go into your bios, and check if its trying to boot from the usb device first, and then floppy then harddrive.

If you go into your bios it shold say something like boot order, make sure its not trying to boot from that before your harddrive. Otherwise it could be attempting to boot from that, realizing it cant, then booting from your harddrive. Thats most likely it. thats the only reason i can think of of why it would take longer to boot with a usb device plugged in.
