Hello, I am trying to update from an "old" version of OpenCore (REL-064-2020-12-07) to the latest one (0.7.7 at the time of writing). I am getting stuck because once Opencore loads the Mac OS partition does not show up in the options. I tried the fixes suggested on this github guide but they did not solve my issue.
My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 15 3567, with a BCM94352Z wireless+bt card.
Attached you can find two EFIs one inside "working" directory, is the one I am currently using and works quite well, "update" is the one I am trying to boot from using a usb drive, in this folder there is also the output from when I tried booting with the debug release of OpenCore. I also attached the rest of the required files as described in the FAQ.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Hello, thank you for your quick response. Sorry, that was very stupid of me, I forgot to do the OC clean snapshot from ProperTree.. I just tried doing that and reboot but the Mac OS partition still does not show up. Also, my drive is formatted in APFS so I am not sure I need the hfsplus.efi driver.
How should I go about troubleshooting this? Attached is the "updated" config.plist

shouldn't be an issue but try changing these to -1

Code:
<key>MinDate</key>
            <integer>0</integer>
            <key>MinVersion</key>
            <integer>0</integer>

Ok, now i am able to see the partition, once I boot it though I get stuck when the loading bar is about half way through, and a stop sign appears saying:
support.apple.com/mac/startup

Should I try reverting back to their failsafe/default the other settings?

probably because XhciPortLimit should be disabled
