Thanks for your time camiloml. Is there any chance that serial console redirection is unlockable when using the remote access card?

Serial console redirection settings are typically under Advanced > IPMI Configuration. It may look like this:

Hi, where to find the tool for editing the Flash File?

Is it the "AMI Bios Configuration Programm"?
I have my new N54L have the latest BOIS SP64420, is it compatible with this MOD BIOS ?

Check out my new build based on latest BIOS (01/10/13). I tested it on my HP N54L and it works like a charm. It should resolve some incompatibility with latest version of Windows (8.1 and 2012 R2).

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

Hi Andy,

guess the zip is the original HP file and the .rom is the modded ROM-image.
So in worst case you have both, original and modded ROM. Smile


Thanks for the great work on the BIOS first of all!

Thinking about buying an N54L and using the ODD-bay for the included HDD but I am thinking about the SATA-cable.

Will an "ordinary" angled SATA-cable (i.e. right-angled in both ends) be the best both in terms of the harddrive at the top and at the motherboard on the bottom?
Can I even run a SATA-cable on the right (when facing the server from the front) side from the motherboard?

Saw this guide and that got me thinking:

So I already will buy an angled SATA-Molex power adapter but stuck on which type (i.e. which angle and how both ends should be angled) of SATA-cable I should buy.
Guess it will do with even an ordinary (straight) cable but if I could buy a better solution from the start I will of course do that.

You guys think a 50cm cable should work (from the motherboard and then to the left or right of the inside of the chassi and then to the ODD-bay)?

This might seem as a silly question but like my cables to be drawn nice and not having any stress on them or the connectors they are plugged in to.

Extremely grateful for your insight / TheSwede86
Hi all,

My name is Philippe, and I'm reading numerous post for now to build a NAS base on HP N54L with modded BIOS. I saw in the forum that 4 To drives are unofficially compatible with HP N54L motherboard, but does someone knows if the last modded bios ensures compatibility with new WD Red 6 To drives too ?
Thanks in advance.
Awesome just Bios modded my N54L to get full speed on 5th sata port lovely to see an extra over 100 MB/sec on read and write on my SSD
