Newbie - Questions

Recommended Posts

So these past 2 weeks, I have gone into full upgrade mode. I decided to upgrade my 2 Lenovo's and my GF's Samsung.

I got the 16GB ram kits coming; Upgraded SSD to 2 laptops; Bought all 3 the intel 7260 dual band ac wireless adapter.

 

Little did I know there is this crappy whitelist!!!!! 

First off, why? I don't understand the stupidity behind this. It's my laptop, I want to put parts in it! Anyways, the network cards don't work for the Lenovo's. One of them is the y500 which i see posted all around and the other is the G700 which requires a hardward programming component. My y500 is running the latest bios but in order for me to use the ac dual band, I need to mod it and I see the instructions. My one question though relates to ram? Is ram whitelisted too? I have a 16gb kit of crucial ballistix on it's way and the last thing I want is it to say unauthorized ram!

 

Can anyone shed some light? Again thanks Lenovo for making everything a hassle!

Nope ram should not be white listed at all..

The bios mods are to give permission to use the wireless cards.

Like odin2free said the ram is not on the white list, I upgraded mine too and the only item I had problems with was the AC7260 wifi, no issues at all with the memory or ssd's. 

Good luck!!!!

Ive got the 7260 installed and it works fine, only problem I have is with the bluetooth dissapearing after sleep, but that happened with the 2230 card as well.
