hi experts, i have a windows 7 system.
i currently have a maxtor 250gb [one touch] connected via usb. its been there for years, systems starts/restarts just fine.
however, i have two other external usb drives i use, another maxtor, and a generic one. however when these two are connected... the system doesnt boot up properly, stops and just sits at one point during post.
ive look at the disk manager to see what attributes each drive has:
the ext. drive that is ok when system starts up has "healthy, active, primary partition'
also, ive went into the bios and disabled the usb boot option , and still no go when those 2 drives are connected when system starts up.
