    I don't know what could be more compatible with hackintosh than the original WiFi/BT card from Apple.

    Ok I need some help, any advice is appreciated!
    So I just received my new BCM94360CD and my PCIe x1 Adapter. I know from reading past comments, you're only supposed to use it in the x1 slot because some boards disable WiFi + BT on one PCIe. However my motherboard doesn't have an x1, so I use my x16.
    In Windows, I have both BT + WiFi working, so that means my board does not disable BT + WiFi on one PCIe. However in macOS, I can only get WiFi working (Bluetooth says it "Can't find any information" under System Report)

    Any known fixes or better ideas?
    My mobo has 2 PCI 32-bit slots. If I bought an adapter, could I get it working there?

    Edit: Install BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext

    Hello I am trying to buy the adapter and the wifi card but in the wifi card because I seen there are 2 models the BCM94360CD that is approximately 99 dollars and the BCM94331CD that is approximately 25 dollars to the 2 seems the 2 are compatible but I would like to know which of ls 2 Is better and what are the differences thank you very much and sorry for my English that is google.

    Hey Tonymacx86. Have you found a fix for the ivy bridge customac with the Adaptor for the Apple Bluetooth/WIFI card? On my H77N-WIFI the Adaptor works perfectly fine but I'm a bit sceptical about leaving it stuck up without screwing it in.

    Thank You.

    ... is it working?

    Any modifications or kexts needed?

    I am wondering if there is a chance to fit this card in a low profile PCIe slot. It seems they don't sell a low profile version but maybe with a little modification it could fit!?
    Can you tell me how wide it is (measurement of the board itself)?

    I have put it in the hackintosh and WIFI works out of the box, bluetooth does not. However, I haven't done the setup for handoff yet :) Working out other problems on a new install...

    @VioletDragon: what did you do to activate bluetooth?

    Bluetooth requires USB. Probably a USB problem. Attach ioreg. [Guide] How to Make a Copy of IOReg | tonymacx86.com
