I’m planning to upgrade my Zbook by installing a Wireless AC-capable WiFi module. I’ve found a cheap one that’s compatible according to the service manual: the Intel 7260HMW. However, it doesn’t have an HP SPS, it seems to have come from a DELL laptop.

Has anyone tried this? Will it work? I guess I’ll find out the hard way!

Hopefully, the seller will allow me to test the adapter before buying.
