I have an iMAC with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse that is paired to the iMAC's internal bluetooth controller.

I want to install VMWare on the iMAC and use a bluetooth headset on the VMWare guest but understand the iMAC's internal bluetooth can't be shared between the iMAC host and VMWare's guest.

If I connect an external bluetooth dongle to one of the iMAC's USB ports the keyboard and mouse lose connectivity.

So is there a way to have the iMAC's internal bluetooth and an external bluetooth dongle active at the same time ?

As they are no doubt using different wireless frequencies believe you will have problems getting all working together and recognising their own respective frequencies.
