Updated to the latest Beta. Installed like a charm. Working and feeling more and more solid now. This is my first OS with OC and feels more solid than any of my previous Clover based hacks where at least one thing or the other wouldn't work. But with Big Sur everything is working right out of the box! I would already have made it my primary working system had it not been for the fact that a couple of my Autodesk products aren't working yet.

PS: The Big Sur boot disc did get renamed to Preboot like last time. Need to install/uninstall the Intel utility again to fix it.

My haswell based hack initially upgraded without any problems, the attachments refer. On completion of the upgrade one of my screens sported a severe pink tint, as it was not recognized anymore as a native RGB monitor. I had to do some serious reading first to enable me to re-apply the necessary EDID patch to the normally read only Big Sur system volume.
Note also that I have chosen the icons, displayed on my Haswell boot screen, to reflect the type of drive the respective operating systems reside on.

Greetings henties

Thanks, the tip worked just fine, I finally could test BigSur in my Z490+Corei9+Radeon VII!!!, I still can notice a few problems, but Apple Music is working and Movies too, I can see DRM movies and listen to the music, in safari I can watch Netflix in Safari, until now is working good, but still some problems, some glitches, thanks again...

And... after a week, it's OK for me. I changed the bootloader (bye bye Clover, hello OpenCore - thanks dorthania !) and I update with the IOKit Daemon (kernel manager) problem, juste resolved by blindowl. And now everything seems to work except Sidecar (that did not work on Catalina either).
