Have difficulty installing Big Sur on my Ivy Bridge machine. I'm posting detailed error and what have I tried. I have tried everything I can think off.

Thanks for your time!

I've been trying for installing Big Sur Consumer Preview on my Catalina machine (swapping SSD so my catalina is still safe) this whole week. I'm really stuck and don't know how to proceed.

My machine:

  • Ivy Bridge i7-3770
  • RX 460 Sapphire
  • Gigabyte GA-H61M-DS2 Rev 2.2

The installation went alright, but always got kernel panic on first boot (where you put username and stuffs). Detailed error log is here: pastebin.

Snippets at the end of the error log:

I don't even know what cause the error.

What have I done:

  • My EFI work perfectly fine in Catalina (at least used to, before the modifications below)
  • OpenCore 0.63 pre-release and all kexts are the latest
  • Already ACPI patched for EC and CPU
  • Config.plist is all green on https://opencore.slowgeek.com/
  • Changed the SMBios to MacPro6,1 for BigSur
  • Added vsmcgen=1 boot-args for BigSur
  • set SecureBootModel to Disabled
  • Tried this method even though my motherboard is not an X99. Downloaded SSDT-UNC.dsl, compiled it to aml, put to acpi folder and put it inside config.plist. Got a same kernel panic and barely change the error log.

Here's my EFI, both debug and not debug. The files in ACPI are named like generic ACPI files since I was too lazy to fix the config.plist. They are actually dumped from the computer.
