Cloning Big Sur possible?

So, I managed to install Big Sur onto a 250 GB SATA 2.5" SSD just to see if I could do it. I'm surprised at how easy it was. But now, I want to install onto a 2 TB SSD m.2 PCIe card and I've discovered that Carbon Copy Cloner doesn't work. Is there a solution for cloning? I'd rather just clone the test install drive to the larger m.2 if I can.

Increase WD SN750 NVMe read/write performance?

Was wondering if anyone had experience with NVMes/SSDs under Catalina. I'd been getting around 3000MB/s read & write on the Aja System Test with a 1TB WD SN850 fitted in my new Gigabyte B550 Vision D board, but not the 7000-5300MB/s read-write rates that the drive had been touted to achieve. Was wondering what settings for improving performance (if any) that I could do.

trouble installing Mojave

Hello. I have been trying to install mojave onto my machine. It appeared that it installed without issue other than pink horizontal lines across the screen while installing on the apple logo screen.
When I try to follow the next step of booting from usb and then choosing the new mojave install, nothing happens. totally frozen on Apple logo screen. So I never get to the step of running multibeast.
Can anyone help in finding what I am doing incorrectly?
Thank you.

Catalina USB Installer still not recognised!

Hi, I've created a USB installer for Catalina, using Unibeast 10.3.0. It successfully created the USB installer, but when I try to boot from it, it won't boot. First, it's seen simply as "Sandisk" in the F12 boot menu...(the equivalent working Mojave installer I have is seen as "UEFI Sandisk") and if I select "Sandisk" it just defaults back to my Win 10 SSD that's in the same PC. It's as if the USB installer was empty, but ofc it's not. I've tried in USB 3 and USB 2 ports and no luck. Any...
