This is not unusual, and I don't think there's a way around it if you
actually want to be able to boot off USB.  If you have told the BIOS to
include USB in the boot order, ahead of your hard drive, then you can't
connect any unbootable USB storage media before booting.  otoh, if you
don't intend to boot from USB in the near future, just go into the BIOS set
up and turn it off.
