Updated OpenCore beyond 0.8.1 to add support for Ventura Developer Beta.

Disabled TRIM on boot to speed up boot, which also applies to VM disks with "discard" enabled (you can re-enable full disk trim on boot by setting SetApfsTrimTimeout to -1 if you like).

Note that Ventura requires AVX2 support, so your host CPU needs to be Haswell or newer, and your CPU type set to Haswell in your VM config.

Updated OpenCore to 0.7.7. Added support for Broadcom USB Bluetooth devices, especially to fix devices that worked fine on Big Sur but stopped working on Monterey.

Updated OpenCore to 0.7.0, added support for macOS 12 Monterey Developer Beta

Changed default SIP mode to fix macOS system updates not appearing (I recommend running csrutil enable --no-internal from the Recovery's Terminal for existing installs, the key is the --no-internal flag)
The Algrey CPU topology patch has been replaced by OpenCore's new ProvideCurrentCpuInfo quirk
The +invtsc CPU flag is no longer required for the guest's clock to run at the right speed (but it doesn't hurt)

Note: After Monterey installation, when you initially get to the desktop, if you shutdown or reboot from this point macOS will get stuck in an infinite loop during boot. This is because the loginwindow process currently crashes when it is displayed. To avoid showing the loginwindow, before you reboot, either turn on FileVault encryption in Security settings, or enable automatic login for your account in the Users & Groups settings.

I've updated the cpuid_set_cpufamily patch to fix a panic on boot on Big Sur 11.3 for AMD CPUs, and Intel CPUs that don't support AVX2.

This patch is in config.plist, so be sure to merge those changes if you're updating from an earlier version!

OpenCore has been updated past the 0.6.3 release and now supports booting both Catalina and Big Sur Final.

Diff in changes of config.plist since v9. If you're updating from a previous OpenCore and want to keep your original config.plist, be sure to at least enable the ForceSecureBootScheme setting.

OpenCore has been updated to the 0.6.2 release and should now support booting both Catalina and Big Sur.

I'm hoping that this release will finally solve the "prohibited" sign appearing when booting the macOS Catalina installer. The only change in this release compared to v8 is a fix to the VBoxHfs.efi driver.

If you still encounter a "prohibited" sign on booting macOS Catalina with this release, use the older v5 release instead. If that fixes it please let me know in issue #2 . If you are able to successfully boot Catalina with this v9 release (as I am) please let me know there too!

Updated OpenCore and all libraries to latest master. OpenCore has been updated beyond 0.5.9 and now supports booting from NVMe or virtio-blk drives ("ScanPolicy" value from old config.plist needs to be updated to take advantage of this).
