    I've read several threads about Continuity and Handoff options for unsupported machines (such as the old Mac Pro 1,1) planning to run Yosemite (through Chameleon or a Tiamo-like boot.efi), but I haven't found a final word as to how best to proceed.

    Although there are at least two ASUS PCI adapters for 802.11ac connectivity, it appears that, compatible though that may be, I would still need a new Bluetooth LE adapter that can be plugged into another PCI slot, and I'm not sure which one to use, or whether all this would be immediately recognised by OS X without tweaking.

    I've also found a vendor, called OSX WIFI (http://www.osxwifi.com) that sells what appear to be fully OS X-compatible hardware that include both 802.11ac and Bluetooth LE connectivity. The problem here is that I'm not sure whether I can install their APPLE BROADCOM BCM94360CD - 802.11 A/B/G/N/AC + BLUETOOTH 4.0 WITH ADAPTER FOR MACPRO 2008 (http://www.osxwifi.com/apple-broadc...ac-bluetooth-4-0-with-adapter-for-macpro-2008) in my Mac Pro 2006 (I don't see where to plug the PCI adapter; it doesn't appear it can go at the back of the machine) or I should order something like their APPLE BROADCOM BCM94360CD - 802.11 A/B/G/N/AC + BLUETOOTH 4.0 WITH ADAPTER FOR PC/HACKINTOSH (http://www.osxwifi.com/apple-broadc...-bluetooth-4-0-with-adapter-for-pc-hackintosh), which can clearly be used as a standard PCI adapter.

    If any of you has purchased either of these or a similar solution, or is knowledgable about them, will they care to clarify the issue? By any chance, do you know if this hardware can be recognised by Snow Leopard and/or Windows 7? Many thanks.
