    Solved SP4 Boot Loop

    I've reset two different Surface Pro 4's. no issues as described here. I had that happen with a SP3, though. I unstuck it by doing a two button-shutdown. It was scary but, it worked.

    Connecting external HDD Kills Wifi

    Try plugging the drive in very slowly. A lot of people have reported that doing so keeps the WiFi from cutting out. No one seems to know why but, my guess would be that it gives your WiFi card a few extra milliseconds to deal with the intereference. just a WAG, though.
