Congrats tinyj! Nothing like the taste of success after chipping away for a month, right!

Question for you: it caught my eye when you said:
... finally able to boot into the installer and do a fresh install with OpenCore.
I think I might be having the same issue with my X570 ASRock mobo where the OC boot loader will only give me the option to reset the NVRAM, reboot and repeat. If that is the issue you were having what was the final solution (if not all the changes you stated above)?

My detailed write up for my thus far dismal failure is here: [FAILED] X570 Taichi, 3950X, Radeon Vega 64 OC 0.5.5 Install
