1) The Bluetooth adapter is currently connected to one of the two USB2 headers on my motherboard (the USB2 ports on the front of my case are connected to the other one). Are you saying I should unplug it from the header and then plug it back in while running Hackintool? And should I switch back to using USBInjectAll.kext before I do that?
2) Good call. It turns out that FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext and FakePCIID.kext were also under L/E (probably installed with Multibeast a long time ago). I just deleted them. I didn't see anything else that looked like it was USB or Hackintosh-related.
3) No, I'm on Catalina.
4) Hopefully I won't have to buy a USB PCIe card, but thanks for the suggestion.
Thanks again for all your help! I'm going to continue trying to sort this out tomorrow.
Morning. (Here anyway )
1) No, if the bluetooth adapter is plugged-in to one of the USB2 motherboard headers you do not need to plug-unplug at all. If it is at HP17 as I said then just change to "Internal" and create a new USBPorts.kext. An no again. Looking at your latest Hackintool screen with the ports reduced, the HP17/BT port is still there, so you would only need to switch back to USBInjectAll if you want to re-evaluate all your ports again.
2) Okay. Now you've removed the duplicate kexts from L/E remember to rebuild the kext-caches (I assume you did because the ports reduced etc.).
3) Ah. In that case GenericUSBXHCI.kext may not work. It was last updated in 2015 and High Sierra is close enough that it probably would have an effect. With Catalina though, some report it works, others report it does nothing. All depends on the motherboard and macOS version.
With 3rd-party USB chipsets it can be a difficult situation to resolve. Having no native Intel USB3 ports on the back-panel is unfortunate. Apple didn't use them directly but did provide some drivers for the Mac Pro line and add-on, PCIe cards. ASMedia being one and Fresco Logic being another in common use. Always worth checking the model before you pick an external card - if you have to obtain one in the end.
