ok first let me try to explain something quick then i will try to help you , i have bcm4360cd , handoff , continuity , instant hotpot and air drop all of them work out of the box with that card , the problem you have is that your bluetooth has a different letter in product id and maybe your bluetooth is not compatible out of the box , but don't worry maybe all you need to do is run continuity tool to enable those features , i will show you how , here i uploaded this video to another user who has the same problem simply follow the video , i also wrote the instructions for you in english , so use the commands that i included for you in the zip file.
remember to choose number 2 when you answer the question and press enter at the end of the installation
here is the link to the video
if it doesn't work the first time try it a second time and if after the second time still doesn't work
then maybe most likely you are using an incompatible SMBIOS.
first go to
system preferences - sharing
and put a check mark on bluetooth sharing
that will turn on these 2 options
then follow the video
the first video is the installation
the 2nd video is just the proof that the method works
ignore the device id that you see in that video , i was showing a guy who has a usb dongle how to enable handoff on his device
but is the same step as your device , except you have a different device id
but is the same process
ok in my bcm4360cd my device is
Vendor ID: 0x05AC
Product ID: 0x828D
and based in the info that you have provided your device is
Vendor ID: 0x05AC
Product ID: 0x828B
did you install the usb cable that comes with the card to the usb header in the motherboard?
did you rearrange the cables to match the pins in the usb header?
ok simply do this , go to
system preferences - bluetooth
and try to turn the bluetooth off and on
if is turning off and on just fine then everything is all right
if is not then tell me and i will tell you what you need to do to fix
also i think that there is a typo in your board description i look for Z107X-UD5 and i couldn't find anything , i know about the 170 so i look for this Z170X-UD5 and i found this
is this your board?
is very weird that your bluetooth don't work out of the box , maybe you don't even need to run continuity tool and all you need to do is rearrange the cables , by default those cables come in position 1 and 3 , and in your board they go in position 3 and 5 the sameway they go in my board , you need to put those wires like in the picture , you can easy lift the black part that is holding the cable , be careful don't brake it , you only need to lift it up a little bit then pull the cable out and then put it or move it where it has to go. i hope you understand my english , this is the picture for that board model that i put in the link
