I have a Lenovo 330S/I3-8130. I installed Big Sur and it was a success but I have a problem with my wifi. I have an Intel 8265 wifi card and it works great with Catalina so I removed all the Broadcom files and added the Intel kext files. I rebooted but got a kernel panic (MACH REBOOT). I put your EFI back and it's working again. I'm thinking that maybe the Intel kext files are causing the kernel panic so I just removed the Broadcom files from the KEXT folder and removed statements from Kernel using Property Tree (Snapshot). I did not add the Intel kext's to the KEXT folder yet. Same issue, what could be causing this issue?
Thanks!
Make sure whatever changes you make to the kext folder is reflected in the config.plist. You also need to disable SSDT-EC-USBX.

Hi! Thanks for the guide, and your efforts on creating it. I'm trying to install the Big Sur on my 330s-14IKB, but stuck with a reboot during the install process (a bit after 50% done), no error is shown, just reboot, and opencore showing the install usb as the only boot option. Can you please help me on this?

If this is your first install I would advise you to only have essential kexts like VirtualSMC, Lilu and Whatevergreen in the kexts folder at least till your installation is complete. You can put the ACPI patches and remaining kexts later. Remember to update your config accordingly.

I have an update on my problem. I have tried to install on sata hdd instead of nvme ssd, and installation went smooth, I was able to boot into the system. I also tried to migrate the os to my ssd using clonezilla, but after the migration, system is not booting. Now when I know that it's an nvme related problem, do you have any ideas on resolving it? Thanks.

Have you included the NVMe kext? Could also be down to NVMe drive compatibility.

Thanks for this erinviegas. Used your mojave and catalina guide for my laptop and it worked just fine. Got an SSD coming tomorrow so that if anything goes wrong I can just swap it to catelina again (need it for college on 23rd) so will report back soon, hopefully with good news!

Thanks for the guide, I have a Lenovo 330s-15IkB. I'm going to buy a DW1560 and give this a go, I've already replaced the optane with a 512GB NVME drive
