Smooth update for 300-Series2 in signature and OC 0.7.6

This update may have fixed an issue in Safari 15.4 where the app went crazy - time will tell.

Checked Safari 15.5 box with update - no drama whatever!

Straight-forward upgrade with no intervention needed by me. Took a fair while though and several reboots. All handled perfectly by OpenCore 0.6.8:

Hello guys,
updated to Big Sur 11.6.6 some days ago. So far so good on my Dell XPS15 9570.
The updating process took about 3-4 reboots, 30 minutes, excluding the download which lasted in almost one hour!

Easy, peaceful update with Ivy Bridge CPU and Intel HD 4000 graphics, except my Bluetooth hardware information has suddenly disappeared from system information and I’ve lost Bluetooth functionality of 11.6.5 to 11.6.6, using a fenvi fv-t919. Everything else works great. Specs to the left and in signature.
