Windows 10 won't start with external drive connected

I have a My Book 8TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive
The drive seems to be functioning well except that my Windows 10 PC won’t start while the drive is connected. The system hangs up on a black screen with my monitor’s logo. It never brings up Windows and I can’t do anything but shut it down manually. When I disconnect the drive, the pc restarts with no problem. After a few minutes, I can reconnect the external drive and it works fine.

System information (in case it might help):
Dell i5 desktop with 24 GB RAM
1 GB SSD C drive
Windows 10
I also have another WD 4 GB external drive connected

Any suggestions?
Thank you
Kevin

Hi RevKev55,

I would suggest you to try and connect the drive on a different computer to isolate the issue.
