    Hi, hope someone can help!

    When I switch my Pi and Ex HD on at the wall, on the same plug, the ROMs from my HD don’t appear in Emulationstation. If I power on my External HD first, everything works as it should.

    Is there some code I can enter somewhere which will delay the start of the OS loading in order to give my hard disk enough time to power up? About 3-4 seconds would suffice I think.

    I dont know if this would help but add this to you /boot/config.txt file and see if that helps

    boot_delay=x
    Wait for x seconds in start.elf before loading kernel.
    Default 1.

    Thank you! I’ll give this a go tonight.
