@CaseySJ - First, just want to say how great your guide is. I had some experience with Clover hacks in the past but this is my first time using OpenCore. Only hardware difference from your build is I used i9-10850k and Crucial ballistix RAM. I am also only using iGPU for now. Installation of Big Sur 11.1 was flawless and everything seems to work including TB3, all USB ports, sleep/wake, handoff, AirDrop, etc. I did have a problem with sleep when I tried the YOUBO Fenvi card. I traced it to the USB connector. This resolved when I replaced the YOUBO with the Fenvi card you recommended. I have no idea why.

I do have one small issue, Intel Power Gadget 3.7 does not appear to be working for me. The program seemed to install without error but I get the following pop-up when I load the program:

Even after following the above instructions I still get the above pop-op and obtain no readings:

I do recall someone having the same problem on this thread awhile back but do not recall any follow-up or solutions. Its obviously not a major problem but just wanted to run some tests on the system. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks again!

Update: Found solution to this problem as described below.

Found the answer to my problem here: https://osxdaily.com/2019/03/03/install-intel-power-gadget-mac/ . Maybe someone will find this useful.

Just delete them.

Gigabyte has just dropped new BIOS F20a (not sure what happened to BIOS versions F8 to F19, as F7c was the last version on the website), with purported support for 11th-gen Rocket Lake. I haven't tested this bios yet. Will be interesting to see if Big Sur (or even Catalina) will boot Rocket Lake out of the box when it drops later this year.

I think the biggest problem would be the new Xe igpu.

Agreed. It will have different hardware ids etc, I foresee problems in apps that use the igpu. But you never know. But in terms of just running x86 code, should be fine.

People have trouble POSTing with F20a Bios. So perhaps it could be helpful to check out that thread first. They had to q-flash older stable version, so I'll probably hold off for now.
