I suspect that you've been hoisted by your own petard with all of the
tweaks made. My N40L is running the stock BIOS. The only changes I've made:
* Delete 2GB RAM
* Install 8GB RAM
* Delete 250G HDD
* Install 4x 2TB HDD (2x Western Digital Caviar Black, 2x Western Digital

I've run three different illumos distros on this box without issue. I'm
currently running SmartOS on it from a USB stick, but I've installed
OpenIndiana on it from both USB stick and USB Bluray drive. I've also
installed OmniOS on it from USB Bluray drive. 

I'd be tempted to rollback on the changes you made and methodically push
forward, one change at a time, until it breaks. The N40L out of the box
should "just work".
