I have Dell Optiplex 760's. If they are turned off and you boot them up with the BB, bold or curve, plugged in they try to boot from the BB and you just get a black screen with a flashing white cursor? The Mass Storage is turned off on the BB's and it is set to boot from the HDD on the PC's.
Any ideas anyone???
Many older pc's do this. If an external drive is connected or a CD is inserted they override the BIOS startup order and just select that external drive. What Operating System are you running on the pc's? Windows 7 supposedly remedied this behavior, but I have yet to try it.
Unfortunately that's the whole point! I need the usb to be able to synch and charge the BlackBerry. I have tried the bios, i have changed the boot sequence, i dont have the boot from other devices option, I have set the bios order and boot to only SATA HDD and the bios is not set to boot from usb.
On the BlackBerry side of things through a policy on the BES server the Mass Storage Mode has been turned off. I have however tried booting with an oild 8800 plugged in and it boots fine. Just doesn't boot with the Bold or Curve plugged in.
Looks like it may be on the side of the BlackBerry that's causing all the problems but what???
Unplug the blackberry before you turn the computer on... Sometimes, your computer will try to boot using peripheral devices such as flash drives and cameras (or a blackberry) that is plugged in, regardless of the boot sequence in the BIOS
