Yes i change it to Boot Once also, no this is my first time trying it on this built. However, i know is not big sur because i have use it on my Mac Pro 5,1 with open core as well, also on a 2019 macbook pro.

What’s is funny is that the Apollo Twin works like a charm.
I know this is more of a workaround, but have you considered using Apple's FireWire-to-TB3 adapter?

The following is from UAD's website. Just click the image to go to the website.

I can boot Big Sur and the Mojave rescue partition fine with this EFI. So I guess the problem lies somewhere in this particular Mojave install.
The question is, what? It stops very early in the boot process.
So I booted into the recovery partition and chose reinstall MacOS Mojave. This worked. I can boot into Mojave now.

** Public Beta of macOS Ventura Now Available **

If you have upgraded to OpenCore 0.8.2 it should be possible to perform an in-place upgrade to the public beta. As always, we strongly recommend making a full bootable backup first.

Update: OpenCore 0.8.3 pre-release may be necessary.

I have one of those. Unfortunately, Apple drop support for FW when Big Sur came out.
Hm? I just checked my TB3 -> TB2 -> FireWire contraption connected to my ancient RME FireFace 800, and sure enough, this still works.

Had to fight with the .kext installation but that is a known issue in BS.

Good to know. So FireWire is still supported in Big Sur it seems.

Yes, WD SN850 is compatible, but it supports both PCIe 4 and PCIe 3, so it’s more expensive than WD750 that only supports PCIe 3. For this motherboard the SN750 may be a better choice.
