Re: LENOVO G50-45 wifi upgrade to intel 8265 is impossible. i want a modded bios

Using a "hacked" bios will remove all support options from Lenovo. I have maintained that he would need to pursue it at his own risk, as it will remove support options from Lenovo in case of failure.

Also - no two notebooks are the same, nor will they respond in a similar fashion to bios updates or replacements.... The more complex the machine, the more prone to fail it becomes.

Again - it is far less risky to just grab a USB wireless adapter, than to attempt to use a modded BIOS file.

Good luck.

I was able to upgrade with the Kocome 5G Dual band BT 4.0 card FRU:04X6019 LENOVO PN:20200573:

It will give you 5G capability and is compatible with the G50-45 BIOS

Good to know that it worked for you. The key here is that it is a Lenovo part, and is on the accepted listing for your notebook.

Cheers.
