The Acidanthera team that develops OpenCore and numerous other kernel extensions we rely upon has been doing a phenomenal job of preserving and even improving compatibility with both trailing and leading versions of macOS.Hi guys, just a question about the monthly process of updating OpenCore. I am having a hard time finding a forum location where people discuss compatibility of the latest OpenCore configurations vs the latest OS X configurations. Probably a dumb question, but is it safe to assume that the latest release of OpenCore has generally been tested against the latest release of OSX? I am guessing that this is the purpose of monthly OpenCore updates. Thx in advance, you guys rock!
Casey,The following OpenCore 0.7.3 EFI folders have been uploaded to HackinDROM (v2.0.0 or newer needed):

- ASRock X570 Taichi
It's perfectly okay to stay on OpenCore 0.6.4 for the time being. If everything is working, then it's mostly optional to upgrade. Under the hood improvements are regularly made, so at some point it would be a good idea to install the latest. This can always be done initially on the EFI partition of a USB flash drive without touching the main macOS SSD.Is there any harm in using the older OpenCore 0.6.4 with the latest version of Big Sur 11.6
I just updated from Catalina to Big Sur with success (thanks again to Casey's superb guides), and I was on OC 0.6.4 prior to the upgrade. So thinking to keep as is as it is working well....
Where did you find everything that you needed? I am having the same problem as you described. Did you find a guide somewhere for OpenCore that works for our platform?Hi!
Is there any option on how to make a clean Big Sur installation with OpenCore?
Can I just add all the kexts, and other files from post #1 and use then in clean OpenCore installation?
I'm struggling after migrating from Cclover to OpenCore with bluebottle issues and now my hackintosh wont even boot. So I think that it will be better to just format my main drive and install it from scratch?
EDIT: NWM I found everyting i needed. THANKS for your awesome work @CaseySJ!
There's a prebuilt OpenCore 0.7.3 EFI for Z390 Designare located in the link below (can also be referenced from Quick Reference spoiler at the top of Post 1). This EFI does not contain serial numbers, so it's meant for upgrades in which existing serial numbers are copied to the new config.plist.Where did you find everything that you needed?

Hi there guys, I executed a Big Sur install patcher on my Hackintosh trying to create a bootable install USB for an older laptop. It caused my Hackintosh to no longer boot. I'm guessing it somehow changed the EFI partition, or perhaps something else? I used the EFIclone tool to try and copy the EFI partition from my CCcloner backup drive back to my internal SSD (which failed to help), but now, even the CCcloner backup drive quit booting as well. As a last resort,
