    USB stick prevents boot since update to 1903 - and slowwwwwww performa


    Hi out there,

    Surprise, surprise! Since (painfully) updating to 1903: several new problems.

    Two of the main ones:

    When having any USB stick plugged in, boot is halted almost after startup. Unplugging the stick(s) and hitting Enter resumes boot. Plugging USB stick(s) back in after boot makes them function normally.
    Judging from the several
    Internet pages o,n the same topic, this is already an old Windows quirk. But I never had it before the 1903 update... which was done after a totally and deep clean reinstall of Windows (what else is new with Windows updates?)

    But the preceding quirl is but a minor annoyance compared to the following, post 1903 update: the whole computer has slowed down to a snail crawl, keuboard and mouse reaction included, which gradually gets faster after half an hour or so, but never up to the pre-update level - and again I don't seem the only victim,of this marvellous new Microsoft enhancement.

    So, what am I to do? Please help me with a solution, with the second problem a priority.

    PS - I am now trying out the "solution" proposed by the Windows specialist in:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...9-e1bb9207b9d1
    But it is painfully slow, and I have not great confidence in the result...

    Thanks,



    :)

    USB boot for bios update

    Did the first step. It already doesn't work. Note the capacities and drive letters M:/N: The HP utility is about to format my raid-1 volume containing my 2 750gb drives. It thinks it's the usb stick. I can not select any other drives in the HP utility. My 512mb usb stick is U:.

    Any other suggestions?

    Installing windows off of a USB stick

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk
