BIOS to black screen

I tried to install catalina on my computer and after an unsuccessful attempt, any time i try to open BIOS on start up it just goes to a black screen. Every troubleshoot i've seen online says it has something to do with the GPU but i dont have one. I'm using intel on board graphics.

Why the ACPI Error...?

So my ancient macbook died and I am trying to turn my i5-6600, b150m pro4s, 16G ram PC into a hackintosh.

After spending hours carefully following the plist instructions, doing the sanity check, I get this screen and no progress...

Why am I getting that ACPI error when I created the ssdt's according to the guide, with SSDTTime?

I've run the Sanity Checker as well, and there seems to be no problems there. What am I missing here? D:

I will attach my EFI for reference.

Hackintosh boots up and then crashes after about a minute of running.

Switching working nVidia installation to iGPU and updating macOS

I currently have a working High Sierra vanilla installation with a GTX 1070 graphics card. However, my job requires that I use the latest version of flutter which requires xcode 11. Unfortunately, High Sierra doesn't support any higher than 10, so I've decided to switch to using the iGPU for my hackintosh and update to the latest macOS version, and I'm having some trouble modifying my installation to allow that.

Firstly, I'm not sure what needs to change in the config.plist to switch from using an nVidia card to the onboard graphics. Also, am I able just modify the EFI partition of the already installed OS, or do I have to modify the installation media and reinstall?

Sorry, kind of a noob at this.

My hardware:

AsRock z370m pro4

Intel i7 8700

Zotac GTX 1070

Clean install of Big Sur leads to BCM94360CS2 bluetooth being very laggy only right after booting up

As title, anyone else with this? Im using an Apple Airport card and everything works just like it did in Catalina. Except for the bluetooth. I tried resetting the module and re-pair my mouse and keyboard. Cleared nvram for good measure too.

When it's done booting and on the login screen the mouse and keyboard are very laggy for about 30 seconds. Then everything is fine and remains fine even when the machine does a sleep/wake cycle. It only happens when booting up.

I had no such issues in Catalina and I did read about Big Sur having bluetooth issues on real Macs too. So I'm not sure if this is due to me or Big Sur. Everything else works perfectly fine as it did in Catalina. I'm somewhat leaning towards a Big Sur bug.

I'm not using any kexts for the module. Booting my Catalina backup results in no lag at all. Big Sur is up to date. Maybe I should try the beta?

Any tips or pointers are welcome.

Edit: Upgrading Catalina to Big Sur also leads to the ~30 seconds of lag.

Should I upgrade from High Sierra to catallina through app store?

Hey everyone! I wanted to run catallina on my old PC and I tried to do it as well. I reached the installer bit I could not see my drives in the installer. I tried every method written in the guide and suggested by you guys but didn't work.

So I decided to install High Sierra with an SMBIOS of MacPro6,1 and telemetrap kext added while installing. I succeeded and I am now running high Sierra.

Note because of the SMBIOS I can upgrade to catallina my directly downloading the installer from the app Store. But if I did it, will it break my system? Is it ok to update through the system update?

My specs: cpu: c2d e7200 GPU: gt710 Ram: 4 gb
