I have a old computer which is way past its prime time. It is still running however, so I installed Server 2003 to setup a file server at home.
Problem is, because it's so old, I can't extend the internal hard drives (it simply won't recognize any of my disks). Instead, I have an external USB disk I keep the family photos on.
Now, the disk registers properly when I plug it in after boot, as expected, but when the computer boots, with the disk plugged in, it hangs before POST. I have tried to find any settings to fix this in bios, but I can't find any. How can I fix this, and what should I do in case this cannot be fixed? Should I just buy a new computer as a file server?
