1. Download the F.58A bios update from HP and go ahead and install.
2. Stop after install and do NOT flash
3. Exit out and go to C:\SwSetup\SP36774. (this sp number will be different for different BIOS)
4. Edit the phlash.ini (either under swinflash(32bit system) or Winphlash64 (64bit system)
4a. Under the [UI].. set hideall=0 and add in Advanced=1.
5. Right click the flash.exe and run as administrator and this will allow you to specify the BIOS (swinflash.exe=32bit and winphlash64.exe=64bit)
6. Choose the patched bios that you downloaded.( .WPH file) (Vista users might have to disable UAC)
7. Flash and let your laptop shutdown
8. After the laptop has shutdown completely, wait a little bit and then hit the power button
9. Boot into OS X and if your card is OS X friendly, you might have to add it in through Network under system prefs.
If you have a DV series laptop and you are having problems with the dreaded 104 unsupported error message. Post here with your bios version, Ven ID, Dev ID, and subsys ID of your original wifi card and I might be able to help you out.
**EDIT** - I have patched the original F.58A bios to bypass the whitelist and left the original HP Invent by request. Enjoy! (Labeled HP 30CCF58A)
**EDIT** - The BIOS F.29 for the DV6000t system(intel) is patched and can be located here - http://forum.insanel...howtopic=124283
**EDIT** - F.59A is now out. I have done the same patch to it as I did the F.58A. I haven't had a chance to test it out on my system yet. But I don't think it should cause any problems, nothing changed in regards to stopping the whitelist check.
