Although it's indeed focused on Linux, I don't think there's actually any Linux-specific code in fwupd. I've not tried to get fwupd installed on FreeBSD but I think it should be possible if the required dependency versions are in place. Some of the optional plugins are Linux specific (e.g. the UEFI UpdateCapsule one) but you can just compile that out.

HP have not included this model on the LVFS yet, but once they do there's no reason why it shouldn't work.
