Hi guys,

 

Can you guys tell me whether there is a WiFi-card whitelist in the ZBook G2's BIOS?

Hi:

 

That info isn't available to the public.

 

I have a HP 350 G1 business notebook and I was able to change the wlan card out for one not listed in the service manual and it worked just fine.  Replaced a dual band broadcom model for an Intel 7260 so I could use Intel WiDi.

 

I would have to conjecture that HP has removed the BIOS whitelists from all notebooks made within the last 18 months or so, because dozens of forum members have swapped out wireless cards in various notebook models made within that timeframe with no problems.

 

The only time someone will have an issue is if they try to put an Intel wireless card in a notebook with an AMD processor and chipset.

 

The BIOS won't reject the card, but it won't work for some reason.

Allright... Sounds fair to say the least. I've installed Mac OS X using Hackintosh, but that doesn't support the standard Intel 7260AC + BT... So I need a Broadcom BCM94352Z. Or have I looked wrong and does this PC have a PCIe mini port?

Hi:

 

Unfortunately, that I do not know.

 

Here is a link to the quickspecs for your notebook.  This would be the most comprehensive document listing what features it has.

I would think you'd have no problem installing the BCM AC wlan card.
