    OK, I had the problem with the "Just a minute" issue.... but followed the instructions and everything went fine
    I setup Windows and set my password and rebooted....
    It does not accept my password and I am 100% certain it is correct
    I am locked-out and none of the suggestions for Windows 10 password reset have helped.
    How do I force the LattePanda to reinstall windows? it ignores the USB drive....

    Dear masterlink,

    We didn't provide the driver officially. However you could download the driver package from here: ... sp=sharing

    There're drivers for both of x86(for 2g version) and x64(for 4g version) system. Your testing result and suggestion will be helpful for us to optimize them.

    Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:
