Nothing like that. I haven't had a Hackintosh since 2015 which was originally made with multibeast, so all this clover stuff is quite new to me. Today I got my 5820 up and running with Catalina and Sylvain83's EFI. I appreciate the effort!

The main issue I was having was random black screens while configuring the BIOS. This computer originally shipped with a Quadro 4000. Sticking a Sapphire RX580 into it had mixed results just trying to get to the clover boot screen to install OSX. A lot of the time just black screens with the system constantly restarting (probably the dell system stuff trying to figure out what was going on). I ended up installing OSX using Clover 5119 with Sylvain83's EFIs with the Quadro 4000 installed, then swapped it out for the RX580 with the clover USB assisted boot into OSX to do the final clover configuration.

Add your personal SMBIOS data(MLB, ROM, BoardSerialNumber, SerialNumber, SmUUID, CustomUUID) in config.plist. This is working Clover EFI folder from my Supermicro X11SRA-F, so no guaranties on other C422 machine
Please test and post results.

Hello @yapan4

I think it's okay. I successfully install Big Sur on another disk.

I finish to install and I post my clover EFI

Thanks a lot !

Fine.
The previous versions of MACOS should also work.
Possible sound problems, USB, network, etc. Then there will be needed more information from your side...

If you need Open Core config for our Hackintosh - @etorix is Real Guru concerning workstations+Open Core and just a smart and kind man.

Good luck.

I was having trouble with USB with Catalina. Only sound is missing at this time.

There's no alternative to trying all possible ALC layouts until you find the one which works best for your specific board. This cannot be done remotely.

How is the GTX 1080 Ti doing in Catalina or Big Sur?

I know. So take my question as a hint to @Sylvain83 that he needs to slightly update his profile. ;)
