bios setting

Okay so when I boot to windows with my external hard drive plugged in, my computer restarts just after post. it starts fine when i unplug the hard drive. and then plug it back in once windows is starting to load.

the mobo i believe is seeing this as a boot disk. and i've turned off usb boot but it still does it.

any idea's about what setting to change?

  5. Move the cd up one position and remove the second HDD entry.
    that should do it.
