<Advice Needed> | Y50-70 | Wifi Card, SSD upgrade

Hi all tech pro,


Can i have your guys advice for wifi card upgrade also the SSD upgrade for Y50-70 which about 3 years old.


1. I plan to upgrade the Intel AC3160 to Intel AC 8265, however, some thread showing that there have some Lenovo BIOS restriction, which not allow new card to install, do we have any workaround or any proper method to upgrade the wifi card?

M.2 2230 and M.2 1216 wireless cards

Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265


2. I have plan to upgrade the existing 1tb HDD to 512gb SSD, is there any compatible brand/model can recommend? Also how to migrate the entire OS to the new SSD? Lastly, whether the BIOS will block any new SSD to install on it?


Deeply appreciate for anyone can enlighten me....



Best Regard,

Kevin C
