When my system starts up with MyBook Essential hooked up the Windows System startup is slow (Windows 7 64-bit). If I disconnect the MyBook, the system starts up very fast. If I shutdown the computer, then hook the MyBook up to a different USB port, it starts up fast at least one time, but on the next reboot it is slow once again!
I have checked my BIOS settings, and Boot from usb is selected last ( I do not have option to diable it).
I have searched a lot on internet about slow usb startup issues, but have not found a solution.
(Edit/Addition original post: I have no issues with another PC that is running Windows 7 64-bit. I also have since replaced the MyBook Essential with a MyBook Elite and the same problem exists as described above. Somehow could this be related the HP Pavillion model dv6500? The MyBook Elite is listed last in the boot order, and the setup management does not allow it to be disabled from any use on the HP Pavillion)
