New Hacktonsh user, having some bluetooth issues


4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello insanelymac, I recently built my first hackintosh.


Gigabyte GA-H55-USB3 LGA 1156 rev 2.0

Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz

Palit NEAT2400FHD01 GeForce GT 240 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0x16


I've got it running almost perfectly and I recently ordered a Asus USB-BT211 USB 2.0 Mini Bluetooth Dongle to use with my magic mouse and apple keyboard. According to osx86 and others this is supposed to work out of box, but it has not for me. My bluetooth icon doesn't even show up on the menu bar, and when I go into system preferences I can't even see bluetooth. I search for bluetooth using spotlight but when I clicked on it, it says that it's not available at this time. Any assistance here would be great, thanks.

Don't know if this will help. I too had trouble with the Asus BT211 which would not work in 10.6 nor recognize in parallels WinXP this was

in a hack and also in a real mac. I did get another one that worked but never bothered to return the Asus BT211. I tried it 10.7 and no joy figuring I will

away. Yesterday I went to Asus and they had updated their utility but it really did not say what it did to it. I downloaded it on the parallels side WinXP

and installed this time it recognized it and it worked both on XP and 10.7. I even rebooted and it still works. Now I will try it on my hack.
