    I installed a wireless usb adapter on quite an old packard bell computer,
    now the computer won't boot up, it will show the bios screen, but gets stuck
    before recognizing the drives, unless i unplug the wireless adapter.
    I saw this happen before to a newer dell, but with a usb printer, the
    printer would have to be unplugged for a succesful boot up. Once in windows
    i can plug the devices back in no problem, but it's getting to be a little
    annoying.

    I too have seen this - I have never remedied it however and assumed in my
    instance that the hub needed to be powered. I either thought that or the
    power settings in BIOS where causing the problem...
