Is LAN enabled in BIOS?

 

If so, the guide posted here provide the required driver for the standard Intel 82579LM card of those Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge E6xx0 generations. You should therefore see your card in the Network PrefPane. You may also see it listed and identify it by MAC address when you type Terminal command:

ifconfig

 

But I suspect you're trying to do something unsupported on a Hackintosh more than anything else...

You're using a recovery image; that's not the recommended way to install macOS. Download a proper installation package and follow our installation guides for that model. In anticipation to eventual questions on the download matter, please refer to our Pick-list. We have no OpenCore-based guides so your original post is quite misleading...

 

As for the Ethernet, I believe you're making erroneous conclusions. You say you don't know what the NIC is, yet I gave you the model specifics. Since you appear to have Windows, you can easily confirm the model yourself.

you have to configure the opencore config and add the kexts and the efi drivers to the list if not it will not load them if they are not stated or enabled in the config file. OC is not as simple as clover is.
