N40L work with 6.2.2 on Jun's 1.03b?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I have a beefy xpenology box and am using a Synology DS416j as my offsite backup target.  It's just not hacking it anymore :) I'm thinking of replacing it with a cheap N40L.


If I add in an intel NIC, will this run the latest 6.2.2 using Jun's 1.03b bootloader?

 

I can't find a clear yes/no on this so thought I'd ask.

 

Thanks in advance for everyone's help.

Thanks Dfds, do you have one? If so how noisy are they?

 

The offsite is at our daughter's place and right now sits in her living room so noise will be an issue.

 

Thanks,

Oh I have read here and other places (too much probably :)). Most comments about sound levels are positive but there are some negative ones that worry me. I was just planning on replacing the two fans with silent ones but there are comments about the HP bios complaining when the fans spin too slowly.

To close the loop.

 

I ended up buying a gen 8 with a 1220L v2 already installed for a decent price. Hopefully the onboard AES-NI support will help.

 

Fan noise isn't silent but it's not bad.  We'll see if that changes as I move my drives over.

 

iLO is pretty cool.  I was able to get a 60 day full trial license from HP,  the remote console alone is tremendously useful.

 

Big thanks to @IG-88 for everything you do for this community. Your extra.lzma worked perfectly!

it really is cool when you can use a virtual serial port, to access the (serial) console when booting xpenology, over network
