[SOLVED]Chimera hangs while booting

Well, as the title says, i'm having a problem with my Seagate GoFlex (external USB HDD). Every time i turn on my hack, while my external hdd is plugged in, chimera hangs showing the dash moving. Sometimes, and only sometimes, while my hack is off, if i change the usb port of the hdd, it will boot. The only way I can boot is plugging the hdd after SL loaded, which is kinda annoying. I've also tried to disable "LEGACY USB SUPPORT" in the bios, and i think it will boot, at least i get to the chimera screen, but i do anything 'coz my keyboard does not work. Maybe if I can limit the drives that chimera can see it will boot, but i dont know if it is possible.
I dont know if this is relevant or not, but i have 3 partitions on that disk, first and second are NTFS for my docs and music, the third partition is a HFS+ for a CCC backup of my system, it is also formatted Master Boot Record.
Sooo any tip or idea is welcome!

EDIT:
I added Scan Single Drive=Yes on the boot.plist and it solved the problem
