Installing an ODD in my HPE MicroServer Gen10

Recommended Posts

Well, it's not as easy as I thought but I'm getting there :) 

 

I'm taking a multipart approach so in Part 1 

 

I decide to try using a Schoondoggy ODD Mounting Bracket for the Gen8 MicroServer by turning it upside down and locating where I will need to modify the Mounting Bracket to work in the Gen10.

 

 

 

AS-Built:

HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 X3421

·         Blu-ray Burner BDRE BDXL Writer Drive BU50N

o   To Be Modified Schoondoggy Gen8 MS ODD mounting Bracket (See RESET Forums (HomeServerShow.com))

·         8GB RAM  - Stock

·         Windows 10 Pro x64

·         OS Drive: SATA Port 1 – Samsung 840 Pro 256GB loaded in Icy Dock’s EZConvert in Drive Bay 1

·         4K LG Monitor attached with DP cable – NOTE: 4K LG Monitor was also attached with HDMI cable via: “Active DisplayPort to HDMI 4K Adapter, Benfei DP to HDMI Ultra HD Converter”   -- both attachments seemed to work well.

·         SYBA SD-CM-UAUD USB 2.0 External Stereo Audio Adapter

·         External speakers with subwoofer

·         Logitech K120 Keyboard with mouse

·         Pioneer slim external USB 3.0 Blu-Ray BDR-XD05S

·         CyberLink PowerDVD 18 Ultra

And here's Part 2: Installing ODD in my HPE MicroServer Gen10

 

In Part 2 of installing an ODD in my MicroServer Gen10 I will drill a hole in a Schoondoggy ODD Mounting Bracket for the Gen8 MicroServer by turning it upside down and locating where I will need to modify the Mounting Bracket to work in the Gen10.

It works with BD Drives!

 

 

In Part 3 of installing an ODD in my MicroServer Gen10 I connect the Data and Power to the BU50N and power up my MicroServer Gen10. When I tested it I found that the Blu-Ray Works!

In Part 4 of installing an ODD in my MicroServer Gen10 I loaded a 4K UHD disk and tried to play it in PowerDVD but if failed because it could not install Intel’s SGX Runtime. So, for the time being I cannot play a 4K Optical Disk but I can play Blu-Ray’s as well as DVD’s in my MicroServer Gen10 X3421.
