Hello, i am on mini itx hackintosh with Asus z170i Pro Gaming - 6700k - Gtx 1070.

 

Everything works a part from integrated onboard wireless. I have the bluetooth that recognize devices like my mouse but it can't connect, so it seems to not works.

 

There is a way, a kext to install or something to have at list the onboard wifi working on this board?

 

Thanks

Add FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broarcom_WiFi.kext might help you to get the wifi working.

You have to open the xcodproj file with XCode and then build it for your system.

send me your IOReg using so I can see if it's working with your wifi adapter or not.

Hello!

 

many thanks for your help, I installed the kext in my system with Kext Utility but no wifi :(

 

I save an IOReg file of my system (hope I did well) it is attached.

Many thanks!!

hello, I am using MacPro 5,1 because I run a Gtx 1070 Pascal Video card and Nvidia driver says that the machine must be MacPro 5,1 or 6,1.

 

If I change to iMac17,1 will wifi works? and will 1070 Gtx still works?

You don't have to use MacPro SMBIOS just for your nVidia adapter, I use the same graphic adapter and I use iMac17,1 SMBIOS, all you have to do is to add nVidiaFixUp.kext and Lilu.kext to your kext folder in clover.

/EFI/Clover/kexts/10.12

Ok thanks, where can I get the kexts you said? 

Only to understand, will the system runs better if I change to iMac17,1 ?

nVidiafixup.kext

https://sourceforge....agraphicsfixup/

 

Lilu.kext

https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu

 

MacPros don't have Skylake CPUs inside but the latest iMac17,1 has a Skylake processor, it's better to use the iMac17,1 SMBIOS to get the full utilization of the skylake architecture, and it has a better chance for power management on skylake processors.

 

EDIT:

if the link for lily.kext didn't work try this one:

wow! that's a really important info to learn for me! I'll change it!  

I am not so expert in the hackintosh world, sorry.

 

Thanks a lot for your support.

No problem dude :)

 

We're all learning new stuff everyday :)

 

I can't find any useful info on your wifi chipset go to the following URL : https://sourceforge....ts/dpcimanager/

download the DPCIManager and run it and send me a snapshot so I can find out your wifi's device ID

Click the PCI list and click update IDs then make a snapshot and post it here, justify the columns so I can read the whole info.

Ok now it's better, I will get back to you on that.

 

It's Qualcomm Atheros 168C:003E

 

just to make sure that the info is correct remove FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broarcom_WiFi.kext from EFI/clover/kext and make another screenshot.
