I have Sierra MC7710 miniPCI-E modem and HP EliteBook 2740p notebook.
In original, the Qualcomm Gobi 2000 card installed in this notebook.
I replaced it with MC7710 card, but it doesn’t work because of WWAN Whitelist BIOS restriction (notebook does not start and display BIOS error “unauthorized WWAN”). In a word, any WWAN cards can work in this notebook only if their’s VID/PID stored in the BIOS whitelist.
Unfortunately, there is no way to patch BIOS or disable WWAN restrictions on this notebook model.
Can I change VID and PID of my MC7710 for bypass “WWAN Whitelist” and get this card work with my HP notebook?
As example, my MC7710 have VID 1199 and PID 68a3 and “whitelisted” Gobi card have VID 03F0 and PID 251D.
I need to change MC7710’s VID and PID to 03F0/251D, and then, I hope, notebook will boot and MC7710 card will work (of course, i will change VID/PID in driver .inf file too).
Can anyone help me with this modification?
Thanks in advance.
