TerraMaster F2-220

Recommended Posts

That system uses a J1800 which is an Ivy Bridge processor.  The 1.04b loader/DS918 image combination requires Haswell or later, so your CPU is not supported.

On 1.03b/DS3615, you may be able to install DSM 6.2 but as soon as you get to 6.2.1 via initial install or upgrade, an Intel NIC is required as the kernel panics on non-e1000e devices.

 

So you may be out of luck with that hardware, given the current state of things.  1.02b/DS3615/DSM 6.1.7 may stand a better chance to work and it's still extremely supportable.

As for 1.04b, I also read that NIC limitation, but for 1.03b, there as several reports on this thread that point in another way, with successful boot on 6.2.

I'm quite way behind, because I can't even get the installation screen ( no IP).

Or I am lucky

Or it can not be hardware problem 

because I am using 6.2.1 with loader 1.04 without ploblem

and I don't think F2-220 have different hardware... so...

try again 

star with formatted usb

controll all configuration

I've the f4-220, and tested both the 1.03b ds3615 (DSM 6.2 update 2) and then the 1.04b ds918  (6.2.1 update 4) .

The best combo is to use the 1.03b ds3615 mainly because:

-there are many more third party packages available

-virtualbox 5.20 works (no package for apollo lake platform of the 918+)

-it's possible to use lm-sensors package to control the fan speed of our nas (otherwise it just spins upd and down constantly and in bios there's no option to control it)

...Just my two cents

Could you please share the bios settings that you used? I'm asking, because with 1.03b I get no IP on boot

i tryed lm-sensors with 1.04b+ds918

and it seems that the problem is the kernel module it87.ko that is not present on this distro...

And without that module, sensors not find the fan to command:

with sensor-detect

can we make it87.ko for 4.4.59+ kernel?

So when using 1.04b and DS918+, we use DS918+ SN from the picture (from the review site) and real mac address of the NIC in the F2-220?

 

Also, anybody tested to see if eudean's fan control will work for the F2-220? According to here, the same monitoring chip is used between the F4-220 and F2-220.

For me, the "old" serial works well also with 1.04b DS918+ (and also the real mac address)

For 1.03b loader you must have the vga cable to enter BIOS setup and modify boot sequence to boot from USB (the legacy one and not the UEFI one).

For fancontrol, I can confirm that the chip on F2-220 are the same... ITE IT8772E 

 

Eudean's use a different approach and use direct memory access (fancontrol is a compilated executable) to control the fan (instead lm-sensor control with fancontrol bash shell script)

 

So it's a little different from what I would like to do, but I think is a good start...

and like we always say: it's better than nothing! (if it works with loader 1.04b+DS918+ is exactly what we need to migrate from loader 1.03b+DS3615)

 

Thanks (i search many time the forum, but I didn't find that message)

Hi all,

Working on my Terramaster F4-220 today.

 

Could someone point me in the right direction to the correct files please. Also, is there a  serial number generator for 918+? I read that someone has it working, is the correct serial number required?
