HP uses whitelisting to only allow certain cards... at least they used to. I once ruined a motherboard trying to add my desired card's device ID to the bios whitelist. I know it's possible, but I know I'm never trying it again.
Most OEM PCs right now are equiped with seperate chips for BIOS and UEFI for cost reasons. If you trash one, it's entirely possible to use the other --but this won't last more than a few more months if MS gets their way.
I know this is a different model, but what's in this card, which makes it better than this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...UTF8&psc=1 ? It used to be 8 bucks, free shipping (seems they charge to ship now). Works pretty stable in my laptop, also has bluetooth in it.
I can confirm that the Lenovo G575, the wide-screen netbook, will not use anything but Lenovo cards. It's a bummer because this netbook is one of those super-rare former Thinkpads that do not have BlueTooth and my Dell-pulled 802.11a/b/g/n BlueTooth card will not work in it.
On the bright side, it already has 802.11b/g/n but without the "a" band.

Another positive for this card is that it supports Intel WiDi, So, it makes for a cheap wireless mirroring solution for your TV when you buy the receiver(saw one for around $30 ~ $35 recently from Netgear) from an older laptop.
