Re: Power

Likely you are having an amp shortage, so delay the pi on, or add isolation circuitry / micro UPS.

Re: Command line start script

You can run something in the foreground on login by adding it to .bashrc or the like.
If you really want it prelogin you need to manually attach to the display.

Likely.

NTFS is hard to get running fast.
I use LVM+ext4

If you want to avoid a powered hub look up how much wattage your devices pull... or you know just try it.
