Install Notes:There are a few changes you'll need to make to the EFI before you can boot with it.
First of all open up the config.plist file in a Plist editor like PlistEdit Pro, Xcode or ProperTree. Navigate to PlatformInfo -> Generic and add the required SMBios details.
The Core Count patch needs to be modified to boot your system. It's currently setup for a 6 Core CPU. A detailed explanation on how to edit this can be found here, https://forum.amd-osx.com/index.php?threads/new-amd-macos-corecount-patch-information.1948/
NVRAM: When you first boot with this EFI, Once at the OpenCore Boot Picker, press the spacebar and Reset NVRAM. The system will reboot and take you back into OpenCore.
GPU: If you are using a RX 6800 or any other Navi or Big Navi GPU then add agdpmod=ignore to the boot arguments.
Note: The SmallTreeIntel82576.kext is not working under Monterey 12.x so if you plan on playing around with the new OS for now make sure you have another network device such as WiFi that is supported. See update from 01/11/21 for information.
