Default usb hub keep pc from booting

Iím running an old dinasore pc and I tried to plug a usb hub into it and when I boot the pc it just stops before it even boots. Can I change something in the Bios? Or its there nothing I can do.

Thanks

the bios is checking it for a boot record.
you should be able to disable the usb booting feature or put it at the bottom of the boot list.
I like mine as follows,
1. cd rom
2. hard drive
3 floppy, usb, network, etc.

its not uncommon for this to be an issue and alot of the times the bios doesnt even have a setting for boot from USB as this problem does tend to be with older machines which dont support that function.

you can always try a bios update

We'll I decided I want to try the new magicjack out. But Its usb and I only have 2 usb plugs on this MFD pc 1999. I have a scanner, printer, hub, camera, joy stick and I don't know what else. I do enough usb plug swapping one more usb wire and I might go over the edge. And one thing is for sure I can't afford a new pc right now.

Well I tried arraging my boot sequence to:
1. cd
2. hd
3. network
4. floppy

Actually this is what it was already set to.

A bios update sounds about like the only option for me.

I have a Gateway, Intell Pentium 2,
What more info do I need to get a bios update?
