Mac not over Win SSD. Is it true? Many thanks.... :)
Any Idea how solve the problem of monitor that don't whake up after sleep? Thanks.

No, booting macOS and Windows from separate drives (HDD, SSD or NVMe) will not impact on each other in anyway. This is the best way to multi-boot any mixture of macOS, Windows and Linux. Here is a guide to doing this by Going Bald over at Tonymacx86 -https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-multibooting-uefi-on-separate-drives.198869/

The only thing the drives will need to share is the CLOVER installation on the macOS EFI Partition, which will need to be set as your default boot drive, so Clover can run.

I run nearly all of my systems in this way, with separate SSD's or NVMe drives used for each OS. This is what my Clover boot screen looks like on one of the systems, with three boot icons one for Windows 10, one for macOS Catalina and one for Mojave.

The OS drive will be completely separate and you will not overwrite either disk, not unless you do something really stupid, such as erase the Windows drive in Disk Utility.

No idea what the issue would be with regards the display not waking from sleep.

Many thanks... It's what I have done... I want to tell that for my second build Asrock Z270-itc AC and i7-Skylake. Works everything without any issue. Just install like explained in the tutorial. You get Full Acceleration with High Sierra.... seems like plug and play :)
I have old NVMe 256 GB SM961 with Win 7-64 over and on a Crucial M550 512 GB I have Mac OS.

I want to tell you if somebody looks for 2TB NVMe SSD I have bought a XPG Adata SX8200 Pro M.2 for 310€ on Amazon Spain. Good Quality/Price. I live here in Ibiza.... Hard time now... with C-19....but it's the same all around the world....
