X62 + intel N 6300 + W7 problem

#1 Post by wujstefan » Wed Jun 07, 2017 2:14 pm

Hello,

Fighting my way through X62 w/Windows7. I have a problem with intel ultimate-n 6300 AGN driver on windows 7, the device will just not start (code 10). Reading through forums I've found some gossip that those cards will just not work on Windows, for whatever reason. They work perfectly OK in OpenOS, however.

Is anybody there who fought his wireless way w/X62 and W7?

If it is a lenovo branded card (has a FRU) and this code 10 problem occurs, it will not work in a non-Lenovo Motherboard. I already had this problem more than once.

Well swpping to non-thinkpad card is worth giving a shot. Will let you know the results.
