Default Bluetooth is not installed - 05-12-2009, 03:29 PM

I've installed the operative system without problems,everything work (Screen, audio, Wi-Fi) but the bluetooth still not being recognized by the system. In the BIOS is still active, but there's no way to make the BT card visible to the OS. Any help?

Rerun the DellEFI and make sure "Fix Bluebooth" is checked. Fixed my issue when my Bluetooth shut off permanently after a bad pairing.

Are you sure that BlueTooth is active? This is from the OS, not BIOS.

If not, boot into Windows or Ubuntu and activate it first before dropping back into OSX. BT wouldn't work for me under OSX until I did that.
