Successful Opencore Hackintosh: MSI z490 MEG Unify + 10700k @ 5.1Ghz, 4.7Ghz Uncore, 3466 CL16, 5700XT Nitro+

After days of research and a lot of struggling to get this to boot, I finally completed my (so far stable) Hackintosh, and everything works, even sleep/wake and iMessages! There seemed to be a strange quirk that prevented my motherboard from booting past "AAPL: [EB|#LOG:EXITBS:START]" and there seems to be very little information about it. It would crash after this message, reset NVRAM (possibly due to data corruption) and occasionally reset my BIOS to factory settings. If anyone had this problem and could not get past it as it seems to be a common problem, a boot patch is included with "SSDT Olaria" and included in the config.plist as well. This may not work with everyone's configuration! CFG lock will need to be turned off manually as well since it is not an option in my BIOS. If anyone wants help with their EFI folder, or CFG lock.efi (put this .efi into the OC/tools folder, run it with the boot selector and make the value "0" and verify it with Verifymsr.efi). just let me know and ill try to help + DSDT's. Also let me know of successes too with unusual configurations. Thanks for reading and happy hackintoshing! I'm new to reddit as well so if I'm breaking any rules let me know.
