I'm inside macOS! I disabled VT-d.... Thought darth boot flag would do that tho. Now let's see if I can get TouchPad, keyboard, audio and graphics to work. And without safe mode.

Everything works again. It were settings in VBM that stopped macOS from booting. I'll try later which settings won't work bus I'm nog inside Big Sur. Only thing now is fixing the slow boot. @serdeliuk said it may be debug mode. I'll see what is taking macOS so long. I do have Some ideas. Disk2s1s5 orso gives during startup an error: device is not readable or something like that. That disk is the main disk of macOS, the disk itself. Can't Mount that because it is not a partition.

Best way to get rid of all VirtualBiosMod settings is to go to BIOS and load BIOS defaults or optimized ones, this will bring back all settings to factory defaults, including startup sound :) so bios settings needs to be readjusted accordingly

Found it. It's when the memory size is on 2048MB. In other words, I can't use anything higher than 1024MB.

This is which memory? Video? What happens when is greater than 1GB (1024MB) ? Can you give more details please?

In VBM there's that option. Click F to cycle through memory sizes. If on 2048MB, HID LEGACY SHIM 2 or VoodooGPIOCannonLakeH: getting GPIO data. That last is from VoodooI2C getting the data of the TouchPad. So if I select more VRAM (at least I think it is, laptop's not on) it can't load TouchPad? I also found its about videocard which does make very good sense. If 2048MB, macOS is stuck at Intel videocard.

I don't recommend changing VRAM in bios or patching it on config.plist Its not beneficial if you don't have 4k screen. Use default VRAM for more stable and better experience.
