If I enable it I get KP that aren’t readable. So I can’t provide information here.
Did you also try enabling under Quirks.

That did the trick! The installer boots now. I can choose where to install Big Sur. But unfortunately the Installer stops and it freezes at the progress bar. I tried several times. Then I recreated the installer on an internal data harddrive (optical) but it’s the same. I tried it with the Catalina installer as well but here also no luck. It freezes at a certain point in time. I put my EFI and config.plist at the status quo at this post.

you need to run ocvalidate on your config.plist and then sort out the amendments in your config.plist with the sample.plist file

also try installing to internal hard drive

Ocvalidate? Is that like the sanity checker?

This ist the output of ocvalidate on my Config.plist:

OCS: Missing key AllowRelocationBlock, context <Quirks>!
OCS: Missing key Patch, context <Booter>!
OCS: Missing key ForceSecureBootScheme, context <Quirks>!
OCS: Missing key SetApfsTrimTimeout, context <Quirks>!

OpenCanopy.efi is loaded at UEFI->Drivers, but Misc->Boot->PickerMode is not set to External!
CheckMisc returns 1 error!

OpenUsbKbDxe.efi at UEFI->Drivers[4] should NEVER be used together with UEFI->Input->KeySupport!
CheckUEFI returns 1 error!

Done checking /Volumes/EFI/EFI/OC/config.plist in 4 ms, but it has 2 errors to be fixed

And the output of the Sample.plist in OC distribution untouched is this:

"Done checking"

Is ist right that i just have to fix these two errors:

Running you config.plist through the Sanity checker turns up a few issues..

not really as such, it is part of OpenCore when you download it, drag the ocvalidate to an open terminal window and then drag your config.plist in there

it checks to make sure the new section are there and if any parts needs to be removed, amended or anything that needs to be added to the config.plist

then you would check over the sample.plist side by side with yours and make any changes that are needed, then you can re run the ocvalidate tool to make sure no errors appear

best to always do this when upgrading OpenCore to save a lot of issues whilst booting :)
