I managed to install Big Sur on Dell Precision T3500 using MP6,1 SMBIOS and OpenCore 0.6.8. Almost everything is working, but some things doesn't:

Here's a list with the issues I have:
- Emulated NVRAM doesn't want to work in any circumstances
- Can't restart, but shutdown and sleep & wake works - I have proper power management using C and P states, speed step works (I compared the values such as temp, cpu speeds, multiplier etc. in windows and they are pretty much the same)
- USB 1.1 devices are recognised only at boot. If I unplug and plug back a USB 1.1 device such as my 2.4G mouse and keyboard or bluetooth dongle, they don't function anymore, macOS doesn't even detect them.
- Wake from sleep sometimes takes about a minute
- Mouse and keyboard (I think all USB 1.1 devices) stop working right after I go to Settings > Software Updates and it starts checking for an update
- Bluetooth USB Dongle is scanning, devices are found, but I can't connect my AirPods or iPhone. It always connects but after 2-3 seconds it disconnects. For the iPhone it displays pairing code and 2-3 seconds after it's paired it disconnects.
- Karabiner Elements stopped functioning I guess it's related to the USB 1.1 issue above.
- OpenCore Picker menu with GUI doesn't shutdown when clicked shutdown button, it restarts.

My build is closer to MP5,1 SMBIOS but since Catalina it's no longer supported, that's why the next closer one is MP6,1.

I attached my OC folder and also the DSL source files for my SSDTs.

Incomplete PR files attached.
Kextcache output, PCIe Devices and IOReg is missing.

Here's IOReg and kextstat. I haven't modified the /S/L/E folder.

To make a copy of IOReg, check the guide linked below.

Emulated NVRAM doesn't want to work in any circumstances
Can you describe any scenario?
Can't restart, but shutdown and sleep & wake works - I have proper power management using C and P states, speed step works (I compared the values such as temp, cpu speeds, multiplier etc. in windows and they are pretty much the same)
Try removing Realtek USB kexts. Those are problematic.
USB 1.1 devices are recognised only at boot. If I unplug and plug back a USB 1.1 device such as my 2.4G mouse and keyboard or bluetooth dongle, they don't function anymore, macOS doesn't even detect them.
USB 1.1 uses UHC Controller and you must rename to a proper one for allowing macOS to load.
Wake from sleep sometimes takes about a minute
The configuration is not as per the guide.
Mouse and keyboard (I think all USB 1.1 devices) stop working right after I go to Settings > Software Updates and it starts checking for an update
And before that, does it works?
Bluetooth USB Dongle is scanning, devices are found, but I can't connect my AirPods or iPhone. It always connects but after 2-3 seconds it disconnects. For the iPhone it displays pairing code and 2-3 seconds after it's paired it disconnects.
What USB Dongle model?
Karabiner Elements stopped functioning I guess it's related to the USB 1.1 issue above.
Did it worked before?
OpenCore Picker menu with GUI doesn't shutdown when clicked shutdown button, it restarts.
Due to incorrect configuration. Note that sleep/wake has always been an issue on X79 motherboards and prior.
