You should consult with HP regarding what is supported on their hardware.

The AX1675x is a non-CNVi part. Unless the socket that you are plugging it into actually has support for CNVi (in this case, CNVio2), you cannot use the AX1690i nor the AX411. At the same time, the AX1675x is functionally equivalent to the AX210 and AX211 but, since these parts do not have the Killer optimizations in their firmware/drivers, this would actually be a downgrade.

It should be obvious that HP needs to answer whether the socket they provided actually supports CNVIO2 and whether this upgrade is supported in their BIOS implementation, etc. If not, you are out of luck.
