OK, if you don't need the external hard drive to be bootable, remove the bootable flag from it. You can do this using gparted or cfdisk.

This might be your external hard. I have a seagate, and when it's pluged in, the machine even does not get turn on!

On the other system that runs Ubuntu 11.10 it works fine.
I got the problem, there was a problem of my internal hard drive and its IDE socket that get the operating system stock on the first screen.
