I'm trying to connect my LP to a 2TB 2.5" SATA SSHD drive via a USB3 to SATA adapter and am not having much luck.

The adapter has its own power supply so its not a lack of power problem.

On booting the LP gets stuck on BIOS code 92 and so never boots. If I only connect the drive once LP has booted then I do get to see a Drive D in explorer but I can't access it.

Disk Manager does find the drive after a while but just gives various errors if you try and partition the drive.

I've also tried partitioning the drive on another PC via the USB converter and that works fine however plugging the successfully partitioned drive (either formatted or left as RAW) still fails to boot with code 92 and still won't read if plugged in once Windows has booted.

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Many thanks.

Hi, the power supply you used is 2A or 2.5A? We have two different model supply!
And the LattePanda need 5V and at least 2A current to boot up, so with the 2TB SSHD will need more current! :?:
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

The USB to SATA converter has a separate 2A power supply so the SSHD should be powered by that. The SSHD is rated at 1A. I'm using a 4A supply for the LP with a thick cable to supply the LP.

So power shouldn't be a problem.

It would be great to know if anyone else has successfully attached a SATA drive using a USB to SATA converter to the LP
