10.6: Single User Mode and Bluetooth keyboards
Authored by: BMarsh on Jan 27, '11 01:27:51PM

This is a hardware/EFI feature, only newer Mac models support this with a bluetooth keyboard (it is possible that an older model that did not support this initially in EFI, did get an EFI update to add bluetooth keyboard EFI support, it is not something added in an OS update)

Generally iMacs that shipped with a bluetooth keyboard as a standard feature (2010) support this, earlier models may or may not.

10.6: Single User Mode and Bluetooth keyboards
Authored by: chucky23 on Jan 27, '11 02:37:15PM

Is there any way via System Profiler or via the command line to test if a machine is capable?

For example, I have a last rev Mac Mini - the 2009 version without HDMI. Is there any way I can test to see if the thing supports Bluetooth on startup other than getting my hands on a Bluetooth keyboard?

My Mac mini (2009) supports it. I can use option, command-s, and command-v with my bluetooth keyboard at boot.
