Trying to copy EFI into a partition, without any success

Trying to copy EFI into a partition, without any success

Hello guys,

I'm following this guide How to install macOS Big Sur , but I get stuck when I have to copy the EFI folder into the partition, because I'm not allowed to copy it.

NOTE: I'm not used an external USB, but an external mini HDD (shouldn't be the same thing?)

Any idea why I'm not able to copy the EFI?

USB3 not working, even with port map, on otherwise perfect Big Sur Clean install on OC

I performed a clean install (and post install time machine backup) of Big Sur 11.5.2 with OpenCore on a machine I had previously running with Mojave and Clover. Everything seems to work perfectly apart from the USB3 ports which seem to not be working/detected with any USB device, but do show up in hackintool and system report. The devices and ports work under Windows and my old Mojave install.

I used a (now slightly modified) EFI specifically designed for my board by a maintainer...

Is OpenCore 0.7.2 support Monterey beta 7? I tried with OC 0.7.4 but can't boot, maybe missing something, cause I follow guide 0.7.2 (this time is newest guide)

Bypass NVidea GPU, but using its HDMI output, how to do it?

I'm trying to install Mac OS Big Sur on my pc (i7 7700k, z270 chipset, UHD 630 and gtx 970), but I'm facing a problem. I don't want to use MB HDMI output, because I need windows dual boot and needing to change the output from MB to GTX and vice-versa every single time isn't worth on my workflow (I also have a real Mac, so, I do not really need the hackintosh). There is a way to use my iGPU to process graphics but maintaining the dGPU as the output on this hackintosh?

Can anyone recommend a dual port 1GbE NIC?

I'd like to to use link aggregation and unfortunately one of the ports on my motherboard doesn't seem to be supported in a bond. Can anyone recommend a PCIe dual port 1GbE network adapter that works either out of the box or with an available kext?
