This tool works for the N12000 and N16000 (probably the N4510 too) non-PRO models too.  You just need to find an old half-height VGA card that firs in one of the open slots.  In fact, you can remove the SAS controller card if you don't have an open slot.  Once you put in the VGA card, Linux starts a video TTY display and you can move forward to do all the steps in the procedure.
