XPEnology DSM 4.2 on HP N40L Microserver Follow up

I’ve noticed that my earlier post (here) on running XPEnology DSM 4.2 on a HP N40L Microserver gets a large number of hits on a weekly basis. Thought it might be a good time to post a follow up.

The software appeared to install fine and appeared to be operational much like a Synology NAS.

However despite everything seeming okay it was still a hack to get this working on a HP N40L Microserver no matter which way you look at it. I couldn’t get over that thought and as such wasn’t about to trust my data on the system.

So I opted to not use XPEnology DSM 4.2 on my HP N40L Microserver in the end. However I am sure plenty of people do use it and have no problem doing so. If you find any of my posts on this subject, and go on to use it. By all means post a comment so others can see that it’s being used by people with no problem.
