Device information

This is a work in progress with information about the HP ProBook 430 G4. There are many configurations for these models of HP Probooks. The information below are given from a model HP ProBook 430 G4/822C, BIOS P85 Ver. 01.03 12/05/2016, shipped with a Core i5-7200U, 8GB, 256GB SSD. The notebook supports exchanging two memory modules and support one 2,5" disc drive and one M.2-SSD. The UEFI bios allows legacy boot.

A review in German is available here: HP ProBook 430 G4 review. Basic hardware works out of the box. No configuration was needed. Information for the "Not tested" units will be posted additionally.

Backlight

I have not found a solution so far to control the backlight via kernel hardware control keys via kernel. So backlight control works only via software. It works out of the box under Xfce and under i3wm I use a custom command using " xbacklight -inc/-dec 10".

ACPI errors

There are lots of acpi related error messages with kernel 4.9.x:

Upstream report: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=194833 - this error may be caused by adding the 2nd memory module and/or a broken BIOS implementation.

Kernel 4.11 will included a fix for a 10 second boot delay that will be shortened to below 3 seconds with this patch: https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=c3a696b6

Graphic card setup

Either modesetting driver or Intel driver seem to work well. I'm using the Intel driver here. DRI3 seems to work well.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf
Section "Device"
      Identifier  "Intel Graphics"
 
     #Driver      "modesetting"
     #Option      "AccelMethod"     "glamor"
 
      Driver      "intel"
      Option      "AccelMethod"     "sna"

     #Option      "DRI"             "2"

     Option      "Backlight"       "intel_backlight" # use your backlight that works here

This one can be fixed with appending pci=noaer to the kernel boot line.
