The Fenvi FV-T919 and Fenvi FV-HB1200 provide both WiFi and Bluetooth, and work very well in a x1 slot with the SSDT-DESIGNARE-Z390-NO-CNVW.aml copied to the CLOVER/ACPI/patched folder on the EFI partition of the Mojave SSD. Instructions for copying the SSDT are provided in the spoiler labeled Final Steps in Post-Installation. (Gigabyte AORUS Xtreme owners must install these cards in one of the long slots.) The FV-T919 is the faster of the two cards and more expensive. The FV-HB1200 is slightly slower, but lower priced. Both will work out-of-the-box with no drivers needed

HI @CaseySJ

I have Fenvi FV-T919 installed also USB cable connected to the F_USB and Wifi works aout of the box. But I have issue with Blutooth. No Bluetooth device recognized on Catalina 10.15.2 (19C57). Do you have any suggestions?

BCM94360CS2 WiFi/BT module must be installed onto a PCIe x1 adapter card and inserted into an available PCIe x1 slot on motherboard. See Components section for exact specifications.

I have FV-T919 installed on PCIEX1_2 as graphics card covers PCIEX1_1.

Hello @iratelizard

Welcome to the forum! Are you using the modified DSDT that is included in the Experimental OpenCore Mini-Guide?
Sure am using the DSDT, and while initially it seemed that other issues existed with it (intel wireless card was somehow still enabled) now I can clearly see that all you advertised in your description for the expiremental OC support have come true! You have no idea how happy I am, native NVRAM has been the dream since my Haswell hack, and I'm now propagating this down the line to my other hacks. truly a wondrous time to be alive! Now to solve the sleep issue, I swear it worked when I first booted up OC but still the famous sleep for 2-3 seconds then wake immediately.

I have the same problem. Was unable to get the Bluetooth to show up. It is supposed to show up under USB devices. So it may have something to do with the limited USB ports.

When I return home from the holidays (there's an odd turn of phrase :)) I'll check DisableVariableWrite. Meanwhile, we've consolidated sleep-related solutions/suggestions here:
My understanding is that the modified DSDT contains the NVRAM magic. DisableVariableWrite alone may not be sufficient.

Troubleshooting Bluetooth starts with examining USB ports. Best way to do that is by running IORegistryExplorer, scrolling the device tree on left side until we see XHC, and then checking if Bluetooth appears under either HS11 or HS12. You may also select File --> Save As... from IORegistryExplorer and upload the saved file.

HS11 and HS12 are certainly empty in this list. Suggestions:
  • Shut down and flip power switch on back of PSU for 10 seconds. Then power up again. Any change?
  • If no change, please run IORegistryExplorer and scroll the device list on left side until you see XHC. Then expand the HS11 and HS12 nodes in the device tree (if they are expandable) and post a screenshot. No need to upload the entire IOReg file.
