|I have 2 external hard drives as backup attached to the HP Machine for backup purposes.|
The problem is that the clock battery went dead. I replaced the battery, however, now the bios polls all the backup external drives, taking a very long time to boot.
I have the Phoenix Award Bios, v6.00PG. In the bios setup, I can find no way to set the HDGroup to ignore these external drives. Apparently, there is a way to do it, as this problem did not start until the clock battery went dead and was replaced.
Any suggestions other than unplugging the external hard drives?
