    Hello everyone!
    Very impressive Forum here! Lots of Knowledge and Pros! Biggest Respect! Maybe someone can help me out....
    I dont want to start just a request, i want to learn how to do this MOD by myself. I'm deep in IT on a daily base, but haven't a Need for a Modification on a BIOS... till now... So here, my Problem:

    I want to unrestrict the two PCIe (one holds WIFI, other one holds WWAN) Sockets in my Laptop (cause i need an other WIFI Card for use with MAC OSX).

    If i plug the new Card i get this BIOS-Message at booting that i can't install any other Card in there, and that the Slot now is deactivated.

    What i did till now:
    -Downloaded BIOS Updater from HP, made a working Update USB-Stick.
    -Installed R&W Utility
    -Installed PhoenixTool 2.56
    -Pulled BIOS (68SCF.BIN) from original Updater.

    Now... What to do next?
    How to correctly decompress this BIOS?
    Have i to bother about SLICs or related Activation Problems?

    Is it even possible to DEACTIVATE the Whitelist Function so i can swap Cards for testing purposes?
    Or is it "just" possible to add Whitelist Tables and enter my new WIFI Card Specs in there?

    Any Help would be very appreciated!

    I have exactly the same question. I'll search around in the forum some more, but if anyone knows where to point me (and does so), I'll thank you kindly!
