    Adding to the list of incompatible cards. Did you try 0.4.4?

    I believe Fantasma tried his hardest to get it to work with Broadcomm but there are too many conflicts with other drivers. See 0.4.4 thread.

    Bluetooth is the main one if you disable bluetooth in the bios you may find your card works "on live boot not vm".
