M73 Tiny whitelist

#1 Post by Allstar » Fri Jan 30, 2015 9:06 am

Hi!

Good old 1802 error after adding a non-fru wifi card to M73 Tiny. Is there any workaround to it?

Best regards

M73 has an UEFI BIOS.
No known workarounds, unfortunately.

That's lovely. I have managed to swap CPU and RAM, but for some reason the wifi card switch is still traditionaly restricted :| The UEFI BIOS feature seems to be a recent update - http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds038325 - 30 january released. At the moment I'm still on regular BIOS.

I'm curious if this card will aslo fit to M73 Tiny - link to ebay

M73 has had an UEFI Bios from day 1.
If that card is not on the Whitelist, it almost certainly won't work.

I've done some research to find the whitelisted wifi cards. So far I know the models - Intel 105, Intel 2230, N7260, N6235, BCM4352 - are supported. But I'm having difficult time in determing their FRU numbers. My desktop is type 10AX.

This most recent documented parts list (for machine type 10AX, 10AY) - link to pdf - shows BCM4352 with a FRU of 03T7135.

EDIT:
Intel 105 FRU: 04W3772
Intel 2230 FRU: 04W3765
Intel N7260 -
Intel N6235 FRU: 04W3777
Broadcom BCM4352 FRU: 03T7135

Anyone knows the FRU of 7260 model?

04X6010 is the 7260AC whitelisted in the M73.   this is the updated FRU with the magic packet wake fix.

The AC version of 7260 seems to be on the 10DM type machines. Google states thaht Thinkpad Yogas have the same card. Seems to be quite rare card. There's also Realtek RTL8723BE (Wi-Fi/BT 4.0, 1x1) cards on the whitelist.

here in the US the 7260AC is a CTO option on the sales site for the M73 tiny so it's safe to say that all M73 machine types use the same FRU.   there's a chance that the current FRU from thinkpads might work but i don't know if the device IDs are the same.

Indeed, compatibility won't be a issue between different machine types. Ordered anyway N6235 04W3777 from ebay for 26$.

Hi, just curious if that 6235 card off eBay worked for you? if so, can you post a link?
Thanks!

Yes, the wifi card and bluetooth are both working great. Here's the link to ebay.
