WD External Hard Drive
I just added a Western Digital External Hard Drive. After adding the drive,
Windows Vista takes a much longer time to boot up.

The drive works fine. Is there some issue which is causing the long boot
time.

I have been told that the external drive should be removed prior to shut
down and then attached again when needed after the system is back up and
running.

Re: WD External Hard Drive
If you connected the external drive via fire wire, disconnect it
and connect via a USB cable instead.
