Ok

Ok here is what I would do remove the hard drive from the case but leave the case plugged in and try a boot and see if it may be a problem with the SATA circuit in the case

USB Port

have you tried another USB port also did you enable Bit Locker Drive Encryption on that drive that would be something that XP did not have but 7 does

Bios setting

In the bios, choose to not use/recognize legacy USB devices that should solve your problem
