OpenCore Catalina boot panic

Bought the hardware for a Catalina build almost 2 years ago and never got around to doing it. My current machine is still running El Capitan so it's definitely time for the upgrade. Needless to say, it's been a while since I have played around with installs.

Big thanks to nottooshabby, flavioalves, nathanh0, and G5Heaven for their posts on Gigabyte Z390 builds. Have gone through the whole Dortania guide and played around with various entries but can't seem to get things to the install...
