Use your thumb and forefinger of left hand to press the PCB and HDD hardly then screw down (M3*6mm screws). 
X822 430p9.jpg


a) Place your Raspberry Pi on top of X822 and screw down (M2.5*6mm screws)
b) Connect the 2-pin power cable from X822 to Raspberry Pi pin header - Pin 4 (5V, Read wire) and Pin 6 (Ground, Black wire).
c) Insert the USB3.0 jumper

Optional -To use with X735 power management board
a) Unscrew 4 screws on the topside of Raspberry pi
b) Screw the M/F spacer (M2.5*12mm) down until it is hand tight 
c) Plugs the X735 straight into your Raspberry Pi's GPIO header and screw down (M2.5*6mm screws)
d) Connect the 2-pin power connection wire from the 5V out connector on X735 to X822 2-pin power socket

Power adapter must be connected to the X735 only , not X822 and Raspberry Pi

Booting from the X8 series storage board

This tutorial explains how to boot your Raspberry Pi 3 from the X8 series (X820 V3.0, X850 V3.0, X822, X852, X860, X870) storage board

Program USB Boot Mode

Before a Raspberry Pi 3 will boot from the X8 series storage board, it needs to be booted from an SD card with a config option to enable USB boot mode.
This will set a bit in the OTP (One Time Programmable) memory in the Raspberry Pi SoC that will enable booting from the X8 series storage board.
Once this bit has been set, the SD card is no longer required.
Note that any change you make to the OTP is permanent and cannot be undone.

You can use any SD card running Raspbian or Raspbian Lite to program the OTP bit.
If you don't have such an SD card then you can install Raspbian or Raspbian Lite in the normal way - see [ installing images | https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-images/README.md ]

First, prepare the /boot directory with up to date boot files:

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
The above step is not required if you use the 2017-04-10 release of Raspbian / Raspbian Lite or later.

Then enable USB boot mode with this code:

echo program_usb_boot_mode=1 | sudo tee -a /boot/config.txt 


This adds program_usb_boot_mode=1 to the end of /boot/config.txt.
Reboot the Raspberry Pi with sudo reboot, then check that the OTP has been programmed with:

$ vcgencmd otp_dump | grep 17:

17:3020000a
Ensure the output 0x3020000a is shown.
If it is not, then the OTP bit has not been successfully programmed.
If you wish, you can remove the program_usb_boot_mode line from config.txt, so that if you put the SD card in another Raspberry Pi, it won't program USB boot mode.
Make sure there is no blank line at the end of config.txt.
You can edit config.txt using the nano editor using the command:
sudo nano /boot/config.txt , for example.

Prepare the operating system image

Starting with the 2017-04-10 release of Raspbian you can install a working Raspbian system to the X8 series storage board by copying the operating system image directly onto it, in the same way that you would for an SD card.
To perform this step, follow the instructions here, remembering to select the drive that corresponds to your X8 series mass storage device.
Once you have finished imaging your X8 series storage board,
remove the USB data cable from your computer and insert the USB bridge into your Raspberry Pi and X8 series storage board USB ports.

Boot your Raspberry Pi 3 from the USB mass storage device

Powering it up.
After between five and ten seconds the Raspberry Pi should begin booting, and display the rainbow splash screen on an attached screen.

FAQ

  • A: Should I must change the boot sequence to my HDD/SSD ?
  • Q: No, it's all depends on you.
  • A: How to make a NAS storage from this product?
  • Q: 1. You need to part your partition by using fdisk command and make filesystem by using mkfs command, and create a directory and mount you disk on.
  • 2. install samba software by using apt-get install samba and modify the configuration file /etc/samba/smb.conf and start the samba service.
