What we know about 12.0.1 so far...
  • macOS Build 21A559
  • Release version is macOS Monterey 12.0.1
  • Install macOS Monterey Application size: 12.13 GB
  • Graphics drivers update
    • First version of macOS without NVIDIA graphics support...
  • Updated bootloader required for installation. Update to latest OpenCore (0.7.4+) or Clover (r5141+) release
  • Updated AppleALC, Lilu, VirtualSMC and WhateverGreen may be required.
  • New system definition (SMBIOS) requirements
    • Official list of acceptable Mac system definitions here.
  • Make sure the software you use has been updated with macOS Monterey compatibility before updating.
Testing is now underway- this post will be updated. Good luck, and let us know how it goes! Report your results here.

There are still some issues with the 7.4 EFI folder I uploaded or at least there is for me. My NUC no longer sleeps and locks up instead after installing Monterey.

EDIT: I'm still testing but it seems that the FakePCIID.kexts are causing the lock ups, bluetooth may or may not also be an issue to resolve so test at your own risk. I've updated the EFI folders to disable loading both those kexts meaning you will lose HDMI audio although I don't think it was working with Monterey anyway.

Yes, there may be a fix for Bluetooth but I’ll have to test it first.

I've already uploaded a working AppleALC.kext that doesn't need the Fake kexts, but you all ignored it. If you want, you can try layout 8 with the latest AppleALC, HDMI should.

Monterey has been working with my NUC for months .

Sorry, must have missed that. I'll give your suggestion a try though for sure. Thanks for the tip.
