Somehow my Hackintosh throws a kernel panic while booting Big Sur USB Installer. I've tried other USB-stick, Working EFI from OC (0.6.2) Catalina Installer to Big sur installer. Same fail. I've swapped failing OC EFI-folder and put onto Catalina Installer.; no problems. It boots. I've ditched all custom SSDT's and used files for Comet Lake on Dortania guide along with USBInject.kext. Still same problem.

I've played with config.plist settings. Still no luck. Debug kexts traceback to VirtualSMC. I believe on InsanelyMac a dev explained tracebacks to VirtualSMC is most likely not VirtualSMC itself. So now stuck. What the heck is wrong?

Solved! Someone over at Insanelymac gave me a good pointer. Native Apple USB Bluetooth Dongle caused Kernel Panic. Big Sur is installing as we speak.....

Well maybe you're in luck, because I finally discovered what the problem was. One of my USB devices (bluetooth dongle), was causing the kernel panic. As long as I booted the system without it, the installer goes through without any issues.

Try disconnecting every non-essential device. Bye!
I can't believe it! You're 100% right. I removed several USB-devices.. no luck. I was "okay last resort. Let's unplug genuine Apple USB Bluetooth device" which I soldered on internal USB-header. Boom installer.....WTF! Would apple have dropped support? But would it throw a KP? Odd! Thanks @YoMuS
