Man, I thought I would never be able to get this dang OS installed on the AMD box. I had to actually do the opposite of much of the advice I received and the tons of tutorials I watched/read. I guess OpenCore is still pretty much evolving along with the OS itself, so I can't really give a general 'what works', but using the latest OC release and starting with Mojave was the ticket for me.

Could you perhaps share your EFI folder? Your configuration is the same as mine-- 3700X on X570, with a Vega 64 card. I've upgraded Opencore to 0.6.4, and updated all my kexts, and applied the recommended patches to Kernel->Patches, and run the Big Sur installer. After the first reboot, when I direct it to boot from "MacOS Installer", I get the white Apple and it just sits there forever.

I've rebuilt my config file a dozen times and re-checked everything. Obviously I'm missing something...
