I am trying to troubleshoot a PC issue for a client. I am trying to rule out a problem with the HDD and am trying to boot an UBCD USB drive.

Unfortunately when ever the HDD is connected it will not boot from the USB. If I disconnect the HDD then it will boot from the USB.

I have changed the Boot order to boot from the UEFI device which is the USB drive.
