Yoga 2 Pro, BIOS Approved WiFi Cards (ALL of them)

2014-08-25, 20:01 PM

My buddy at the bios-mod.com (BDMaster) just gave me the whitelist codes for the most current BIOS v38. Special thanks to him. Give me a few to put this into readable form. Also, please note that just because the BIOS supports the card, you must find one that is FCC approved and of M.2 form factor!

Disclaimer: 

 

This post is solely for educational purposes! If you choose to replace your WIFI card, you may use this as a guide as to what may be approved by the BIOS. However, I shall not be held responsible for:

1. Any harm done to your computer, caused by the purchase of one of these cards.

2. The accuracy of the information above. The initial BIOS codes came from BIOS v. 38 (future updates restrict the approved codes) and was extracted by someone else. Also, I manually converted each code above into the proper format and used google to link the Device ID to the right card. Hence the potential for error is there. Proceed at your own risk.

 

Before buying a card:  refer to the raw 8 digit code and do the following:

 

To recreate the PCI/VEN, invert each number pair.

 

Example: 

86802B42 = 8086 422B

Then place it in the proper format
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_422B

Finally, research the respected Device ID to ensure the one listed above is correct. Once confirmed, you must buy a FCC approved M.2 form factor of that card. If one does not exist, then look for another card. Just because the BIOS supports the card, does not mean that the card was made into a M.2 form factor.

 

Remember opening your computer and buying a wifi card that may not work is/was YOUR OWN CHOICE!

 

I take no responsibility.

 

Again, this thread is for educational purposes only!

Does anyone knows where I can buy a dual band wireless card + bluetooth for the Yoga2 13 (not Pro)? What is the part number?
Cheers

Re: Yoga 2 Pro, BIOS Approved WiFi Cards (ALL of them)

2015-07-05, 22:11 PM

Hello, How do I go about editing the whitelist and making the change in the bios? I would assume I need a few different tools to back up the bios, edit, package it again, and the apply the bios update correct? Any assistance is appreciated.

Lenovo, this BIOS needs updating with the latest available cards e.g. the Intel AC 9260

Any news on the AC 9260 WiFi card? I purchased one for a Yoga 2 Pro laptop and it doesn't work (shows unsupported when booting up). Is there any bios update to support it?

I'm just a human being human.
