Was stuck in "Windows 10 stopped unexpectedly" loop, bypassed that & now W10 won't finish setup *or* boot up. Just powers off after initial Latte Panda boot screen.

I had the same problem with a 1A USB power adapter, after I tried a 2A adapter it works without problems, now.

How about the HUB?
How many voltage it can provide to "each" USB port?
I think you can try other adapter with 5V/2A

I've tried various hubs / direct powering, minimum 2.1amp & the one I'm using now is this:


It's not a power problem. Windows 10's installer appears to have screwed up & I can't get in.

On the adafruit link it says it's 3 amps. "4 high-power USB ports" so 0.75 amps on each of USB plug. Should be 2 amps for the LP. That my be what is wrong. It says the "US-plug 5V 3A power supply" but out 4 USB ports!

You could get like a USB Y cable to get power from 2 USB ports.

Still a Y cable on that would only = 1.5 amps.
