Hi then I would not connect the external until you have booted into windows,you can check your bios boot options and make sure your Hard drive is set as first boot device and not boot from usb or external device.

Then you will need to do as I suggested and plug in the external once you have booted to windows.

No, past thursday i turned my pc off and the next morning pc will not started properly, and show this problem. ohh There were a message when I turned my pc on before the bios checked hdd's and everything: that asus express gate is not installed on this computer. I just disable express gate function in bios and all week until today everything was ok, but today the same problem appeared, and asus express gate function in bios were enabled.

I've done this already and express gate is still disabled, but the problem with internall hdd still actual, when pc restarting bios is detecting only external hdd, floppy drive (i don't have it at all) (I have only card reader) and dvd drive (i checked in boot device priority section in bios), internal hdd were detected only when external hdd was removed.
