I had mine running Server 2012 and right now it's running Server 2016
I got 6 drives running on my 54 One from the optical sata and one from the esata at the back both inside the 5.25 bay. You guys need to update the tweaked bios first if you can still find it floating on the net.

Thanks mate, I'll see what I can find
Nice, that's where I want to be! Do you get full speed from the extra 2 ports?
Latest HP SPP
Name = P19473_001_spp-2019.09.0-SPP2019090.2019_0905.39.iso
Size = 5.73 GB
I've added BIOS mod files to the link above bud. (the SPP one)
Along with the ILO firmware update and the Java version needed to use the remote desktop.
Anyone got a MSL2024 within support. New firmware released and ours has expired.
Legend mate, thank you. Are they any special instructions? From the readme it appears you just have to run HPQUSB.exe then replace the ROM file? Does it need to be made a bootable USB drive?
That's it mate.
HPQUSB makes a bootable USB IIRC. so Run it, replace file and go.
You don't need anything like that. Right-click the ISO, select Mount, then run the batch file as admin.
That's for the HP SPP.
HPQUSB is for the Gen7 Microserver Modded BIOS bud.
Recently converted my N54L, which was running Ubuntu, to XigmaNAS. It's fine, but seriously let down by out-of-date documentation. Had a few issues with setting up NFS (leading to more than a few expletives). I found Ubuntu much easier to set up in that respect, but some of that is probably due to my limited understanding of it, and failure to amend autofs correctly for slightly different paths.
Has anyone here used shucked WD drives in their N54L? Will i need to do the 3.3v pin mod?
Shucked an easystore 8tb and mybook 8tb in my N54L and neither needed the pin mod.
Cheers fella! I've got 2 WD element drives to shuck and sort out over the festive break..
Time for a Christmas holiday project!
So I sold my HP Media Server EX490 as WHS was starting to fall out with W10 clients more and more and decided to join the Microserver world.
Gen 8 will be used as a CCTV box (9 streams)
Xeon 1240 V2
120GB SSD - Windows 10 Pro
4 x 3TB WD Purple
Gen 10 will be used to backup 4 x W10 pro clients and host network shares
240GB SSD - Windows Server Essentials 2016
4 x 2TB WD Red
Nice, still not bothered with a Gen10, extra RAM from the Gen8 is nice, but not as much upgradability..
To be honest I'm already starting to wonder if the Gen10 is up to the job.
Very few reasons exist to buy a G10, if you’d posted asking for advice, you would have got a number of different recommendations, it’s unlikely a G10 would have figured in any of them.
Oh well, I'll see how it goes. Gen8 seems like a good package overall.
Gen10 seems like an attempt to push people towards their racks and towers.
