    iMessage is dead, I can confirm that. Then I do have another issue with my SSD And have a look at this tluck - are you preparing an updated bundle today? Otherwise I'll go and update clover just like that.

    @glasgreat - so the mini pic-e board does pin out translation, since apple implemented another layout on its card. The card itself does both WiFi ac and Bluetooth 4LE. That's coming down to the Broadcom chip used. I place an order to get that card combo. Yes, it is expensive, but still cheaper than to fizzle around for ages (given I do earn around 68€/h).

    @tluck - you can see that by running another VM inside the first one. Fusion for example allows for ESXi to host several VMs simultaneously. Or you run a Linux VM in VMware Workstation on a Windows VM in VMware Fusion.

    @Glasgreat - I came across this: http://www.macvidcards.com/store/p33/Wifi_AC_%26_Bluetooth_Airport_Card.html it has a compatible card on a carrier module that does the pin out translation (read regular mini pci-e) That's what we need, With some tweaks to the chassis it should fit in. I'll see if I can get the adaptor card somewhere. It shall be good for the other Apple WiFi/BT combos as well

    BT handoff compatible

    Are there any notebook compatible solutions / ideas around?

    Now, I want to use handoff and continuity with iOS 8 - what's needed to get this working? looks like the current imacs have a BCM94360CD based airport bluetooth pci-e card. But there is a catch to using it, since it has a proprietary pin-payout and hence won't fit in our T420s. So I am trying to get my hands on a mini pci-e version. Does anybody here have an idea?
