  [HP ProBook 4330s] Disabling onboard WiFi in Bios disables WiFi Dongle

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On HP 4330s there's onboard WiFi.
  When enabled Ubuntu 14.04 functions normally.
  Both the onboard WiFi and a WiFi dongle work.

  When the onboard WiFi is disabled in Bios Ubuntu 14.04 disables not only the onboard adapter, but it also disables the WiFi Dongle.
  There's a message that WiFi is disabled by a hardware switch.

  Using the command rfkill unblock wifi or all doesn't do a thing.
  rfkill list shows there's hardware lock on WiFi.

  Please fix this.
  I triple boot and this behavior is present only in Ubuntu 14.04.
