DMI Settings HP Elitebook 8470p

Hey guys,

we run several HP 8460p Notebooks with ZCM:FDE. They worked out of the box.
But these new 8470p won't work.

dmi dump
[Hewlett-Packard,HP EliteBook 8470p]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=Hewlett-Packard
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=HP EliteBook 8470p


After booting into PBA the following error occurs:
SNB Loading Bootcode
ERR SNB Partition (type 95h) not found


So i changed the policy dmi settings to:
[Hewlett-Packard,HP EliteBook 8470p]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=Hewlett-Packard
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=HP EliteBook 8470p
KICKSTART=KEXEC


Reason: The entry for the 8460p model look exactly the same
[Hewlett-Packard,HP EliteBook 8460p]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=Hewlett-Packard
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=HP EliteBook 8460p
KICKSTART=KEXEC


But they don't work either
So i checked the following linkhttps://forums.novell.com/novell-product-discussions/endpoint-management/zenworks/configuration-management/zcm-11/zcm11-full-disk-encryption/453943-boot-error-during-initial-pba-setup.html
and documentation.

AHCI is enabled in BIOS, and added
KERNEL_PARAM=pci=snb-enable-ahci-to-legacy

to the DMI settings

Which lead to this entry
[Hewlett-Packard,HP EliteBook 8470p]
DMI_SYS_VENDOR=Hewlett-Packard
DMI_PRODUCT_NAME=HP EliteBook 8470p
KICKSTART=KEXEC
KERNEL_PARAM=pci=snb-enable-ahci-to-legacy


But i still got the above error message! Can u help me?

P.S. I even tried to force the settings into dmi.ini in the c:\windows\... folder
