Your PC has a BIOS whitelist which prevents the installation of any wifi card but the original one that came with your PC from working.
If you want dual band AC, you will need to purchase a USB dual band AC adapter.
They make some pretty small ones nowadays that hardly stick out of the USB port.
This one for example, even has bluetooth.

Here is the link to the service manual.
Chapter 3 has the list of supported wifi cards.
You have to know a few things...
1. Some of the part numbers/descriptions listed in the manual are incorrect.
2. Most of them won't work on W10, assuming the BIOS even lets them work,
As I stated before...the only card that will most likely work is the original Ralink card, because your notebook is not a configured to order model where the BIOS allows for a few different model cards to be installed.
You must buy a card that has the HP part number on it or it will not work.
You are fighting a losing battle here, and all I am trying to do is to save you money and wasted time.
