Want to have a Bluetooth dongle that works with the hackintosh. My system build is the following:

Ryzen 9 3900X
Asus X570 Crosshair VIII Impact Mini-DTX
64GB Ram @3600
5700 XT Power Color
1tb nvme gen3
Lian Li TU150 case

Ther eis no extra pcie slots or otherwise I would of went with a Fenvi card but since I wanted to make a small hackintosh this was one of the few options I had left. What are your recommendations? I haven't tried taking the shield off to see if there is a wificard that I could remove. TIA

Take a look here, https://dortania.github.io/Wireless-Buyers-Guide/types-of-wireless-card/usb.html

The package that's linked for support uses Clover so you are best to extract the files from the pkg to be used in OC.

I actually have the drivers from Chris111 that I used for the TP-Link AC1300 and works fine. Only issue is the bluetooth not working porperly so best bet seems to be using the original card from apple. Digging around and taking my motherboard apart I figured I could take out the Intel ax200 card in the motherboard and replace it with:


and add this to the mini pci-e: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B085HBBB6B/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and get this from ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-Wi...epid=0&hash=item3d155f7743:g:pwwAAOSw-3pZzp9Y

What do you think about that? It should work right? Wondering there would be issues with so many adapters in between. Haven't found a m.2 a+e key to mac wifi with fcp cable so this is probably the best route. I would need the cable in order to have it come out of the IO shield since there isn't much clearance at all with the IO shield as it sits flush with the ASUS wifi GO case for the ax200 card.
