Oh well. I ended up just getting one of these this weekend and it works great.
yap seen that before, that means that your notebook has a bios that will only support what ever adapter your OEM company decides will work with it.

each laptop has 2 or 3 supported models, and depending on laptop manufacture other adaters will either work fully, work fine, but stuff like wi-fi locator or wi-fi switch won't work, or in your case bios just throws a stupid error message.

in this case any internal adapter you would buy would not work. unless specifically supported (would have to check OEMs parts page to see what is supported)
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
