Has anyone successfully upgraded straight to Monterey from Catalina using clover?
If I were you I would consider switching to Opencore as others have said. The initial setup takes a while. I followed a great tutorial by Chris Titus. Once I created my Opencore USB stick I installed Catalina and it went without a hitch. While I was messing around I then changed my model identifier to one that supports Big Sur, downloaded it and installed it without doing anything else other than that. It was super simple with Opencore.
Still intrigued I again changed my model identifier to one that supports my hardware and Monterey, downloaded it and created a new USB installer using the exact same Opencore EFI and bang 30 minutes later had Monterey installed. Everything worked out of the box on My Lenovo M83 SFF. All I did after that was sort my USB ports out and haven't touched anything since. Had an Apple software update that ran straight from the Software Update and it installed perfectly.
If you can spare the time to learn Opencore it is definitely worth it
