server reboot issue

We have a Proliant ML110 G2 server running Windows Server 2003 with all Microsoft updates, and the latest BIOS, that won't reboot while a USB external hard drive is plugged in.

It goes through part of the startup, then justs reboots, and goes through the same process over and over until we unplug the external drive.

I have looked at the settings in the CMOS, but didn't see anything pertaining to this. Is there a setting somewhere that would allow it to reboot with an external USB drive attached?
