Whenever I have a my external Harddrive or card reader connected to any of my USB ports my PC gives the non-system disk error and will not boot.Removing them and PC boots into windows ok....Anyone have a solution so I can keep my external HD & card reader installed on bootup?AMD 64 3700XP HOME
Check in bios that it is not set to boot from usb device first.
Boot sequence-FLOPPYHDDCDI have my mouse connected to a USB ok.
Would the problem most likely be BIOS related?Seems strange that I only get it on start up and only when the external HD & card reader are connected via USB.If I fit them via the USB after PC has booted up everything works fine no problem.
Its not uncommon for USB devices to give problems at boot.I have a USB card reader,I have known occasions where leaving it connected during reinstall has had XP trying to load itself to a 32Mb card(and failing,for some strange reason) ;-)
Chegs.......Yes the problem seems to be when I have a 1G card in the reader....removing it appears to correct that........I have no solution to the HD problem though :(
It was bios related.
