New WLAN card for Lenovo Edge 15

2021-04-21, 20:25 PM

Hello,

 

I am trying to update the WLAN card for my 2015 Lenovo Edge 15 running Windows 10 x64.  I looked up the compatible parts on the website and it said "Intel 7265 2x2AC+BT PCIE M.2 WLAN" would work, so this is what I bought "Intel Corp. 7265 Wireless 2x2 AC BT M.2" from Amazon.  However when I installed the computer would not boot.

 

I assume this is because of the whitelist?  Anything I can do to get this card to work?

 

Or can someone just recommend a new WLAN card that works with my laptop and has bluetooth.

 

Thanks,

 

Neal

Hi Neal21,


Thank you for response.


WLAN and battery parts are commonly whitelisted. Not all parts with same manufacturer number would work, it is whitelisted in BIOS per FRU (part number).


Checking on the parts look up site on Model tab, FRU 04X6034 Wireless,CMB,IN,WP1ac is the first choice then check on Compatible tab before going to second picks.

Hello Neal21,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

It would be good if you may share your machine type model / MTM (ex. 81C70000RK) from the sticker as it would help us detail more about your machine variant.

 

Let us know when convenient.

 

Regards.
Dex_Lenovo
