HDD Problem?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey,

So I'm currently running a setup with 1 1TB HDD and 2 external HDDs. I'm getting this weird error when I connect the external HDDs during boot. If I leave them connected, boot goes to the mobo manufacture screen, blacks out, then goes back to the mobo screen in a loop that never ends. During this time my keyboard will not work so I'm unable to go into BIOS.

If I boot without the HDDs connected it seems to work fine.

I'm thinking that my computer somehow has decided to try to boot from the externals instead of my OS partition when the externals are connected. However, I can't seem to fix this in BIOS as the externals don't even show up on BIOS. Any ideas?

Thanks.

In the BIOS bootmenu you want to exclude USB Mass Storage Devices from the boot order, however if you cannot load BIOS while the USB HDD's are connected then you wont be able to see this option in the boot order menu. Try using a PS/2 keyboard while hitting "Delete" or specified Fkey to enter BIOS when logo appears; some motherboards don't support USB until after initialized.
