[Guide] Big Sur in X299 Designare EX with Opencore Boot Loader
Hello Folks! I just finished building my own customac in macOS Bic Sur system. In this time, I used a new boot loader called ‘Opencore’.

If you want to see previous Guide for macOS Mojave I linked it below for your convenience. The Mojave guide including some other MB’s EFIs conveys a common guide not only 300series but also X299series.
