This esentially an ultra-simplistic version that is stable without the use of a deploy or complicated file installations and copies.
You can easily view all the SSDT patches along with configuration files for the bootloader as they are all documented clearly in the files.
This does include a copy of Clover, which of course I do not contribute to and am only responsible for the provided files, patches, and kext placements
This guide provides a working setup with little knowledge of the topic and without "optimization" (because often they can break things). But, it is fully functional and preforms properly and is stable
Make sure you are using DW1560 for wifi or else KP. If not using remove BRCM kexts from CLOVER>kexts>other.
Disable Secure Boot
INSTALL (VERY IMPORTANT)
Due to structural changes in the setup of apple's Big sur, this EFI cannot boot the installer it can only boot into a system / device that has already been created and setup.
To do this, you need to install Big Sur to a virtual machine (lots of guides online) and then create an dmg of that system, and restore it onto your HDD using the 'dd' command
There are various guides online how to get this virtual machine setup complete.
You can then use the attached EFI folder to boot and use macOS big Sur
You can use this video to show you how to get your macOS pre-installed onto your hard drive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMU3nhcbWHw
Boot Entry Setup
Due to the fact this BIOS is locked down pretty heavily, reccomended to use Windows to find a free tool to add UEFI boot entries
Messages and Facetime
Gnerate your own Serials, Board Numbers, MLB
There are various guides online to do this and as default they're set to essentially Null (Fakeserial)
This is fairly straightforward and there is lots of external recourses, or you can contact me for support.
Headphones and Audio
All audio from speakers should work perfectly along with Bluetooth and USB audio
no internal mic

I have been following the guide at https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/installer-guide/mac-install.html
Currently I’m on step “Gathering files” I’m not to sure which SSDTs I should use for my system to work properly.
Also this will be dual booting with Windows 10 Pro
So I'm new to OpenCore, I've been a Clover user for too long but it's finally totally failed me after a motherboard upgrade, I couldn't boot to Mac OS.
So I gave OpenCore a go using the basic config and boom, booted first time! I'm an instant convert!
The main problem I have is that I have a triple boot machine with Windows 10, Ubuntu and Mac OS on three separate drives. With OpenCore I can ONLY boot Mac OS. It gives me an option of "BOOTCAMP Windows" but if I select it it boots to the Ubuntu GRUB menu (??) and then won't load the linux kernel! There is no option that tries to boot Windows.
It looks like multi-OS support is not a priority right now, is this correct? Is there anything I can do to help test/code/progress this aspect of the project?
I used this command: diskutil info disk0s2 | grep -i "Partition UUID" | rev | cut -d' ' -f 1 | rev
But I accidentally removed the wrong disk and now my main windows drive is not appearing in the bootloader. I can't figure out how to get it back. I tried resetting my windows drive, but I kept getting an error. I also reset my mac and reinstalled Catalina.
