    Hi Guys,

    I have a Thinkpad 1802 with a wireless card that failed. I installed a new unit and now have the 1802 error. I have tried to download the SLIC Bios from this site but get an error when trying to install Platform Signature not found when using WinPlash64 (I am using Windows 7 x64) and an issue about administrator rights when using WimPhlash 32.

    Current Bios level is 2.27

    Help please.

    1802 error

    Hi Yen,

    though I'm not Mark21287 I can give you a positive response. I've found today your answer and I tried it immediately and it works fine.
    I downgraded to bios version 2.26 and installed your modified version 2.27, installed my new Atheros-card AR5008. The driver was installed automatically by Win7 so I only needed my AES-password.
    Sorry for my English, I'm from Ger and I will complete my signature later. My thanks to you had priority.

    thanks
    TGIF

    Can I give your solution to some friends ?

    Hi Yen,

    I tried to get your modded bios files but I ended up in a dead link.
    Could you please put it online again? Would be great to fix the 1802-problem
    with my Z61m and Win XP SP3!

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi TGIF,

    I just read, you fixed the problem with the bios update.
    Could you send me this file anyhow, so I could solve the same issue with my Z61m, too?

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi Yen,

    thanks a lot for your great work! Everything worked out as you told me.
    Perhaps you can help with the problem I have now with my new network card:
    I changed the Intel 3945ABG to an Intel 6230N. Wireless is working fine, but the included bluetooth option isn't working at all.
    I can activate or deactivate the bluetooth device in the bios seetings, but windows does not recognize there is such an adapter.
    I did install the latest BT driver for Windows XP.
    My configuration is: Z61m 9453 A-11, so it came without bluetooth. Windows XP SP3.

    Best regards,
    bonnberliner


    Alright - I figured it out on my own. Thanks again, Yen!

    Many thanks for your modded BIOS! Everything works like a charm in my Z61e when upgrading to Intel 4965AGN.:spoton:

    @bonnberliner: Glad you've sorted it by yourself.

    All download links are dead

    I know it's been a while since you last posted on this thread but i hope you still have the modded BIOS.
    I can't find a working link anywhere. Can you please upload it again? Thx.
