Hi:

 

No one here can tell you if your notebook has a BIOS whitelist.  HP does not release that information.


Generally notebooks made in 2014 or later do not have BIOS whitelists with very few exceptions.

 

I can't imagine that the Dell card you selected would be any better than the one currently installed in your notebook.

 

If you want to upgrade the wifi card, I recommend this model...

 

Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 802.11ax 2 × 2 + Bluetooth 5 (non-vPro)   HP part # L35282-002.

 

You can buy one directly from the HP parts store...22.31 quid.

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

Hi:

 

Unfortunately I wouldn't know if that card would work or not.

 

For $2.00 it is a pretty low risk gamble if it doesn't work.

It shouldn't matter.

 

Any M.2 wifi card will fit in the M.2 slot.

 

There is only going to be one key in the slot, not two, so nothing to block the card from fitting in the slot.

Hi:

 

As I explained above the wifi card's M.2 slot is going to have one key, not two.

 

So any wifi card with one or two notches cut into the contacts is going to fit.

 

The key is going to be where the inner notch is in the model  of the wifi card you posted.

 

The other notch is not going to make contact with the contacts in the M.2 slot.

 

If you look at chapter 5, page 38 of the service manual, you will see what I am referring to.

 

Notice the illustration of a wifi card with only one notch.  Wifi cards with two notches have that one notch in the same place so it will fit in the wifi M.2 slot key.
