I have a Pavilion g6-2305sl notebook bought about three years ago, which came with a RaLink RT5390R 802.11b/g/n Wireless adapter.
I would like to upgrade to an ac wireless adapter, for example Intel ac7260, but i can't find the whitelisted devices list for my notebook anywhere.
Any help? Thank you.

The approved list of wireless adapters can be found in chapter 3, page 24 of the service manual for your notebook.
Your model series was the last of those made by HP.
It is remotely possible that there is no BIOS whitelist in your notebook, but I can't say for sure.
If you have any HMC form factor wireless card laying around, or you can take one from another notebook, you can check it in your notebook, and if you don't get an unsupported wireless card BIOS halt on boot error, you can safely assume you can install an Intel 7260 dual band N or AC card in your notebook, since it has an Intel 3rd gen processor and series 7 chipset.
