Laptop Notes

BIOS Whitelists

This laptop has BIOS whitelists for both Mini PCIe slots!

It is not possible to:

  • install any WLAN card into the WWAN slot
  • install an “unknown” WLAN card into the WLAN slot

However, the Intel WLAN cards shipped by HP are not branded, so it should be possible to install “normal” Centrino Advanced-N 6205 or 6300 cards. (Confirmed PCI ID for 6205: [8086:0085] (rev 34), subsystem [8086:1311])

Atheros cards do seem to be checked against HP-specific subsystem IDs, this is not verified however.

The whitelist, as of BIOS rev F.04, reads: (note the “HP brand” indicator)

Note that the BIOS seems to be verified against a RSA signature on boot, so a removal of this whitelist is not likely possible.
