In your case it will be locked because your BIOS is a highly modified version of the generic.  HP has a nasty habit of embedding things into their BIOS and other hardware so you need to be very careful.

A few years back they embedded  the modem and sound board together (well parts of each actually...in any case it was uuuugly).  When people made changes to this equipment they found themselves with multiple functions no longer working and there was no way around it but to replace both with either the original product (which could no longer be obtained) or replace them both which still left the user with an annoying boot error that never went away.
