Very common hardware quirk/limitation.
So you think it has to do with anti-ghosting, cheap/Partial NKRO? So sending the probook to hp for repair wont help unless they build in a new keyboard version? Wonder if hp service would communicate at all the keyboard version they currently build in... i rather feel like not sending it in for „repair“ as their Service Hotline suggested in the phone.

It has to do with the way the hardware works (scans for keys). I'm not a hardware engineer, so I don't understand why such a design was chosen.

Your keyboard is not defective; it is working as designed.

My guide/repo does not generate a serial# for you at all. The serial is something you determine by config.plist/SMBIOS or smbios.plist/SMBIOS content.
Thanks, I just want to make sure if I am following it right.

Mojave requires the beta branch (as is clearly stated in post #1).
You're not using it.

It is in post #1.
Use at least the 'beta' branch.
Better yet, use 'beta_weg'.
And if you want cutting edge, use 'applealc' branch.

I tried beta branch too. In official Mojave on my Elitebook everything works good except audio.
