That's why I'm still keeping one old 512 MB flash drive. It's perfect for this purpose.
Yes, what I meant

Than'k you BibDonkey,
The original kext is loaded but I have this error in the kernel.log (si_doattach: srom_var_init failed: bad srom), what do you think about this ?

Regards.
If you have enough room better get full size card. They are known to work better with Apple drivers than half-size.

I went to the above thread, it's about rebranding the card to make it "Apple branded" but in order to pass the whitelist, you have to make it "HP/Compaq branded".

I have (AR9485 802.11 bgn) wifi card in my laptop. It's range is low and speed is bad. Can i install a new 802.11ac card in my laptop? I don't know if it is compatible with my laptop.

Can anyone help me, please. I have a 4530s. I am running 10.11.6 with a 1080p screen, 8gb RAM and a 512gb SSD. It runs perfectly, everything works. Been this way for years.

Recently I thought I’d like to upgrade the WiFi card from the b/g/n that it came with. I bought the following:

HP Broadcom BCM943224HMS Wireless Wifi N Half Card 582564-001 802.11abgn

..but when I boot, it gives me an unsupported error in BIOS, error 702. BIOS is the latest 63 version (I just updated it to that, from 60, but the issue remains).

I thought this card was supported, no?

You cannot install that card in the 4530s due to the BIOS whitelist.
See guide for recommended WiFi for your model:

Thank you. That post says “You can also use a rebranded AR5BHB92 (AR9280”. So I bought one, but I still get the white list error. See attached.
To use an AR9280 (AR5BHB92), you must rebrand it as an HP AR9285.
You can use search to find the rebranding guide.
