Error: Bootloader Isn't Installed | NVRAM isn't native.

I have the latest version of Big Sur Beta 11.0.1 (20B5012d) with OpenCore 0.6.3 which is working perfectly. However, I noticed a new problem after the last update.


Hackintool "Boot" tab doesn't recognize the bootloader and I get this:




I don't have Clover anywhere on my computer/disks. It's a completely wiped clean installation of Big Sur using OpenCore.


If I manually change Bootloader dropdown to OpenCore, I see this:




Also, when I try opening OpenCore Configurator, I see this message:


The bootloader looks like it is not installed or your NVRAM isn't native.




Now, I know that I have NVRAM, because, in previous versions Hackintool did pick the right bootloader. The problem hs started only after a recent clean install of Big Sur.


Also, I checked for NVRAM with this:


1. Manually set a variable with sudo nvram foo=bar 
2. Used nvram -p | grep -i "foo" and got foo bar as output
3. Rebooted, and tried nvram -p | grep -i "foo" again and got back foo bar again


Any suggestions?


Also, attached is my config.plist (personal info removed) in case that helps.

By default, OC doesn't announce that it is there. You are probably looking for ExposeSensitiveData under Misc->Security. You can set it to a non-zero value as seen below in the spoiler, taken from the configuration.pdf for OC. If ExposeSensitiveData is set to zero, this is the normal behavior with those apps.
