Hi all,


Windows 7 doesn't boot while external drive is plugged in. The moment I take it out...it boots up.



Could anyone help me out?



Thank you in advance!

When you say it does not boot up do you mean it does not power on or it boots to a blank screen. I am not sure this would be your problem but do you have USB set to be the first boot device in BIOS?
