    Total N00b here.

    So I got my hackintosh up and running and was in the process of installing multibeast when I went to install my wifi card, it looks like it requires a M.2 port. However, I think I used the only m.2 port on my motherboard for a m.2 ssd drive.

    Can you double check and make sure that my wifi card requires the m.2 slot? And if so, can you also double check and make sure that I only have one M.2 port on my motherboard?

    If I only have one m.2 port on my motherboard, is there some other wifi card that you would recommend that I could use that doesn't require the m.2 port on my motherboard.


    WIFI CARD: BCM94352Z NGFF M.2 Wifi to 867 Mbps card 22*30mm

    MOTHER BOARD: Gigabyte H170N Wifi

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    Thx.

    States clearly in your motherboard info that you have 2 M.2 slots - one for the wifi module and one on the back for storage. I suggest you check you installed the storage in the slot on the back of the board.
