It doesn't. It did not complete the configuration and tries it
repeatedly.

Does this drive enclosure have external power?
I have one that gives me exactly the same symptoms on my laptop. A 2.5"
drive in usb enclosure, and the laptop was unable to provide enough
power via the usb port for it. (My desktop PC had no problems with it
and does not need the external power.) When I attach an external power
source to the enclosure the drive behaves and is configured properly
first time.

It work on Windows, but yes it can work on external power but I have it switched to USB.

Unfortunately for me it didn't come with a power cord ,but I'll try and get one.
