My computer freezes on the screen that says "Asus in search of incredible... Please press DEL or F2 to enter UEFI BIOS setting" whenever I try to enter the bios by doing what it says, however this only happens when I have my external hard drive plugged in. I installed a linux operating system on the hard drive and then removed it, and then messed around with the formatting and partitioning, and i'm suspecting that some of this tampering is the cause of this. I have now, reset the external hard drive entirely and I just updated my BIOS but still, it freezes when i try to open the BIOS upon boot when I have the external hard drive plugged in.

And can I also mention that I want to be able to use this external hard drive again as a bootable device.
