Thank you very much. What you are saying about the patches is now crystal clear, when I look at it in proper tree. That's right--I don't have a patch for HPET, and the format the XOSI patch is different in my EFI.... I'm curious what will happen if I change that, so I will try.

You mentioned that the "4D1EDE05-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B38C14" does not belong where I have it. Where should it go then? Could you please show me with a proper tree screen shot?

Even though, some things may not be in the perfect format, the computer is still working great (including USB3 and sleep) with the EFI I uploaded above. I would prefer it to be perfect on paper and empirically, so I'll try these changes with USB stick EFI in the next week or so. Thank you for your advice. I really appreciate it.
4D1EDE05-38C7-4A6A-9CC6-4BCCA8B38C14 section goes in the NVRAM section
check sample.plist:

yes, always test on a usb stick first to make sure it works ok

if it doesn't work out well, then you didn't need those edits in the first place :)

In the NVRAM section? How in the world, why in the heck did I put under the delete table in ACPI? That was some kind of careless error. Thank you for noticing that.

Brain fart.....

Don't be too hard on yourself, I have seen a lot worse! :)

Attached is the EFI for i7 Optiplex 7010 DT that enables perfect USB 3, mostly perfect sleep/wake, etc. with opencore and Big Sur. The changes that @Feartech suggested are in the EFI now. If someone wants to try or tweak this EFI for your own system, you will have to enter UUID, Serial number, MLB, and ROM in the platform info section.

Everything works very well just like before and now the format is all totally proper (I hope). Thank you, Feartech!

Thanks, I installed with the original files, and modified with yours on an i7 Optiplex 9010 - now I have 3 out of 4 USB3 ports working in Big Sur 11.6.6

- how can I map the non working USB3 port? I used iMac14,4 instead of MacPro6,1 from my previous config.
- DRM does not seem to be working with the internal GPU - is it even possible with HD4000?
- Your EFI is an upgrade from 0.6.4 to 0.7.X so I followed the upgrade guide for disabling bootstrap and resetting nvram. I don't know if it's required

Just a note on your config.plist. Would be best if you remove the MLB and ROM data so that others don't use your EFI without changing those to their own unique values for their hardware.

I lost Bluetooth when I updated to 11.6.6. I'm using a fenvi FV-T919. The chipset is BCM94360, which is still supported. Other specs to the left and in signature.

If I reset the NVRAM, bluetooth will return and the hardware information will be correctly displayed in the [system information] window, but then on the next boot, both bluetooth functionality and bluetooth hardware in system information disappear. I have to reset the nvram again to get it back, but then it disappears again after the next boot. Weird. What should I be looking at / adjusting to fix this?

CFG lock. If your AppleCpuPmCfgLock config.plist setting is set to no, change it to yes.
Thanks for your response. It is already set to true. I wonder what is causing this from 11.6.5 to 11.6.6. I am using Opencore 0.7.6. Could updating to the latest version of opencore help solve this?
