I have 4 X 4TB drives plus an SSD in a N40L, cant remember if the standard hp bios update I installed was required to do it. Cant see why it wont go work with higher drives. Others run a 5th drive off the external eSATA cable but I have never got that to work.
slider: Still running my N40L, Win10. Would like to make it quieter anyone got any ideas? If you're willing to open things up and do a bit of soldering, I took out the horrific fan from my n36 PSU (same design) and installed a 40mm "silent" arctic something or other, and also replaced the big 120 with a far quieter model. Made it much more bearable and never had any problems with stability or overheating
I’ve a HP media server running WHS v1 that’s been mainly off for a year or two as WHS is way old and not secure. It’s my summer project it bring it back to life somehow so it can backup the two main PCs as it used to do under WHS Not sure how yet probably go with server 2019 and pay Microsoft too much money, but that’s all I need it for other than a big NAS as we don’t really stream much from it any longer as I have a VM with all our MP3s on running Logitech’s Squeezeserver for music duties in the house
Just an FYI, whilst still very good, that is 2 years old. Look up Medicat USB, a very complete toolkit but does need a 64GB+ USB stick by default, can be made to fit on a 32GB.
An ISO like this has password reset tools which may help: https://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/ You can 'burn' it to a USB stick to boot from.
