    Hello. As long as the power supply you got will power your pedals well, then you did not make a mistake, I think.

    Though it is true that some pedalboards are designed with special accommodation for certain models of power supply, all production pedalboards are basically blank slates, ready for you to fit whatever pedal-related equipment to them.

    With that in mind, I suggest you try this:
    • First prove that your power supply can properly power all of your pedals at once. If your pedals already are affixed to the board, okay, but if not then just lay them out on the floor for this test.
    • Next, if the power supply does not work for your pedals, use the opportunity to get a "brick" style power supply that will attach to your board more neatly.
    • But if the power supply does work for your pedals: if you didn't already, commit to a layout of your pedals on the board, leaving space for audio and power cable ends.
    • Next, plan the power cable layout, but don't attach the cable to the board yet. For example, you might want to run the daisy chain power cable on the underside of the board, then extend the power cable attachments from it, through the board slats, to the pedals on the top of the board.
    • Then attach the power cables to the pedals and make sure it all works.
    • Lastly, once it all works, attach the power cables to the board, leaving a little slack when possible. Since this is a new setup, you might start with very temporary fasteners such as twist ties; then after the new setup proves itself to you for a while (a few weeks, in which time you might change the pedal layout), replace those fasteners with something more solid such as zip ties (not too tight!)
    Good luck!

    I'm not understanding your power supply "issue"

    It's just cable, the power supply itself plugs into an outlet and can't be mounted to the board, unless you want to run an extension cable to it.
