I installed two Intel Centrino Advanced 6205 pci-e cards into a Dell Latitude E6530 laptop running Windows 7 x64 Pro. Tried a bunch of drivers available from both Intel and Dell (latest few versions). Will get a Bad Pool Call BSOD -- if I uninstall 1 card everything is ok. Is this a general no no for drivers sake or should I just have to make a modification?
Hello MattG, I guess you meant "half-mini PCI Express" cards for laptops.
These wireless adapters were meant to be installed by the system manufacturers and require a certification process which involves the system as a whole, including wireless adapter and antennas.
If you have more questions we recommend you contacting your system manufacturer for a list of validated adapters for your laptop in regards of hardware compatibility and approved for your local radiated electromagnetic interference standards and regulatory compliance.
