my hardware:
msi b450m mortar max
amd 3600x
sapphire rx5500xt oc
ssd: samsung 970 evo

i use opencore 0.61 boot mac recovery img file(BaseSystem.dmg)

i can boot recovery screen,firsr choice language and erase hard drive ,but when i choice install ,i get "recovery server could not be contacted".
I'm sure the Internet is OK in terminal

There are no obvious mistakes in the opencore log
I will attach the opencore log ,mac recovery log(include install log),and the efi i use in the attachment

Problem with the wrong date in recovery. Try entering the command in the terminal: sudo ntpdate -u time.apple.com
in fact,I tried “sntp -sS time.apple.com”,but it not work.And i found the time of mac recovery is UTC+0,my local time is utc+8,so i use date command appoint my local time ,it still not work
