This is my contribution to the ASRock x299 CREATOR. Have been switched from ASRock x299 OC Formula to this board. Running it with latest OpenCore0.6.7 - and these are the results:

Everything is running smoothly. I have a Radeon RX6900XT in this board, which is currently not fully supported - thats why i have no acelleration in CATALINA and no Display in BIGSUR (<-- have to use Apple Remote Desktop to controll BIGSUR from my original MacBook).

Also BIOS is modified to get full Thunberbolt Support on this board.

I am running this board w/o LILU and LILU-PlugIns, cause i like it as vanilla as possible. Also i am using an ASRock Ultra Quad M.2 Card to run all those NVMe-Samsung SSDs.

All used SSDT-Files are edited by myself to make Hardware appear in System Information. And it is NOT just cosmetic edit - it was extended edit to make thinks possible to run flawlessly.

System is running WINDOWS10, BIGSUR, CATALINA and even MOJAVE fine. Every System is on it`s own SSD and all systems are booting from within the same OpenCore Bootloader so far.

How did you modified the BIOS ? I'm interested

Correct me if I'm wrong : with your custom SSDTs you can skip Lilu.kext ?

if you can manage to your the built-in bluetooth, I want to know ;)

What about the support of the NVRAM ? can you use Startup disk Prefpan natively ?

Modified BIOS rev 1.30 with AMIBMP to free some extra Thunderbolt-Settings.
Normally there are only this setting for Thunderbolt:

Thunderbolt_I.jpg
but with a little BIOS-Edit you will also see this for Thunderbolt:
Thunderbolt_II.jpg
Thunderbolt_III.jpg
And than this will be the ADVANCED-Setting:
Advanced.jpg

Yes: no use of LILU or any of their plugins to make this setup work. But remember:
BLUETOOTH is diabled in BIOS, cause i have no use for it. All external peripherie is
running via USB or Thunderbolt 3.

Today i received beta BIOS v1.40H from ASRock for the X299 CREATOR, which supports C.A.M (Clever Access Memory) aka BAR-Support:

BIOS_140H.jpg - CAM.jpg

But guess what: it would NOT be supported under macOS yet.

yes, this entry is also new and has to be enabled first to make it clickable.
Also i tested my RX6900XT with 4G and CAM active. Guess what: the machine boots up to the desktop, but i dont have any Screen-Output. But i can connect to the maschine via Apple Remote Dektop.

Seems the Apple NAVI-Driver does not support BAR-Support yet.

@Mork_vom_Ork
I don't remembrer : have you succeed to have a working NVRAM.
I would like to use startup disk prefpane to (re)boot on Windows10 or mY BigSur Backup Drive

Another thing : the POST is very long and bios ends up with full of Network Boot entries that I have to disable again and again. Any solution ?
Thanks
