    Hi ,
    I have purchased the lattepanda (2g/32 unactivated) version recently and I tried to remove some unneeded interfaces from it , now I am unable to boot the board .

    I have booted the board successfully before trying to remove some interfaces on it but now it is not booting and the red light is always on .

    I am new to this and I would like to know whether there is a way to salvage the board. I request you to kindly look at the board images and suggest me what to do .

    I think you destroyed your LP classic.
    The PCB certainly has 6 to 8 inner layers with <0.1mm wide traces and micro vias. When desoldering the connectors strong mechanical forces occurred, as you can see on the photos at the yellow-orange places. These forces have probably torn up traces and/or broken vias.
    Soldering on multi-layer boards is a very difficult task... I don't do that with components with vias myself as a professional.
