Model identifier gets truncated

It is a minor thing, but it bugs me.


The model identifier gets truncated after I updated to OC and Big Sur (all versions).
Can someone tell me why this is is happening? I am guessing it's an SmBios thing but I can't find anything wrong.


Currently on OC 0.6.9 and Big Sur 11.4 on a Dell Precision 3520 (i5-6440HQ) with the MacBookPro13,3 SMBIOS data.

Check if everything is ok with Sanity Checker


I did repeatedly with latest opencore configurator and OC's own validation tool. (Sanity checker goes only up to OC 0.6.6)


Zero problems...


PS. I saw this, https://www.reddit.com/r/hackintosh/comments/gplals/model_identifier_is_too_schort_macbookpro1/frp8c81/?utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=web2x&context=3


This did fix the truncated model identifier, but completely screwed-up either my usb ports or the hole smbios data (my laptop's Dell info was showing).

The hell with it, if i can't find a specific solution I can live with it.

This is very old problem found in Dell laptops with Skylake CPU. It was resolved in Clover by 


OpenCore developers know this and  must make some analog.
