Spoof Wifi / CPU parameters to use Intel WiDi?

#1 Post by flyingfishfinger » Wed Dec 27, 2017 7:37 am

Long shot here but does anyone know if it's possible to spoof what Wifi & CPU are present in a particular machine to make Intel WiDi / Miracast work?
The install utility doesn't even start on an X62 because it complains about the CPU too...

short article on WiDi and Miracast, note both standards are not same and is switched to Miracast after intel ended the WiDi support version.


If the creators who designed x62 did not pay for royality on this standard, you are out of question. I do not like half baked experimentals like this since I rewiewed the articles on chinese custom boards.

Cheers, thinkpadcollection
