View Full Version : UL80AG boot hangs w/ empty dvd drive

My problem with my UL80AG notebook is that if I set the optical drive as the primary boot device, and the HDD as secondary, the boot hangs after POST, when there is no media in the optical drive.

I think it should go on after a while to try booting from HDD, but it doesn't. Even after several minutes the screen is blank, with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner.

It can boot from DVD if I insert one before the hanging stage, and also boots correctly from HDD when set as primary boot device.

Thanks in advance for any hint.
