I also tried macOS 11.1 Big Sur. It worked fine without any problems. But I'm currently using macOS Catalina for better stability and less OS feature updates. Dual-booting macOS along with Windows 10 and PopOS in separate SSDs.

If you have any queries, I would be happy to answer.

I'm also open to feedback and suggestions.
