Since these are essentially impossible to find in working condition, you will probably be stuck purchasing a comically oversized third-party battery. It might even work.

This particular machine arrived on my doorstep with an Intel 4965 AG card installed. Supposed to be supported in 9front but it wasn’t recognized by the kernel. Trouble came when I went to replace the card.

The screws on the Mini-PCIE slot were stripped.

Fortunately there is a solution. In the days when this machine was made Lenovo attempted to reserve the second Mini-PCIE slot for WWAN cards by sending a signal on pin 20 that told the card the WiFi’s physical kill switch was engaged. This can be bypassed by taping off pin 20. I used a very small sliver of black electrical tape.

That’s really all there is to it. Now you can install the card in the second slot and procede as normal.

Since I’m not going to use the card in the first slot at all, I keep the WiFi’s physical kill switch engaged at all times. This results in the WiFi LED on the screen bezel going dark, but the LED doesn’t sync with the card in the second slot anyway, so no functionality is lost.

Update: Replaced with Intel 6205, iwl driver (with pin 20 taped).
