I have an eSata/USB external hard drive that I would love to use via eSata. Followed all the first-start directions that came with the drive, only to find that my startup freezes when I go to turn on my computer.
Downloaded the chipset drivers, BIOS is already flashed to Lenovo 59.
Tried using the Device Manager, no love there.
Tried turning on the eSata drive at other points during startup - no matter when the drive turns on, startup freezes. If the drive is on when I turn the computer on, I freeze at the big Lenovo screen. If I turn it on at the Win7 flying lights and window screen, I freeze there.
Interestingly enough, if I turn the drive on while the computer is on, and then tell the computer to restart, I freeze at the "Windows is Shutting Down" screen.
Any ideas? I would love any help that I can get.
