HP EliteBook 840 G4


Works without problems with both R4.0.4 and R4.1, using BIOS and dual booting with ubuntu. Camera and microphone work, fingerprint reader does not (no driver).

Thank you @GWeck for your report, which is now available in the HCL.

Does this still work with with this laptop as of today?

I am still using it as my main mobile device, running Qubes R4.0.4 with a lot of different VMs, up to Windows 11.

Thank you , I wanted to confirm before purchasing one

Added report for Qubes R4.1 - works as well as R4.0.4, but with better Windows support (thanks to @jevank),

Thank you @GWeck and sorry for the delay in processing it. Your R4.1 report is online now!

Thank you!
I have an Elitebook 840 G3. Skylake .
Is there any way to flash the bios with installation of qubes, in one or 2 steps so that it has coreboot or the like and the most secure OS as well as bios on my machine? I would so deeply appreciate this.
The specs on my laptop are still decent with great ports. Would love to update the security and privacy.
Kindly reply at your earliest convenience.

I am afraid I have no information on this. My laptop came with Windows 10 / UEFI pre-installed. I just enabled legacy BIOS in the UEFI/BIOS setup and installed Qubes (at that time R3.2) on it, even without disk encryption, because this is just a test machine where I have no security requirements and no valuable data. So I have no idea if and how the BIOS could be flashed there.
