this is about the Elitebook 2170p I now own 😛 (barebones ebay, bought the tray and battery seperate but with a samsung 850 pro I had laying around this thing is quite zippy 😄
the integrated smartcard reader has a driver, but I dunno which smartcards are supported nor can I find instructions how to write to a card in order to lock my laptop to the card. There seems to be no application to download in windows 10 and I dunno if there is one in windows 7 because I just installed windows 10, albeit with dual boot so if it's 7/bios only that would be cool. I saw some blank smart cards on ebay but I dunno if they are compatible, and then there is still the issue of the missing application to customize the smart card to ensure that my laptop can recognize it and it only.
the elitebook 2170p has an alcor smart card reader.
