[REQUEST] Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 (5FCNxxWW) remove WWAN card whitelist
#1
The Lenovo Z580 running Windows 8 won't boot with other wireless cards installed and will keep saying "Please remove unauthorized wireless card" until the card is removed. Someone please help removing the wifi whitelist check. I haved tried opening the BIOS using Phoenix BIOS editor but no luck.

Here is the BIOS file:

(This is a Phoenix BIOS)

Any help will be appreciated.

I have a Lenovo Z580 that has the Centrino Wireless-N220 wifi card in it. This card is 2.4ghz only, and I am surrounded by 5Ghz networks and the slow connection is KILLING ME! I am all lined up and ready to buy an Intel Ultra-6300 wifi card and use it - after I can secure a way to get rid of the whitelist in the system BIOS.

I have been able to find a thread about the Z570, but I want to be absolutely sure it is compatible with the Z580 before I try anything. After all they are two different systems. Any help you can offer would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!

Ok I installed MS DOS on a flash drive (used this utility http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/467...reate.html ) and copied the files you sent me to the root of the drive. I cannot get my computer to boot to the drive at all. Help?
