PC hangs at BIOS when USB HDD is attached

Postby Johneames » Fri Dec 22, 2017 11:27 am


My Dell Inspiron desktop is about 8 years old, and is equipped with Legacy (non-UEFI) BIOS. The o/s (Win10) is loaded on the internal HDD. I have a newly-acquired USB-attached external HDD that is used for backup purposes. The problem is, my machine hangs at BIOS if I boot it with the external HDD attached. If I disconnect the external HDD, the machine boots normally.

I'm trying to determine root cause. That is, is the hang something to do specifically with my brand/model of external HDD? Or is this more to do with a limitation of Legacy BIOS?

To put it another way, because I run Legacy BIOS would I have the same kind of trouble with any brand of external HDD?

Please Help.
