Spoof Wifi / CPU parameters to use Intel WiDi?

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

Hi,
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...

WIDI:

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WiDi

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
