Does the N54L have a modded BIOS that allows the 5th SATA plug to run at 6Gbps?


Recommended Posts

I saw on Reddit that there was a BIOS mod available for the N54L, that allows you to use the SATA port meant for the CD drive at 6Gbps, to connect to a HDD/SSD instead.


I have had to install a replacement drive as my boot drive, and the new drive is a SATA 3 SSD, so just wondered if it was possible?

There used to be a BIOS Mod -- check some of the "old" posts -- that worked on the N36L, N40L, and N54L but it only brought the SATA5 Port up to 3Gbps but if you want to run Windows 10 on your machine you'll need to find the latest official BIOS update - unfortunately the Mod wasn't made from that one..... AFAIK


If you want SATA3 (6Gbps) speeds you'll need to add a card.
