T530 with N-6300 boot failure 1802

2015-02-06, 20:15 PM

Hi,

 

I got a nice T530 with built in 6205 Wireless LAN. As I tried to replace with N-6300 there comes the Hardware boot failure with error 1802 (incompatible PCI device). I just wonder as the N-6300 is in the compatibility list and the third antenna was also already built in. Is there any workaround to get this running?

 

regards

Hello,

 

did you buy an Intel 6300N with a FRU?

If no, you have to do so due to the whitelist Lenovo uses.

 

Greetings,

 

Felix

The part came from a third party seller, installed by myself.

What exactly means "If no, you have to do so due to the whitelist Lenovo uses." 

looks like I´m a real newbe in this...

Lenovo uses a whitelist that is implemented in the BIOS/UEFI, so only certain WLAN/WWAN cards will work.

The Intel 6300 with a Lenovo FRU number has a different PCI ID as a non-Lenovo Intel 6300, so the latter won't work.

 

For some ThinkPads, there are modded BIOS/UEFI versions available where the whitelist is removed (so you can use every WLAN card), but for the T530, it's quite difficult to flash such a modded UEFI.

I picked up the N6300 with FRU 60Y3233 from http://www.ebay.ca/itm/1pc-Ultimate-N-6300-633ANHMW-FRU-60Y3233-Wireless-Card-for-IBM-Thinkpad-Intel-/221669331675?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item339c8592db

 

The card works flawlessly out of the box and utilizes all 3 antennae.

 

Just in case someone was looking for an answer here.
