Hi,

Found this thread extremely helpful, thanks to all who have contributed!

I was able to install 2.4.1 on to the 1GB CF card by using the VGA hack and putting the installer image on a sata drive. I did have to plug the CF in shortly after boot though so it booted from the sata drive first...

I also had to manually partition the drive as it complained that it wasn't a full 1GB.

I found than once installed I could enable the serial console by modifying /boot/device.hints and switching the IRQ and Address for the uart:

hint.uart.0.at="isa"
hint.uart.0.port="0x2F8"
hint.uart.0.flags="0x10"
hint.uart.0.irq="3"
hint.uart.1.at="isa"
hint.uart.1.port="0x3F8"
hint.uart.1.irq="4"

I got the LCD working by simply installing the LCDproc package and configuring it for Parallel port 1 and Watchguard Firebox with SDEC. I made a few other setting changes to my preference, including setting the backlight to on, however it seems to switch off again after a short time.

Now I just need to sort the noise! - Anything I can help with mppkll?

Any updates to the program to control the fans and LCD on the XTM 8 Series?

I'm looking at selling this XTM 850 on eBay and need to know if there's a way to return the internal hard drive back to factory defaults?

I have the SD card back to factory and it boots to the OS, however during testing of pFsense I used the drive. Is there a way to return for use with the embedded OS before I sell it?

Thanks,

If Iím not mistaken, which I often am, I do not believe these shipped with internal drives other than the CF.

Mine had the 2GB CF card installed and a 250GB SATA hard drive mounted in a factory mount and connected.

I stand corrected. Do you have a picture of the mount?
