    welcome to the forum

    perhaps if you plugged the usb dongle in only after boot, that would help boot only once. From the symptom, it
    seems yr usb setup isn't quite right. When you do "lspci," what usb controller says it you have? Does "lsmod" report
    usbcore, and uhci_hcd or ehci_hcd?

    hi thanks fot quick response lspci says

    00:1d.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #1 (rev 01)
    00:1d.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #2 (rev 01)
    00:1d.2 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) USB UHCI Controller #3 (rev 01)

    And usbcore reports: "lsmod"

    usbcore 134912 4 ndiswrapper,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd
