Hello again, I have made a new EFI using OC 0.7.4. For ACPI I made essential SSDT's by SSDTTime and also I loaded the most recent kexts + I modified the necessary Quirks to correct the problems with EC lock.
The booting process of Big Sur starts but unfortunately after a number of steps stops due to a panic. I must have missed something important. Could you find a spare minute to look at the enclosed dump of the screen and my EFI directory. Thank you very much for any help, hints and suggestions. Regards, Henryk
Try attached OpenCore EFI. post screenshot/picture of any error message you get or kernel panic.

About above mentioned Quirks that worked for you..
EnableWriteUnprotector is already set to True and SyncRuntimePermissions is set to True (needed for Windows) in config.plist from Post #1.

AppleXcpmCfgLock is already set to True (CFG-Lock workaround), AppleCpuPmCfgLock is only needed for macOS Yosemite 10.10.x or older.

TL;DR : I'm not sure which specific Quirk actually worked for your laptop.

The attached above EFI_OC-v0.7.4 produces totally blank screen from the very start. No error or other messages at all.
Thanks, Henryk

OpenCore Boot Picker is not visible either?

No, OC Boot Picker is not visible. Usually there is a few lines of text before the Picker appears but not this time, totally black screen from the moment the UEFI starts the chosen EFI.

Debug version show some log before boot-picker, i used release version. It will show BIOS logo or black screen (depending on your boot order) before the boot picker is loaded. you can try Debug version if you want, just replace all the files with Debug version and enable debugging in config.plist

I forgot to add verbose boot flag so add "-v" to boot-args property in NVRAM section of config.plist as well.

Ok, I copied all the files to OC debug version (also added -v) but I cannot find the place in config.plist where to enable debugging, Anyway, now we have soma logs before picker starts and indeed there errors in configuration (see the attached screen image). I am enclosing the debug version EFI too.
Thanks for all your help - Henryk

Misc -> Debug in config.plist

Also config.plist was placed in wrong directory, it should be in OC folder.

Try attached EFI, enabled debugging and verbose boot.

Yes, my fault, I haven't noticed that I put config.plist in a wrong place. Now, the last EFI starts OK but still there is a bug. See the enclosed debug file. Maybe we are very close to a success. Thanks very much, I am learning a lot from you.

I have changed SMBIOS using OpenCoreConfigurator and everything runs now more than perfect.
Thank you very very very much.
