Thank you for your sharing. This is my adaptation of Menterey based on your successful installation.This thread is dedicated to installing / running Big Sur on the HP EliteDesk 800 G4/G5 Mini PC. This thread is derived from the original Catalina Guide and will gradually replace the Catalina guide.
This thread is not applicable to other versions of the HP EliteDesk PCs (e.g. non-Mini PCs and G1, G2, G3, G6, etc.). It has been reported that this thread and posted EFIs are applicable to the HP Prodesk 600 G4 and G5 Mini PCs as well.
Getting help with your hack
Before you ask for help, do your homework by reading ALL Known Issues here. If you want assistance with your hack or you have an issue that needs to be resolved, please post your question in this thread with your problem reporting files as described here. If using OC, post your sanitized EFI (remove MLB, ROM, SystemSerialNumber, SystemUUID). If using CLOVER, use @black.dragon74 's problem reporting tool here. If macOS's Read-Only protections block your installation of black.dragon74's gen_debug script, please copy the gen_debug script attached here to your Desktop, change script properties with the terminal command 'chmod a+x ~/Desktop/gen_debug' and run the script from your Desktop. While this thread focuses on a solution with OpenCore, CLOVER questions can still be posted in this thread.
