not sure if this is what you mean, im new to linux. when suse tries to load i get an error message after it starts trying to boot, about 2 secods after i see the logo.

....
....
RIP:0010:[<000000008010ddbf>]
....
code: bad RIP value
<0> Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task!
In idle task-not syncing
no cont in shutdown!

after i see that it just sits there, i can't type anything it just hangs up completely and this only happens if the usb is active

What happens if the USB isn't active? Try logging in as root, then typing dmesg in the console and post the output.
