What am I doing wrong? 0.6.5 and 0.6.6 have been a disaster for me!

Ever since I first started Updating OpenCore my hackintosh has become more and more unstable with each passing upgrade. Since updating to 0.6.6 I have constant kernel panics and reboots and a very slow startup time. On 0.6.5 I only had one screen working. I have trawled through the dortania guide, followed it to the letter and also started completely from scratch with 0.6.6 to no avail. I am still getting the random reboots. I assumed that this was a problem with macOS Big Sur 11.1 and 11.2 not wanting to work on my hardware. So today I was going to give up and remove MacOS from my computer. However whilst looking for a blank flash drive I found one with Open Core 0.6.2 EFI on it. I started up the machine with it and voila a perfectly working system. No kernel panics, both screens working, no DHCP problems, etc. It even boots in 8 seconds as opposed to 45 using 0.6.6. Now I see that there are people on here who are not having these problems so I would assume that this is not a fault of Opencore. So my question is, "What on earth am I doing wrong???"
