Odroid H2 use

Post by Amitsabharwal77 »

I ordered Odroid H2 recently.

I connect it with HDMI to my Television and power ON the device. But it displays nothing. 

1) So I need to install any OS compulsary in this to operate?
My friend ordered SD Card based odroid and it worked for him without installing any OS.

2) Do I need any external storage compulsary apart from 16 GB eMMC chip that I buy with my H2 device to operate or it has some basic storage available with it?

Please help !

Did you install a compatible SO-DIMM DDR4 memory?
https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-h2/hardware/ram
Otherwise, the H2 board will not start the BIOS.

No.. do I need to buy this separately?
I buy only 16 GB eMMC card. What is difference between this and DDR4 memory?
And where I can buy this DDR4?

Right. You have to buy it separately.
The eMMC is a non-volatile media to store the OS and software for example Linux/Ubuntu/Debian or Windows.
OS and application software runs on the volatile memory DRAM (DDR4) like normal PC or Laptop computers.

Search Amazon or Google with the part number in this compatible RAM module list.

Normally, a single DDR4 SO-DIMM must be okay.
If you plug two modules, you will have around 10~20% of performance gain when you run some GPU/Video intensive workloads thanks to the dual channel wider data bus width.

No, it needs to be an SO-DIMM. There are are verified modules here: https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-h2/hardware/ram

What seems to be the problem? You haven't installed an OS yet, right?

The H2 emmc is sold blank, since there are a ton of operating systems you can choose from.

Run the installer from usb. It will prompt you and ask where to install ubuntu and it should show the emmc.

Can you see any eMMC information on this BIOS menu?
Chipset → South cluster configuration → SCC configuration

How did you plug the eMMC module to the H2 board?

If the eMMC is correctly detected, you have to see a BIOS screen something like this.

Please change the interface mode to HS200 from HS400.
Save it and reboot and check the eMMC information.

To fit into the Type-2 case, you need a M.2 NVMe SSD or eMMC.
If you want to connect a SATA HDD or SATA SSD, you need the power cables with a different type of case.

BTW, did you buy the H2 and eMMC from our web-store directly?
or your local distributor/reseller?

Right. You need a power cable since it is not an industry standard one. Sorry about that.
If you want to connect two SSD/HDD, your need to buy 2 sets,
https://www.hardkernel.com/shop/sata-da ... wer-cable/
Many people recommended the WD Red HDDs for much better storage reliability.

Anyway, please try the HS200 eMMC interface mode first once you can.

I read this thread.. but my emmc never gets detected.. I tried reboot several times.. looks that either emmc port or emmc chip is having issue.
Moreover since SATA is the only option left.. can you let me know config of HDD or SSD that is needed or I can buy or any random will work.

We need to investigate where is the problem.
Could you any clicking/mating sound when you install the eMMC module to the H2 board?
I mean something the eMMC firmly seated it onto the connection.

Any SATA storage devices will work with H2 if you have a proper SATA power and data cables.

Did you buy your H2 and eMMC module from our web-store directly?
Or, other distributor/reseller?
