 The best workaround is to boot the Pi without the keyboard, and then use Secure Shell (SSH) to access the node to perform all configuration and setup. The other workaround is to temporarily remove the USB speed parameter. The best workaround is to boot the Pi without the keyboard, and then use Secure Shell (SSH) to access the node to perform all configuration and setup.

 The file that contains the boot-time parameter you need to change is cmdline.txt. It is accessible by putting the SD card into another computer and viewing the contents of the first partition. The file is also editable on the Pi itself - /​boot/​cmdline.txt. A reboot is required in order for the change to take effect. The file that contains the boot-time parameter you need to change is cmdline.txt.

-WARNING - If you take the SD card from the Pi and plug it into a Windows PC, it may ask you to format the disk because of the second partition it does not recognize. DO NOT format the partition, or you will lose your Pi installation.+**WARNING** - If you take the SD card from the Pi and plug it into a Windows PC, it may ask you to format the disk because of the second partition it does not recognize.
