Try the EFI folder attached below. It has been created using OpenCore 0.7.5, with the basic kexts required for your NZXT N7 B550 motherboard, AMD patches for an 8 core CPU, boot arguments for a system using either an RX 5000 or RX 6000 series AMD GPU.

This is what the EFI folder contains:

You need to make sure your BIOS is set correctly to run macOS. Otherwise you may encounter issues when booting. These are the settings you need to use in your bios:

Take particular not of the first 'Enable' item. If you can't find the 'Above 4G decoding' option in your bios then you need to add another boot argument to the config.plist. I haven't added the npci=0x2000 boot argument as I don't know if this bios setting is present or not in your system.

I have not included any WiFi/BT kexts, as they are not essential for first boot and installation of macOS. I have included the kext for your Realtek 2.5GB Ethernet device.

The setup uses the MacPro7,1 SMBIOS.

Assumptions:
  1. You have created a USB installer that contains Monterey 12.0.1, so your RX 6600 XT is recognised and usable.
  2. You know how to copy the attached OpenCore EFI folder to the EFI partition on the USB installation drive.
  3. You know how to select the UEFI partition on the USB from the systems Boot Menu.
  4. You are not a complete idiot.
Best of luck.

Post a screen image showing the kernel panic verbose text. It is then easier for me to know what is happening, or not as the case may be.

@S3mp3rtin Should work with your system, nothing to stop you from downloading the EFI from post #2.
