Help install on HP microserver NL54

Recommended Posts

I have an HP MS NL54 with modded Bios 041 dated 10.1.13.

I followed the install instructions here:Tutorial: Install/Migrate DSM 5.2 to 6.1.x (Jun's loader) for a baremetal install

using image DS3615xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b which I successfully changed the grub.cfg file as per above instructions.

After rebooting with USB installed kernall booting show OK and I went back to the desptop PC to find,

The server was found on the network OK and I get presented with option to install software (it says latest with no option for other as far as I can see)Software installs takes about ten minutes and then problems. Reports it can't find server on the network even though it did earlier?

So now I'm stuck what to do. Am I using the correct image for the NL54?

Any help much appreciated.

I downloaded Jun’s loader v1.02b DS3615xs but there are so many too pick from I'm really not sure. The disc image is called DS3615xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b

I realise now that I should have selected to install the .pat file from download rather than just let install the latest software. Would I be right in thinking that and am I using the correct image for a N54L?

Thanks for listening

1) Disable C1E in the BIOS

2) Either download 6.1.7 15284 to your PC and use that as a manual install with the 1.02b loader you have prepared


   Download and use loader 1.03b DS3615xs and download and use 6.2.3-25426


It doesn't really matter which one you choose.


If that fails, you may need to wipe the hard disks due to the incomplete installation. ( I am assuming it was a new install)


Make sure you go to Control Panel>Update & restore and turn off automatic updating when you have successfully installed
