USB causing boot problems.

8K5A3+, 10/25/02 BIOS.

Problem. Whenever I have any USB card reader plugged into a USB port or header I get a screen freeze at "Verifying DMI Pool Data". Normally, this is not a problem as I would unplug my old external card reader before a reboot. I recently upgraded to a nice internal USB2 reader and it is a pain to plug it into the USB3 port everytime I decide to reboot.

I have tried all of the BIOS settings I can think of (Boot Order etc) to no avail. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Once the reader is plugged in after reboot it works great, just freezes up the sys on boot.

Thanx.

BTW, are you using WinXP Pro and if so, do you have SP1 install or are you using some "other" USB 2.0 drivers for the onbord USB 2.0?

WIN2K and SP4. The drivers are the Microsoft USB 2.0 as posted on the EPOX USA site.

The operating system cannot affect the mainboards booting ability apart from in relation to ACPI data written to southbridge on system reset.

That is well and good, but do you have any solution to my problem? I find it hard to fathom why EPOX would build a board that cannot boot from HDD-0 with a USB storage device attached, hence I assume the problem is on my end of the equation, hence my post for some help/information.

Did you already try to disable the USB support for mouse and keyboard in BIOS?

I have a similar problem if my USB scanner is powered up when I boot.

Yup, it was never enabled to begin with, call me old fashioned but I am happy with a PS2 keyboard/mouse. The sad part is EPOX tech support is telling me I have my reader installed wrong or my power supply is insufficient. ????????? I am on my second CF reader and they both work correctly if plugged in/installed after bootup, getting it to boot with a USB reader installed is the bitch.

Hate to ressurect an old thread, but I've just bought a Twinmos USB 8in1 card reader for my 8RGA+ rig. Hooked it up and Win2k SP4 recognised it without a hitch, suffice to say the device works perfectly in windows.

Upon reboot, the system locks up at the hard drive/cd boot device post screen as mentioned above. At this point I can pull out the usb cable for the reader, and then the POST resumes and win2k fires up as usual. I've only been experimenting with the way the bios boots up, but without any luck. I figured that the system was trying to boot off the reader hence the lockup, so I setup the bios to boot off HDD-0 only. Well that resulted in the same prob. Anyone found a way past this?

For now I've got to use the system with the card reader disconnected. When I need to use the reader, I connect the usb cable to it. Its a bit cumbersome though
