I did a clean Sierra install on my NUC 5i3RYH. Everything works well, except for WiFi/Bluetooth...
Do you know if there is an USB combo adapter Wifi/Bluetooth that works?

Thanks!

So i installed El capitan on my Intel NUC5i3RYH and used the latest bios. Did everything as the guide said and everything worked out. Bluetooth was disabled as said in the guide, so i tried to enable it to see if it works for my apple keyboard. Weird enough it works without any tweaks. Maybe because of the latest bios version?

Hi gsa390,

Could you share me a copy of your clover EFI folder? I did everything but still got hung after apple log goes crazy during the installation.

Hi Legindary,
What is the latest bios you used?
Does it fix the integrated bluetooth draining batteries quickly?

About to. In prep I have gotten the latest Clover. Per RehabMan's guide here I will also put the apfs.efi in the proper Clover folder and see how it goes. My install is basically stock but for Clover. I use an external audio device so do not apply any audio patches, can't help with those.

Forgot to move kexts from 10.12 folder to 10.13 (whoops). After doing so in the UEFI shell everything seems normal.

There are multiple reboots during the install. First is to "boot to macOS install" as you have surely seen before, and there is a second one for "boot into file vault" or some such. You want to boot each one as they appear (they will be first in your list each time).

To clarify:

  • put apfs.efi in proper clover folder per RehabMan's post here
  • Move kexts to 10.13 or 'other'
  • run installer normally, boot each new boot entry as it appears
  • that's it, works fine
