T500 windows 10 64bit compatible Half size mini PCI Wifi bluetooth card?

2017-02-23, 3:50 AM

I pulled the intel 5150 which is not compatible with windows 10.  Has anyone upgraded a T500 to Windows 10 and tested a wifi card or wifi/bluetooth card

I have a W500 using the Intel wifi Link 5300AGN card. It does work with W10 and I would assume it can be installed in your computer. But double check.

I found this list of compatible windows 10 wifi cards on the Intel site.  The card your referenced is not on the compatibility list.  I purchase the 3160 card that is compatible.  When installing this,  booting was stopped by the 1802 error for a whitelisted card.   So, basically my T500, which is out of support by Lenovo, can load Windows 10 Pro,  but is restricted in the bios from updating the wireless card.
