Catalina 10.15.3 working fine on SSD, but would not boot after install on NVMe drive (error loading kernel cache 0x1)

Hi everyone,

I have run into a frustrating problem here.

My hardware:
MSI x399 Meg Creation
2990WX
64GB ram @2933Mhz
Radeon 7
Sata: Samsung 130GB SSD
M.2: Samsung 970 Pro 1TB(latest firmware)

Using OpenCore 0.5.6
(NVMeFix NVMeDxe installed)
I have successful installed OSX catalina onto my 130GB. It works flawlessly.

and then I figure I should do it on my M.2 drive. It installs flawlessly, at the last stage of installation, it naturally restart and thats it.
I can not boot into this newly installed OS on the M.2 drive. it keeps throwing: "error loading kernel cache 0x1"

I have tried deleting the prelinkedkernel from recovery partition. Tried rebuilding cache(I have not installed any kext into L/E).

All this time, I can use the same boot USB to boot into catalina on my sata 130Gb SSD working just fine.

 

attached is my EFI folder. I have tried all the suggested SMBios iMacPro1,1 MacPro6,1 MacPro7,1

 

is this ruled out that samsung 970Pro doesnt work?

Please help. :(
