  1. Hi,

    Do you confirm that the NC360T Hack work on HP MicroServer? Do the ports work fine, how about Ling Aggregation and Jumbo Frames?


    1. The hack didn’t work for me as I cut too much off. Another user who sent in those recent pics cut less and has it working. I would assume LAGG would work fine?

      1. Theoretically it should work… I am gonna buy one in ebay and dremel it… Crossfingers! I’ll let you know the results…

  2. I can also confirm that the hack works!
    Great TIP ! It works like a charm!

    I dont have a dremel but I filed the part off using a fine iron file.
    ESXi 5.1 works great with it now.

    I had top put the card into a ASUS P5Q mainboard which works now.


  3. Are you using the modded bios on your N40L? I am facing some problems having the NC360T and the onbard nic enabled at the same time…

      1. Well, this is also what I was planning on doing. However if the onboard nic is enabled, then the only devices I can select in “Boot Device Priority” to boot from are the 3 network interfaces (2 from NC360T plus the onboard nic), and there is no “Hard Disk Drives” under “Boot Device Priority”. When I disable the onbard nic and reboot then I do get the “Hard Disk Drives” submenu, and in “Boot Device Priority” I get a selection of the hard disks and the NC360T… but this leaves only with the dual nic ports… makes no sense…

  4. Interesting. I won’t be doing that, much easier to cut a slit in a 1x port on the motherboard to allow for longer cards. Quite a standard procedure really, and it doesn’t damage anything.

  5. I tried this myself and even though I think I cut the card right, my system won’t boot. This is an Asrock H77 Pro4-MVP. In an old i7 system in a PCI-E x8 or x16 slot it will boot but won’t show up in the hardware. The uncut card did work fine is in this ‘old’ system with x8/x16 slot. Any thoughts?
