X230 BIOS

I was wondering how much of a headache will the X230 be to get rid of the whitelist, where I live its actually illegal

 

I have seen some posts using a raspberry pi to reprogram the BIOS which seems to be a real pain in the butt, so what if I want to install an 802.11ac card, **bleep**

 

so how fast is the mSATA on the X230, same as the X220 at SATA 300 MB/s or its it the faster 600 MB/s?

 

I know the CPU can see 32GB of memory but I have not seen any 16GB memory sticks

 

USB 3 is one of the improvements I like as my X220 had issues with my USB 3.0 express card

I own: T400 T500 X220 X230 all running Windows 10 Professional

Re: X230 BIOS

I don't know about legality of whitelists in your area, but the list contains the cards that were tested for noise, interference, etc. and were approved for sale by various countries' regulating agencies.  I cannot find any reference to slot speed as the slot was designed for use with a WWAN card, which is slower than any SATA device.  I would expect the slot to be SATA II,, but that is a guess.  16GB DDR3 DIMMs are available, but are compatible only with Intel 5th generation processors and above.  That is an Intel limitation

http://www.competitionbureau.gc.ca/eic/site/cb-bc.nsf/eng/00513.html relates to customer replacable and field replacable hardware

 

the Wi-Fi card in the machine is 2.4 GHz only which is in violation of the 802.11b standard which makes it a false or misleading representation, 802.11n includes 5GHz operation as part of the stamdard

 

is there a bluetooth 5 daughter board available and do i have to get a raaspberry pi to fix the violations myself?
