    External Hard Drive stopping PC during start up

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern that the PC will not reboot while connected with external hard drive.

    I suggest you to do the following to detect the issue:

    • Connect the hard drive to different port and check if the issue persists.
    • Connect different hard drive to the same port and check.
    • Connect different hard drives to different ports and check.

    Please perform the above and let us know the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you further.

    Hard drive advice?

    i tried to install RHL - 9 on my Compaq Presario PC and got a msg "No Hard Drives detected". However Windows is running on my PC and when i tried to install Ubuntu-Linux for Human Beings, it detected the presence of the hard drive and showed the existing partitions.

    I tried to find the HDD driver thru windows but got nothing matching with the manually loadable drivers in RHL that r listed during installation.

    the hard disk in my PC is a SATA one and its number is WDC- followed by some numbers.

    plz,can anyone bail me out from this predicament?
