You have to be in super user mode to delete that. Simply type "sudo" before that command (in the same line with it), and it will ask your password before it does it. If that still doesn't work, try moving it out of the Extensions folder instead of deleting it. Something like this:

 

sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/iwi2100.kext ~/Desktop/

 

That will move it to your desktop

Thank you for the answer!

 

Unfortunately it doesn't work. I tried doing:

 

1) sudo rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/iwi2100.kext and

2) sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/iwi2100.kext ~/Desktop/

 

but he continue saying "Read-only file system".

 

 

I mean:

 

1) override rw-r--r-- root/wheel for /System....? y

 

rm: /System/.... Read-only file system.

 

 

2) mv: rename /System/... to /var/root/Desktop/: Read-only file system

 

 

What can i do? How do i delete this file?

 

Ty again!
