[Issue] Problem mounting/detecting the Proxmark3

I've just acquired a Proxmark3 Kit, and it can't seem to mount. Fresh out of the box it was correctly showing up under COM ports in device manager on my windows 10 physical machine (not VM). I've followed the getting started guide for windows and encountered no problem. When I was finished setting it up, I was able to connect to it and all was working great.

The problem came out when I plugged in the LF antenna. Once I've plugged it in, my proxmark3 showed up under USB devices in device manager and wasn't recognized.

# LF antenna:  0.00 V @   125.00 kHz
# LF antenna:  0.00 V @   134.00 kHz
# LF optimal:  0.00 V @ 12000.00 kHz
# HF antenna:  0.60 V @    13.56 MHz
# Your LF antenna is unusable.
# Your HF antenna is unusable.

No response from Proxmark. Aborting...

I then unplugged the Proxmark3 from the computer, unplugged the antenna, and plugged the Proxmark3 alone back in. At this point it wasn't showing up at all. I then decided to plug it in my Kali Linux 2018.1 physical machine (not VM) and didn't showed up either when I typed "dmesg | grep ttyACM". I've read a lot about issues on the internet and every time they mentioned the function button on the proxmark3 and that when they keep it pressed down it shows up, so I tried it and again, nothing was showing up.
At this point I don't know what to do and could use some help haha!
Anyways, kind regards.

Re: [Issue] Problem mounting/detecting the Proxmark3

You are runing on a un-released source code version from Rysccorp.  I suggest you turn to them to ask your questions.
We usually can answer questions regarding the offical open-source pm3 repo.
