E5570: Struggling getting internet to work during Monterey install


Recommended Posts


I am currently attempting to install Monterey in an E5570 using OpenCore, i had perfect success with Big Sur following the guide below, but the same guide is now failing me for the Monterey install, and I don't know what to do...



There is no ability to connect to the internet, either through Wifi or Ethernet.


Here is my EFI folder if you need to take a look: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1z7Fj_N0aEYfeCK10ydV7nse91lkVrElK/view?usp=share_link


I am not sure what I am doing wrong, here are the specs below of my system as well. The previous guide worked perfect for Big Sur, can someone help me get it working with Monterey?

This doesn't get me into the recovery/install menu, it just shows the apple loading logo for a few seconds, pops up a loading bar, and then crashes back into the opencore boot menu. Do you have any other advice I could follow?

New update, I managed to get Monterey 12.6.3 almost totally working using the "Big Sur" EFI files included in the github repository, but I am still unable to get Bluetooth to work. Can someone help me figure out how to get Bluetooth to work?
