Powered Hub Weirdness

Hello,
pi4 4gb. USB 3.0 powered hub.

with hub plugged in, pi refuses to boot.
pull the power from the hub but leave the usb plugged into the pi - boots.

anyone come across similar?
Im guessing its something to do with 5v going into the usb port on the pi?

Solution will be to leave the hub unpowered as the harddrives going into it all have their own power, but Im curious as to why its happening.

thanks
Jon
