Is your hub only USB or does it have any other connections (Audio, network, etc)?
I just installed a Belkin USB hub. It's powered. I just pulled the power from the 5v leg of my M2Atx. Everything functions properly; however, when I reboot it just hangs at the "starting windows" screen. Initially I didn't realize what the problem was so after several failed reboot attempts I put the windows disk in to initiate a "repair". Well, after it loaded the drivers to go into the repair mode, it hung on "starting windows" and then it hit me that the DVD/CD player was connected to the same USB. I disconnected the hub and restarted and all works again. I can plug it in after startup and everythign works. Any suggestions on a solution? Any help would be greatly appreicated.
Sorry, it's only a USB hub. It has a mini-usb input and a power input and then 4 outputs. Right now I have my DVD player and Iphone charger/interface connected to it. And that's it. Disconnecting any of the peripherals doesn't change anything....only helps if I disconnect the hub itself.
Try a different hub.
You could always disable the BIOS boot from USB/other devices. Sometimes that can hang it.
i would get a different hub and chalk it up to experience (even if it was a $60 hub, you are still losing less than me-- i went through 3-$200 audio cards!).
