Im running some scada software on my pc, and i need a dongle to run it. My pc
only has USB and Serial ports , so i got a USB dongle.
Im trying to get the software to startup straight away, but the USB wont
detect the dongle unitl 2 minutes later, is there anyway of changing the
bootup priority, for the serial/ USB drivers. I really need to get this
sorted in a hurry, as ive been on this problem and others for over 2 weeks
now!

You can not. USB loads during the Windows GUI start-up and not before.

just a thought, if thats the case why do usb peripherals work prior to
windows gui ? i.e. keyboard/mouse etc, not a criticism just a genuine point
to ponder

there are no problems, just challenges

Only if the BIOS is set to support USB Keyboard and Mouse. Otherwise you
can't do anything till the drivers get loaded.
