I'm about to buy a new wireless card for my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E531. The card I am going to buy is Intel Wireless-AC 7260 + Bluetooth, PCIe Mini Card (7260.HMWWB).
Is it compatible (regarding Hardware and BIOS Whitelists)?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I would love to have an answer to this as well!
(Since I also have been thinking of this lately)
I'm using win10 and have the newest BIOS if that's a question

Looks like the short answer is no The whitelisted cards are in the FRU list: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/e531_fru_list_20140113.pdf
Please keep in mind that a card has to be a supported model and have a Lenovo FRU number (modified firmware - Lenovo-specific subsystem ID) to pass the BIOS whitelist check.
