I just wondering if someone tries to "rebrand" HP SN2100 or 2700 to standard Mellanox switch, software from Mellanox is working but still, there is HPE logo, just wondering how to burn MLNX firmware on ASIC. The main problem is port limitation on HPE (additional license).

Been looking into that too.
Have you checked if it is an ONIE based switch? (ONIE option on console on boot?)
Have not had the time to check

No I did not check yet but I'm pretty sure that ASIC firmware should be overwritten similar as you do with VPI cards.

There is no problem to activate these ports. This is your choose: to pay full price for standard Mellanox or cost-lest version of HPE and buy then activation.
Of course you can easily extract all firmwares for each switch from Onyx package and try to re-brand. But nobody will say you that you don`t get a brick.
Even with Card could be an issues.

You can write PM if you need additional ports.
