If you choose "Load Optimal Defaults" from BIOS it will enable on defaults some improvements:
  • Hot Swap HDD
  • SATA II (3.0GBps on all SATA ports)
  • ACPI v3.0

Enjoy!
Just flashed this ROM. Flashed OK and booted up ESXi correctly. Seems legit but a bit more information in your post would be nice.

When you mention "It should resolve some incompatibility with latest version of Windows (8.1 and 2012 R2)" do you include if 2012 R2 runs in ESXi? Because Im having trouble with a HDD, ESXi and 2012 R2.

Thank you

i found another copy of this rom elsewhere and it seemed to flash correctly now. the only issue im having is that i have an LSI based raid card and it tells me online i need to enable interrupt 19, on the main bios page, but i cant seem to find this... is it only available in certain versions of the bios?

I see there are two files attached to your post that bear the names assigned by HP and that are the same name as the new BIOS I downloaded from HP and installed. Are these files the HP downloads that may be difficult to get if your machine is out of warranty or are they files that you have altered?

The SP64420.exe is the program I downloaded from HP and it generated o41100113.rom that is now flashed to my HP BIOS. I did this because I am running Windows 2012r2.

I am desperately seeking a solution that will provide me at least one eSATA port with port multiplication and I understand this is provided by o41072911mod.rom. This bios mod is based on a previous bios that had problems with Windows 2012r2.

As an alternative I am also looking for Jbod PCI3 eSata card with port forwarding. The StarTech PEXSATA332I card does not have a driver for Windows 2012r2 and I cannot find one that does.

Thank you for your advice.

Hi,

I flashed the BIOS sucessfully and "Load Optimal Default". But where can I see that the new features (Hot Swap HDD, SATA II support for the fiths port and ACPI 3.0) ist activate.
So far, the newly installed bios seems not to be different from the original version.

Many Thanks.

OK, the problem is solved. I flashed the original HP bios because I renamed the orignal file by adding "org" to the filname and copied the modded file on the USB Stick. The flash.bat file refers to the file "O41100~1.rom", which is the original bios.
The modded bios has the file name "O41100~2.rom" if you boot from the USB stick.
After updating the flash.bat all works fine.

Many Thanks.

Me too! Thanks! I'm running 5 hard drives now and it's sweet!

   

It took me a while to mount the 5th hard drive properly because of the tight space. The first time the bracket wouldn't slide in when the fat bit was on the bottom (U===U). It went in okay upside-down U style though. The next problem was that the adapter bracket was pushing up on the bracket holding the power button and indicator lights, forcing the button to be always engaged with the lid back on. Finally I moved the slidey mounting screws forward so that the HDD bracket would clear the indicator light/power button bracket. I had to bend that bracket back down a little to disengage the power button properly.

Good luck to everyone else thinking of trying this! Totally worth it!

FYI for the 5th HDD you will need:
  1. Male molex to SATA power adapter
  2. SATA cable
  3. 5.25 to 3.5 adapter bracket
  4. 4 screws (secure HDD to adapter bracket)

Does this work on the N40L as well?
