N8800 upgrade - Craig - 08-03-2018

Hi all,

Thanks in advance for any help.  I have a N8800 that currently has no data on it and I want to use this as a media server.  To that end I was looking into whether I can upgrade the hardware to accept HDD's greater than 2TB.  Looking at N7700 info it appear that I need to upgrade the CPU (A T7600 seems to be the one but which type of T7600 the 9SD or the 9SJ?).

I also read that the DOM needs swapping out for the 8800PRO V2 DOM.

then the firmware would need upgrading to the 8800ProV2 firmware to support 64 bit.

Is it this simple or is there more to it?  Have I missed something Has anyone done this successfully?
