    SL300/SL400/SL500 Whitelist mod

    hi,
    i have a Lenovo Sl300, and i want to change my Mini Pci-e card for compitability reasons of osx.
    i couldn't find anything for AMI-BIOS based Lenovos in the web, so i looked around and found this on another forum: http://myhpmini.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=1832

    so i looked in my Bios for my HDSPA Card ( VenID: 0BDB DevID: 1900)
    which i only found in the Module 1B (just like with the Hp one)
    (i looked for DB 0B 00 19).

    so here's the question:
    Do you guys think it will work that i change the entries for my Wlan Card (VenID: 8086 dev: 4237) and replacing every entry which looks like this 86 80 37 42, with the new ones.
    (here is the next problem, i don't have an new one yet - probably it will be an Atheros 5008 VenId: 158C Devid: 0024)

    And another question: do i have to correct the Checksum afterwards?)

    So can anyone give me advice, or even wants to try this method who already has such a not supported card?

    ok thanks, but i don't want to put an Intel inside...

    and is this subsystem thing needed?

    probably i have to buy a device first for anything else....

    or find someone who wants to do the same

    got it...

    ok have the device now...
    took a lot of time to arrive from hongkong, but now its here...
    so the problem is: how can i get the hardware and Vendor IDs?
    i didn't get any drivers to the card, and i don't know the exact model of it, its just said that it has to be some kind of an Atheros 5008-(anything).
    is it possible to change the card while the pc is in sleep mode? without removing the battery?
    or how could this been done? (and of cousre first i want to check if the device works properly)

    So how should i do this?
    afterwards i can post the VenId and Pid and of course the subsys IDs
