Currently I am trying to hack the BIOS of my HP Compaq 6510b to allow me to put an Gigabyte WLAN Adapter in. I'm reading much about this, but everybody who has done this had a Phoenix Bios. Mine doesn't have one, don't know what kind of bios it is.

So I'm forced to use the HP Flash Utility, but when I modify my bios it just says "Bios Checksum Error".

Don't know how to flash otherwise or to skip the checksum test.

Thanks for Help.

Have you gone into the bios and read what it is!? This is important as we have to know what make it is and what version!

It's the newest Bios version F13 from HP website.

The only things I could find out are the Bios date 08/18/2008 and version F.13.

I managed to get the Gigabyte Card working by hacking the EEPROM. Now it's recognized as a Intel 3945 adapter. But I am not able to get it working under os-x or Windows.

Hi all. My BIOS is as well the HP 68DDU rom.bin used in a HP Compaq 6710b. I need to run an Atheros card! Anyone can suggest an entire whitelist workaround / fix for all cards in the future? I see here are some examples but nothing specific for the 68DDU.....

Newer HPs have EFI's, not BIOS's.
