I've been trying to search for a physical adapter that would accept a USB (not a flash drive, but a software dongle) and connect into a USB port that would literally delay the pass-through of the device to the port.
Specifically, the computer/BIOS is set to boot to the USB drive first, which I must emphasize cannot be changed. Also the goal is to leave the device plugged in because the computer powers on and off regularly and the port is located in a difficult place to reach frequently. The dongle is causing start up issues since it is not a bootable drive. I need a physical device to prevent power and/or data connection when it receives power with the PC is booting. Or some other creative way to get around this.
