So that list was from back in the CLOVER days and before the Thunderbolt controller flashing was a recommended config.
Thunderbolt firmware flashing has never been recommended in general!! It is only for special cases. Please refer to Quick Reference spoiler:

** OpenCore 0.6.6 EFI for Designare Z390 **
Supports Mojave, Catalina, and Big Sur
Please do not quote this post in its entirely. Use a link instead.

Requires OpenCore Configurator 2.27.0.0 or Newer

URGENT: Set OpenCore Configurator "Preferences" to OpenCore 0.6.6 Release Version

The formal release of OpenCore 0.6.6 has arrived, along with an update of Lilu, WhateverGreen, AppleALC, and VirtualSMC.

This EFI contains the following changes:

Bootloader / Kexts:
All of the items listed below are official builds.
  • OpenCore 0.6.6
  • Lilu 1.5.1
  • WhateverGreen 1.4.7
  • AppleALC 1.5.7
  • VirtualSMC 1.2.0
  • New and updated OpenCore "Resources" files (images, icons, audio, fonts) required by latest OpenCanopy
config.plist Changes:
  • Misc --> Security --> SecureBootModel --> Disabled (change to Default for OpenIntelWireless)
  • Misc --> Security --> BlackListAppleUpdate --> Enabled
  • Misc --> Boot --> PollAppleHotKeys --> Enabled (allows Verbose mode to be enabled by pressing CMD-V at Picker)
  • Misc --> Boot --> PickerAttributes --> 0x25 (allows mouse control in Picker)
  • Misc --> Boot --> BootProtect --> This feature has been replaced by LauncherOption, which has been set to Full
  • UEFI --> Drivers --> HfsPlus.efi replaced with OpenHfsPlus.efi <-- 04 Feb 2021: Due to serious problem with OpenHfsPlus.efi, we have gone back to Apple's own HfsPlus.efi
How to Use:
  1. Find a USB flash disk with an EFI partition, or format the USB flash disk in Disk Utility with Scheme = GUID Partition Map and Format = MacOS Extended (Journaled).
  2. Mount EFI partition of the USB flash disk.
  3. Download the attached ZIP into the top level of the EFI partition of the USB flash disk. When the file is unzipped, there will be a folder called OC-066-DESIGNARE-Z390.
  4. Rename this folder to EFI, otherwise the system will not boot.
  5. Use HackinDROM to transfer PlatformInfo from existing OpenCore config.plist to new version. Please follow the guide by clicking here and referring to the screenshot below.

After the modified config.plist has been copied to the EFI/OC folder of the USB flash disk, proceed as follows:
  1. Reboot and press F12 at the BIOS Splash Screen. When the BIOS Boot Menu (not OpenCore Picker) appears, select the USB flash disk.
  2. Warning: It is necessary to reset NVRAM one time prior to booting macOS. This can be done by pressing spacebar at the OpenCore Picker and choosing Reset NVRAM. On multi-boot systems, select the default startup disk in System Preferences --> Startup Disk.
  3. At the OpenCore 0.6.5 Picker menu, select and boot the internal macOS disk.
  4. If everything works correctly, copy the new OpenCore EFI folder from the USB flash disk to the EFI partition of the main macOS SSD.
CAUTION:
  • If you are using a custom Thunderbolt SSDT or any other custom SSDTs or Kexts, please update your config.plist accordingly.

Looking good! Some comments:
  • Each item in the list takes up a bit too much space. Please see screenshot below of EFI Agent.
  • No scroll bar.✅
  • No whitespace on left and right sides. Icons should not touch the edges.✅
Could you please try build 3 below

This one seems to crash or quit as soon as I click on it in the menu bar.
Oh! that is not cool!
Just tied on the Hackintosh and a real Mac, it works fine.
Can you give me more details about your current system please?
