When you say "... created my bootable USB" what specifically does this mean? For example:
  • Did you use GibMacOS to download the full Big Sur 11.5.2 installer package and run the command createinstallmedia in Terminal?
  • If so, please right-click on Install macOS Big Sur (on the USB flash disk) and select Get Info. What is the file size?

I used two different methods to download Big Sur. The first method was to download from AppStore and the second method was to use GibMacOS. After downloading I've used createinstallmedia in Terminal.

The file size of Install macOS Big Sur on the USB is 12.466.032.207 bytes (12,45 GB on disk)

The latest version of Big Sur is 11.6.1. Do you specifically want to install 11.5.2 instead?

There is a solution to your problem that works when all other methods fail, but it requires another Mac or Hack that is not old enough (i.e. on which Big Sur is supported by Apple). That method goes like this:
  • We take the NVMe SSD out of the non-working Hackintosh and install it in a USB 3.0 enclosure.
    • Alternatively we can use a 2.5" SATA SSD in a USB 3.0 enclosure and later clone it to the internal NVMe SSD on the non-working Hackintosh.
  • We connect this USB 3.0 enclosure to a working Mac or Hack.
  • We run Install macOS Big Sur application on the working Mac or Hack.
  • When the installer starts, select the external USB 3.0 disk as the destination.
  • The installer should be able to complete the installation. A couple of reboots will take place, which is okay.
  • When the process is done, copy the OpenCore 0.7.4 EFI to the EFI partition of the external USB 3.0 disk.
  • Disconnect and mount the USB 3.0 disk to the non-working Hackintosh.
  • Boot the non-working Hackintosh and press F12 at the Gigabyte splash screen.
  • Select the USB 3.0 disk.
  • When OpenCore appears, boot Big Sur from the USB 3.0 disk itself.
  • If it works, use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone the USB 3.0 disk to the internal NVMe SSD.
    • Be sure to use Legacy Bootable Backup and Allow CCC to erase the backup disk
  • Then manually mount the EFI partitions of the external USB 3.0 disk and internal NVMe SSD.
    • Copy the EFI folder from USB 3.0 disk to internal NVMe SSD.

I have no problem with installing 11.6.1 but I can't find this version in gibMacOS. If I redownload it from AppStore, will it be on 11.6.1?

Hey guys!
I've been away a while, running my computer on windows 11 for a bit. Had enough of that nonsense, and re-hackintoshed my computer. :)

Used the guide for OpenCore 0.74, and for the most part, I have things working.
The only issue I am dealing with right now is a weird sleep issue (of course its a sleep issue!)

The computer goes to sleep ok and wakes up OK, but after a few moments, there is a ton of input lag.
The mouse cursor moves around the screen just fine, but the UI takes forever to respond to clicks or keyboard presses.
If I try to shut down, or even just leave things alone for a while, the computer will hang, and need to be powered off by holding down the power button.

I tried disabling (and subsequently re-enabling) CPUTscSync.kext as well as USBWakeFixup.
Also disabled one of the USBInjectAll kexts' there are two, a 071 and 076. I disabled 071.

Anyone seen this issue?
