Hi,

I would like to report that I was successfully able to install Mac OS Big Sur on the MSI GF65 9SEXR.

Specs

- CPU: Core i7-9750H
- GPU: Intel UHD 630 / Nvidia RTX 2060
- Chipset: HM370
- RAM: 16GB

What works

- Bluetooth
- Wifi
- Sleep (Almost, Insta-wake if USB ports are in use. Will update later)
- USB
- Ethernet
- Sound
- Graphics Acceleration (UHD 630)

What doesn't work

- HDMI Port
- You tell me

What was hard:

1. Getting past IOConsoleUser gIOScreenLockState 3, hs 0, bs 0, now 0, sm 0x0.
2. Blackscreen: There were no real blackscreen, but it looked just like. The screen would go full black but after 3-4 minutes would turn back on. That's when I figured out it was the below zero brightness bug.

Use this video patch to get things sorted out. The recommended ig-platform-id wasn't working with this laptop.

Code:
<key>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)</key>
    <dict>
        <key>AAPL,ig-platform-id</key>
        <data>AACbPg==</data>
        <key>enable-backlight-registers-fix</key>
        <data>AQAAAA==</data>
        <key>framebuffer-patch-enable</key>
        <data>AQAAAA==</data>
    </dict>
</dict>

Sound is good? Do the headphone and microphone jacks work properly?

Thanks @jamesst20 for sharing, its help me so much, but i'm having problems in the post-install, I can't make it work without USB Bootloader, it's seems like my BIOS doesn't recognize the EFI when I put it in the EFI partition of the disk that got BigSur installed. Does aynone the same issue?. Maybe i'm doing something wrong in the BIOS config, I also put my BIOS in advanced mode but I dont find anything that can hepl me. Thanks a lot.
