Don't ask how to hack password. (BIOS Passwords)

The HP Compaq 6710b/6510b latest BIOS version F.15 found at URL (copy + paste) is really tough to modify.

It can be supposedly unpacked with the compdeconx.exe tool from URL (copy + paste) after stripping the all FFs Rom.bin file "header" of 65536 Bytes. The tool is said to NOT decompress correctly...

Furthermore, there seems to be only one whitelisted Intel 3945 Wi-Fi card (found when searching for the bytes 8680 - first appearance) So even if I change it to my new card - there is no way to fix the checksum, even with the ADDCC tool - all strings I try fail and the tool asks for another one time after time...

Can anyone help? Can anyone take on the challenge of cracking this whitelist protection?
