Hello everyone!
At first i wanna say im Russian and i can make mistakes in my note. Sry for this and have a good time :)
Lets start
Could you help me with installisation macOS Catalina 10.15.6 because i have some problems
My specs: CPU: Amd FX-8320 3.5ghz/ GPU: Sapphire R9 280 3gb/ 8gb RAM/ Motherboard: ASRock 990fx extreme3

1. Ive formated my usb flash card. (Fat-32, after ntfs)
2. I followed this guide https://dortania.github.io/OpenCore-Install-Guide/installer-guide/winblows-install.html
3. After installisation Gibmacos i open gibmacos.bat i choose opinion and press 'R'
After this i press '4' for install: macOS Catalina 10.15.6 (19G2021)
- 001-36801 - Added 2020-08-12 20:04:02 - FULL Install
4. After makeintall -> i choose my usb-> path the way to recoveryhdmetadmg.pkg
5. Ok, i done it. I have BOOT usb with efi folder
6. I open SSDTtime -> type 4 (Dudmp DSDT) -> enter -> type 2 (FakeEC) -> close
I use SSDT-EC.aml and move it to ACPI
Thats all, only one aml
7. Drivers i delete everything ( without OpenRuntime.efi). Added here new driver HFSPlus.efi
8. Kexts -> i add lillu/whatevergreen/virtualsmc/realtekrtl8111/voodoohda/xlncusbfix/applemcereporterdisavler. Thats all. I dont add nothing more
9. Tools. Delete evertything. Folder is empty
10. I move 'Sample.plist' to My Efi-> OC and rename it to 'config.plist'
11. Open ProperTree and open my config.plist. After it i choose File-OC Snapshot -> Choose 'OC' -> go to File again -> OC clean snapshot -> choose 'OC'
PlatformInfo-> Generic -> SystemProductName -> change to'MacPro6,1' -> Go to opencore vanila guide and change everything for my Bulldozer
Kernel -> Patch (delete this) -> open '15h_16h patches.plist' from 'amd_vanila-opencore'-> paste it to Kernel (33 children)
12. Boot-args (-v keepsyms=1 npci=0x2000 debug=0x100 -no_compat_check)
13. I check it ' https://opencore.slowgeek.com/ ' amd fx - 0.6.0 . Paste my config.plist (https://opencore.slowgeek.com/?file=amdfx060nG9II9&rs=amdfx060)
I made some mistakes, lets correct it. RebuildAppleMemoryMap=False/ SyncRuntimePermissions= False. I save it, its ok now
14. Sanity checker again. 0.6.0 Amd fx paste config.plist (https://opencore.slowgeek.com/?file=amdfx060YiaUG7&rs=amdfx060)
Only 2 mistakes: prev-lang:kbd = 72752d52553a323532 (ru-RU:252) (its ok). And Generic (MLB/ROM/SystemUUID)
15. GenSmBIOS-> Press 1 (install MacSerial)-> Press 2 (select config.plist) -> paste E:\EFI\OC\config.plist -> press 3 -> type 'MacPro6,1'

16. Again https://opencore.slowgeek.com/ and it says everything is good, except 'prev-lang:kbd' and 'ROM' (https://opencore.slowgeek.com/?file=amdfx060sYI4DJ&rs=amdfx060)
17. It's ok.
18. Reebot, change BIOS Settings and try to install.

Did u solved this problem?
yes !, I finally managed to install and boot macos on my system. What I had to do is go to the bios and turn EHCI Hand-off on enabled and everything just worked.

6. I open SSDTtime -> type 4 (Dudmp DSDT) -> enter -> type 2 (FakeEC) -> close
I use SSDT-EC.aml and move it to ACPI
In this step I did everything different ...

7> to make the dump
1> FixHPET
2> FakeEC
4> PluginType
the close and copy .aml files (don't copy SSDT.aml )

yes, there I send it to you. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that our hardware is very different.

if you use my config.plist you have to add the Generic (MLB/ROM/SystemUUID)

Another important thing you have to keep in mind is that it takes a long time. I should wait a while. It happened to me that it worked but I did not realize it because it was stuck but in reality it was that as usb 2.0 is very slow it took a long time to load.
