    Default HP BIOS Whitelist

    Has anyone found a way to get rid of that whitelist for the HP laptops?

    I know they have a CMOS/BIOS change for the IBM thinkpads. Could we do something similar for the HP's?

    I have a ZV5346us BTW.

    Default Re: HP BIOS Whitelist

    I ran across one guy who claimed to have patched the BIOS to recognize his specific miniPCI WiFi card instead of one of HP's but I couldn't get the info out of him. I think he disabled the BIOS CRC check too, that's my biggest concern (a failed CRC check will cause the notebook to error on startup, and since the BIOS chips are soldered to the motherboard that would be Bad).

    I'd really like to see support for the E-series AMD64 cores added (Turion, Mobile 3700+ and 4000+). Right now they won't work at all (tried it, kudos to mwave.com for being nice about the CPU return).

    Success!

    I edited the bios per his instructions on ZV***** page and now I can use the HP W400 I bought and the original Broadcom if I want. Just make sure you rebuild the BIOS in the phoenix editor!
