Comments

Sleep- handoff- apple watch- and other apple bloatware not tested. I do not have or use any of them
What is important to me is Thunderbolt connection , wifi , ethernet, bluetooth, audio and graphics and these all work fine

Summary
Everything I need seems to work, not many boot errors still researching what SSDT´s, drivers and kext are essential and witch I can remove. Any suggestions welcome.

What Works
Wifi, Ethernet, TB3 on RESTART (does not require COLD START), Bluetooth, USB-C external drives,
ALL connected drives.

What Does Not Work
Camtasia screencapture software does not work, nor does video capture in Snagit.
Otherwize I try to stay clear of Apple bloatware and have not tested these. AirParrot works fine.
VirtualBOx is a little laggy for Apple Trackpad, and 3 finger move is stupid, but works on finger down and hold.

Benchmarks
A little sub par, but I am no expert. No tweaking (out of the box, and not closing all other programs gives
Chinebench 23 single core = 1206 multi core 16206
Geekbench 5 OpenCL = 45430 Ill test more later


Everything seems to work. It's a good starting point if you want to use OpenCore 6.6 on Big Sur and internal BlueTooth, internal Wifi, Internal Thunderbolt 3 on at least 1 of the TB3 ports.

I would love scrutiny and suggestions

@mannvera,

Regarding Thunderbolt on the X570 Creator, is hot plug working? I believe we have to connect and power on Thunderbolt peripherals prior to warm boot?

@CaseySJ Yes, hot plug is working.

I can restart from OS and it detects my 2BIG external HD,
I can disconnect/or/turn off the 2BIG, and start up/connect it again, and it is detected and volumes mounted.

I can put the machine to sleep, but the Apple Magic Bluetooth keyboard or Trackpad, cannot wake the machine.
I have a separate PC USB keyboard and mouse, and these can wake the machine from sleep.
Same goes when booting, Apple Magic keyboard/trackpad cannot be used to select the OS I want to start up, have to use the connected USB PC ones for only this single function.
As soon as OS is started, I can use Bluetooth keyboard/TrackPad to log in.

PS. OS updated to 11.2
