The answer is the same for both:  6.2.3 Update 2 with juns DS3615xs loader v1.03b in legacy BIOS only.

UNLESS you are successfully using disk hibernation on the Gen 8 in which case, disk hibernation may not work on 6.2.3. In that case, you want to try 6.1.7 (juns 1.02b loader).

C1 needs to be disabled in BIOS for the N54L and if you previously had version 5 installed on the box, then you need to find and delete the hidden /.xpenoboot directory before the upgrade to 6.2.3.

The linked post is about upgrading a Gen 8 with a crashed drive, but the posts about the upgrade are relevant.
