I recently installed 2x120GB SSD’s in a RAID 0. I have a WD 3TB External HDD (WDC WD30EZRX-00MMMB0) hooked up to my USB port on my tower/MOBO. The problem I am having is when I boot up my computer, this HDD is somehow trying to take control of my USB devices. What I mean by this is, when I boot up, ALL my USB devices (Keyboards, mice, ect.) are unusable for up to 1-2 minutes. Whereas, with this HDD unpluged from the system, I boot up within 13 seconds and I can use everything immeadiatly.
What is causing this issue? I have been in my BIOS and the external HDD is not even Enabled in the BIOS as a Bootable Device. I have a Rampage II Extream MOBO.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! For now, I have it hooked up to a USB Hub and Everything starts up perfectly, while this HDD taked a few minutes to innitialize, which I can live with, as I only use it to store Data on it…
Thanks in advance!
