Do you think it will work? Will it work "plug and play", with no BIOS mod?

I also installed a 4.0 board in my T430 (Win 7 Pro 64) that didn't have any bluetooth and have yet to have the device recognized in the device manager or by any other speccy type software. Lenovo bluetooth software stops installing when it can't find a suitable device. Still troubleshooting that one...
EDIT: Got the bluetooth 4.0 card to work in my T430 by installing the "Lenovo hotkey features integration" software. Apparently the software turns power ON and OFF power to the bluetooth card. Without the software the bluetooth card is never on, and thereby not found by the device manager.
BTW, even though I didn't have any bluetooth board in my T430, the cable was already there scotch taped to the bezel. Like the bluetooth, there is also an unused cable for the fingerprint reader. A fingerprint reader board should fit, but there is no hole for the fingerprint scanner, that requires a different bezel, or some case modification.

So i found the (probably) correct board on eBay but it comes in two "Sizes" and I'm not sure which one i should get.
They are A2(FRU 60Y3305) and A1(FRU 60Y3303) also here's the eBay listing I'm looking at: https://www.ebay.de/itm/313523389998?ha ... Swwq9gh8Nb
Hope you guys can help me out!
