Might also try changing boot settings in BIOS so the PC does not attempt to boot from USB devices, in this case the external hard disk.

I have a western digital 1 TB my Book hard drive. Lost usb cable. what specs are needed to replace it and where can I get one?


There are a couple mini USB connectors out there, especially in digital cameras.
But what you need is the most common USB A -> USB Mini B cable, as used with many MP3 players, USB hubs, cellphones etc.
For example, a Nokia DKE-2 cable will work perfectly.

Windows Server trying to boot from external hard drive


go into your 'update settings'. there is a section of where it asks you about how you want your settings set and where to send updates to. You may find the problem here. Check all the 'advanced' settings as well. If your Western digital is plugged in via USB and not requiring updates, unplug it while starting your system, after complete start up, reinsert the USB plug. It may show new devise found, then from here, you may be asked to reinstall it to stop the rebooting.

You need to go into the BIOS of your computer and change the boot order of your computer.  Your computer must be set to boot from your main hard drive only.

Mine boots fine if I unplug (better yet, hold the flat button down on the back for about 5 seconds, and it will turn off).

Boot up


The "boot from USB" has to be disabled in your BIOS. If you don't know how, try to put the disk in another USB port - it might work.
