RC8 Status & PC Troubles

I typically wake up early and do 3D to stay in practice, since I work in the Web industry. This morning I woke up to a PC that wouldn’t boot. It would POST, then detect the CPU, then just sit there on the energy star screen. After much troubleshooting I believe that it is a USB related issue. Unplugging all my USB devices allowed it to continue. After taking stock, it looks like my smart phone being plugged in could have been halting the process, although I have not tested this yet.


I’ve run a test and the Epic 4G is indeed the cause of this booting halt!

With all that said and done, here’s a few more updates on the almost done KTM RC8:

    It may be that your BIOS is set to boot off any available USB devices. Your phone may resemble a USB hard drive to the PC, but does not have the correct boot files, so the boot process locks up.

    You can probably change this behaviour in the BIOS boot settings screen.
