I bought 2 new stk1aw32sc Intel Compute Stick. They are dated 06/2017.
They both started to update as soon as I added WiFi. After this - one of them is working fine, but the other one just wont open windows. Every time it reaches windows login screen (with the background) or even earlier it just turns itself of. I cant get in to windows, I have done the following:
F7 Boot Menu - Updated BIOS to the version supplied on your web site
F8 Boot Menu - Recovery Mode
I have read on lots of forums but no solution seems to work. Please help me out.
Ps. Also, your forum is in mixed Swedish, Japanese and Enlish for me ; )
Hello, TheJesper. Thank you very much for sharing your issue with the Intel Communities Team. I will be more than glad to assist you.
I sent you a private message, please verify your inbox.
Thanks for your prompt reply. I have actually got it up and running again and I will give it a little bit of time hoping it will not break again.
This is what I have done...

I will now evaluate the two sticks. I think whats making them break is 1) Windows Updates - that are apparently not supported, as well as 2) Unexpected shutdowns.
I will try to keep you posted if anything breaks again. Thanks/Jesper
Added info for solving some issues (2018-05-13):
One very important thing that I discovered recently was that it is very important what ampere your power adapter is giving as output. I found that if too low, the Intel compute stick were booting fine at first, but when loading high graphic content like the windows login screen, it would just shut down. Took me a while to connect this with the usb-adapter. I bought a bulk version of the stick so now cables or adapters were included.
Anyway, I found out that 1.5A should be sufficient to make it run, you can also try with higher outputs I guess if you get problems. Also, I was using a USB hub with one port with higher amp output, but when connecting other devices it amp would be distributed to the other ports, making the stick turn of. Hope this helps someone...
