ThinkPad P51 / Thunderbolt 3 Dock

2018-07-31, 17:41 PM

I have a new P51, 64 GB ram, SSD hard drive. Ihave a docking station at work and one at home. The one at home has a 6 TB Seagate BarraCuda pro USB3 drive attached. When I dock the laptop at home, the system will not boot. It gets to the bios boot sceen and stays there until I turn off or disconnect the USB drive. Once I do that, it continues to boot and if I turn the USB drive back on, it works fine.


If the drive is my old 1 TB barracuda, it boots normally.
