Question about LaCie Hard Disk 1TB Desktop with Hi-Speed USB2.0 USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Hi there, I write because I just bought a Lacie Desktop Hard Disk 1 TB USB.
I have tried to look into FAQ in LaCie's website and also googled, but I can't find my exact problem:
The hard disk works all well when the PCs are already turned on, but with two of my PCs, it is not possible to reboot either of the PCs with the LaCie desktop hard disk connected. (But on the other hand, I tested the LaCie hard disk my notebook and it works like a charm to reboot it with the Lacie hard disk connected, but since it's with my two other PCs that I am to use the external LaCie hard disk, and not on my notebook, it's no solution to me.)
What happens is simply that when I reboot, the picture remains on the first screen where one is asked whether to press del to enter setup or tab for BIOS. But if I try either of the options, nothing happens. I wanted to be able to enter the bios to see whether I could change the priorities, but since it wouldn't enter the bios with the Lacie connected, it seems to me an impossible task. Well, the "first" image just remains when trying to boot the PCs. But if I disconnect the LaCie and then try to reboot, both PCs boot perfectly well again. Both PCs are quite new and have what I think is called onboard motherboard (where the USB ports, audio inputs etc etc. are all on the motherboard and not on their own PCI slots like on older PCs). I have several older LaCie hard disks, and I haven't encountered any problems with these earlier models.
So I am curious about what the solution will be.
It is surely a big inconvenience if I will have to disconnect the USB cable from the Lacie hard disk for each time I am to restart the PCs, and wait till the PC is rebooted to connect the USB cable back to the LaCie hard disk again.
Thank you very much for trying to help me solve this problem.

Changing the boot order doesn't work. I've even disabled the third boot device option to eliminate the USB LaCie disk and the PC steadfastly refuses to boot with it turned on. This is a right PITA. It has to have something to do with the disc. I'm going to try re-formatting it to see if that works..

You can enter the bios on bootup by pressing a special key to force your computer to go into BIOS mode. What key this is varies by computer, often it is F8, F10, sometines F11. Anyway, use the key for your computer, and change to boot modus to not first boot from USB.
