Well I took the plunge and upgraded to OpenCore and Big Sur. The switch to running OpenCore took me 1 hour. It was a lot easier than I expected.

If anybody is interested on the OpenCore configuration, let me know.
How's Big Sur running with that motherboard and CPU?

I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77N-wifi with intel HD 4000 (no graphics card) that I recently upgraded to Catalina using Clover. I don't use it that often. I recall it being kind of slow.

Slow? I have never had performance issues running OSX with this system. That's why I have kept it all these years. I do have a GTX 680, but I dont think that will make much of a difference.

I do remember, you must use SSD. My clone backup uses a external USB spinning disk and it's super slow.

I believe this EFI is for OPENCORE 6.8. I do not recommend copying and pasting the files. You need to review the differences between your system. (KEXT) and update the Serial, MLB and UUID. But this is coming from a working configuration for my setup.

Use this for reference only.
