sorry for late reply, but i think wifi combo card is a bit more of a hassle to work, provided you didnt upgrade to 10.10.3. toleda's solution works perfectly until 10.10.2

Did you, or is anyone using the M.2 slot? If so, as a boot drive or otherwise?
I am currently doing some research in preparation for building a gaming Hackintosh (mainly for WoW) and have been looking at the ASUS ROG Maximus VII Impact mini ITX board; and I read this from ASUS' literature…

To paraphrase; if you stick a M.2 SSD in there, you will take your 16x PCIe slot down to an 8x slot…

I DO think you could boot though…!

I was excited about the M.2 slot myself, as M.2 SSDs are WAY cheaper than regular 2.5" models, and supposed to be a bit snappier on boot…

1150 works; see Post #1, Realtek ALC AppleHDA: Audio ID: 1 or 2.
Asus Rampage VII Impact, everything works with Clover/Chimera - ex. M.2: native CPU/GPU PM, WiFi/BT, HDMI audio, 10.10, 10.11 Public Beta, etc.

I managed to get everything working with the exception of the bluetooth. Wifi is working okay, but could you please let me know what kext you used to get bluetooth working on the M7I. I have an old Apple Bluetooth keyboard I would love to be using with this build if I could just get bluetooth working on the Asus.

Thanks.

hello !

I have the same configuration but i can't use sound (SUPREME FX Card) and WIFI+BT (ASUS COMBO IV Card mPCIe).

Can you help me ?

I'm using MULTIBEAST or CLOVER CONFIGURATOR. You said you used a kext to use WIFI and BT (provided by toleda) ? Can you explain me your method ?

Thanks for all.
