I am part of the club now!  I broke down.  I gues S2012E will go on this once it arrives.

 

Here come the newb questions! 

 

How much RAM is in it?

Can I upgrade it?

Should I flash the bios?

 

;)

2GB up to 16 GB stable

 

No need to flash the BIOS AFAIC.

Dave, so far it seems that more people have had success using 16GB in the N54L than the N40L.

I just bought this deal. Got the 8GB Ram and 4 x 2TB WD Red drives.  Can't wait to get it here and start working on it.  I am moving from a HP MediaSmart 487 that just crashed on me.  I am planning on putting Windows 2012E on it.  I have a lot to learn, but it is exciting to get back in to building my machines.  Thanks to everyone on these forums for educating me on the selection of my next server and for all the help that I am going to get as I start building this new server.  

 

Thanks.

David

and this forum is a reference for more than the regular 'guys'.

If somebody pops in here and sees your post, buys 16GB and it doesn't work, what are you going to do? 

I just think we need to be clear when handing out advice.

If someone buys outside the standard without researching, then shame on them.  We have members running 16GB on the N40L's but not consistently, but I cannot remember a single post with a N54L not being able to use 16GB.

That's my point, people use this forum as a research site.

I don't mean to beat you up, I think we all need to be careful with the information we share.

maybe a better way to say it is, 'HP certifies the box to 8GB, but several users of the forum have 16GB running stable. Here are the part numbers they are using,,,,,,,'

To study for my MCSA SQL Server exams, I've been debating whether to buy a Microserver or build a whitebox. This price just ended the debate. Now, it's time to figure out what else I need to get the server ready for hyper-v and six or seven WIndow guests. 

 

Thanks for the tip on the deal. Very much appreciated.

      Hi 
      My HP Proliant Microserver Gen 8 won't install HP Tools when I have running HP Smart Update Manager. 
      even when I have trying to install via Intelligent Provising, Windows Server 2019.
       
      Se image below 🙂 That's I missing.. ;-(

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.

      I want to rebuild my stock N54L. My preferred line of thinking is to use a PCIe X-16 card and about a 240Gb NVME M.2 SSD as my boot drive. I'm concerned about the BIOS seeing this though and being able to use it as a bootable device. Anyone tried something like this yet? I'm wanting to use all 4 drive cages for storage drives. I can't find anything in the bios regarding UEFI so I have to wonder if this is even possible or could there be a bios mod out there that would work?
       
      My alternative setup would wind up being a regular SATA SSD and replace the DVD drive with it. I'd rather the speed of the NVME PCIe setup though if its possible.
       
      Anyone?

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

      FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.
