Hello Guys,

i have a 90% completed hackintosh Lenovo ThinkPad L440,managed to fix everything Except SD Card,Wifi/BT & iMessage.
my Question here to everyone out there with a ThinkPad laptop is:
Did any of you purchase a Wifi Card from another brand that was already compatible without having to remove whitelist from bios ?.
for Example: i found on AliExpress a BCM94352 Wifi Card that it says its compatible with Lenovo Yoga 3,Y50-70 Series etc.
i did contact the seller and asked him if it is compatible with Lenovo ThinkPad L440 (without having to edit bios to remove whitelist).
He replied: Yes, You can use it without any Modifications.

Here is the link of the Wifi Card: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/BCM94352-2x2AC-BT4-0-PCIE-M-2-WLAN-Adapter-card-For-Lenovo-Yoga-3-1370-Y50/32631187588.html

i Assume that it should work since the seller confirmed and those FRU xxxxxxx things are Lenovo`s,but wanted to just have an idea if someone had success/experience with such method before.

Thank You!! :)

I did follow Rehabman guides pinned on each macOS release / Laptop Support Threads and learned from them/him
Thanks to him I managed to fix like almost everything that is fixable and thanks to that I created a guide for L440, you can check it there and answer your question by reading it:
