Hey everyone,


I've got an ASUS ROG 270-E, which has both onboard WiFi and Bluetooth (Qualcomm Atheros QCNFA364A).
On Windows the Bluetooth driver reads as QCA61x4A and is disabled (the whole Bluetooth category in Device Manager is greyed out).

In summary, here's what the situation looks like:
- Got High Sierra to work without any issues
- Installed IntelMausi, which for some reason upon rebooting my Bluetooth was gone; uninstalling has not fixed
- Only recently realized Bluetooth is also out on Windows

Uninstalled that kext, reset Bluetooth plists, same for ByHost folder, still no luck. Running 10.13.6.

Any ideas? Any and all help much appreciated! :)

It truly amazes me that this worked, but...unplug the PC entirely and let it sit for half an hour, lol. I know right? It was apparent to me this was a hardware thing if it was affecting my Windows, which is on an entirely separate disk from the Hackintosh. Motherboard/BIOS needed a break I guess. :shrug: Glad this is fixed!
