So you should have tried scandelay=0, not bootdelay=0 or boot_delay=0.
I stand corrected. I have tried it, and what you reffered to in your post before, but haven't noticed the difference in wording at first.
I tried now with 0 but it doesn't make a difference with USB drives in.
Apologies for leading us both on wrong trails, should have removed peripherals first before changing anything.
I will stick around this time Thanks again.
