Thanks for looking into this. Now with correct IoRegistryExplorer, I hope.
Cheers!

I saw that someone looked at my files, but fear that you did not find the solution easily?
@RehabMan or @toleda - do you have ideas?
Should I summarize again?
Thanks!

"Problem Reporting" files are incomplete.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.164990/
Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Hi all:

I have read posts about Intel's CNVi and I'm looking for a 8-th gen ITX motherboard for my next hackintosh build (i3-8100 or i5-8400). I think a B360 motherboard is suitable for me but I worry about M.2 WiFi/BT compatibility. I don't really know much about the limitations that CNVi causes and I wonder are there still chances to replace built-in M.2 WiFi/BT module with something like DW1560? ITX motherboards normally have only one PCIE slot and I want to reserve it for a graphic card. Are all 8-th gen motherboards comes with CNVi M.2 slots? (then DW1560 can't work in these CNVi M.2 slots)

For example, here are all the choices of B360 ITX motherboards and some emphasize "CNVi" and others don't.
  • Gigabyte B360N AORUS GAMING WIFI => Intel® CNVi interface
  • Gigabyte B360N WIFI => Intel® CNVi interface
  • Asrock B360M-ITX/ac => Intel® 802.11ac WiFi Module
  • MSI B360I GAMING PRO AC => Intel® Wireless-AC 9462 card
  • ASUS ROG STRIX B360-I GAMING => Intel Wireless-AC 9560NGW

It seems that there is no way DW1560 can work on the two Gigabyte boards but how about others? How can I tell if DW1560 can work on a 8-th gen motherboard or my only option is a Z370 motherboard?

Thanks in advance.

Working M.2 Broadcom WiFi/BT in M.2 CNVi:
1. Asus ROG Strix Z390-I Gaming
2. ASRock Z390 Phantom ITX/ac

Other Asus and ASRock Coffee Lake motherboards likely work. Gigabyte Coffee Lake motherboards do not work.

Thanks again, I thought I had read everything carefullyy in post #1, but must have missed something.
So here it is now - hopefully in the way you expect it.

Very open for comments for improving this Hackintosh.
Main problem for now as written before:
bluetooth is not working with BCM94360HMB
It was with Sierra.
Thank you very much in advance!

Maybe you don't have current/latest BrcmPatchRAM kexts installed?
