This is how config.plist will appear in the OpenCore Configurator. It's straight from EFI to USB Boot. I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what or where.
The above screenshot looks good. Now reset NVRAM twice and try to boot and you should see the installer.

NVRAM reset performed 3 times but the result is still the same, the boot program fails

All the kexts I used were recommended here, but I'm not sure they were the latest versions. Maybe you can give me a link to the latest cookies? Do you mean OC (OpenCore)? then version 0.7.8.

You can find their official repositories on Github. Yes, OC means OpenCore. OC in short ;)

If the kexts are latest, you need to save the EFI. Create macOS Big Sur 11.2.3 Bootable USB. Use the saved EFI to boot.

Attach your EFI+BIOS Settings to confirm the above step.
