@Squid89 - if you look back in this thread to my earlier posts you can see that I did get WiFi working with a 3rd party module, but no BT. @markoskz is still planning to try another WiFi/BT module to see if it works, but we are still waiting for him to have time and parts to complete that test.

Hi @quangdog, I have read through the thread and noticed no one had posted about success with both (WIFI and BT). I was asking to see if anyone else, who hasn't posted yet, has had success. Hopefully someone finds a solution :)

While I don’t have the command string to disable the onboard WiFi but that would be my first recommendation, then get a Fenvi TV-919 for WiFi and Bluetooth.

Hi, @Squid89 If there is a solution with two adapters and the Broadcom wifi module, like the photo of thread 60 in this publication, I leave the link.

I have seen that in other motherboards like the H370n WIFI that also has the Cnvi module, they have made Wifi and Bluettoh work in that way, in the z390i Aorus should be the same.

The bad thing is that you sacrifice a Nvme slot, maybe you could also use another adapter from sata to m2, so you let the NVMe slots empty in case you use them like me.

@markoskz, @Squid89, et al. Can't you remove the motherboard WiFi/BT and just use the Fervi? I did that to an older system back when.

Hi, @thanhvo31 , I have read in several publications that they do not recommend the Plus version of thw Samsung 970 NVMe SSD, since there are problems in the installation, you should try to install the system in another ssSSDd, and then clone it to the NVMe, I have the 970 EVO NVMe SSD version, it worked wonders.

If there is anything else that can help you, do not forget to communicate, Regards
Hi, I am managed to install with a Kingston SSD on Nucintosh then move it to GA Z390i, then configured it successfully with Multibeast, only small thing is not capable to get 4K 60Hz (reach to 30Hz only) on Monitor while getting full 4K 60Hz on Nucintosh and Windows 10 on the same machine.
My question is whether you EFI is OK to 4K 60Hz.
By the way, my HD630 is allocated 1536 MB RAM
Edit: I added RX580 and get 40K60Hz natively.
Seem my UHD630 getting HDMI 1.4 only.

Thanks for the guide!
My hardware are almost like what you built.
I followed your steps strictly , but I met problems on step 7. I have no idea what I should do. I would like to use your usb mapping, can you describe more details for that?
One more thing, I physically removed the build-in WiFi card on the mobo. I bought the BCM943602CS WIFI/BT card and M.2 NVMe adapter trying to get WiFi/BT work. In the beginning, the BCM chip with adapter was installed on the back of the mobo. The system didn't recognize any WiFi module at all. I was so frustrated. But I tried to swap the BCM m.2 slot with the front m.2 SSD slot, wifi started working well (but no BT yet). Then, I swap them back just like the first install (front for SSD, back for BCM ), it worked well now (still no BT). How weird it is!
I am wondering BT had no function was caused from the USB mapping. Because the BT module on the adapter need to link to the USB 9-pin socket (two wires for Dx+ and Dx-). Since I don't follow your USB mapping, the macOS can't recognize the BT module.
So, please help me to understand the step 7 USB mapping. Maybe the BT will hopefully work well.

Hi, that if possible if you do not have a GPU, if you use only UHD630, you can use the PCi port for a Fervi card that will provide native bluetooth and wifi.

Hi @thanhvo31 , thanks for sharing your experience, I'm glad you could successfully complete the installation, I have not tried 4k with UHD630, with my Shappire Rx580 GPU if it works 4k at 60hz, I have another monitor that is an Asus with 144hz, but I only I took 75hz, I was researching and apparently it was the adapter, I had it with HdMi, I changed the cable for a DVI, and now I can select 120Hz and 144Hz, apparently it was the HDMI problem.

Hello, I'm glad you have a construction similar to mine, I recently got a BCM943602CS card that I bought by aliexpress, I could not try it in my hack, because I've been very busy recently, so I used it in another Hackintosh that I was putting together with a motherboard asrock z370, and it worked OOB, incredible everything worked, the wifi and airdrop worked great. I made a video of how to install the wifi module, I upload it to youtube in a few days.

In my hack I was thinking that it would not work for other publications that I read that they tried but it did not work, I will order another module to try with more time in my Hack.

The adapter you used is not like others recommend for it to work, with the USB mapping of my construction it should work since the HS14 bluetooth port I have removed it so it is not necessary to remove the original module. I'm thinking that bluetooth does not work for you because of the adapter you have.

What you could try is: do not use my mapping, that way HS14 is enabled, remove the original WIFI card, and if it does not work there maybe it is due to some missing driver or is the adapter.

The mapping, It is very easy to do, just follow the steps here, and enable only 15 ports, the USB 2.0 port where you connected the bluetooth I had it for the microbus of the H100i v2, but then I realized that it is not necessary since I do not use the application of corsair, so remove it and leave it empty.

You inform me of any news, I am interested in solving everything that is necessary to activate bluetooh, I also thought of buying a dongle

A few days ago I was thinking that I could use something similar to this:
B Key M.2 NGFF SSD to 2.5" SATA Converter Adapter Card

This would be because I have the two Nvme M2 ports occupied with the Evo 970 and the WD 1Tb. But I do not know if it worked, I just saw it and I would like to try it.
