Failing to boot with OpenCore

It's not getting past the initial boot. Without Debug it just prints the message:

"Failed to Load configuration!"

and with Debug an earlier possibly problematic message is:
"BS: Failed to locate bootstrap protocol - Not Found"

Followed a combination of these guides: https://youtu.be/l_QPLl81GrY https://khronokernel-2.gitbook.io/openc ... top-guide/

Anyone have an idea what might be missing? Configuration in signature.

What does your EFI layout look like? Is your config.plist file in the right place?

So...turns out the file name was actually "config.plist.plist". :problem: Gotta love windows...

Now it's getting past the boot-choosing and the initial boot process, but seems to have a problem loading the kernal?

The last 3 lines are:
Lilu rtc: @ rtc read failure 1 bytes from 180 E00002C2
VirtualSMC efend: @ no extra rtc memory is present for key erase
AMFILoadTrustedKe

And then it just stops

Also above those lines getting:

VirtalSMC efend @ authenticated restart support is unavailable
HID: Legacy shim 2
RTC: Only single RAM bank (128 bytes)
HPET: map device registers failed
RTC: lost battery power - time may be invalid

Are you using the EC SSDT? You can find it in the OpenCore guide.
