how to enable the 2nd serial port ?

Hi, i've verifying on the detailed specifications of the M51type 8142 that it haves 2 serial 9-pin ports, and one of them is located outside (obviously) and for the other one I need a "special cable specified with the code 49P4530 or 49P4529". I don't have this cable and I'm trying to use a similar, but the BIOS shows only the first one (COM1) and nothing about COM2... I don't have done an BIOS update yet (on the txt doesn't talk nothing about a COM2 fix), and my question is: how can I enable this second port?


I need this second port working to control 2 no-breaks in the same desktop, anyone can help me?


Here's the link for the M51 model:
