  1. Thank you for a great solution, it works with my Dell DW1707 Atheros 9565 card. The virtual machine based on Ubuntu takes up to 4++ GB disk space and 30s to load, I found it too expensive to just enable a bluetooth card. After several days of research, I found a way to prepare a very tiny (40 MB) and very fast (10s load) virtual machine that load firmware to atheros card. The solution is based on Tiny Core Linux. Here is how: 1. Download CorePlus from website 2. In VMWare, create a virtual machine: - Use the downloaded CorePlus ISO file. - Template: Linux 4x... - Config: CPU & RAM: 1 core, RAM: 256 MB, Hard Disk: 1GB, SATA (not SCSI !!!, if SCSI you can not install Tiny Core on HDD) 3. On the first run, install TinyCore following exactly this instruction except for the step when select Install Type you need to select Core and X/GUI Destop and select Wifi Support. 4. After installing, install Bluez extension by the following steps: 4.1 Run Apps (middle icon at the bottom), click App -> Cloud (remote) -> Browser 4.2. Install Bluez: - Wait a bit, when list of extensions appear, type bluez and Enter in Search text box. - Select bluez.tcz, wait a bit until detailed information appear. After that, on the bottom left of App Windows, select OnBoot and click Go. - Wait until bluez is being installed (see attached image). 4.3. Install atheros firmware - Similarly, install firmware-atheros.tcz. - Note: in this way, you can install firmware for other manufacturers. Actualy, in step 3, if you select an option to install firmware than all firmware for all manufacturers will be installed, but in this case, the VM size grow up from 39MB to 267MB. 4.4. Reboot virtual machine and you are finished ! 5. For lazy people, here is the prepared virtual machine.
  2. Hervé already answered to your question. I just add a link to his intruction (for intel bluetooth, but similar procedure for other manufactures)
  3. Solved my problem by changing DVMT value (0x350 to 0x3 in my case, Dell 3040 micro) instead of using IntelGraphicDVMTFixup / Evergreen kext. After that, 4K and high resolution value of HiDPI mode appeared.
  4. @anatharias Can you set a resolution higher than 2732x1536, e.g. 4K? You can use an app like RDM to get available resolution. Also, could you share your config.plist file and list of kexts?
  5. No, speed go up to 30+ Mbps using a/b/g access point as reported by speedtest.net. The same speed in Windows. Here is the wireless status. Note that my card is Dell DW1707 with AR9565. Bluetooth "works" by modding a IOBluetoothFamily plist (but only after login to Windows (to turn it on) and restart to OS X).
  6. Me too. Mine is an AR9565 one, the card worked once, and after reboot it disappeared. Then I used this and it works fine so far.
  7. Does it offer a HiDPI resolution higher than 1366x768 (or normal resolution higher than 2732x1536)? I can not get mine to go higher than that resolution
  8. For me (Dell 3040 micro), the plist file in this topic makes PC hang up. I need to clear the DropOEM option in it to be able boot. Try to use my plist (and kext) in the attached file. Note that if you don't have Mac in hand, you can copy it to EFI folder in Windows by mounting it: Run Command Line (Cmd) as Administrator, type DiskPart, type Select Vol, check the number (x) of your EFI volume (it usually has size of 200 or 260MB), type Select Vol x (x is the number in previous step), type Assign Letter=s, now EFI volume is S: drive.

  9. Thank you. I resolved the problem with blue/red tin but will try your solution to see if it is more effective. Another small problem with video: I can not drive the display higher than 2732x1536 resolution (tried on 4K TV Samsung 6100MU and 2K monitor Dell U2515H, using both HDMI and DisplayPort), that mean I can not get HiDPI mode higher than 1366x768. ---- Edit: Tested with Whatevergreen, the problem is resolved this way, too. However, the problem with HiDPI resolution is still persist.
  10. Problem was fixed by updating IntelGraphicsFixup.kext to the lasted version and adding FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext and FakePCIID.kext
  11. Today I tested color with my Dell U2515H: - With HDMI, all colors are normal. - With DP, colors are inverted as follow: Blue -> Red, Red -> Blue, Green -> Green. The photo shot of High Sierra Desktop is attached with this message. As you can see, the dominated color is Blue (it should be Orange for High Sierra Mountain), the icon colors on the Desk look strange too. Searching on internet I found a workaround: use SwitchRes to change color mode from Billion Colors to Million Colors, or using resXtreme change color depth from 8 to 4, color bits from 10 to 8. After that, the colors returned to normal mode. For reference, my hardware config is: Dell 3040 Micro, i3-6100T, RAM 8GB, SSD Samsung 256GB, monitor Dell Ultrasharp U2515H. The current config.plist is attached bellow. config.plist.zip
  12. Thank you. Colors are normal when connected to TV via HDMI. So I think the problem is likely in cable of monitor (I used DP to DVI cable, the monitor is a 15 years old IBM T120). I tried to rotate and change resolution to reset the monitor parameters as point out by some sources on internet but without success. In two days, I will get back to my office and try a normal DP display (Dell U2515H) and will post result here.
  13. Thank you for support! Using your config.plist, I had to enable Fix Shutdown and FixHeader, as well as turn off Drop OEM option to make it bootable. However, the blue color is still inverted, I will do research with kexts and post result here.
  14. Hi, Could you share the your CLOVER folder (specifically ACPI, kexts folder and config.plist file)? I just bought a Dell 3040 Micro and try install High Sierra. Using a 3050 Micro kexts and config.plist, I can run Sierra but with inverted blue color.
