How do you get PCI to show up in about my Mac? I know in snow leopard there was a kext for this called iopcifamily. Is there something of the sort for 10.8.5?
 

About This Mac>More Info>System Report> PCI Cards

How do you get it to read there? It is reading everywhere else. This is last thing for my build

 

Thanks for the help

It's not important. What you're seeing is perfectly normal and there is no functionality to be gained from having PCI devices shown there.

 

I believe you can put whatever you want in System Information via DSDT. You could have each device appear as a verse from a Justin Bieber song for example.

Add name section to device in dsdt

Name (_SUN, One)

And put your values in _DSM. Here is an example:

                Device (ARPT)
                {
                    Name (_ADR, Zero)
                    Name (_SUN, One)
                    Method (_PRW, 0, Serialized)
                    {
                        Return (^^_PRW)
                    }

                    Method (_PLD, 0, Serialized)
                    {
                        Return (EPLD)
                    }

                    Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
                    {
                        If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
                        {
                            Return (Buffer (One)
                            {
                                0x03
                            })
                        }

                        Return (Package (0x0E)
                        {
                            "device-id",
                            Buffer (0x04)
                            {
                                0xA0, 0x43, 0x00, 0x00
                            },

                            "compatible",
                            Buffer (0x0D)
                            {
                                "pci14e4,43a0"
                            },

                            "name",
                            "AirPort Extreme",
                            "model",
                            Buffer (0x38)
                            {
                                "Broadcom BCM4322x 802.11 b/g/n Wireless Network Adapter"
                            },

                            "AAPL,slot-name",
                            Buffer (0x08)
                            {
                                "AirPort"
                            },

                            "device_type",
                            Buffer (0x08)
                            {
                                "AirPort"
                            },

                            "built-in",
                            Buffer (One)
                            {
                                0x00
                            }
                        })
                    }
                }
            }
