I assume this partition on the removable drive is not marked "noauto" or

Since systemd can't know which mount points are essential for your
system to come up properly, the default is to drop you into a rescue
shell if the devices do not show up during boot (the timeout is 90 secs).

You can tell systemd though, which devices should be not mounted
automatically (noauto) or which are not critical if missing (nofail).

Hope that helps,
