You will either need to find a good hack from Toleda et al or use an official Apple board.

It worked in a real Mac Pro; it should work on your hackintosh as well.

4360 card is fine too, as long as WIFI works and Brcm4360 kext is loaded.

 

I heard 43224HMS does not work on 10.10 btw

I've bought an Apple Broadcom BCm94360cd for my hackintosh and handoff works fine.

The 43224 is supported natively in Yosemite AirPortBrcm4360.kext, no BT.

I know it works on 10.9 but I get 2 reports that it does not work on 10.10, even with your kẽt.

Can you give some links to what exactly you bought, because I don't get it where from and what did you buy?

Did you buy separately an adapter mini PCI-e to PCI-e?

I bought this: ( wifi + bt card)
http://www.ebay.com/...=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

 

and later I got this: ( adapter)
http://www.osxwifi.c...r-pc-hackintosh

 

 

But you can just buy both things together like this:

At the end I decided to go with this. We will see when it comes. 

Thanks Taruga for the info.
