    GIGABYTE H170N-WIFI / BIOS version: F20

    I just upgraded my BIOS to version F20. It seems to work now. Hier is what I needed to do in the BIOS to get the hackintosh to boot and work properly.

    After the BIOS upgrade I did reset the BIOS (on the motherboard with a jumper on the BIOS reset pins for a second by disconnected power cable).

    After reboot I opened the BIOS settings and did the following changes:

    Save & Exit

    --> Load Optimized Defaults

    BIOS
    Full Screen LOGO Show -- Enabled
    Fast Boot -- Disabled
    Window 8/10 Features -- Other OS
    LAN PXE Boot Option ROM -- Disabled
    Storage Boot Option Control -- UEFI

    Peripherals
    Initial Display Output -- IGFX

    Peripherals /Network Stack Configuration
    Network Stack -- Disabled

    Peripherals / USB Configuration
    Legacy USB Support -- Enabled
    XHCI Hand-Off -- Enabled

    Chipset
    VT-d -- Disabled
    Internal Graphics -- Enabled
    DVMT Pre-Allocated -- 64M
    DVMT Total Gfx Mem -- 256M

    Power
    Platform Power Management -- Disabled

    Hello everyone, I would like to know if is possible use this chip (Mini Pci Wireless Original Broadcom 4324a-brcm1045 Wireless) instead of BCM94352Z chip, because I can not find it in my country (Brasil) and it's a pain to buy from amazon for example. Thank you.

    so my DW1560 (BCM94352Z chip) just arrived today and i installed in on the machine. it both wifi and bluetooth works. I prefer on using the bluetooth mouse but the only problem is during clover boot screen and login screen, it doesn't seem to work. the mouse only gets connected after i enter my password.

    is there a way to fix this? coz i'm thinking of getting a bluetooth keyboard as well but if this doesn't work, might as well stick to the USB keyboard and mouse.

    You can't use a bluetooth keyboard or mouse in the bios.
    As far as I remember a Logitech keyboard gets around this issue with a dongle witch pairs the keyboard with a more basic non-bluetooth mode untill the OS/bluetooth kicks in, but then you need a dongle beside your bluetooth/wifi card.

    I personally use a usb keyboard

    Hi.. Just a question

    If I use Apple Airport Wireless Card on this motherboard via m.2 port, will it work out of the box?
