HDMI 1.4 can handle 2560x1600 @ 60 Hz, but I don't know if the ZR30w would accept a single-link HDMI signal. The only adapter that would work in your case is an active HDMI to DisplayPort converter (not DisplayPort to HDMI), and I don't know if the converter will automatically pick up 2560x1600 without a custom resolution or EDID override.

Is 2560*1440 feasible with single link?
That's why I assumed that it is a dual link because it drove that resolution -when I tested it on a different monitor
I would not mind having the the HP zr30w working at that resolution (2560*1440) with black bars on top/bottom nor if it worked in 30hz but it does not powerup with any different settings other than 1280*800 60hz and 2560*1600 60hz because it doesn't have a scaler built in*.

*Before buying it I thought for sure that it would work at least with lower resolution/hz.
I didn't know that monitors exist without scallers that don't worked with lower resolutions/hz.

If there is a hack/workaround that allowed me to force lower resolution/hz I would be happy to give it a try!
