well, I did what you said and install the latest bios version form the link you gave here but the bios doesn't allow it to run! 

(I bought a gobi 2000) what can I do for the bios ? are there anything for hacking it so that adding the card to whitelist ???

@mustafapaul,

 

Did you get the Gobi card from Lenovo shop and is it for your laptop's model?

 

BIOS hacking is not recommended as it might brick your laptop.
