Have you checked if the usb hardware isn't faulty by trying it on another computer?

The symptom of a PC NOT BOOTING with a device in the USB port is caused by EXCESSIVE POWER being drawn by the USB device from the PC's motherboard.

Enable your self-powered hub so that IT supplies the power vs. your USB port.  That, in all probability, will resolve this.

You can buy an powered USB-hub, or you can borrow one from a friend first to try if it solves your problem.
But have you tried it in another computer yet to see if it works there? This is because I think you're talking about a powered USB device.

Try to disconnect cd-rom cdr secondary hd and other devices leaving only boot hd, ram, cpu, video card and usb device.
Try to boot.

If the problem is the Excessive Power, you can try to change the power supply of your Pc, try something around 500W.
