12.6 installs without issue or incident, with OC84, on an essentially-similar Z370-ITX.
I used the oc84 for monterey it .took around 3hr to install. And now display(like colors in negative) is not good. I have iGPU Intel 8700. Should I opt for iMac18,1 or 18,3 or anything else in smbios ? Any help.

iMac18,1 should work. Are you getting video acceleration? Are you using DisplayPort?

My USB ports kext is not configured for iMac19,2. I don't know how your USB ports are working with that system definition.

When you boot in to macOS are you getting graphics acceleration?

What version of macOS are you installing?

Black screen issue is resolved. I just opted for DVI (DISPLAY adapter for short period during installation) port instead of HDMI.
Successfully installed bigSur 11.6 and updated to 11.7 using inbuilt software update utility. No issue at all . Performance is also good. Infact showing the software Update to Monterey.
USB ports are working fine.
I used TP Link W725N wifi with a little trick and now Wifi is working with USB dongle.
Graphics are similar to my Macbook Air.

HDMI has always been a problem for me on hackintoshes.

OC85, updated via OCAT, updates without issue or incident. The only KEXT update that I noted was one of the PS2VoodooController KEXTs, which had an update to 2.31. I have those disabled, so didn't even test or see the change.

Overall, simple, quick, easy, no drama.

The newer versions of PS2VoodooController caused some weirdness for me. That's why I stay on the older version.
