Question about Western Digital 250GB MyBook External USB 2.0 250 GB Hard Drive
I just purchased a Western Digital External Hard Drive and it seems to be working well so far (fingers crossed) with one exception. I have to unplug it each time I reboot. Otherwise, my bootup screen hangs and I have to do a manual shutdown, unplug the USB, and then reboot.
Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem.
Thanks in advance for any tips I could try.
Your computer is trying to boot from the drive. Go into your system BIOS and you should find a menu called "Boot Options" or something similar. Once there, deselect "USB Boot" from the list.
