That's the craziest thing I've seen a while. I googled it and wow, it's actually the vendor really locking you down (I thought at first it was just a bogus error) I'd be taking my laptop back and throwing it at someone if it told me that. They claim it's so that the card you insert doesn't interfere with the wireless built into the laptop, thus breaking FCC regs. What a pile of poo. It reminds me of certain Ethernet Switch Vendors who look at certain parts of a GBIC eeprom ID and will refuse to power the GBIC if they didn't make it. There's a few potential hacks online to work around your problem, but no doubt you've found them?
