crack open those HP machines, and see if they are a supported mobo. My guess is they are serverworks chipset, which means no good thing, as serverworks absolutely refuses to help with linuxbios.
I would not say that serverworks is a lost cause. But it is quite true that no one has yet succeeded in getting traction while working with them.

Given the number of heatsinks on important boards lspci tends to be a better way of recognizing high level chips.
