Intel 7260NGW, came with the deskmini off Amazon

I didn't know that you could get some Bluetooth working with an Intel card. Either way, to my knowledge only the BCM94352Z seems to work fine in macOS with the deskmini and the appropriate kexts and patches. I got the Lenovo one from Amazon but the Dell one seems to work as well.

BTW I would like to share a few small tips.

We can get better performance and power management with Intel Speed Shift. Both the H110M-STX and macOS Sierra and El Capitan already support it out of the box for Skylake and Kabi Lake.

Works great for my Kaby Lake! My setup is now more simple, native and snappy. You should disable Speed Step and Turbo in the BIOS.

We can also enable all the ASPM features in the BIOS to reduce power consumption. (Great for HTPC tasks)

For some reason, in order to get video acceleration decoding and encoding working you need to use system definitions like iMac14,1 iMac 16,1 and iMac 16,2, that is, systems that don't include dGPUs like Nvidia or AMD. You can check your video acceleration status with VDADecoderChecker . At least this is the situation with for my Kaby Lake.

Now you can also get on board audio working thanks to AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext, so there's no need to patch any native kext like AppleHDA (You still need SSDT hotpatches to inject the right audio layout, etc) https://github.com/vit9696/AppleALC/releases

And you can also install two more USB 2.0 port in your deskmini

For people who complain that this system includes too few USB ports, this can help.

Im new to this (lol)

Still figuring out the "top left artifact" and the dual monitor fix.

apparently the bluetooth that came with the Deskmini 110 works with my Anker Soundcore XL but doesnt work with my Logitech MX master or MX anywhere 2

USB Type C does work, but Im not sure if its "up to speed"

Great!
Could you please upload your config.plist for memo?

Does Intel Speed Shift have anything to do with sleep since it is related to power management?
(Just hoping to get sleep working on the Deskmini.)

Hey, I have fixed the audio problem.
Now the audio(both output and input) can work well.
View attachment 232970
For Sleep Problem,I choose to never use Sleep function.

For M.2 Wifi card, I use the BCM94352Z(DW1560).

Now everything works well except the Sleep.But I don't need Sleep as it is a desktop build.
So you can refer to my files.
Hi John,
Your post is very helpful. I used your EFI_FIX_TYPEC_VER.zip, after booted by Clover on USB disk, no any other SSD/HDD showed in Disk Utility except the boot USB disk.

Would you please help to suggest?

Settings:
1. Vt-d (Disable)
2. IOAPIC 24-119 Entries (Disable)
3. COM (Disbble)
4. Secure Mode (Disable)
5. USB XHCI Handoff (Enable)
6. Ever put SATA-100-series-unsupported.kext on \EFI\CLOVER\kexts\10.12

System:
- I5 6500
- 8GBx2 GSkill DDR4 2133
- Samsung 830 SDD 120G (SATA)
- Hitachi HDD 500G (SATA)
- Liteon T10 SSD 240G (NVME)

For anyone who might be interested. HDMI Audio is working with KabyLake. Tested with Sierra 10.12.4 btw.

You should set hard disk to AHCI mode.
