USB Key Stops System Boot Up.

Hello All,

I insert my USB key into the USB port, power on the system and then try to boot my Centos5 (like Red Hat) and the system doesn't boot.

All is O.K. without plugging in the USB key.

Any to suggestions to resolve this issue will be appreciated.

Go to your bios and change the boot order. I think the bios is selecting to boot off of the USB stick first before your harddrive.
